Women are changing their Twitter handles to ‘Dr’ if they have a PhD to make a point that if they’ve achieved something, they should be able to be proud of it.
Too often women are socially conditioned to be nice, acceptable, and not to ruffle any feathers in order to please men.
However, now the female Twitterati are fighting back, with the simple tool of adding ‘Dr’ to their Twitter names if they have gained a Phd.
My title is Dr Fern Riddell, not Ms or Miss Riddell.
I have it because I am an expert, and my life and career consist of being that expert in as many different ways as possible.
