This has been the year of "brave" women. And I'm getting sick and tired of women having to be so brave.

The women who accused Bill Cosby of sexual assault are brave. The women at Fox News who came forward with accounts of sexual harassment are brave. So, too, are the growing numbers of women speaking publicly in recent weeks about sexism, harassment and much worse from some startup investors in Silicon Valley.
