Le sigh. I try not to be abrasively vocal with my opinions regarding the promotion of women in craft beer, but sometimes it really gets under my skin. I am all about promoting the industry as a whole and the beautiful people in it, but why do so many people feel the need to divide us into gender categories?
Promoting women pioneers and leaders in craft beer is fine, but why is it necessary to have a WOMEN ONLY tasting event? Men should be allowed to celebrate the women. We are equals after all…
In my opinion, which is definitely not the popular opinion and probably not the right opinion, separating the women from the men and having exclusive events and demanding to be treated differently is a form of reverse discrimination.
Might sound harsh, but I feel like events like that are upholding gender stereotypes, instead of tearing them down.
Sorry to rant…. but I just had to throw in two cents.
