Indiana native. 23. University communications, journalism and social media. Religiously runs, occasionally backslides. Opinions are my own.
So this happened today.
It’s been an exhausting week, so I don’t feel much like narrating. If you’ve read Politco’s article about Jill Abramson as an "unpopular" boss at the New York Times and then read the subsequent remarks, you’ll understand these Tweets.
The other day I reblogged Ann Friedman’s clever comparison of the criticism Abramson received versus the criticism she’d receive if she were a man. I Tweeted the same link and I got the above reaction, in addition to dozens of retweets and favorited tweets from, mostly, women.
It was disconcerting. Sexism is much more imbedded into our culture than I thought.
