What can you do? Get out and box! And don’t be shy to speak up, like Liz did, when something sexist doesn’t sit right. “We can’t let go of these really strict traditional gender norms. We like to think that we’ve moved beyond sexism—that we’ve moved beyond gender inequality because women can vote and women can work—but there’s still such an emphasis and value based on women’s appearance that we don’t see with men.”
 
All of this is no reason to despair. It is reason to get active. Liz sums it up: “It’s amazing to feel strong.”
