On average, women who work full-time outside the home still bear more of the burden of household labor and management than fully employed men. To confound this inequality, employers are often more likely to assume that women are “distracted” by their personal lives. Case in point: though 75 percent of women report having been asked about marriage and family in job interviews, 40 percent of women feel that they can’t talk about family at…

The term has been getting renewed attention over the last week, after the social impact news site ATTN: released a video showing examples from the media of ‘Mansplaining’. The video makes some valid points – men need to pay attention to, and change, how they’re speaking to women, for sure. There’s no…

The survey recently released by Elephant in the Valley grabbed the headlines quickly with its shocking numbers:
