his “Women: Like men, only cheaper” image should look familiar–we’ve sarcastically used to“celebrate” Equal Pay Day in the past. But an Australian tech executive was all-too-serious when he included it as a slide during his talk at a tech conference recently. Evan Thornleye explained how “forward-thinking” people such as himself can take advantage of the wage gap by hiring qualified women “for relatively cheap.”
Not sure if it's a joke or a bitter fact.
These high-powered women are making great contributions to the world of education. Whether they are the President of a prestigious college or an entrepreneur, these women are making great strides in the “old boys’ club” of education.
Girls who have been educated are likely to marry later and to have smaller and healthier families. Educated women can recognize the importance of health care and know how to seek it for themselves and their children.

if your insomnia reaches the point where it is making it hard to function during the day, talk to your doctor about lifestyle modifications and other options.

Women are victims of only domestic violence, rape, harassment, under-payment, single-motherhood.
Don't let men hog all the pleasure of blowing past people stuck in traffic. Zooming past frustrated drivers is a power trip I'd hate anyone to miss. Bonus: You're saving the environment while they sit there puffing out carbon into the atmosphere. You deserve to enjoy yourself.
So get on it, ladies! The bike lane is not a boys' club.
But this week a male administrator at my daughter’s high school told girls at an assembly that they should not show bra …
The funny thing: there’s a common assumption that female fashion is primarily intended to get male attention and male approval, when in fact it often has little to do with men. Thank you @pdeppisch
The good news is that, after a decade of declining, the median American income stopped falling and just stagnated last year. The bad news is that the median American income just stagnated last year.

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?

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.
