Did you know that in 1982 a married woman needed her husbands permission, in writing, to obtain a passport? Fortunately, this changed in 1983.
Read about the progress of Australian women and what we can all do to accelerate #genderequality (Because if we don’t, it will be 2221 until women and girls have the same social, economic and political status as men and boys do)
“Men, if you’re worried that meeting alone with a woman might not look right, please find a better solution. Uncomfortable with one-on-one dinners? Group lunches for everyone.
Don’t want to hold closed-door meetings in your office? Move them to a coffee shop, or just keep your door open. Whatever policy you put in place, apply it to both women and men—and treat everyone respectfully. That’s what being a fair manager looks like.” Respectful, equal, fair behaviour towards women in your workplace means not buying into the #MeToo backlash rhetoric.
I’m optimistic that male leaders are better than that, because the growth and prosperity of their company depends on greater numbers of women from all walks of life being at the leadership table(s). http://ow.ly/uruD30oMBIt
