Signs of internalized misogyny that we need to do away with (ii)

Misogyny is why a woman in a boardroom will be shut down so a man can say the same thing she is been trying to say or a girl is raised solely to remain in the kitchen even if she wants to be a lawyer. But internalized misogyny is why a woman would accept it and begin to believe the crap she is being fed with. 

Usually, it happens unconsciously to each of us but how? Let me show you. 

6. Making excuses for men

This is when a woman would be a victim and you will make excuses for the man like "she provoked him", "what was she wearing?", "he was drunk", etc. 

7. Assuming that feminine things aren't feminists 

In the feminist struggle, there are so many women who have come to believe that weaves, high-heeled shoes, body-fitting dresses etc. are not feminist so they shame other women for wearing them. That's also a sign of internalized misogyny because you're trying so hard to reject what society tells you is womanly. 

8. Feeling guilty 

At times, you feel guilty for pursuing what they want and making unpopular decisions because you are told women don't act that way.

9. Trying too hard to be perfect 

At times, you seek validation so you try not to be either extreme of the spectrum- you're not too opinionated or too girly. There is no need for that kind of balance. Just be yourself. 

10. Having double standards 

When a man does something like coming back home late, it is okay but if a woman does it then she is a slut. Having that kind of mindset is a product of sexism and internalized misogyny. 

It is not easy to break out of the mould and speak up against misogyny but it is good to recognize how it plays out so you can push back little by little.
