We are living in a time of great flux. It's a time when traditional gender roles are being challenged and society is finally warming to the idea that people, regardless of gender, should be judged on the basis of their character and accomplishments. Feminism has been treated like a four-letter word by those in power for far too long. Sexist language, metaphors and symbols are so engrained in our culture that everyone must not only look at how they treat others in the workplace but, monitor how and what they teach their children. It will take generations to unravel the wraps of inequality prevalent in literature and language. Think about the words you use before you exclude the 51 percent minority.
