Play Patriarchy Chicken

Here's a new game to play on your commute to work—patriarchy chicken. Just refuse to get out of the way for men as you walk along. (Note, this is for walking commutes, not driving. Please no car chicken here!)

Usually, as a woman, you find yourself dodging walls of men. Men have been socialized to take up space and women to adapt. Trust me, there will be a few collisions, but practicing this on something as low-risk as your commute builds your ability to do stand your ground when it does count, like in that big meeting.

So, today, put on a big smile and hold your ground. #mindset #career #selftalk
