Gendered products: think before you label - Business Voice - CBI
After 60 years, Kleenex Mansize tissues have been taken off our shelves and replaced by Kleenex Extra Large. The reason? Mounting customer complaints arguing the brand was outdated, sexist and irrelevant to the modern world. Kleenex is not the first, and I’m sure won’t be the last.

Engaging men on gender equality | Diversity Council Australia
The most effective ways to engage men on gender equality at work:

Get the foundation right – ensure gender equality initiatives involve women and men as active and equal partners.
Get the framing right – treat gender equality as a business issue, not a women’s issue.
Go wide – make visible and target all key gender equality areas (i.e. paid work, power and decision making, financial security, personal safety, interpersonal work relationships, caring, and community involvement).
Get the messaging right – to appeal to men as well as women.
Engage a diversity of men – including men in different organisational roles and levels, and with a variety of demographic backgrounds (e.g. ages, cultural backgrounds, sexual orientations).
Educate about how to lead change effectively – by resourcing initiatives, being visible and persistent, and ‘walking the talk’.
Make the connection between work and home – by implementing initiatives that encourage gender equality in caregiving.
Make the connection between work and communities – by framing gender inequality as a societal/community problem.
Build individuals’ gender confidence and capability – by providing opportunities for both men and women to change their mindsets, assumptions, and behaviours.
Encourage men and women to challenge and change gender-biased organisational policies and practices.

Kitchen Table Cult
"Kitchen Table Cult unpacks all the things Kieryn and Hännah learned at the kitchen tables of their childhoods in conservative Christian homeschooling families. Every week we take your questions and drill down on various topics about Quiverfull, the Religious Right, and our childhoods in high-demand groups (otherwise known as cults).

We’re not surprised about the rise of Trump, Christian fascism, or evangelical white women voting for someone like Mike Pence, and we want to take you back through the beginning of it all to explain why."

[Kieryn and Hännah on Twitter and elsewhere online:

Kieryn Darkwater

Hännah Hettinger ]

[Fascinating conversation with harrowing experiences. One apprehension (from Episode 1): seems to oversell public (and private) school education and doesn't mention the many, many terrible outcomes that come from it. ]

[Some other episodes of note:

Episode Three: Diligently Taught
"Hännah and Kieryn discuss the intersections of homeschooling, race, privilege, and children's rights."

Episode Five: What is HSLDA? (lots of refs in post)
"Hännah and Kieryn talk with Kathryn Brightbill, Legislative Policy Analyst at CRHE about the Homeschool Legal Defense Association – what their role is in the current state of things, where they came from, and why they’ve managed to win so far."

Episode 10: Educational Neglect
"Kieryn and Hännah delve into the negative aspects of their homeschool educations, and why they are so passionate about advocating for homeschool reform. When homeschooling goes wrong, it can go very very wrong..." ] ]

Sonic/Antoine Forever – ZEAL – Medium
From On Camp, Susan Sontag writes “the Camp sensibility is one that is alive to a double sense in which some things can be taken.” Grade-school me saw this deep admiration Tails had for Sonic as romantic in the same way I crushed on my straight friends.

Does the decline of gender within literary studies matter? – .txtLAB @ McGill
Since then I’ve been working with more models to understand how gender has played out as a category of research in the past half-century. The figure below shows the rise and fall of the “gender studies topic”, which was derived using LDA with 60 topics. As I mention elsewhere, it is one of the most stable topics across multiple runs and multiple topic-size parameters.
