With that in mind, it should come as no surprise that Warren dropped a new video on Twitter Tuesday night, in which, from her kitchen, she read some of those stories of discrimination from her phone, noting that sharing stories is “a good way to fight back.”
Here’s one from JCBC: In the early 2000s, I was nontenured faculty, was offered a contract for a year after pregnancy, asked for reduced workload in order to care for infant and was told no; asked for a year of unpaid leave instead and was granted that, but was not offered a contract for the following year.
That is just one of the stories that Warren reads. This video is worth watching in its entirety. Warren’s passion is palpable, and the stories are infuriating.
Warren closes the video by again asking women to keep telling their stories, because they are important, and this is how we make real change. Warren brilliantly took a negative experience and turned it into a springboard for fighting discrimination. Bravo!
