Alfred Hitchcock Obsession withTippi Hedren: Fact Or Fiction?

Alfred Hitchcock  Obsession withTippi Hedren: Fact Or Fiction? | Soup for thought | Scoop.it

Abuse women in the entertainment world is nothing new!

Tippi Hedren's nightmarish experience with Alfred Hitchcock is the subject of HBO's 'The Girl,' starring Sienna Miller.

Doing some research, I'm highly skeptical of most of Tippi's negative remarks.

1) She previously alleged that  Sean Connery made unsolicited sexual advances toward her; it was hoax.

2) Tippe Hedren also alleged that Hitchcock  abused Kim Novack when Kim didn't complain

3) Hitchcock also abuse big name satrs like Grace Kelly, Doris Day, and Kim Novack putting up with such abuse.

4)Also don't believe that an English director could get Hedren blackballed throughout Hollywood

Myth is sometimes more memorable than real

  • The one thing we can learn from women in business is to care about the person and situation at hand.
  • Listen, wait to speak and understand the human emotion that drives an issue before jumping in to fix things.
  • Men can certainly learn from women that persistency pays off.
  • Women tend to express the positive thoughts they have toward someone or something more than men.
  •  While most men learn team-building skills through sports, they often do not bring those skills to the workplace.

The workplace is unequal, but gender equality in the workplace is the best it's ever been. With millennial women leading the charge, there's no telling what another 30 years will bring! Source: HumanResourcesMBA.net
malek's insight:

Female Power Progress In Points

  • Women earn substantially less than men on average and are severely under-represented at the top of organisations.
  • Female politicians such as Margaret Thatcher and Mrs Clinton have taught younger women that anything is possible.
  • The best-educated women have always been more likely than other women to work, even after having children.
  • But the biggest reason why women remain frustrated is more profound: many women are forced to choose between motherhood and careers.
  • The combination of an ageing workforce and a more skill-dependent economy means that countries will have to make better use of their female populations.

‘What I Wore When Sexually Assaulted’: Women of Twitter Report | Soup for thought | Scoop.it

malek's insight:

Oh boy, women wear like sluts to be raped?!

Time to debunk the correlation between clothing and rape.

To make it clear, sexual assault is never the victim’s fault. Someone has to act to commit rape. No one forces that choice. If seeing an enticing woman led men to conclude, “I’ve got to rape her,” all men would be rapists! what a ridiculous logic.

Why women don’t need secret business rules from men / Infographic

Why women don’t need secret business rules from men / Infographic | Soup for thought | Scoop.it
Leading finance company Ernst & Young has released an infographic detailing the “seven secret business rules men don’t share with women.”
According to its author Maria Pinelli – the firm’s Global Vice Chair of Strategic Growth Markets – male entrepreneurs have “unwritten codes of business conduct” that give them the edge.
malek's insight:

Here's the main points

  •  Anyone who has even a vague grasp of current affairs will know women are woefully unrepresented when it comes to leadership in the workplace.
  • A 2009 study by the Fawcett Society found that 51% of women and men from middle management to director level identify stereotyping as the major hurdle facing women at work.
  • Men shrug off a thank you; but don’t mind your manners in front of women and frankly, that relationship is TOAST.
  • There are many reasons why women don’t get the top jobs in business.
  • Women don’t need to be like men in the workplace; we bring with us our own skill sets.

Women Leaders Must Dive In, Not Just Lean In (Part 1)

Women Leaders Must Dive In, Not Just Lean In (Part 1) | Soup for thought | Scoop.it
There is a women’s leadership movement afoot that needs to transition from underground grassroots to mainstream establishment. This isn’t about goodwill, preferences or representation. Mobilizing women into leadership positions is mandatory for sustainable economic growth, global competitiveness and innovation across all industries. It’s time for women to dive-in, head-first and heart-strong. They must actively deploy their unique ability to see with wide-angle vision and sow opportunities with a passionate pursuit – as do all great pioneers that change the status quo and build new bridges. International Women’s Day, recently celebrated on March 8, reminded us of “the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future.” Women are ready to live with an entrepreneurial spirit and activate their ability to connect the dots of resources and relationships to create and sustain momentum. Women wired to naturally promote the spirit of giving and lead to leave a legacy will cultivate continuous impact and influence in the industries they serve.

One woman’s movement to strip beauty standards and reclaim her face

One woman’s movement to strip beauty standards and reclaim her face | Soup for thought | Scoop.it

This March, I’m challenging myself to an entire month without makeup.


People wear makeup for various reasons. Some wear it to emphasize their ethnic identity, some to accentuate their gender identity. Others use makeup as an empowering survival tool in an oppressed culture, while others consider their makeup to be an ongoing art piece in self-expression. Some reasons are positive, but my reason for wearing makeup was not. I wanted to be perfect.
