A lot has happened in these past three years. “MeToo” and “Timesup” have taken on new meanings while terms like Mansplaining and The Mental Load have helped to articulate things some of us have been feeling for years. We have a record number of women serving in Congress. And let’s not forget “The Year of the Woman!”
