That’s too long. All of us need to actively work to overcome what for most is probably an unconscious bias. When we see women interrupted, peers should step in and ask that they finish what they were saying. But we all must also make a point of consciously turning to women for their ideas, everywhere from our workplaces to local elections to Twitter — and then listening up.
Women should of course be given equal opportunities to speak, but that won’t solve the problem unless audiences come to actually appreciate what we have to say.
