The 23% hacker girls ...

I'm traveling around at the moment. Today I was at a hacker space in a nice big town at the coast. I met a girl hacker team. They only hack bank accounts of male managers and steal 23% of the money. As you all know 23% is the unadjusted gender pay gap. Now they build up a center with this money, where the managers could win their money back. They have to do a challenge there against women to show that they are 23% better. If they are better than 23% they will get all their money back. If not they will only get the percentage they're better as the women. The money that stays over goes into sex changes for poor women, who need a better salary.

Since 2005, little #girls can decide: Do I become a #hairdresser — or #chancellor?
This Sunday, the sole ruler of Germany (Merkel) is confirmed in a so called democratic #election so that she can continue to govern.

In many cases, the outside developers and graphic designers they enlisted to help often took a condescending tone over #email. These collaborators, who were almost always male, were often short, slow to respond, and vaguely disrespectful in correspondence. In response to one request, a developer started an email with the words “Okay, girls…”

These Women Entrepreneurs Created A Fake Male Cofounder To Dodge Startup Sexism

Penelope Gazin and Kate Dwyer faced a lot of sexism and condescension when they launched their e-commerce marketplace for weird art–that is until they introduced an imaginary cofounder named Keith.

“Throughout my childhood, I have been harassed and bullied, and I always wondered ‘why do we have to accept this violence, just because we are women?’,” she said in an interview with The Jordan Times on Monday.

To those accusing her of encouraging violence, Khalifeh responded: “You are lying if you say there is no violence in #society; there is and always will be. So, when you encounter violence, you should be able to defend yourself.”

Apocalypse then: The lessons of #violence and inequality through the ages

source: http://www.economist.com/news/books-and-arts/21717801-only-catastrophe-truly-reduces-inequality-according-historical-survey-lessons
Only four things, Mr #Scheidel argues, cause large-scale levelling. #Epidemics and #pandemics can do it, as the Black Death did when it changed the relative values of land and #labour in late medieval #Europe. So can the complete #collapse of whole states and economic systems, as at the end of the Tang dynasty in China and the disintegration of the western Roman #Empire. When everyone is pauperised, the rich lose most. Total #revolution, of the Russian or Chinese sort, fits the bill. So does the 20th-century sibling of such revolutions: the war of mass-mobilisation.

The women on Twitch don’t see themselves as pornographers or #sex workers – far from it – but that doesn’t mean there aren’t #audience members who feel they are owed more than witty banter and good gameplay, particularly if they are handing over cash.

“The way some people treat you because you’re a woman on the internet is disgusting,” Kat says. “They think they can just give you money

A little girl face down the Wall Street Bull


“Even though it’s a little girl, her stance is one of determination, forwardness, and being willing to challenge and take on the status quo.” - Lori Heinel

As many American women prepare to draw attention to their role in the workplace, a Wall Street firm on Tuesday put up a statue of a girl in front of Lower Manhattan's well-known bronze charging bull, as if to fearlessly stare it down.

Placing the diminutive, grade school-aged girl in front of the massive bull on the eve of International Women's Day was a way of calling attention to the lack of gender diversity on corporate boards and the pay gap of women working in financial services, a spokeswoman for State Street Global Advisors said.

After the first couple of weeks of training, I chose to join the team that worked on my area of expertise, and this is where things started getting weird. On my first official day rotating on the team, my new manager sent me a string of messages over #company chat. He was in an open relationship, he said, and his girlfriend was having an easy time finding new partners but he wasn't. He was trying to stay out of trouble at work, he said, but he couldn't help getting in trouble, because he was looking for #women to have #sex with. It was clear that he was trying to g

If #slavery is forbidden, why are there more slaves than in the 18th century?

When the United States colonized the Philippines more than a century ago, the Navy began hiring Filipino seamen to clean rooms and serve meals to officers. Even after the #Philippines gained independence, the Navy continued recruiting there, making Filipinos the only foreign nationals outside the United States who were enlisted in our military. By 1970, more Filipinos were working in the U.S. #Navy than in the Philippine Navy. Almost all, though, worked as mess boys and stewards, at the bottom rung of the career ladder.

Filipinos make up nearly a third of all cruise ship workers. It’s a good job. Until it isn’t.
