Geishas. Un terme qui incarne pour beaucoup d’entre nous le Japon au féminin. Et pourtant, elles sont loin d’incarner la Japonaise du 21e siècle. Tiraillée entre tradition et modernité, celle-ci se bat aujourd’hui pour concilier vie professionnelle et vie familiale. Et il y a encore fort à faire.
Militante, voyageuse, écrivain et féministe, Flora Tristan fut la première « grand reporter » féminin. « Elle voulait tout connaître, tout observer, et elle vit tout ce que cette nation renferme de plaies hideuses et profondes », écrivit d’elle sa disciple et amie, Eléonore Blanc.

Her name is Josefina Vazquez Mota. The 51-year-old mother of three girls wants to be the next Mexican president. The fact that she's a woman, she has said, gives her a competitive advantage. "Yes, I'm here because I am a woman; but above everything else, I'm here because I have a political career focused on serving people," Vazquez Mota says.
Everything we know about improving gender diversity points to one uniquely important success factor. Great programs notwithstanding, brilliant arguments in abundance, the pursuit of enhanced gender equality flourishes or flounders with the interest and investment of an organization’s top leadership.
I am Sam Sheppard, the licensed builder behind this National first initiative; a small lot home designed, constructed and supplied predominantly by women. Without a doubt this has become a career highlight for me, inspired by a conversation between Carey DeBoer from Totally Workwear and Radmilla Desic, Queensland President for NAWIC.

Marshall said many people have distorted views of power and authority, believing money is the main motivation for good work. “In the short term, that’s true,” Marshall said. “But in the long term for sustainability, creativity and high levels of innovation, you need long-term commitment, and it doesn’t matter what you pay people.” Women typically want employers to “honor who they are” and feel most motivated when they can connect their talents to the organization, she said. “What motivates people is a sense of purpose, a sense of meaning in their work, a sense of freedom and autonomy, of what we’re trying to achieve together is so much bigger and more important than any one of us,” she said.
Killed, aborted or neglected, at least 100m girls have disappeared—and the number is rising.
In China and northern India more than 120 boys are being born for every 100 girls. Nature dictates that slightly more males are born than females to offset boys’ greater susceptibility to infant disease. But nothing on this scale.
“Nous traitons les enfants comme des individus plutôt qu’en fonction de leur sexe”, explique Lotta Rajalin, la directrice d’Egalia. Car les écoles maternelles sont censées combattre la répartition traditionnelle des rôles entre les sexes, promouvoir l’égalité et laisser les enfants se forger librement leur propre identité. C’est ce que préconise la loi sur l’enseignement de la petite enfance de 1998.
When I graduated from biz school, I thought I had to be superhuman if I were ever to be a successful CEO. But after two dozen years of being a CEO, I’ve come to learn that the best leaders aren’t the comic strip heroes, they’re just super humans who have developed the four capacities that Goleman outlined for EI: self-awareness, self-management, social awareness and relationship management. As Goleman recently told me, “EI includes a broad spectrum of competencies, and no leader is A+ across the board – even the best have room to improve.”
Dans un monde marqué par l’enfermement et le voilement multiséculaire des femmes, cette exhibition, aussi soudaine que massive, est proprement révolutionnaire. Or, c’est dans cet espace que se transforment les mentalités, et avec elles l’image des femmes.
Inégalités salariales, faible représentation dans les conseils d’administrations, fermeture des centres pour femmes victimes de violence domestique ou encore réforme polémique de la loi sur l’avortement.
