Many of our readers know that I fight fiercely for the empowerment of women, not by diminishing men, but by arguing for the simple removal of artificial gender barriers like the glass ceiling and other cultural artifacts from the past. Without these barriers, the best person will (or at least, has a chance to) win out. While microbudget content creating can remove many of these barriers at our level, what happens when you move on to the next level, where more money is on the line?
The challenge is that, much like racism, gender bias is so built into our world that most of us don't realize it's there. (And it's not just men doing it; women often continue the gender bias inadvertently even when they are in positions to change things.)
