Woman, Interrupted


Mansplaining—when a man explains something to a woman in a condescending or patronizing (and often inaccurate) way—isn't a new concept. It happens in all walks of life and in every situation you can imagine, and every now and then, a particularly bad case of mansplaining goes viral. 

For Claire McDonnell, 22 year-old grad student, things had gotten so bad that she decided to record her male colleagues interrupting her. A lot.

The results won't surprise any woman who sees them. And as Suzanne often tries to say (before Zito interrupts her) listening is an important skill.
