Dumbass Sayings: “Behind Every Great Man Is A Great Woman”

Life ain't so easy when
you're a woman who
looks like Bob Dylan.
They say that “Behind every great man is a great woman” and for some reason this is taken as a positive saying. While it is true, it’s a horrible saying that needs to change. Yes, behind every great man is a great woman, but that great woman is behind the great man because society is keeping her back. Inequality in the workplace and the glass ceiling that women experience is the reason the great woman is behind the great man. The great woman should be able to stand side by side with the great man. This saying is a clear example of how gender inequality is just accepted in society. The weird thing is that this saying is often spoken by women and I don’t even think they know what it really means. This saying is only helping to keep things the way they are and the more it’s used the more likely things will never change. If you support gender equality then there’s no reason to ever say “Behind every great man is a great woman.”
