Single Childfree Women Don't Get The Same Pay...
Early in my career, I had a male manager who casually told us during an all-hands meeting that one reason we would not be getting raises or paid time off was because we did not have children to support. It took me years to realize how unprofessional, shocking and inappropriate that statement was. At the time, no one challenged the manager’s statement. The meeting continued. There were both male and female colleagues in the room, and as far as I knew, we all had important people in our lives.https://www.huffpost.com/entry/single-employees-flexibility_l_5d2f8414e4b0419fd32788d3?utm_medium=facebook&utm_campaign=hp_fb_pages&ncid=fcbklnkushpmg00000046&utm_source=women_fb&fbclid=IwAR3vcYT06-4GuMkOHSQlsEKAhECLgdiMq-ZKkmoMgt0t0QOktjHg160E7pg

America has no law on paid leave for new parents
The president’s Commission on the Status of Women was unequivocal in its recommendation: “Paid maternity leave or comparable insurance benefits should be provided for women workers.” That conclusion was reached in 1963, when John Kennedy was president, but America still has no federal policy in place to guarantee working mothers or fathers paid time off to care for their new babies. It is one of only two countries in the world, along with Papua New Guinea, that have no statutory national policy of paid maternity leave. The average member of the oecd, a club of mostly rich countries, offers new mothers 18 weeks of paid leave.https://www.economist.com/united-states/2019/07/18/america-is-the-only-rich-country-without-a-law-on-paid-leave-for-new-parents?fsrc=scn/fb/te/bl/ed/americaistheonlyrichcountrywithoutalawonpaidleavefornewparentslookingafterbaby&fbclid=IwAR2AVTDDaUoUD5ODSVLQyitN1qi1I7VqJ8x3WV7dhCbNiNxBZKL0TM10a1c

Harmful gender stereotypes in adverts banned
The ban covers scenarios such as a man with his feet up while a woman cleans, or a woman failing to park a car. The UK's advertising watchdog introduced the ban because it found some portrayals could play a part in "limiting people's potential". It said it was pleased with how advertisers had responded.https://www.bbc.com/news/business-48628678?ns_source=facebook&ocid=socialflow_facebook&ns_mchannel=social&ns_campaign=bbcnews&fbclid=IwAR10sRf_OqFhYclYCOkOXy_s4hw8yZK3Lhi8ewfd1nIZvgRhYR37jdP1Pqw

WHAT SHOULD WE DO ABOUT WORKPLACE BULLYING?
According to Safework Australia, over a third of us have been sworn at or yelled at while on the job, and one in ten people say they’ve experienced more persistent bullying. The impact on mental health is huge.https://www.sbs.com.au/news/the-feed/what-should-we-do-about-workplace-bullying?fbclid=IwAR2eqIR-Hv3j1mHsS8VjGq3WDS_lUzkToDY9wn6uyItxrRbInUf6yec9XQg

Why You Shouldn't Marry Young
Everyone in Vinton marries their high school sweetheart. The small town tucked in Louisiana’s corner pocket has a population hovering just above 3,000. Marrying a classmate fresh out of high school is as expected as the train that whistles past the feed store every day at 3 p.m. I thought I was different. And I was. I was gay, and whether I sat in the pews of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church or on the bleachers of Vinton Middle School, being gay made me an abomination. And my family came from the next town over, which due to small-town insulation, might as well have been a different country. The Vinton locals who’d lived there for generations never let me forget that I didn’t belong, that I wasn’t one of them. https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/marrying-your-high-school-sweetheart_us_5c365bc2e4b070b69ae0784f?ncid=fcbklnkushpmg00000046&utm_medium=facebook&utm_campaign=hp_fb_pages&utm_source=women_fb&fbclid=IwAR0zQXzouIxhlt3yyoOae2hRi2UGnl5jCokM2ZQxYWlo7Ik7gxVBx1qVIGo

Women Aren't Nags—We're Just Fed Up
For Mother's Day I asked for one thing: a house cleaning service. Bathrooms and floors specifically, windows if the extra expense was reasonable. The gift, for me, was not so much in the cleaning itself but the fact that for once I would not be in charge of the household office work. I would not have to make the calls, get multiple quotes, research and vet each service, arrange payment and schedule the appointment. The real gift I wanted was to be relieved of the emotional labor of a single task that had been nagging at the back of my mind. The clean house would simply be a bonus.https://www.harpersbazaar.com/culture/features/a12063822/emotional-labor-gender-equality/?src=socialflowFBHBZ&utm_campaign=socialflowFBHBZ&utm_medium=social-media&utm_source=facebook&fbclid=IwAR2Rnmjj1Yn9oDy3qQDoiyLuL1I6uy_f1KBErGwVZTx52_ho0qDlGL6w36Y

French author says women over 50 too old to love
A popular French author and television presenter has caused outrage after claiming he was “incapable” of loving a woman aged over 50. Yann Moix, 50, told a glossy magazine: “Come on now, let’s not exaggerate! That’s not possible … too, too old.” In the interview with Marie-Claire magazine’s French edition, Moix, the author of several prize-winning novels, added that women in their 50s were “invisible” to him.https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/jan/07/french-author-yann-moix-sparks-row-with-comments-about-women-over-50?CMP=fb_gu&fbclid=IwAR3zGlFlnasqlttKfGViR8b6MuIJKPMtyD2VNjiOPkEdI3S--dPKnEjAteA

Remote Workers Are Outperforming Office Workers...
Have you seen any of these gimmicky office designs? Candy dispensers in conference rooms. Hammocks and indoor treehouses. Tech companies tend to be the worst offenders with the startup favorites: beer taps and table tennis. Maybe there is fun for a moment when the candy bar drops -- but does all that money spent on gimmicks deliver anything meaningful for the people who work there? I have to wonder why company founders are trying so hard with these in-office "perks." I get that the goal is to create collaboration and fun. But I think this is doing more harm than good. And research shows that the problem is only getting worse.https://www.inc.com/brian-de-haaff/3-ways-remote-workers-outperform-office-workers.html?cid=sf01002&fbclid=IwAR2RvYWHLiRY6ax3mTdsEnyo1vmmKLMxp2zDxfwJt9MmBT-oACKz_TlM-lA

Miranda Kerr: Women "Need to Make a Little Effort"
Just a few months after she tied the knot to Evan Spiegel at her California home, Miranda Kerr has opened up about married life. The model revealed that she dresses up when her husband, who is Snapchat's CEO and co-founder, comes home from work. "My grandma taught me that men are visual and you need to make a little effort," the model said in an interview with The Edit. "So when [Evan] comes home, I make sure to have a nice dress on and the candles lit. We make time to have a nice dinner together."https://www.harpersbazaar.com/celebrity/latest/a12197788/miranda-kerr-women-more-effort-please-men/?src=socialflowFBHBZ&utm_medium=social-media&utm_source=facebook&utm_campaign=socialflowFBHBZ&fbclid=IwAR2KBHL6iou0aRtIqsPk6xo-8rcCfc1uYSmeUrrj_TJOgVVjJ9wFQho-zaQ Image Credit
