How Do You Know You’re a Woman? — The Cut

How Do You Know You’re a Woman? — The Cut:

“A few years ago, a colleague of mine asked me, ‘How do you know you’re a woman?’ I had no idea how to answer her. I was enough of a feminist to know I couldn’t just list things like, ‘I’ve been called a girl since birth. I get a period. I like wearing lipstick.’ But it also seemed disingenuous to say that I felt most like a woman when I was making tough decisions at work or lifting something heavy. Ultimately, I decided, I ‘just know’ that I’m a woman.”
