Sexism in the Media

I was just sent an amazing YouTube Video produced by the Womens Media Center , an organization I am proud to support and I encourage you all to do the same. The purpose is to highlight the unbelieveable sexist comments made over the past few months regarding Hilary Clinton. Whether or not you like or supported Hilary, this video is worth a view. This is just not right. Chris Matthews get’s my award as the guy I would most like to see pelted with rotten tomatoes . I am not sure he is married, but if he is, someone tell his wife to watch this video.

“If you can figure out your suitcase, you can figure out your life.”

Today’s FT contained two great articles that are worth a read. The first is an interview with Diane von Furstenberg from which I pulled the quote above. I like her clothing and I like the woman behind them. Her company has a ‘female empowerment agenda’ and so does this BLOG! He confidently defines herself as “a woman, a mother, a designer”, acknowledging the multiple roles she plays and giving them equal ground. Thanks to Vanessa Friedman for this great piece.

Flip the page and you will find another article worth reading on Kavita Ramdas, the head of the Global Fund for Women. Scroll down to find a write-up on Kavita.
