How do you support women? Mainly, by responding. This takes place in a number of forms. You answer emails. You look them in the eye. You donate to their Kickstarters, you purchase their books, you follow their socials. You comment with positivity. You build teams that reflect a diverse group. You lead with empathy. You mentor. You pay attention. Supporting the women in your life, the women you know from afar, the women you work with, the women who stand behind counters, the women who are on the treadmill beside you. All the women who walk in and around you in the course of a day need your support, no matter your gender. It’s not political; it’s basic human nature. So respond in kind. Your support goes a long, long, long way.
