I think your answer to #15 is very true. I hadn't thought of it when I answering the meme, but you're right.

#15 is very true you are right, my 35 year old daughter is struggling against that little bit of sexism at family gatherings. I don't think she follows my blog but I try not to talk about the girls struggles as women, but I know that she does not follow my commenting.
