12 People Who Weren’t Afraid to Call Out Everyday Chauvinism

The world is a different place than it was a decade ago, and of course, even more different than it was in the decades before that – and one thing that’s changed it how people are more and more willing to stand up for their beliefs in every day life.

When we see racism or xenophobia or sexism skipping about unchecked, we’re more and more likely to call it out – which is exactly what these 12 people did.
