Have you ever found yourself at a loss for words, unable to speak up in challenging exchanges with coworkers, bosses, or family members?

Have you ever found yourself at a loss for words, unable to speak up in challenging exchanges with coworkers, bosses, or family members?

As women, we are socialized and conditioned to shut down in these moments. But this is something that we can change with practice.

Here are a few facts from the Canadian Women’s Foundation that illustrate why this is so important:

  • According to a 2014 poll, 43% of women have been sexually harassed in their workplace.
  • Half of all women in Canada have experienced at least one incident of physical or sexual violence since the age of 16.
  • From a young age, girls are socialized to “be nice” and to behave passively in response to conflict. Experts and survivors say the pressure to be polite is so ingrained that it can make speaking up about assault or harassment very difficult.
  • 80% of sexual assault is committed by someone the survivor knows.
