Abstract

Sexism has consequences for you, for us, for everyone. Sexism, as the stories in this book show,
discriminates across and along different gender identifications, and by shaping our language,
relationships, and collaborations, it affects and diminishes us all. Some speak up and question sexism,
others try to challenge it more subtly; but mostly we either simply don’t recognize it, or if we do, we
adapt to it or try to avoid it as an issue. We are all implicated in instances of sexism. Even if we haven’t
personally experienced sexism, we are likely to witness it or perhaps even behave sexist although this
might not be our intention. Reading this book might serve as an eye-opener, allowing us to realize that
we have, in fact, experienced sexism. This is all due to the troubling effects of how sexism has become
so naturalized and normal that we often don’t even notice it. This book will provide us with the ability
to see it, to name it, and to respond to it.
