Mercredi, 11 Décembre 2013 14:45 COMMUNIQUÉ Vincent Larivière Vincent Larivière, professeur en sciences de l'information à l'Université de Montréal, et des collègues de l'UQÀM et de l'Université de l'Indiana ont démontré, après l'analyse de l'autorat de 5,4 millions d'articles évalués par des pairs, que les femmes sont largement sous-représentées dans le système de publication savante.

L'évaluation par les pairs est-elle systématiquement misogyne?

Il explique : « Bien que la population estudiantine soit majoritairement féminine, le corps professoral est en grande majorité masculin, et il en va de même pour les auteurs et les citations d'articles de recherche. Parmi les premiers auteurs d'articles, on compte presque deux fois plus d'hommes que de femmes. Notre étude est la première à quantifier cette disparité dans toutes les disciplines et à travers le monde. Les chercheurs ont extrait les articles scientifiques publiés entre 2008 et 2012 de la base de données Web of Science, laquelle précise le nom et l'affiliation des auteurs.

Cette dernière nous propose une Andrea Dworkin. To Address Gender Gap, Is It Enough to Lean In? Judging by the popularity of her best-selling book, “Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead,” the answer would seem to be yes.

To Address Gender Gap, Is It Enough to Lean In?

But Ms. Sandberg, the chief operating officer of Facebook and one of the richest women in America, ran into a wall of criticism for playing down the institutional constraints that make it so difficult for most women to advance their careers while having a rich family life, from impossible school schedules to inflexible business hours. Even though Ms. Sandberg’s prescriptions may appear irrelevant to middle-class mothers who cannot afford an army of nannies, her call to action drew attention to a puzzle that affects women outside the set of potential candidates to lead a Fortune 500 company: how did women get stuck? 50 Years after the Equal Pay Act, Parity Eludes Us.

By Annie-Rose Strasser and Bryce Covert "Learning From The Brits: Five Women Who Should Go On America’s Banknotes" What a Sandra Day O'Connor dollar bill might look like On Wednesday, British feminists won what might seem like a small victory: Keeping a woman on their banknotes.

Learning From The Brits: Five Women Who Should Go On America's Banknotes

Earlier this month, the Bank of England announced that it would be retiring the face of Elizabeth Fry, an 1800s British philanthropist, from five pound bills and replacing her with Winston Churchill. By Wednesday, the Bank had relented: While Churchill will still take his spot on the five pound note, Charles Darwin is getting booted from the 10 pound bill in favor of famed female author Jane Austen.

How can we all “have it all”?: Anne-Marie Slaughter at TEDGlobal 2013. Photo: James Duncan Davidson Anne-Marie Slaughter, public policy expert and author of the widely read 2012 article “Why Women Still Can’t Have It All,” closes the first session of TEDGlobal with a talk about how she became a woman she never imagined.

How can we all “have it all”?: Anne-Marie Slaughter at TEDGlobal 2013

In 2010, Slaughter, says, “I had the chance to be considered for promotion from my job as Director of Policy Planning” at the State Department. She knew she was ready for the job, she knew she could handle it. “It was my moment to lean in,” she says frankly. But she had been commuting for two years between Princeton and D.C., leaving her husband and two sons to fend without her during the week. Slaughter still believes that the measure of male-female equality is in how many women are in high-level positions — but that’s only half of real equality.

The Rise of Executive Feminism - Joan C. Williams and Rachel W. Dempsey

Williams and Rachel W. Dempsey | 11:58 AM March 28, 2013 In the aftermath of the publication of Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean In, two things are becoming clear. Mayer, Sandberg, Slaughter: Driving Change, at a Cost - Whitney Johnson and Lisa Joy Rosner. Working women have been calling for more seats in the boardroom, more days of paid maternity leave, more corner offices, more money, and more — well, more! For a long time. So why does it seem like we’ve only now reached a dull roar on these issues — maybe even what some are calling the rise of “executive feminism”? And can we see signals in the noise? « Le langage de la déesse », interview de Marija Gimbutas. Des papas lésés ? Après une séparation, la justice évince-t-elle systématiquement les pères de la garde d’enfant ? C’est ce que dénoncent des mouvements de pères en colère. La réalité est tout autre.

Le week-end du 16-17 février 2013, toutes les caméras de télévisions de France et de Navarre étaient braquées sur un seul homme.

There is tension and animosity, hurt feelings and broken promises. Leaning In While Black. Thanks to concerns about low marriage rates among African Americans, professional black women are bombarded with warnings about careerism and success. James Brown may have left this mortal coil, but one of his most famous pronouncements is as true today as in 1966: “This is a man’s world.”

Only 17 of the world’s 193 countries are led by women; in the United States, women hold just 14 percent of executive officer positions and 18 percent of congressional seats. Numerous researchers have looked into why this glass ceiling persists. Why So Few Women in Silicon Valley? Don't Lean In: Do We Want Mothers to Work Part-Time? A new survey from Pew Research shows mothers and fathers converging in the ways they spend their time, in the ways they want to spend their time — and in what we say we want out of a balanced life. Pew surveyed 2,511 adults nationwide, asking questions about things like what’s important to them in a job, whether they prefer full- or part-time work, and whether it’s difficult to balance work and family. Then Pew researchers analyzed data from the American Time Usage Survey to look at not just how we want to spend our time (or how we say we want to spend our time, which could be quite different), but how we actually spend it.

Pompom Girl for Feminism. A cheat sheet for Sheryl Sandberg’s ‘Lean In’ >>So can you relate to her at all in the book? Sandberg has caught plenty of flak for being a wealthy woman (and we mean really wealthy) trying to talk to others about balancing work and family life. Sheryl Sandberg 'Lean In': Unrealistic Expectations For the Average Working Woman? Lean In is the title of Sheryl Sandberg's book and revolutionary social movement of leading women towards workplace leadership. Slated for a March book release, Sandberg has already embarked on a social media campaign worthy of her own experience as Facebook and Google trailbrazer and female executive.

The book and its subject matter are already raising some eyebrows as superstar Sandberg seeks to offer women advice through offering up her own extraordinary career as a template. The mission of lean in is “to create a global community dedicated to encouraging women to lean in to their ambitions.” The detailed manual that describes how to conduct meetings and small think tanks to achieve this goal goes as far to diagram and index these brain storming sessions amongst small groups of female corporate participants.

A cult of fear is preventing women from taking the steps to scale back at the risk of appearing to be unproductive.

Sheryl Sandberg’s ‘Lean In’ Sheryl Sandberg, ‘Lean In’ Author, Hopes to Spur Movement. Why Women Still Can’t Have It All - Anne-Marie Slaughter. The culture of “time macho”—a relentless competition to work harder, stay later, pull more all-nighters, travel around the world and bill the extra hours that the international date line affords you—remains astonishingly prevalent among professionals today.

Nothing captures the belief that more time equals more value better than the cult of billable hours afflicting large law firms across the country and providing exactly the wrong incentives for employees who hope to integrate work and family. Yet even in industries that don’t explicitly reward sheer quantity of hours spent on the job, the pressure to arrive early, stay late, and be available, always, for in-person meetings at 11 a.m. on Saturdays can be intense. Indeed, by some measures, the problem has gotten worse over time: a study by the Center for American Progress reports that nationwide, the share of all professionals—women and men—working more than 50 hours a week has increased since the late 1970s.
