Women’s Voices in Type, On and Offstage Pt.2

Bias and sexism: causes and solutions.

Dyana Weissman discusses bias and sexism in the type industry and at TypeCon, which is actively working to increase diversity. She surveyed women who were asked if they have experienced sexism and explored whether or not women enjoyed public speaking. Shame, prejudice, unconscious favoritism and internalized oppression are also explored. Her article entreats us to support and have pride in our community.
