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.

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

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

Yellen losing Fed nod could have more to do with 2016 than Summers | ForexLive
The decision might be about gender but not in the way you think. Democrats hoping to place Hilary Clinton in the White House might think it’s a bridge too far to elect the first female President at the same time as Yellen leading the Fed. I tend to think the White House is looking for the best person for the economy but that might be naive in the cold, calculated world of US politics. In any case, Reuters cites a source close to Obama saying the president hasn’t made up his mind. + http://www.slate.com/blogs/xx_factor/2013/07/24/janet_yellen_is_the_most_qualified_pick_for_federal_reserve_chair_so_why.html + http://ftalphaville.ft.com/2013/07/24/1579542/why-yellen-should-be-the-next-fed-chair/ > http://www.forexlive.com/blog/2013/07/24/financial-times-why-yellen-should-be-the-next-fed-chair/ >> two guys at the helm was never a problem.
