Sarah Champion: Brexit is a crucial moment in our nation’s history – so let’s use it to be ambitious on equalities | LabourList
Given that equality is so central to EU law, and given the emphasis that has been placed by the prime minister on equality since her speech outside No 10 when she first entered Downing Street, it came as a surprise to me that the word “equality” does not appear once in the government’s white paper.

There is a brief mention of women’s rights in relation to maternity leave, but no mention of race, disability or sexuality and gender identity.

This cannot be credibly perceived as a deal that works for everyone in Britain if women, BAME, disabled people and LGBT communities aren’t even referenced in the white paper.

Energy sector faces struggle to find the female engineers of the future | Business | The Guardian
While the lack of female chief executives in the UK is a problem, the lack of female engineers is an even bigger concern, as Dorothy Thompson, chief executive of Drax group, knows only too well. The head of the UK’s largest power station is grappling with the question of how to attract more women into the energy sector.

Thompson says the six places available on the Drax apprenticeship scheme this year attracted just two female applicants compared with 76 men. The education is partly to blame, she says, but energy companies also need to do much more to change girls’ perceptions.

Pando: Does a VC’s unconscious hesitation to fund women start at home?
It’s widely acknowledged (by most of us anyway) that there is a culture problem within startups that makes women want to go elsewhere and that there’s some serious unconscious bias going on. But untangling that knot of unconscious bias-- even talking about it the wrong way-- is like defusing a gender bomb

Film producer shares shocking intros for women in scripts - BBC Newsbeat
Jennifer Lawrence triggered a big debate on gender inequality and Hollywood sexism last October. She said she got mad at herself for failing to negotiate when she found out she was getting paid less than her male co-stars. The Hunger Games actress said there was "an element of wanting to be liked that influenced my decision to close the deal without a real fight". British actress Rachel Weisz told Newsbeat she thinks there's a difference between stories for male and female characters in cinema. "Women are actually not allowed to be difficult, interesting, complex, three-dimensional," she said. "Female characters have to be sweeter and more likeable than a male character would have to be." //&! bit.ly/1QfkFNB

Ellen Pao: ‘I Have Decided to End My Lawsuit Against Kleiner Perkins’ | Re/code
Still, Pao underscored that the deck was stacked against her in terms of resources. “I think it is wrong that employees have to pay in this situation, but I simply cannot afford the risks of more costs to fight a firm with massive PR and legal resources,” she said. “The court system is not set up to create an even playing field.” [...] To be clear, Kleiner and I have not reached any agreement to settle this matter. Settlement might have provided me with financial benefits, but only at the great cost of silence." [...] She said she would continue to speak out on issues of gender disparity, but she was spending time with her family and also returning to investing and working with entrepreneurs. &! on.recode.net/1OfLRII

I've been viciously attacked for daring to start a women's tech site | Media Network | The Guardian
So yes, my site has ‘feminine’ branding. Yes, we cover fashion and beauty as well as phones and drones. And that is entirely deliberate. It’s okay to be a woman who likes tech. It’s also OK to not like clothes and makeup. But many people seem to believe that to achieve equality, we all have to pretend we’re genderless, faceless ‘users’, and that doesn’t help anyone. Acceptance isn’t about ditching who you are to fit in with the crowd. It’s about the crowd recognising that you have differences and welcoming them.

New Statesman cover on childless female politicians provokes heated online debate | Politics | The National
The article won praise too though for highlighting the discrepancy between the proportions of male and female MPs who are parents, [...] 45 per cent of female MPs were childless, compared with 28 per cent of men. Helen Lewis, deputy editor of the New Statesman, who wrote the piece, urged people to read it before criticising, while pointing out that it analysed why both motherhood and childlessness caused problems for women in politics. [...] The analysis was published the week after a row erupted when the Labour MP Helen Goodman wrote in a blog that she was backing Yvette Cooper for leader because she was a mother. // [ Cheap shots.

Former Reddit CEO alleges co-founder Alexis Ohanian fired Victoria Taylor, not Pao
via redd.it/3d6asv // nyti.ms/1gz0Iks // yishan - former CEO :: Alexis wasn’t some employee reporting to Pao, he was the Executive Chairman of the Board, i.e. Pao’s boss. He had different ideas for AMAs, he didn’t like Victoria’s role, and decided to fire her. Pao wasn’t able to do anything about it. In this case it shouldn’t have traveled upstream to her, it came from above her. Then when the hate-train started up against Pao, Alexis should have been out front and center saying very clearly “Ellen Pao did not make this decision, I did.” Instead, he just sat back and let her take the heat. That’s a stunning lack of leadership and an incredibly shitty thing to do. I actually asked that he be on the board when I joined; I used to respect Alexis Ohanian.

What a picture of society and what it means in a persons life to have "power." And also include the Church! Sure, back then paedophiles, rapists and abusers of any kind often got away with it more or less because of the stigma as victim (you brought this on you) and the lack (non existent) of prosecution and support. Dark ages. Dark ages. That is recent history. Just one generation. Thinking about it is abhorring - that these people still shape our life's to some extent.

Bonding over rowing college crew, getting certified in scuba, sipping single-malt Scotches in the Highlands or dining at Michelin-starred restaurants was evidence of fit; sharing a love of teamwork or a passion for pleasing clients was not. Some (former) athletes fit exclusively with other athletes; others fit only with those who played the same sport.

Ellen Pao Says Gender Issues Won’t ‘Go Away’ After Kleiner Trial - WSJ
“You have this needle that you have to thread, and sometimes it feels like there’s no hole in the needle. From what I’ve heard from women, they do feel like there’s no way to win. They can’t be aggressive and get this opportunity without being treated like they’ve done something wrong.” [...] Ms. Pao, who was accused in her trial of being both too timid and too aggressive, said “women get criticized on both ends” of the spectrum when it comes to office demeanor. [...] she has removed salary negotiations from the hiring process because studies show women don’t fare as well as men. [ >>> Buffer and their transparency about salary/compensation <<< ]. [...] And she has passed on hiring candidates who don’t embrace her priority of building a gender-balanced and multiracial team.

For Stanford Class of ’94, a Gender Gap More Powerful Than the Internet - NYTimes.com
“If a woman says no, she means yes!” “You’re all [expletive] slaves.” [Sacks] made it clear that he found the graffiti itself deplorable, calling it “sexist and violent,” in his first essay for The Stanford Review, a conservative-libertarian campus newspaper. But he also argued that an earlier round of graffiti — including a crude statement about President George Bush — had been just as offensive. [...] Keith Rabois, another former editor, said in an interview. But there was an ugly side as well; Mr. Rabois left campus in 1992 after yelling “Can’t wait until you die,” punctuating it with a homophobic slur. He said afterward that he had been protesting campus speech codes. Mr. Sacks was almost as abrasive, joking in print about an imaginary course called “Bathroom Self Defense for Heterosexuals.” [...] it was not clear that they recognized the basic concerns of many female and minority students — that they would not have the same opportunities as their white male peers. bit.ly/1Ev1UgU

No skin thick enough: The daily harassment of women in the game industry | Polygon
the internet brings out the worst in people and society - because it is frictionless. wait 10 year and we hope we died 10 years ago. // ""You don’t really recover from this kind of abuse. You just change." She’s right. Often, I’ll see people lashing out at women they perceive as too bitchy or too confrontational. They don’t understand that we are the sum of our experiences. The toxic environment causes us to change. If people attack you online, you’re going to get defensive quickly. If people sexually harass you, you’re going to grow more inward, and more protective. It’s a very human reaction, and there is no way to face this daily reality without it changing who you are."

Venture capital and the great big Silicon Valley asshole game | PandoDaily
(( via pando.com/2015/02/12/how-silicon-valleys-counterculture-went-corporate-and-ruined-everything/ )) --- This is a complex topic with no real “right” or “wrong.” You have to consider what the job of a VC is. It’s not to give inner city kids a helping hand; it’s not to make mom-and-pop dreams a reality; it’s not to help nice guys. It’s to maximize returns and fund companies that have an outsized chance of creating billion-dollar plus outcomes in a decade or less. There is a certain personality type that frequently builds these companies—a mix of outsized arrogance, steel-eyed determination, and even some element of delusion. Rational thinkers don’t usually think they can upend whole industries. People who get impacted by social pressure will be talked out of an idea long before it comes to fruition.

How Silicon Valley’s counterculture went corporate and ruined everything | PandoDaily
Politicians, entrepreneurs, artists, activists, hippies, and corporations all working together to make the world a better place? In 2015, that arrangement seems unthinkable. So where did the dream of tech-powered togetherness go wrong? [...] [...] // As of last November, the median rent for a one-bedroom apartment in San Francisco was $3,350 [£2200]. [...] So contrary to Gosney’s and Archer’s dream of a techno-utopia that benefits every slice of San Francisco’s population, the tech boom — along with various city statutes that limit residential housing — have made it harder than ever for artists and other members of the counterculture to live in the city. These are the very people, mind you, who helped spark the region’s technological revolution. And that’s saying nothing of the struggles felt by teachers, social workers and other non-tech workers struggling to stay afloat as housing prices skyrocket. [...] [C]ity officials and outdated statutes are as much to blame as tech companies

What is the Right Percentage of Women in Technical... | Scott Adams Blog
via Pando:: Dilbert creator on tech’s gender imbalance: The smartest men are unpleasant and women are rational - “I want to be perfectly clear that I am speaking about my personal, flawed, biased, observation, which I hope is not representative. But seriously, how could I spend a year in an industry without meeting one female technical genius/entrepreneur while meeting about a hundred men I would label that way? I know plenty of brilliant women, but they don’t work in that field.” ~Dilbert creator Scott Adams /// "3. Sexism, discrimination, and old-boy networks make technology an unfriendly place for women.

Sexism is making women sick | Jessica Valenti | Comment is free | The Guardian
A study published this month in the journal Sex Roles reveals that some of the sexism women face – from catcalling and sexual harassment to sexual objectification and violence – makes women generally more fearful and anxious. The researchers from the University of Missouri-Kansas and Georgia State University found a substantive “link between physical safety concerns and psychological distress”. We already know that violence causes trauma, and that people who are bullied and harassed are more likely to be depressed throughout their lives. Research shows that children who live in violent neighborhoods are more prone to developing PTSD, and that the daily fear they experience changes their psychological make-up so drastically that nightmares, flashbacks and disassociation are common. [...] “It’s normalized, but it has such an effect on your life – women constrain their behaviors every day.”

There's a New Prudery in Feminism and I Hate It | VICE | United Kingdom
I want no part in any feminism that takes, 'We know what's best for you,' as its starting point. [...] Sexism and misogyny are always finding new modes of expression, and I don't wish to ignore the very real pressures women face to look a certain way – pressures I feel, too. I shave my legs. But while patriarchy might mean you'd get shamed if you rocked up at the club with hairy armpits, I doubt anyone's going to laugh at you just because you don't have a slutty social media presence. Sometimes people post sexy pictures just because they like it.

The Supreme Court is about to tackle online threats for the first time | The Verge
The issue before the Supreme Court is whether "a true threat" requires finding that the threatener subjectively intended to be threatening. Elonis is arguing for a subjective intent requirement, claiming that his posts were meant as rap lyrics and not as threats, while the prosecutors are arguing for an "objective" standard—a threat counts as a threat if a "reasonable person" would think the statement is a threat. The government is arguing that it’s enough to use an objective standard, with an exception for "idle or careless talk, exaggeration, something said in a joking manner or an outburst of transitory anger." However, when it comes to the Internet, where context or tone may be more difficult to perceive, this objective standard has obvious drawbacks [...] [UK has] law that forbids electronic messages that are "grossly offensive or of an indecent, obscene, or menacing character," [...] "with the intent to intimidate." [...] "[...] most likely to inspire fear of bodily harm."

BBC News - Millennials, not Mumsnet: Younger women and the 2015 election
Radio One DJ Gemma Cairney, 29, said that for many of her generation, politics was a "complete other world", which many could not even get up the energy to feel let down by. Many were in debt - which created a whole new reason not to register to vote. "They are afraid to register because that means the bailiffs know where they live," she said. But what can politicians do to appeal to "millennial" voters? [...] Sexism in the male-dominated corridors of power was highlighted by columnist Ms Gordon. She said she had once been called a "slut" to her face by an MP who went on to become a minister. "You have to sweep that culture out," she said - and using quotas to get more women into Parliament was one way to do it. [...] About 22% of MPs are women - "20% of us is not enough", she said. "I think it's quite damaging for democracy."

21 Women on the Dumbest Things They’ve Bought -- The Cut
“I have this really bad habit of thinking that because I am a ‘professional woman,’ I need all of this stuff to make me really BE that woman. Like, I will justify the constant purchase of expensive haircuts, manicures, leather laptop cases, blazers, and conservative heels with ‘this is basically a business expense.’ Except that I cannot write those expenses off, and now I have like ten more ‘work purses’ than I would ever need.” —Sarah, 28 [...] “First, I got into waxing for a while and maintaining that shit really adds up. [...] “Trendy clothes. [...] When I moved to New York, I had this really fucking dumb Carrie Bradshaw ideal of how I should dress and act. I thought that it was normal to spend a bunch of money on trendy shoes, [...] My brain can’t accept that it will never own Manolos if I also want to own a home someday.” [...] I spend money on makeup, blowouts, and nail art, in huge part for the Instagram likes. It is probably the saddest thing about myself.

>> for video clip << Gronkh, Sarazar, David Hain und Co >> “The thing about patriarchy is that individual men, gay and straight, are often really wonderful people who you love deeply, but they have internalized some really poisonous shit. So every once in a while they say or do something that really shakes you because you’re no longer totally certain they see you as a human being, and you feel totally disempowered to explain that to them.”

Iggy Azalea criticises Eminem rape lyrics (aimed at her) - BBC Newsbeat
"The new Eminem rap song is yet another example of a stream of music videos that glamorises and normalises rape, rape culture and violence against women," Betiel Barakia, a spokesperson for Object, which tackles issues around women and girls in the media, told Newsbeat. "It normalises and legitimises forms of behaviour that should be condemned, not celebrated or tolerated. "Eminem is a global, successful rapper; his target audience are young boys and he, alongside the music industry as a whole, have a responsibility towards their audience."

Women 'belittled, underappreciated and underpaid in tech industry', Guardian readers say | Technology | The Guardian
“Beyond structural gender disparities, many respondents complained of a ‘macho, misogynist culture’, with bosses organizing events at strip clubs, and frequent commentary on women’s bodies the norm. That culture was reinforced elsewhere, with female staff told to smarten up, wear lipstick, and some required to attend trade shows where ‘booth babes’ – scantily-clad models promoting products – were commonplace.”

Alexis Ohanian, Reddit Co-Founder, To His 'Fellow Geeks': Stop Being Sexist
The comments (and support for them) I’ve seen over the past few days have really disappointed me and I really hope this is a chance for us to reflect on how we use these tools to foster the tech community. This isn't "political correctness," this is you having the courage to use your words to create an environment that promotes an open exchange of ideas -- not alienate people and certainly not terrorize them. [...] Ohanian points out that the majority of the Reddit community is made up not only of "not-poor straight white men," who should open up and be kind to those who are different from them. He ends the post by writing that "the Internet won't live up to its full potential without getting the best out of everyone." - http://alexisohanian.com/dear-fellow-geeks-what-the-fuck - via http://www.reddit.com/r/todayilearned/comments/2mgpx9/til_reddit_founder_alex_ohanian_wrote_an_open/

BBC Radio 4 - A History of Ideas, Historian Simon Schaffer on Beauty and Evolution, Feminine Beauty: A social construct?
Feminine Beauty: A social construct? // The French existentialist writer Simone de Beauvoir famously declares in her book The Second Sex that a woman isn’t born a woman, rather she becomes one. She means by this that there is no way women have to be, no given femininity, no ideal to which all women should conform. Simone de Beauvoir suggests that resistance to male stereotypes of beauty can mean greater equality. Voiced by Harry Shearer. Scripted by Nigel Warburton. &!&!&!& via http://www.reddit.com/r/FemmeThoughts/comments/2lqcw6/feminine_beauty_as_a_social_construct/ "it is feminism's goal to break away from that oppression and its labels.

Liebe Mädchen, heute möchte ich euch einen Brief schreiben, bei dem ihr mit den Augen rollen werdet. Ich möchte euch sehr ersuchen, alles zu werden, was ihr wollt (solange es nicht das Tanzen an einer Stange beinhaltet). Also alles könnt ihr werden, nur nicht süß. Süß sind Häschen, Hamster, Welpen. Ein Mensch ist nicht süß. Nicht einmal in einem Fellkostüm. Er kann nett sein, hübsch, hässlich, dämlich. Macht alles, aber werdet nicht süß, denn dann könnt ihr auch auf eure Stirn tätowieren: Nehmt mich bloß nicht ernst.
