In 2019, I want to propose a new kind of test. Women, can two or more of us get together without mentioning our bodies and diets? It would be a small act of resistance and a kindness to ourselves.

When men sit down to a business lunch, they don’t waste it pointing out every flaw on their bodies. They discuss ideas, strategies, their plans to take up more space than they already do.

Pizza for boys, cupcakes for girls—and junk food for all
Pesch found that there were twice as many food-based items targeted towards girls than boys. Further, those clothes were predominantly designed with sweet foods like pastries and frozen desserts. For clothes marketed to boys, savory foods like pizza and fast food took center stage.

Across three complementary studies, results indicate that women report experiencing more incivility from other women than from men, with this effect being amplified for women who are more agentic at work.

The New Subtle Sexism Toward Women in the Workplace
“They’re out of line, breaking the rules, violating the ‘shoulds’ of gender stereotypes,” says Heilman. “The issue is not: are they that way or not that way. The issue is: men and women are probably behaving exactly the same but women are taking a hit.”

Work incivility: Women report more rudeness from other women
In fact, women report more rudeness from their female coworkers than male colleagues, a study recently published in the Journal of Applied Psychology found. Women who were assertive and outspoken were particularly vulnerable to incivility from other women, becoming targets of snarky comments, being ignored or excluded, or being treated disrespectfully.

Perceiving and Confronting Sexism: The Causal Role of Gender Identity Salience
Despite egalitarian social norms in the contemporary United States, women are exposed to prejudiced attitudes and sexist treatment across a wide range of settings (Swim, Hyers, Cohen, & Ferguson, 2001). However, many women do not confront such sexist treatment in their environment (Kaiser & Miller, 2004; Swim & Hyers, 1999; Woodzicka & LaFrance, 2001). This reluctance to challenge discrimination has important psychological and social consequences. Confrontation has not only been linked to a sense of empowerment among women (Gervais, Hillard, & Vescio, 2010), but also can serve as an effective means for social change (Mallett & Wagner, 2011). To this end, researchers have worked to understand the various factors that affect how women and other stigmatized individuals weigh the potential costs and benefits of confronting prejudice (for reviews, see Ashburn-Nardo, Morris, & Goodwin, 2008; Kaiser & Major, 2006). In the present research, we focused on the role of one such factor, the salience of personal versus gender (group) identity, and examined its causal impact on women’s confrontation of a sexist comment in the context of a computer-mediated interaction.

SPSSI Journals
This research examines male and female perceivers’ reactions to a female target who (1) confronted sexism nonaggressively, (2) confronted sexism aggressively (by slapping the perpetrator), or (3) did not confront sexism. Results (N = 152) indicated that, overall, both women and men responded most favorably to the female target who confronted nonaggressively. Nonaggressive confrontation was perceived as relatively unthreatening for women and relatively threatening for men, whereas the remaining responses were all perceived as threatening for women. Results were further moderated by participants’ a priori levels of gender identification: women who were weakly identified with their gender and men who were highly identified with their gender were less supportive of aggressive confrontations. Implications regarding the optimal way to confront sexism are discussed.

Promoting concern about gender bias with evidence-based confrontation - ScienceDirect
Confrontation can be a powerful tool for raising people's awareness of their proneness to subtle but consequential biases, thereby highlighting discrepancies between personal values and actual behaviors (Czopp et al., 2006, Rokeach, 1973). Confrontation also communicates that bias is unacceptable, which establishes situational norms opposing bias (Paluck, 2011). Thus, when people are confronted about things they have said or done that are biased, they experience self-reflective negative affect (e.g., disappointed with the self and guilt), become more concerned about their biases, and reduce subsequent biased responding (Czopp et al., 2006, Czopp and Monteith, 2003, Gulker et al., 2013).

Orion Magazine | Renewing Husbandry
THE WORD “HUSBANDRY” IS THE NAME of a connection. In its original sense, it is the name of the work of a domestic man, a man who has accepted a bondage to the household. To husband is to use with care, to keep, to save, to make last, to conserve. Old usage tells us that there is a husbandry also of the land, of the soil, of the domestic plants and animals — obviously because of the importance of these things to the household.

The Gendering of Emotions Could Be Linked to Rates of Anxiety - Tonic
There are some smaller hormonal differences between genders that could act as catalysts for anxious behavior. There is evidence that estrogen and progesterone can modulate neurotransmission in a way that would enable obsessive-compulsive thoughts. Also, in men, the neurons that process stress and comfort-related hormones secrete a protein that nixes the anxiety-inducing effect of the stress-related hormone corticotropin. Mysteriously, women’s brains do not, although these neurological systems are anatomically similar.
