1 / 1 The Forum Philadelphia has a vibrant women’s site, where women talk about topics ranging from body image, sex work, feminism, and relationships.
It is run by a dedicated group of women, including one who has been at the site for over 10 years, and they are not shy about discussing topics like sexual harassment.
But the group has also come under fire for its gender-focused focus.
On this site, which is run entirely by women, a male moderator has created a “gender-neutral” section, allowing men to discuss the issues they care about.
This section has also been criticised for its “anti-feminist” stance, which includes discussions about sexual harassment and other types of discrimination.
A number of the members of the Forum Philadephia have left the group, saying that their experience with it was sexist.
Here’s how some women say the forum’s approach to gender has left them feeling disrespected.
Sarah Browning has been a member of the forum for seven years, but says the gender-neutral section on the forum has made her feel “like a target for male bullies”.
“It has made me feel like I’m not good enough,” she says.
“It’s made me think of myself as a target, and as a woman.”
Sarah Browned says she felt she had been discriminated against because she was a woman.
“I was bullied and made to feel less than, I was asked to do things by men that weren’t my idea of ‘feminine’ behaviour,” she explains.
Sarah has written about her experiences in her blog, Gender-Based Violence: How the Misogyny Behind Men’s Rights Activism is Destroying Women’s Lives, and has spoken out about the forum in interviews with the ABC, Vice News, and HuffPost. “
And it’s been hurtful and degrading, because it feels like I don’t belong here.”
Sarah has written about her experiences in her blog, Gender-Based Violence: How the Misogyny Behind Men’s Rights Activism is Destroying Women’s Lives, and has spoken out about the forum in interviews with the ABC, Vice News, and HuffPost.
But she says she does not agree with the “sexism” of the site.
“As a woman, I have a right to be able to speak about things that I care about,” she said.
Sarah’s concerns have been supported by a number of other women who have joined the forum, including former staff members, as well as members of other groups who have left because of its gender focused approach. “
So, it’s about men not being allowed to have that conversation.”

Sarah believes the sexism is harmful to women, and that it has negatively impacted the site’s business.
“In order for this forum to survive, it needs to be gender-balanced, and there’s no reason that a woman-only section is a good way to do that,” she told RTE.
“We don’t need a place where men are called out, but we need to be allowed to say what we want about men, and what we don’t want about women.”
Sarah is also concerned about what other women say about the site, including some who have experienced the forum with hostility.
“There’s a lot of things that go on here that aren’t in line with the values that we hold as women, as women of colour,” she tells the ABC.
“This is about creating a safe space for women to talk about their experiences, and about being treated with respect.”
But Sarah also believes that the site has a role to play in the wider discussion around women’s issues.
“One of the things that’s been really frustrating for me, and the reason I’ve decided to leave is that it’s not about women’s rights,” she explained.
“The men who run the forum aren’t doing it for women’s needs, it is doing it because it’s a male-owned business.
It’s not that they’re trying to make money.
It was a business decision, not about gender-based issues.”
Women’s Forum Philadelphia has faced criticism for its approach to the forum.
The women’s section of the website was created by a group of dedicated women.
But it has also received criticism for what some members say are gender-specific issues, including discussions about sex work and other issues surrounding gender equality.
Sarah says the forum is still a valuable resource for women and has benefited from its focus on the issues that affect women, not on issues like sex work.
“If we want to be taken seriously, if we want a voice to be heard, we have to talk to the men in the group who are doing this,” she argued.
Sarah and her fellow women say they are trying to be more vocal about their issues, and have been receiving support from other women.
“You can’t ignore the fact that this forum is made up of women,” Sarah told RTV New York.
“These are the same women who’ve written about how they’re going to be targeted, they’re still doing that.”
