Why we can't and shouldn't ignore sexism

It is well past time that we begin paying attention to sexism. It is well past time that we begin actually doing something about it. The other day, I was walking through the doors of the Mark Jefferson building to get to my chemistry class.

No parent ever wants to think about something terrible happening to his or her children—I know I always get chills thinking about it—but, the fact of the matter is that it happens and, according to the National Library of Medicine, the leading cause of death among children who have reached their first birthday is accidents which cause them to sustain fatal injuries.
