Don’t wait to speak up

In addressing why women don’t always seek clarity right away or speak up when they feel mistreated, Dr. Joy says, “Often women wait too long to speak up about something because they think they’re making it a big deal. [They say] ‘I don’t want to ruffle feathers.’ But, if you felt a way, it has become a thing. Brushing things off is toxic, and harmful for a woman’s mental health.”
