Feminism is not a 4 letter-word

I’ve been working with a diverse group of Learning professionals in Madrid today, exploring the Social Age and the ways in which learning has evolved. I sketched this up with a small group, to capture the narrative of ‘what learning is about in the Social Age’ and share it now, not really as a finished…

the world has made astounding strides in reducing poverty and improving the health, education, and living conditions of hundreds of millions of people. And yet, as impressive as these gains may be, they have not been distributed equally. Both between countries and within them, deep disparities in human development remain..
It has also become clear that inequality erodes social cohesion, and increases the risk of violence and instability.
Wealthy women in Scotland’s largest city are now living more than a decade longer than their poorer counterparts – and the gap is widening.
According to a new report, from the Glasgow Centre for Population Health,due to be released tomorrow, on health in Glasgow, the average life expectancy of affluent females is 85.2, while women living in the city's most deprived areas are only expected to reach 74.5.
The gap has increased from 8.1 to 10.7 years over a 15-year period - a finding described as "unacceptable" by anti-poverty campaigners who argue life expectancy should not depend on wealth or the lottery of where you are born and live.
NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde (NHSGGC) said it is taking steps to improve health and quality of life throughout the city, while the Scottish Government said the report highlights the need to tackle the underlying causes of health inequality.
Peter Kelly, director of the Poverty Alliance, said: "It is unacceptable in 21st century Glasgow that the life expectancy between the richest and poorest remains so wide, and is in fact continuing to grow for women.
"We know that women are more likely to be in poverty than men, and there are many reasons for this including lower wages and a higher dependency on the social security system.
"The negative impact of poverty on health is well documented, and this research shows that we are still not making the progress we need to in this area. People's life expectancy should not rely on their postcode.
Second version: growing disparities in wealth are leading to privileged treatment of the rich.

In this research-in-progress work, we adopt an action design research approach and drawing upon theories from the psychology and technology adoption literature, we develop a set of design principles that informs the design of user experiences for wearable computing devices.
SURVIVING AND THRIVING IN THE 85% WORLD
Here’s how I explain it to my clients: You could cure cancer and 85% of the world will name hospitals after you, give you a Nobel prize, throw ticker tape parades and name you TIME magazine’s, ‘Person of the Year.’
But watch out for the other 15%—they’ll come after you. You’re the bad guy who put pharmaceutical companies out of business, emptied hospital beds, took away business from respected oncologists and put compassionate cancer nurses on the unemployment line.
In other words, 85% is the new 100%.
