Sometimes I see sexism even in places where nobody else sees it, which makes me extra cautious about making a comment. But this is not one of those times, and Venezuela’s opposition is not one of those places – the sexism there is rampant, and in-your-face.
Case in point: just a few days ago, we learned that only 10% of the candidates for the opposition’s primaries to select folks for the National Assembly will be women.
This is just plain wrong. And if you disagree with me, think about it … how many national political figures in the opposition are women? Maria Corina. Maybe Evelnyg. Delsa? And … that’s it. Ask yourself why that is.
Have a great weekend, everyone.
