Oscars und der Boykott schwarzer Künstler: Hollywoods wahres Problem - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Die Oscar-Academy ändert ihr Reglement: Künftig sollen nicht nur weiße Männer über 60 entscheiden, wer die Auszeichnung bekommt. Ein wichtiger Schritt. Doch Hollywoods Problem sitzt tiefer. [...] Eine echte Debatte über mangelnde Diversität in Hollywood muss sich also um die Frage drehen, wie viel Zugang ethnische Minderheiten zu Macht- und Prestige-Positionen innerhalb der amerikanischen Filmindustrie bekommen und wie sich auch dort, wo die Filme erdacht, in Auftrag gegeben und produziert werden, die Demographie der USA angemessen widerspiegelt. Die Oscars, die sich nun auf berechtigten Druck verändern wollen, sind tatsächlich nur Seismograph einer an ethnischer Hermetik und Verkrustung leidenden Branche.

Gucci Casts First Transgender Model, Transparent Star Hari Nef
I think the most important part here is ... being stealth vs being out: IMG had met with transgender models in the past but passed on signing them when it became apparent that they were not interested in doing jobs that brought attention to their gender identities. They wanted to be seen as models, not transgender models. Nef did not share their feelings. "Give me all those jobs," she told Bart. "I want to work." And thus, the realisation that being trans still matters to the media and the public at large. Meaning it is still a big deal. A deal big enough that IMG doesn't sign trans models that want to stay stealth, because then they would compete with all the other women in the women's pool ... nothing special about that. // via https://redd.it/41vfr5

Naomi Wolf - The groundbreaking gender theorist Dr Michael Kimmel...
The groundbreaking gender theorist Dr Michael Kimmel of Stony Brook University -- who has written the most important books about masculinity in our current national and global discussion, including his recent bestseller Guyland -- shares his not-to-be-missed TED talk about why gender equality helps us all, male and female. If everyone framed feminism in this kind of common-sense, inclusive language, it would have far fewer obstacles in front of it, and far greater clarity as a concept in the mind of the culture. --- http://www.ted.com/talks/michael_kimmel_why_gender_equality_is_good_for_everyone_men_included

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

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.

Homosexualität im Management: Kommentar - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Der Ex-Telekom-Vorstand Thomas Sattelberger hat sich als schwul geoutet - nach seiner Konzernkarriere. Er rührt an ein Tabu: Unternehmen halten zwar große Stücke auf Vielfalt. Aber im Top-Management verstecken Homosexuelle sich noch immer. [...] In einem SPIEGEL-Interview sagte er jetzt: "Sie müssen immer damit rechnen, dass diese Information irgendwann gegen Sie verwendet wird." (Lesen Sie hier die ganze Geschichte im neuen SPIEGEL.) [...] Der Unternehmenslenker hat männlich, weiß, von mittlerem Alter zu sein, mit hohem Testosteronspiegel und entzückender Familie. Denn je weiter oben, desto wichtiger ist die Zugehörigkeit zum Rudel. Leistung wird vorausgesetzt, die letzten Meter macht das Netzwerk. [...] Führungskräfte rekrutieren nach dem Ähnlichkeitsprinzip, ob bewusst oder unbewusst. So fördert der große Hartmut den kleinen Hartmut - und nicht die Birgit oder den schwulen René. &! &! bit.ly/1Ca85Vc

What Silicon Valley Thinks of Women
Despite that discouraging fact, the two women spent their 20s deep inside the valley’s bro community—a culture that has been described as savagely misogynistic. In inverse ratio to the forward-looking technology the community produces, it is stunningly backward when it comes to gender relations. Google “Silicon Valley” and “frat boy culture” and you’ll find dozens of pages of articles and links to mainstream news articles, blogs, screeds, letters, videos and tweets about threats of violence, sexist jokes and casual misogyny, plus reports of gender-based hiring and firing, major-league sexual harassment lawsuits and a financing system that rewards young men and shortchanges women. &! &! http://www.ravishly.com/2015/01/29/glassbreakers-silicon-valley-women-newsweek &! http://techcrunch.com/video/apple-earnings-snapchat-discover-woman-in-tech/518628679/

Dicke Männer bekommen mehr Gehalt, dicke Frauen weniger - SPIEGEL ONLINE
KarriereSPIEGEL: Und für Frauen? Caliendo: Sie verdienen am meisten bei einem Body-Mass-Index (BMI) von 21,5 - einem Wert, der nach gesellschaftlichen Standards als attraktiv definiert wird. Mit diesem BMI verdienen Frauen bis zu zwölf Prozent mehr als übergewichtige Kolleginnen. Das gilt besonders für Berufe, in denen sie Kundenkontakt haben, zum Beispiel in der Gastronomie oder im Vertrieb. [...] Ja, für Männer gibt es offenbar einen Schlankheitsmalus, der auf Körperkraft beruht. Frauen bekommen dagegen einen Schlankheitsbonus, der auf physischer Attraktivität basiert. Bei ihnen geht der Effekt sogar noch weiter. [...] Das Körpergewicht wirkt sich bei Frauen nicht nur auf ihr Einkommen aus, sondern auch auf die Wahrscheinlichkeit, überhaupt einen Job zu bekommen. Das Risiko, arbeitslos zu sein, ist für übergewichtige Frauen größer als für schlanke.

Ms Sturgeon will add: "As first minister, tackling inequality is at the heart of all I do. Smashing the gender glass ceiling to smithereens is an important part of making progress."

In case you needed another reason to promote diversity in tech… | PandoDaily
The survey found that 67 percent of respondents say diversity is “an important factor when evaluating companies and job offers.” So by valuing diversity, companies will not only find talent across all demographics — they will also increase their chances of attracting more talent simply by virtue of being diverse. It’s a gift that keeps on giving. Unsurprisingly, women and minority groups value diversity most, with 72 percent of women, 89 percent of African Americans, 80 percent of Asians, and 70 percent of Latinos calling it an important factor. Interestingly, military veterans were also among those most likely to value diversity at 65 percent. [ Diversity = more points of view & experience range that can be drawn upon when making decisions [and debating the way forwad] however big and small. ]

Studie zur Generation Y: Leistungsbereiter als bisher angenommen - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Offenbar ist die Generation der 20- bis 30-Jährigen aber deutlich leistungsbereiter als bisher angenommen. Zu diesem Ergebnis kommt eine Umfrage, die dem KarriereSPIEGEL exklusiv vorliegt. Demnach achten nur etwa 21 Prozent der Berufseinsteiger in Deutschland in Karrierefragen primär auf die innere Zufriedenheit. "Die Generation Y ist in ihrer Mehrzahl leistungswillig und sehr zielstrebig", sagt Roman Diehl, Auftraggeber der Analyse. [...] Die Generation der 20- bis 30-Jährigen sei durchaus an einer langfristigen Bindung an Unternehmen interessiert, glauben die Studienautoren. Unter den wichtigsten Faktoren, die ein attraktives Unternehmen ausmacht, steht ein gutes Arbeitsklima an erster Stelle - die wichtigsten Kriterien dabei sind Fairness (70 Prozent), Wertschätzung (52 Prozent), Vertrauen (34 Prozent).

Lena Dunham and Aziz Ansari’s Big Book Deals – Flavorwire
But out of the two, which deal was the source of 1,000 thinkpieces and vague concern trolling about whether-or-not a big deal like this was “right?” You guessed it, Dunham’s. Was there a similar level of outrage for Ansari’s book deal? No — and perhaps speaking to his smaller footprint, culturally, it basically was reduced to a side note. The difference here speaks to a couple of things. Is gender playing a big role? Certainly! Also the difference in Dunham selling a book of essays “about her life” versus Ansari’s take on “modern love” where he was inspired “after reading Malcolm Gladwell.” Ansari’s book will be about his life, to be sure, but it’s not sold to the public as memoir in the same way. It is also probably the result of “Lena Dunham” being a loaded gun in the media representing a lot of ideas regarding young women and power, whereas Ansari, on the other hand, doesn’t represent every young man ever — or every young man of Indian-American heritage, either.

Wie oft, wenn in der Welt eine Entwicklung stattfindet, mit dem Ziel, eben diese Welt zu einem etwas gerechteren Ort werden zu lassen, kurz: wann immer eine Utopie zu etwas Realem zu werden droht, entsteht Widerstand. Empörung, die meist auf einem imaginären Machtverlust Nicht-Mächtiger basiert. Jenen, denen es nicht vergönnt ist, ihre Existenz bis zum letzten Atemzug zu durchdenken. [...] Seid ruhig, bleibt ruhig, es ist nur die Sprache, sie drückt aus, was wir langsam lernen: dass alle Menschen gleich sind. Und wenn uns aufgrund dieser verwegenen Idee ein Wort seltsam vorkommt, einfach ein wenig boxen gehen und tief durchatmen. Die Welt verändert sich.

Women In Tech: It’s Not Just A Pipeline Problem | TechCrunch
Between ages 25 and 30, 41% of the young talent with credentials in those subject matters are female … [but] 52% of this talent drops out … The most important antigen is the machismo that continues to permeate these work environments … 63% of women in science, engineering and technology have experienced sexual harassment. [...] If you create an environment wherein a whole class of entrepreneurs and employees goes unnoticed by deeply flawed industry-wide “pattern recognition” heuristics, and/or one where they have to be perpetually on their guard, and must pretend not to notice all the myriad microaggressions that make them feel vulnerable and uncomfortable and out-of-place then many of those entrepreneurs and employees will decide, rightly, that the tech industry is not worth the hassle and grief. + http://craigconnects.org/2014/08/why-men-must-lean-in-to-support-womens-leadership-2.html

Isabell Suba: Männer zeigen Filme, Filmbranche, Sexismus, Quote - SPIEGEL ONLINE
"Habt Mut, probiert aus, macht Fehler!" Viele Regisseure schrecken davor zurück, eine Botschaft ihrer Filme zu benennen, Šuba, 27, steht zum feministisch-agitatorischen Ansatz ihres ersten Langspielfilms. In der Branche trifft sie damit einen empfindlichen Nerv: Seitdem ein Kollektiv aus Künstlerinnen und Filmemacherinnen im Mai 2012 einen viel beachteten Brandbrief veröffentlichte, der die Festivalleitung von Cannes 2012 scharf kritisierte, weil keine einzige Regisseurin im Wettbewerb vertreten war, diskutiert die Szene weltweit über die fehlende Präsenz und Förderung von Regisseurinnen. - http://www.spiegel.de/video/neu-im-kino-maenner-zeigen-filme-frauen-ihre-brueste-video-1512781.html

Diversity and Startups - Y Combinator Posthaven
"Sexism in tech is real. One of the most insidious things happening in the debate is people claiming versions of “other industries may have problems with sexism, but our industry doesn’t.” Both men and women claim this, even though it keeps getting harder to do in the face of shocks like the Tinder texts.

Memo to my daughter: “Keep your eye on the ball and hit hard” | PandoDaily
What I love about Abramson’s [...] she’s named it, she’s owned it, but she doesn’t make herself a victim. She knows she lives in a sexist world and that makes her victories– and even her defeats– that much sweeter. This is how we should talk about women in the world. Not stupid debates about having it all. Taking the world as it exists, naming it, shrugging, and continuing to fight. // +++ // http://www.newrepublic.com/article/118735/problem-esquires-praise-42-year-old-women-amy-poehler "entrenched short-sightedness and sexist cruelty of male-controlled media [...] Yay, thanks for some crumbs of enlightened thinking, for some slightly nuanced improvements in the daily, punishing business of publicly evaluating and then reevaluating women’s worth. [...] 'I don’t fucking care if you like it.' [...] Social Media [frictionless, not thinking twice or setting something aside for a day]. [Women's] life['s and worth's] are up for public evaluation.

The Future of Pando | Ugly.
The fact is, I’m getting a total pass for something I have repeatedly said was my responsibility, while my female business partner is receiving the full blame. It seems to me that either the person or persons spreading the smears about Pando has decided that a female employer is deserving of abuse and scorn in a way that a male boss isn’t, or they’ve cynically concluded that a female boss presents a much easier target for an Internet hate campaign. [...] In the past 72 hours, I’ve come to truly realize what female founders and CEOs in our industry deal with every day of their lives. That it took me this long to understand is another of my many failings. The ugliness has to stop. [ It is easier, faster to bash the weaker sex. especially if the women on top is not apologetic. it seems. men + anonymity of internet and the non-attachment, non-face-to-face situation, feel the urge to say stuff like X, about Sarah Lacy and the other week about Marissa Mayer, who overslept. ]

New York Times fights to limit criticism over apparent Abramson pay disparity | Media | theguardian.com
$475,000 vs $559,000 [...] The publication of the salary figures, which could not be independently confirmed but which neither the Times nor any of the protagonists denied, came as the newspaper fought waves of controversy over Abramson’s sudden dismissal. The revelations over the pay gap contributed to charges that sexism was at play. The failure of Sulzberger to articulate a justification for Abramson’s summary dismissal other than her style of managing the newsroom also led to charges that a man would not have been treated the same way. [...] The Times was playing damage control in its newsroom Thursday in an effort to reassure women in particular that Abramson had not been discriminated against. [...] [Fired her because they] didn’t think it was appropriate for her to take a warlike footing.” - http://nyr.kr/1mYSQG6 "brusque manner" SRSLY!? & http://nyr.kr/1hTB2J1 "ushed out for being “pushy,” a gendered critique." + http://nyr.kr/1g9SGgs

BBC Newsbeat - Beyonce: Stop buying into the myth of gender equality
Beyonce has said gender equality is a myth and people need to "demand" women get the same opportunities as men. The US singer made the comments as part of The Shriver Report, which is examining the rates of financial insecurity among American women. "We need to stop buying into the myth about gender equality. It isn't a reality yet," wrote Beyonce. "Equality will be achieved when men and women are granted equal pay and equal respect."
