When the Daily Telegraph economics correspondent Anna Isaac shared a story about a mansplainer with her Twitter followers, the anecdote quickly exploded into a full blown thread of women detailing the epidemic of men talking down to them.
"When a man on the train expresses surprise that a ‘young lady’ is reading the business section of the Telegraph and the FT. He starts explaining that Davos happens every year. What CBI and ECB stands for. I try to politely move on... he asks: ‘So what is it you do?’" Isaac wrote.
