    • Technology will widen pay gap and hit women hardest
      https://www.theguardian.com/inequality/2018/jan/21/technology-widen-pay-gap-hit-womens-jobs-hardest-davos-report?CMP=fb_gu

      The gulf between men and women at work - in both pay and status - is likely to widen unless action is taken to tackle inequality in high-growth sectors such as technology, say researchers at this week's World Economic Forum summit in Davos.

      A new WEF report on the future of jobs finds the dominance of men in industries such as information and biotechnology, coupled with the enduring failure of women to rise to the top even in the health and education sectors, is helping to reverse gender equality after years of improvements.

      The report estimates that 57% of the jobs set to be displaced by technology between now and 2026 belong to women. According to Saadia Zahidi, the WEF's head of education, gender and work, this underlines that global efforts to reduce gender inequality in business are stalling.

    • The portion of VC-backed startups founded by women stays stubbornly stagnant
      It was a tumultuous year for the technology industry, with sexual harassment, pay gaps and under-representation of women often dominating the headlines. The technology industry's belief that its mission is to change the world has steeply contrasted with its discriminatory treatment of women.

      And while sexism was not born in Silicon Valley, sexual harassment is proving to be toxic for business, as experienced by Uber, SoFi, Binary Capital and others. As part of our larger Q4 and 2017 coverage, let's see how the venture industry invested in women last year.

      Or women just aren't entrepreneurs?

    • Catherine Deneuve Apologizes to Victims after Denouncing #MeToo
      The French actress Catherine Deneuve apologized to victims of sexual violence who decried a letter she signed with more than 100 other Frenchwomen denouncing the #MeToo movement and its French counterpart, #Balancetonporc, or "Expose Your Pig."

      In a letter published in the newspaper Libération on Sunday, Ms. Deneuve said that while she stood by the original statement, published in another newspaper, Le Monde, she did not condone sexual abuse or misconduct.

      "I'm a free woman and I will remain one," Ms. Deneuve said in the letter to Libération. "I fraternally salute all women victims of odious acts who may have felt aggrieved by the letter in Le Monde. It is to them, and them alone, that I apologize."

      Last week's letter, which said that using social media as a forum for sharing experiences of sexual misconduct had gone too far, drew some praise but also international criticism. The signatories argued that the #MeToo movement had caused people who did not deserve to be condemned to face the same consequences as sex offenders.

    • Left-Leaning Google Pays Men Higher Salaries Than More Experienced Women: Report
      [quote]..[/quote]

      Due to a specialized brain, a male is often able to do two different things simultaneously (e.g., working on a piece of machinery and carrying on a conversation). Because information is processed in both hemispheres at the same time, a female can find it difficult to do more than one thing at a time. (Stump, Jane Barr, PhD. What's the Difference? NY: William Morrow and Company, Inc., 1985. p 206)

    • New York governor proposes laws to combat sexual harassment
      One major problem in a structure like the USA government is that the politicians are mostly lawyers, and they have never seen a "problem" that did not need yet another "law".

      So sick and tired of all these laws. All the idiot has to do is his job which is to use the budget to equip the already bloated legions of government workers to do their jobs.

    • Man accused of months of rape, gf pissed he wudn't have sex, 40,000 of her texts found right b4 trial

      Yeah, pretty funny, think somebody posted this link last summer. If I am up in middle of night, or real early, listen to BBC World, b4 Morning Edition comes on. I am still really pissed that my "small town" NPR station got shut down/ gobbled up by StL libbie one last year. They did a lot of short local news, balanced. Would have interviews with Catholics, VFW, or Lion's club about fundraisers. Did a lot of in-station produced music shows.

      I knew all the old execs(30 yr vets) and even used to volunteer on phones during pledge drive when in their college part-time. Quit giving when got "radio personalities" in there and started bagging.

      Really support community radio. Little govt. control/funding so programming is dictated by listener contributors and small local businesses. A few paid staff, but usually on-air is mostly passionate very professional-stlye volunteers, that have been involved in music for 30+ years.

    • Do any men here ever sit down to pee?

      How many of you piss outside?

      I do whenever I get the chance. Feels like marking my territory. I spray it around the plants in the dirt. Other animals will smell the fact that this is my place. Also, saves water.

    • Malaysia, Indonesia Muslim groups call for Starbucks boycott
      Muslim groups in Malaysia and Indonesia have called for a boycott of Starbucks because of the coffee chain's support for LGBT rights.

      Malaysian group Perkasa, which supports a hard-line form of Islam and nationalism, this week called on its more than 500,000 members to stay away from Starbucks coffee shops. This week and last, leaders of Indonesia's second largest mainstream Muslim group, Muhammadiyah, with an estimated 29 million members, denounced the chain.

      The groups were apparently reacting to comments made several years ago by former CEO Howard Schultz in support of gay rights that drew renewed attention amid an increasingly anti-LGBT climate in both of the predominantly Muslim countries.

    • When women are put in positions of authority they ruin everything. Today's example: Carrie Tolsted formerly of Wells Fargo
      [quote]..[/quote]

      That Fortune article tries to paint it like women are being discriminated against by mentioning that Tolstedt, a woman, had a higher percentage of her compensation "clawed back" than CEO John Stumpf did. What these stupid fucks don't realize is that the woman was the instigator of the whole thing along with trying to prevent anyone from stopping her while Stumpf simply didn't act upon this dumb cunt's actions fast enough. He shouldn't have to pay as high a percentage of his salary.

      Also from that Fortune article:

      Tolstedt, of course, is not the only executive on Fortune's Most Powerful Women list to experience a sharp fall from grace. Marissa Mayer, the outgoing CEO of Yahoo (yhoo, +1.66%), fell off last year's list after she was forced to sell her company to Verizon (vz, -0.25%) when she could not execute an effective turnaround of its advertising business. Heather Bresch, CEO of Mylan (myl, -0.88%), remains on the list as she retains her status as the most powerful woman in the pharmaceutical industry - but a scandal involving steep price hikes on the life-saving drug Epipen has sparked outrage from readers and calls to remove her from the rankings.
