The Everyday Sexism Project was founded by writer and activist Laura Bates in April 2012. It began life as a website where people could share their experiences of daily, normalized sexism, from street harassment to workplace discrimination to sexual assault and rape.

The Project became a viral sensation, attracting international press attention from The New York Times to French Glamour , Grazia South Africa , to the Times of India and support from celebrities such as Rose McGowan, Amanda Palmer, Mara Wilson, Ashley Judd, James Corden, Simon Pegg, and many others. The project has now collected over 100,000 testimonies from people around the world and launched new branches in 25 countries worldwide. The project has been credited with helping to spark a new wave of feminism.

Another whiney book on something ill defined in these modern times. You see, it is not sexist to be against female politicians both directly and indirectly responsible for the deaths of thousands, and hundreds of thousands, of innocents - - it is not only sexist but blatantly amoral to excuse such horrendous and diabolical behavior.
Thus people who wish to differentiate between pols like Trump, so far no deaths on his docket and Hillary Rodham Clinton --- deaths in the military coup and aftermath in Honduras, deaths in the overthrow of the democratically elected president of Ukraine, deaths in destabilized North African countries, et cetera, et cetera. [Not to mention working for FTAs which destroy lives and occupations by offshoring hundreds of thousands and millions of jobs!]
It is sexist when pathetic NPR show hosts, like John Hockenberry, prattle on about how everything will be better - - in government and on Wall Street - - when women are in charge [FYI, moronic John, many women were involved in the global economic meltdown, and the few who wouldn't take part, like their male counterparts, were summarily fired [Keysha Cooper at WaMu - - Carmen Segarra and others, et cetera]!
