Females in chess

A couple of days ago I came across a Tumblr post thanks to a tweet by Susan Polgar. It is a well-written but very sad story that reflects the harassment faced by females in the world of chess; a state of affaris that needs to change.

The writer of the piece is a young French woman called Fanou Lefebvre and the title is: The delicate equation of girls and chess: an open letter to Magnus Carlsen, freshly crowned world champion.

For a start, practising Polgar's motto would help : Win with grace, lose with dignity.
