“There’s nothing gays hate more than when people treat us like women.”

I don’t think gay men are women or should be treated like them, but the attitude about women was practically sneering, as if, again, there’s nothing lower than being a woman.

10 Odd Stories Behind Famous Authors’ Nom de Plumes « Flavorwire

10 Odd Stories Behind Famous Authors’ Nom de Plumes « Flavorwire | Herstory | Scoop.it

Authors change their names for many reasons, but historically, one of the strongest reasons to use a pen name was to hide your lady bits. Back in the day, women writers were forced to use male pseudonyms. Despite much more equality between the sexes in present day, the tradition remains in the use of initials instead of first names, which immediately alert the male reader to “cooties”—something boys avoid at all costs. But gender isn’t the only guiding force when picking your pen name.

Personality, habits of thought and gender influence how we remember | Herstory | Scoop.it
We all have them -- positive memories of personal events that are a delight to recall, and painful recollections that we would rather forget. A new study reveals that what we do with our emotional memories and how they affect us has a lot to do with our gender, personality and the methods we use (often without awareness) to regulate our feelings.

Welfare cuts keep coming

Welfare cuts keep coming | Herstory | Scoop.it

by JASON DEPARLE, New York Times


Much as critics of the restrictions once warned, a program that built its reputation when times were good offered little help when jobs disappeared. Despite the worst economy in decades, the cash welfare rolls have barely budged.

 

Faced with flat federal financing and rising need, Arizona is one of 16 states that have cut their welfare caseloads further since the start of the recession -- in its case, by half. Even as it turned away the needy, Arizona spent most of its federal welfare dollars on other programs, using permissive rules to plug state budget gaps. Nationally, only 30 percent of the welfare money is spent on cash benefits.

 

The poor people dropped from cash assistance, mostly single mothers, talk with surprising openness about the desperate, and sometimes illegal, ways they make ends meet. They have sold food stamps, sold blood, skipped meals, shoplifted, doubled up with friends, scavenged trash bins for bottles and cans and returned to relationships with violent partners -- all with children in tow.  [MORE]

Wisconsin State Senator Says Women Are Paid Less Because ‘Money Is More Important For Men’

Wisconsin State Senator Says Women Are Paid Less Because ‘Money Is More Important For Men’ | Herstory | Scoop.it

By Travis Waldron, Think Progress

 

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) quietly repealed his state’s equal pay law last week, a decision that will make it harder for victims of wage discrimination to sue for lost earnings and back wages. The law was enacted primarily to address the massive pay gap that exists between male and female workers, which is even bigger in Wisconsin than in other states.

 

Repealing the law was a no-brainer for state Sen. Glenn Grothman (R), who led the effort because of his belief that pay discrimination is a myth driven by liberal women’s groups. Ignoring multiple studies showing that the pay gap exists, Grothman blamed females for prioritizing childrearing and homemaking instead of money, saying, “Money is more important for men.” [MORE]

In Honor of Beverly Cleary’s 96th Birthday | Herstory | Scoop.it
My first real book love was Beverly Cleary. In first grade, our school librarian Miss Heck (is that not the best elementary school librarian name ever?) read Henry and Ribsy out loud to us. It was a monumental event, because when she was finished reading that book we could check out the “grown up” books. At least we thought they were grown up books because they had chapters.
