women for women
women need to understand the importance of supporting other women.

Today, in class, my lecturer showed us a video clip of Anna Wintour. Once it started playing, my friend immediately said (quite loudly), "she looks like such a typical bitch." Now, that's not very nice, is it?

I don't understand why people do things like that. Judging others without even knowing the context and understanding a situation completely.

This was probably the first time my friend had heard of and seen Anna Wintour's face. And right at the first moment, she passed off that comment. God. It's just so frustrating to see women insult other women just immediately the moment they see that they are successful, powerful females. This is especially so since we've had a long history of being oppressed. If you believe in gender equality, then you gotta stop doing this kind of things. Be more aware of what comes out of your mouth. If you've done your research on a particular person, understood her story, and still feel that she is a "bitch", be it because you feel that her means of reaching her success was unethical or just was not something you agree to or believe in, then fine. But don't immediately put a demeaning label on another female just because she looks to be exuding power and control, because I'm sure you would not do the same if you were watching a video of a male.

I have so much I actually want to say but I realised that I'm not actually that great at putting thoughts into coherent words. But I hope you get what I mean.
