1) post on encouraging leadership in women by not calling girls bossy from an early age )with photo link to FB exec Sandra Sandberg ) descends into a row about how she's no model of a leader, "bossy" girls don't make good leaders etc
Even worse was a comment on a great post by (male) inventors of anti -date drug nail varnish detector with a v senior male colleague of one of my colleagues saying "yeah, right, will it be a pretty colour though?" I have disconnected from him on point of principle shame as highly useful job contact Patriarchy, hey?
I find such comments are rarely challenged in the way they would be on FB as users feel anything controversial would be viewed dimly. Yet these men feel no such compunction. Thoughts please?
Yes, it does. But sadly, like avoiding pregnancy, the burden often tends to fall on us more.
I am also hating the whitewashing of many women's lives on the site. Few serious posts by working mothers upfront about it, not necessarily talking about it, just open. Many, many about portfolio careers -male model. Reminds me of many a cv -women who post openly about their duties on the pta and running a home seem laughable in a corporate environment yet most organisations ask you to account for career breaks. What to do?
I have an MBA and tons of experience ffs, but can I get a decent part-time role??! Like many a women around me am a completely underused resource, surrounded by often mediocre child-free women and men (mostly working fathers) clambering over me to promotion. Very bitter emoticon.
