The Everyday Sexism Project is dedicated to chronicling day-to-day instances of sexism, whether they be severe or negligible. Women are encouraged to contribute their personal experiences, in hopes that sharing their story will make an impact on the very real issues of gendered and sexual inequality and prejudice. Their latest venture is to collect "comebacks" to sexist comments, jokes and harassment via their Twitter. The Guardian compiled some of the more biting, humorous and downright clever comebacks.
For the ladies, browsing these will give you inspiration the next time someone makes an inappropriate remark. For the gentlemen, maybe these cutting comments will make you think twice before you try to pay a girl a ‘compliment’ that she might not find so flattering. Though these are a crucial part of an important project, these comebacks are still highly entertaining. You go girls!
