Wage gap could explain why women are more likely to be anxious and depressed than men

Wage gap could explain why women are more likely to be anxious and depressed than men | Herstory | Scoop.it
The odds of major depressive disorder and generalized anxiety disorder were markedly greater among women who earned less than their male counterparts, with whom they were matched on education and years of experience, according to new research conducted at Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health. Results of the study are online in the journal Social Science & Medicine.

The odds that an American woman was diagnosed with depression in the past year are nearly twice that of men. However, this disparity looks very different when accounting for the wage gap: Among women whose income was lower than their male counterparts, the odds of major depression were nearly 2.5 times higher than men; but among women whose income equaled or exceeded their male counterparts, their odds of depression were no different than men.

Results were similar for generalized anxiety disorder. Overall,

Female Student Sparks Debate With 'I Don't Shave' Essay

Female Student Sparks Debate With 'I Don't Shave' Essay | Herstory | Scoop.it
Yasmin Gasimova writes that shaving is “unfair” to women.

Alexander Yakovlev's comment, June 2, 2015 9:36 AM
This article seems controversial to me. Gasimova states how she wants to look natural and that there are nothing wrong with women hairs, yet she wears make up, uses deodorant, and does other things that is unnatural in nature. I hate how people choose to do only one part of their statements. It is the same way when women wants an equal rights, yet they don’t want to go work at the cement manufactory as men do. All this arguments are unfair. She doesn’t want to shave that’s her business, but I think that every country has their own standards for shaving. As it mentioned, she is Turkish, so in Turkey it’s probably fine for women not to shave, but she probably forgot that she is not in turkey and there are different standards in different countries. IF you don’t like it, go back to Turkey nothing holds you there.

The Women Behind Erotic Fiction

The Women Behind Erotic Fiction | Herstory | Scoop.it
Warning: The captions of this post are excerpts from the featured writers' erotic literature and contain sexually explicit language.  Who are the people behind erotic fiction, those accounts of racy affairs and clandestine romances so often stashed away in secret, read in the privacy of one’s home?
Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

Quote: “Easy to imagine they would be foxy, leather-clad mistresses, whip in one hand, the other on the keyboard. I knew the reality would be very different. I wanted to see behind their pseudonyms and secret lives,” Woolfall said in a statement.


Why even begin with the nasty stereotype? Do men get that wrap?

The Cleveland Cavaliers' Video of Domestic Violence Wasn't a 'Mistake' | Herstory | Scoop.it
This video, which spread like wildfire across social media last week, was just the latest example of the way organizations continuously downplay the impact of domestic violence and rape culture. In turn, this betrays how little we as a society care for, or even think of, victims of interpersonal violence.

Who Farts? And Who Cares?

Who Farts? And Who Cares? | Herstory | Scoop.it

Sociologists Martin Weinberg and Colin Williams wanted to know. They and their team interviewed 172 college students about their habits and concerns about farting and pooping. They published their results in an article called Fecal Matters. They discovered that everybody farts and everybody cares, but not everyone cares all the time or equally.


They separated their results by gender and sexual orientation. When they asked people if they were worried that the hearer would “feel disgust,” heterosexual women were most likely to agree and heterosexual men the least, with non-heterosexual men and women in the middle, but flipped such that men were more worried than women.
