Remember back in 2009 when Kanye pulled a completely douche move and interrupted Taylor Swift at the VMAs? The whole world cringed, and we never really forgot about it.

Unfortunately, that kind of stuff, aptly called ~*manterruption*~, happens to women every single day. Women everywhere are constantly cut off or silenced by men who think their opinions matter more, who believe their voices are more important.

In fact, Sheryl Sandberg, who is the Chief Operating Officer of Facebook, once said, "Women who worry that 'talking too much' will cause them to be disliked at work are not paranoid; they are often right." Watch the video below for proof.

As a response, Woman Interrupted was created; it is an app that tracks how many times you're interrupted by a dude on a daily basis. It's available for download for both iOS and Android devices so give it a try!
