Sexism undermines a woman's value. Unfortunately, it is a common experience many women share. Studies show that sexism can shape how women think, feel, and behave. It can also influence a woman's self-esteem and lead to feelings of shame and insecurity. This important resource will help young people recognize sexism and sexist language, learn how to respond when they find themselves on the receiving end of sexist comments, and where they can go to report sexist behaviors or to get help. This text features a list of suggested questions to ask an expert and myths and facts about discrimination.
