- Left-Leaning Google Pays Men Higher Salaries Than More Experienced Women: ReportDue 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 boycottMuslim 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.

- Many had complained that wearing short skirts made them feel uncomfortable while working, especially when putting luggage into overhead compartments or taking public transport to and from work. In 2014, Cathay Pacific flight attendants lobbied the company to change their uniforms arguing that they were too revealing and could provoke sexual harassment.

- 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.

There are no written words below the signs at the HealthEast Sports Center. But to one Woodbury couple, they might as well say, "Girls not welcome."
That's because all six silhouettes of athletes on the exterior appear to be male, they say. Inside, the walls are decorated with 18 male athletes and seven female.
"We do not suggest there were ill motives or bad intent. It may be implicit bias," said Robin Hennessy, who is lobbying the Woodbury City Council to change the figures. The goal, she said, is to "equally depict girls and women" at the $22 million sports center.

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.

- The Senate finally passed a bill that renders the national anthem gender neutral Wednesday despite the entrenched opposition of some Conservative senators.
The House of Commons overwhelmingly passed a private member's bill in 2016 that would alter the national anthem by replacing "in all thy sons command" with "in all of us command" as part of a push to strike gendered language from O Canada.
The bill is now headed for royal assent by the Governor General before it officially becomes law.

- The number of people who attended the Women's March in Chicago on Saturday exceeded the number who took part in the march one year ago this weekend, according to Chicago's ABC affiliate.
Roughly 50,000 more women attended the march this year, which was titled "March to the Polls" bringing the number to 300,000 participants.
Last year's event drew 250,000 marchers to the Windy City, according to the report.
CNN reported that Los Angeles also had their largest Women's March yet, with 500,000 people joining for the event this year.
