There is some kind of underhanded belief that smart women are also the type of women who prefer hanging out with men than other women and distance themselves from all that is feminine. This is a form of hidden sexism. The belief that smart women know that being women is wrong. That smart women recognise men as the superior being.
Being a smart and a woman doesn’t have to be two separate items. You can be feminine and smart. Women do not need to apologise for being feminine.
“It’s not about women acting like men. It’s about women acting like women and being successful.” – Zooey Deschanel
It’s completely illogical to tell a woman that in order to succeed in our society, she needs to become more like a man.
