The age of women empowerment is here. You have many women who are feminists, who are fighting for equality. Women want to be paid equality, and be treated equally.There is one woman who is a true victim, and her name is Whitney Wolfe.Whitney Wolfe is a former executive to Tinder and someone who helped start up the company. She was born in Salt Lake City and attended Sothern Methodist University where she studied in International Studies. When she was only 19, she started her own business. She sold bamboo tote bags, that benefited areas that were affected by the BP oil spill.But now, she filed a lawsuit against Tinder’s chief executive and chief marketing officer.
According to The New York Times, “Tinder’s chief executive and chief marketing officer subjected Ms. Wolfe to “a barrage of horrendously sexist, racist and otherwise inappropriate comments, emails and text messages.””She was one of the founders of the app, but she wasn’t called that by her colleges, because of her age and gender.Even though she “…was instrumental in the establishment of the dating app” according to the New York Times.And this is not the first time. The technology industry is filled with sexual harassment and discrimination charges.The New York Times says, “Facebook, for example, recently disclosed that just 31 percent of its 6,500 workers worldwide were women, and in its United States offices, more than half of all employees are white.

They also released Bumble BFF, a feature to find new friends, and Bumble Bizz, a new mode of professional networking.Whitney Wolfe recently got married in September 2017, and according to vogue.com, “the ceremony was supposed to take place on a grassy cliff, which was now soaking wet. Whitney and Michael, along with all of the bridesmaids and groomsmen, went down with dozens of towels and dried the land and the benches so that the space was ready to go.”Whitney had also said to Vogue, “We had the most majestic, special ceremony ever, and there was not a dry eye on that cliff!”
