We’ve all heard the myth that women don’t support each other — but it’s not true. Women are incredible allies, and we accomplish amazing things when we support each other.
Here are five simple things — backed by social science research — that we can do every day to advocate for the women in our lives.
1. Challenge the Likability Penalty
2. Celebrate Women’s Accomplishments
3. Make Sure Women’s Ideas Are Heard
4. Become a Mentor
5. Join a Lean In Circle
