And today we fight

Yesterday, I was consumed with sadness and weakness after finding out that I can't afford to fight for justice. Today I woke up with more fight left in me.

You can read my story on Twitter:

Today, I have started a GoFundMe with much hesitation. I hate begging for money, but unfortunately money is the root of all evil and also the thing that I need most to keep fighting the injustice.

You can donate or share the GoFundMe over here: https://www.gofundme.com/f/fight-gender-discrimination-in-tech

I am begging, even though begging doesn't look the greatest on me, to help me fight against this injustice. Let's show other women that our voices can be heard and that changes can be made. Let's show our daughters that this behavior will not be tolerated.

Signed, someone who is fighting and will never give up to ensure that women are treated equal. That EVERYONE is treated equal.

PS: I am completely unsure of my total legal fees, so this is just a start. IF additional funds are raised, beyond what is needed, I will use those funds to support other women or organizations that fight for gender discrimination.
