Gender pay gap shrinking may have a strong impact on economy.
The old scripts that both men and women unwittingly follow still have amazing power.
People generally think that it is a good thing for women to be nice, nurturing and kind. And for men to be strong, assertive and ambitious. When women step outside of the prescribed niceness expected of all women, they are often penalized.”
It's not just a woman's problem -- "Take a very small hit to your social reputation," suggests a Yale SOM professor
Gender bias dominate the work place. Did you see/hear this mini story before?
Women: Married and Marginalized. Although over half the working population consists of women, there is a prevalent view that women are working to provide a secondary household income.
Women in Canada are expressing outrage on social media over missing and murdered aboriginal women in their country by tweeting, Facebooking and Instagramming with the hashtag #AmINext.

Domestic violence with a Canadian flavour.
It's not a social issue, it's a police force issue
the world of business is now changing into one of increasingly complex opportunities involving different cultures coming together to form partnerships. To be successful, you have to have a much better understanding of the party on the other side of the negotiating table so that you can effectively communicate with them regarding a shared or mutually beneficial outcome.
In general, women seek affinity and common ground. They are more concerned with relationship and mutual best interest not intimidation.
"But why would you stay if someone was abusing you?"
That's a distressingly common response to revelations of domestic violence. After a video was released yesterday showing former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice assaulting his th...
Way to go human race. You exceed my expectations.
A girl slaps an innocent boy, but this boy is still happy. Watch this video to know why?
Women in India have been surviving in a male-dominated society since a long time now, until recently, when women tried to break the centuries of shackles by venturing into male dominated areas.
Update: The running back had his contract terminated after initially earning a two-game suspension for the punch. Last week, the NFL commissioner sent a letter to team owners saying "domestic ...
This is the insidiousness of domestic violence: he hit her and SHE apologized.
No wonder why victims of domestic violence feel trapped, imagine how someone feels when they see people blaming Ray Rice's wife. Even more, breaking up with an abusive boyfriend can be extremely dangerous. You remember the story of Christy Mack and what her psychotic ex "War Machine" did to her...
"I have a boyfriend' is the easiest way to get a man to leave you alone. Because he respects another man more than you. #yesallwomen
Fusion network has a nice tool for estimating the costs of college.
Student loan is a whopping totalling $1 trillion .
Yet the myth persists that paying a ransom for a college degree is worth it, particularly at a top-tier institution.
Fortunately, this thinking is being challenged. When students and families realize they don’t have to overpay for college expenses, the bubble will burst
Thank you @Official AndreasCY for introducing us to this wonderful tool.
The ruling could slow the pace of deportations because it creates new legal grounds for women from Central America caught entering the country illegally in their fight to stay.
The ruling technically affects only Guatemalan women, but the woman's lawyer and other immigration advocates said the decision could open the door to asylum claims for women from other countries.
Do anti-feminists really know what they’re talking about? And how can we talk to anti-feminists about feminism in a healthy way?
There are a lot of myths about what it means to be a feminist – that feminists hate men, eschew “girly” things like dresses and heels, look down on stay-at-home moms, and want to take all the world’s power out of men’s hands.
And none of them are true – at least not universally.
In his four years in the Senate, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) has never witnessed the type of sexism detailed in Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand's (D-N.Y.) new book. Moreover, he thinks Gillibrand should name the male Senate colleagues who she said sexually har...
Sen. Johnson did not hear sexism jokes, didn't see sexism in media, in statistics. So, Sexism does not exist.
Read closely, fellas.
Women, like men, have the right to move throughout the world without constantly fearing for their safety, yet the burden of prevention continues to fall squarely on women's shoulders. One can't help but wonder, what would it look like if we talked to men about rape prevention in the same way we talk to women?
To those who say that anti-rape advice for potential victims is just "common sense", please know that statistically, only 10% of victims were raped by strangers. 90% of sexual assault survivors knew who their attackers were. Avoiding walking in dark streets didn't work for a majority of victims, because they were not raped in an alley, but in their own homes, or the homes of someone they trusted.
Ruzwana Bashir has been shunned, not thanked, for actions against sexual violence

From "leaning in" to "having it all," it can sometimes be hard to keep track of where we have and haven't made progress when it comes to gender roles.
Going to the extreme, like
