28 Of Our Best Posts About Sexism That Will Make You Angry

We love to write about so many things on Gurl. A lot of these things are light-hearted, fun, or even silly, like sarcastic tips in our Lazy Girl’s Guide, or DIY projects to try, relationship advice, or even just hilarious Tumblr blogs. But we also make it a point to write about the more important discussions you should all be having. One example? Sexism. If you truly believe that sexism is gone from the world, then please tell me what rock you’ve been hiding under. It sounds quite pleasant.

Yes, we’ve come a long way, but sexism is still very much alive and happening today. Even when you guys want to call us “too sensitive,” we still take it upon ourselves to call out sexism when we see it. We also try to help you learn how to deal with sexism. We’ve written so much about the issue that I wanted to put everything together into one neat place. Here are 28 of our best posts about sexism that might make you angry:
