“Racism, misogyny, and homophobia are so deeply embedded in society that a lot of people don’t even notice when they occur. It’s our job to call these instances out.”

Elizabeth’s best practices for work-life balance and well-being for helping individuals to recover from the stress and negative ramifications of harassment.

1. Don’t read the comments on articles you’ve written or are mentioned in.

2. Know that your feelings — whether they’re anger or sadness or frustration — are all valid.

3. Know that a lot of other women have experienced similar harassment — talking about it with them can help.

“We’re living in an exciting time of dynamic change when people are actually starting to pay attention to their words and actions and their implications.”
