    • Left-Leaning Google Pays Men Higher Salaries Than More Experienced Women: Report
      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)

    • 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.

    • Waitrose is selling gender-neutral Mother's Day cards as retailers reduce their use of the M-word to make today's celebration more "transgender inclusive", write Andrew Gilligan and Vincent Wood.

      The supermarket chain is selling a "Happy You Day" card in its Mother's Day range in which the word "mother" does not appear.

      Waitrose said the move was aimed at "broadening out who the cards can go to, whether it's grandmas or transgender mums". Traditional cards are still sold.

      Waitrose has been joined by other retailers, including Scribbler, whose Mother's Day offerings include a "Two mums are better than one" card for same-sex couples and a "Dad, thanks for being the most amazing mum" card.

    • A considerable majority of both British women and men believe feminism has gone as far as it should go or even too far, and fewer than one in three defines themselves as a feminist, a poll has found.

      A total of 67 per cent of respondents thought the advance of feminism has either gone too far (40 per cent) or gone as far as it should go (27 per cent), according to the survey by Sky Data released on Internation Women's Day.

      Both sexes shared this opinion fairly evenly, with 61 per cent of females saying that the ideology has gone as far as it should go (26 per cent) or even too far (35 per cent).

      In stark contrast, only one in three Brits (33 per cent) believes the march of feminism has not gone far enough, and just one in ten says it has not gone nearly far enough.

      Yet, the 'feminist' label is affecting how British people interact socially.

      Male Uber drivers get paid 7 percent more than their female counterparts in the U.S., according to a new study (pdf) by Uber and Stanford economists.

      That's surprising, because Uber's driver assignments and pay are gender-blind, meaning a driver's gender isn't considered when matching riders or assigning fares. Rather, pay has to do with trip length, distance and whether it's happening during surge-price hours or not.

      There are more male drivers - women make up 27 percent of Uber drivers in the U.S. - and male drivers tend to work longer hours. However, on an hourly rate, women still make less, according to the data, which measured trips by 1.8 million drivers from 2015 to 2017.
