Gaslighting

Happy birthday Feminine Mystique! Listen to one of my favorite columnist interview a panel of rad, righteous women: http://www.nytimes.com/roomfordebate/2013/02/12/if-women-can-have-it-all-why-are-they-still-angry/?hp.  And this is an AWESOME piece by an articulate ally.  He speaks about “gaslighting”, which is the manipulation of women through presenting false information to alter the victim’s perception of herself. It is these micro-aggressions that lead to structural discrimination of women.  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/yashar-hedayat/a-message-to-women-from-a_1_b_958859.html
