“Why can’t we be as direct as men? What’s wrong with that? You can still be direct and be graceful about it where a man doesn’t feel like you are trying to be this or that. At the end of the day I feel like we’ve been completely brainwashed into thinking this is how women should be, this is how men should be, these are our roles. And now, that’s kind of being broken through. Because the “old establishment” isn’t used to this new way, they are putting these words of “bitchiness”, “oh she is this, oh she is that...”, and that’s their fear.”

“...Before you don’t think this is something affecting you, so you just press it. You just say “it’s ok, I can handle this, it’s no big deal…”And the “MeToo” movement is a time for me of recognition. You realize it is not just something you should take in.”
