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. [To this day.]" +++ bit.ly/1nXOGy8

Jill Abramson was everything to young women at the New York Times.
The media called her “brusque” and  “polarizing.” But to young women at the New York Times, Jill Abramson was everything. [...] The mark Abramson made on her female employees wasn’t just a matter of optics. Abramson was committed to increasing women’s representation at the paper, and she got results. || + http://www.slate.com/blogs/xx_factor/2014/05/15/jill_abramson_fired_from_the_new_york_times_here_s_why_it_stings.html + http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/2014/05/19/313941751/fired-new-york-times-editor-losing-a-job-you-love-hurts + http://thinkprogress.org/culture/2014/05/16/3438585/jill-abramson-and-nora-ephron-its-personal/ ""Understand: every attack on Hillary Clinton for not knowing her place is an attack on you."" + http://commonhealth.wbur.org/2014/05/jill-abramson-grads-fungible

Dear Jill: From One Pushy Media Dame to Another | Re/code
+ This has been a common theme in the coverage of the Abramson debacle — how different behavioral standards are applied to men and women, how strongly confident women get turned into waspish shrews, while men become commanding figures of authority. That’s the cliché, of course, but it does not make it any less true. || ++ http://www.theguardian.com/media/2014/may/18/arthur-sulzberger-jill-abramson-new-york-times || ++ http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/2014/05/19/313941751/fired-new-york-times-editor-losing-a-job-you-love-hurts + http://www.theguardian.com/media/2014/may/18/arthur-sulzberger-jill-abramson-new-york-times

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
