After #MeToo, Men Begin Avoiding Female Co-Workers
When the Americans with Disabilities Act was passed, employers hired fewer disabled workers, because they feared lawsuits. We may now be seeing a similar trend in the face of more sexual harassment claims. Ryan McMaken (Mises.org/McMaken) is the editor of Mises Wire and The Austrian.

Sex work in Jamaica is taboo. Selling sex - prostitution, is illegal. There have been ongoing lobby from a human rights perspective for the repeal of the 18th century laws that makes prostitution (selling of sex) and buggery illegal. However several men and women practice the illicit trade sometimes covertly, sometimes out in plain sight. Sex workers are rarely arrested for selling sex, however, based on their own admissions, it is a dangerous business. They are sometimes mistreated by their clients but they cannot report abuse to the police. The sex workers in this video claim that they are even abused by the police. Sex workers are among the vulnerable populations in Jamaica and the nature of their work makes them vulnerable to contracting HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases. Because the trade they are involved in is illegal, they have very little recourse available to them to seek redress when they are exploited or otherwise wronged. It sometimes also prevents them from seeking medical attention if they become hurt or ill while plying their trade as they fear retribution and the violation of their trust if they divulge to medical practitioners what they do for a living. This video was developed under a media fellowship awarded to Jamaican journalist, Carol Francis of Jamaica News Network, a cable television subsidiary of Television Jamaica and is based on the publication, "Oral Testimony of Jamaican Sex Workers" which was published by Panos Caribbean in November 2010. The fellowship was administered by Panos Caribbean and funded by Panos' Global AIDS Programme.

Men on wire: Power workers walk in the clouds to repair lines
From the north of Zhejiang Province in eastern China to Fuzhou in the southeastern Fujian Province, there is a large uninhabited area of endless mountains, crisscrossed by ultra-high-voltage (UHV) transmission lines that can weigh more than 270 kilograms. After first entering operation in 2015, the North Zhejiang-Fuzhou UHV AC project underwent its first series of safety checks earlier this month. The power workers need to walk on wires no thicker than bottle caps with only a thin wire on either side to hold on to, with a deep valley directly below their feet. The breathtaking moment that saw them walk in the clouds was captured by CCTV, let’s take a look.

PMLN Workers Misbehave with Women in PMLN Jalsa
SUBSCRIBE US FOR MORE VIDEOS... ...PMLN Workers Misbehave with Women in PMLN Jalsa PATTOKI: A woman present at the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) rally was Misbehave here on Tuesday. The woman, a resident of Kasur, is a member of the PML-N women’s wing. “I came here to support the party, but the treatment by those present here is shameful,” she said. Speaking to the media after the incident, she further said that it does not seem that those who misbehaved were from the ruling party. "Our PML-N brothers are not of this sort." She added that the men pulled at the women's dupattas, used abusive language and assaulted women. The incident occurred when men entered the women enclosure after Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif's speech. Pictures from the rally clearly show men present at the rally misbehaving with the woman. Women in the enclosure made efforts to save the girl and even used sticks to hit the men misbehaving with the girl and afterward managed to escort her out of the enclosure. Maryam Nawaz, in her tweet, asked the chief minister of the province to take notice of the incident as it is "not PML-N ethos". Taking notice of the incident, Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah, said those responsible will be punished under the law and those responsible are being identified through video. Sanaullah assured that a case would be registered for the incident. He, however, said that misbehaving in political rallies started in PTI rallies. Punjab government spokesman also expressed regret at the incident and said that improved measures were taken during the rally for women. The spokesperson also reiterated that those responsible for misbehaving with the woman would be persecuted under the law.

Myanmar/ Women Construction-workers Part 25
Welcome to my travelchannel.On my channel you can find almost 1000 films of more than 70 countries. See the playlist on my youtube channel.Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/user/nurettinodunya/playlists Women Construction-workers: The young mother earns $2.50 a day, but must leave her children with friends in the workers' camp during the day. "I hate the job," They said. "But if I want to put my children in school and give them a better future, I have no choice but to keep on with this seasonal job." While providing a much-welcomed source of revenue for seasonal female workers, the construction sector is reaping the rewards of their cheap labour. "Many subcontractors are happy to hire for the single reason that they are cheaper than men. United we stand Unions in the construction sector are weak because workers constantly move from one site to another and are therefore difficult to organise. Additionally, many workers do not have formal contracts. Unions try to educate their members, but it's not as easy as in the garment sector, where you can easily stop production to have your voice heard. Despite widespread wage discrimination in the construction sector, women on sites have few options to seek recourse since they are unskilled workers with limited job prospects elsewhere; they are temporary staff and they can easily be replaced. Many are not aware that such wage discrimination is illegal. Making money -- even if it is less than men -- is the priority.Globe.com/female

All Posts Share Share « Previous National | Next National » Email Email Print Print 'Supervising Women Workers': Management Techniques From 1944 By Rebecca Greenfield Feb 11 2011, 3:00 PM ET From Coronet Instructional Films, advice on how to handle the influx of women working in factories in the latter years of World War II ... The men are off fighting the Axis leaving the women in charge of industry back home. But male managers don't quite know how to handle female workers. "Women scare me, at least they do in the factory," laments Joe, a factory manager. His boss comforts him, telling him not to worry: "There are thousands of others facing the same problems. We can say that the broad principles involved in the supervision of men apply equally well in the case of women." But Joe disagrees, "That ain't what I learned about women." Fortunately the film is able to take Joe, and us, through various ways men and women act and react differently to situations at work. After learning a few tricks, like avoiding using complicated trade terms, Joe gets the hang of things, coming away with four important lessons: Don't mix pleasure with business Women can be awfully jealous of each other Avoid undue familiarity And, finally, women are more sensitive than men Sounds like good advice for Joe, and the thousands of others facing this same problem -- that is, until all the men return.

For Students: http://l.prageru.com/29SgPaX JOIN our Educators Network! http://l.prageru.com/2c8vsff Script: If, for the same work, women make only 77 cents for every dollar a man makes, why don’t businesses hire only women? Wages are the biggest expense for most businesses. So, hiring only women would reduce costs by nearly a quarter – and that would go right to the bottom line. Don’t businesses want to be profitable? Or, are they just really bad at math? Well, actually, it’s the feminists, celebrities and politicians spreading this wage gap myth who have the math problem. Here’s why: The 77-cents-on-the-dollar statistic is calculated by dividing the median earnings of all women working full-time by the median earnings of all men working full-time. In other words, if the average income of all men is, say, 40,000 dollars a year, and the average annual income of all women is, say, 30,800 dollars, that would mean that women earn 77 cents for every dollar a man earns. 30,800 divided by 40,000 equals .77. But these calculations don’t reveal a gender wage injustice because it doesn’t take into account occupation, position, education or hours worked per week. Even a study by the American Association of University Women, a feminist organization, shows that the actual wage gap shrinks to only 6.6 cents when you factor in different choices men and women make. And the key word here is “choice.” The small wage gap that does exist has nothing to do with paying women less, let alone with sexism; it has to do with differences in individual career choices that men and women make. In 2009, the U.S. Department of Labor released a paper that examined more than 50 peer-reviewed studies and concluded that the oft-cited 23 percent wage gap “may be almost entirely the result of individual choices being made by both male and female workers.” Well, let’s look at some of those choices. Georgetown University compiled a list of the five best-paying college majors, and the percentage of men or women majoring in those fields: Number 1 best-paying major: Petroleum Engineering: 87% male Number 2: Pharmaceutical Sciences: 48% male 3: Mathematics and Computer Science: 67% male 4: Aerospace Engineering: 88% male 5: Chemical Engineering: 72% male Notice that women out-represent men in only one of the five top-paying majors – by only a few percentage points. Now consider the same study’s list of the five worst paying college majors: Number 1: Counseling and Psychology: 74% female Number 2: Early Childhood Education: 97% female 3: Theology and Religious Vocations: 66% male 4: Human Services and Community Organization: 81% female 5: Social Work: 88% female Here, it’s the women who lead in all but one category. Even within the same profession, men and women make different career choices that impact how much money they make. Take nursing, where male nurses on the whole earn 18% more than female nurses. The reason? Male nurses gravitate to the best-paying nursing specialties, they work longer hours, and disproportionately find jobs in cities with the highest compensation.

Male Writers React To Mean Comments Their Female Co-Workers Get Online [LABS]
Today, March 8, is International Women’s Day, established to recognize female accomplishments and call attention to aspects of history that might be overlooked when we reflect through the more standard male lens. It’s also a time to address the continued existence of gender inequality and dissect pressures and trends in the male-female dynamic. One trend particularly noticeable when you work at a website is the type of comments people leave under articles based on if the writer is a man or woman. It’s not so shocking for female writers to scroll underneath their posts and see vulgar, violent or personal attacks. Almost all of the women I work with who have written for Elite Daily have been called names or threatened, even on the more innocuous posts (someone called me a "c*nt" for a post I wrote about Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris). For guys, it's not as common to see things like this underneath their author bylines. Obviously, they get some mean comments too -- but we've noticed that those tend to focus more on the content than the individual. So, we gave the men we work with a chance to see from their female peers' perspective. Their reactions say it all about what you can expect when you put yourself out there online as a man versus as a woman.

TESCO Women supermarket workers demand equal pay with male warehouse workers
Tesco is facing Britain's largest ever equal pay claim and a possible bill running to £4bn. Thousands of women who work in Tesco stores could receive back pay totalling £20,000 if the legal challenge demanding parity with men who work in the company's warehouses is successful. Lawyers say hourly-paid female store staff earn less than men even though the value of the work is comparable. Tesco said it worked hard to ensure all staff were paid "fairly and equally". Up to 200,000 supermarket workers could be affected, the majority of them women. Initial claims have been lodged with the conciliation service, ACAS - the first stage in what is likely to be a lengthy legal process through the employment tribunal system which could last several years. If even a small proportion of the women are successful, the bill for Tesco would be significant. Read more here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-42968342

Sex Workers Helping Some Disabled Women & Men
Some disabled people never get the chance to have sexual connections, and the people who are looking after them, be it family or community have forgot that some Women & Men do have sexual needs with many forms of being disabled. Do you know of disabled and dating websites for people with many types of disabilities. Do you know of Brothels, that cater the sexual needs of a person who is disabled? How many times have you heard a story of a family member or community worker taking a person who has bad forms of disabilitys to see a sex worker? I have never been to a bar with 300 people in wheel chairs of many forms and makes trying to pick up, I have never been to a bar with 60 hospital beds inside of people who are trying to pick up or hook up and I am sure many of you have never entertained this in your mind either. I am sure when some of you have gone out on a dating hunt or being chatted up... you never think, Hay I hope they have people in hospital beds at this bar tonight, with breathing tubes, feeding stomic tubes and Huggies Little Movers Slip-On Diapers Mega. This is a touchy subject but so many people have special needs, some with small or large issues. I am not even sure if the disabled with high special needs get upset of being cheated on.

Syrian women 'sexually exploited' by aid workers - BBC News
The BBC has learned that women are being sexually exploited by local men delivering aid on behalf of the United Nations and international charities inside Syria. Humanitarian workers told the BBC that so-called "local councils" in areas such as Dar'a and Queneitra would offer women extra bags of grain and lifts home in return for sex, or they would refuse to give any food at all. The UN said it was aware of the allegations and had taken action to improve protection against exploitation.

“Supervising Women Workers” was a short World War II-era social guidance film produced by the US Office of Education and aimed at male foremen who now had to supervise women for war work. “Women scare me,” a foreman tells his boss at mark 01:30, helping set the tone. The film depicts the social and gender relations and attitudes of its time. It notes that most of the women had never been in industry before (mark 01:48), and were unfamiliar with the terminology and mores common to the plant. Each thing had to be broken down and explained in detail (mark 03:00). The film also reminds men that women of the day have been at work in things like knitting and sewing, and that these skills could be appropriated for war work. In a short vignette starting at mark 04:20, the foreman returns home to his wife, complaining about all the women asking for time off. His wife then tells him she had to cook, clean, and take care of the children all day, at which point the foreman realizes that women really work two jobs, one in the factory and the other at home. At mark 06:30, we learn that there are four basic rules to supervising women workers: don't mix business with pleasure; remember that women are awfully jealous of each other; avoid undue familiarity; and remember that women are more sensitive than men. In another vignette at mark 07:40, a foremen gets into an argument about a woman not wearing a protective hat, and it is shown that he has to explain to her why the protective cap was necessary. “To all the rules of supervising women add just one more,” the foreman is told at mark 10:15. “Act quickly. Never let a situation get underway.” We encourage viewers to add comments and, especially, to provide additional information about our videos by adding a comment! See something interesting?

Women Store Workers Speak Out! - "We Deserve The Same Pay Rate (as Men Who Do a Different Job!)"
The UK's second largest retailer is facing a mass legal action by women who work in their stores. The women claim they are not paid the same as male workers in the distribution warehouses - despite their jobs being of "equivalent value". The case will test how retailers decide what they pay their staff in different parts of their business. And if the women are successful it could have serious ramifications for the whole sector. The legal action, believed to be the largest of its kind in the private sector, could lead to some very high payouts. More than 10,000 Asda staff have expressed an interest in joining the case, and more than 1,000 employment tribunal claims have already been lodged. Asda has signalled it will fight the claims vigorously and says it does not discriminate. Lauren Loughheed, who is leading the case, said that the pay difference between female shop and male warehouse workers could be as much as £4 an hour. That's a big difference when you are earning £7 an hour. And, if the cases are successful, women workers could be compensated for six years of back pay.

40 more Bangladeshi women workers return from Saudi Arabia
After facing enormous physical and psychological torture and irregularities over wages, 40 more Bangladeshi women workers returned from Saudi Arabia on Sunday empty-handed. Depressed and shocked, the women who used to work as housemaids there landed at Dhaka’s Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport around 8:45pm where officials from NGO Brac received them. Almost all of the returnees claimed that they had left Saudi Arabia after suffering inhumane torture at the hands of their employers while many of them mentioned payment-related irregularities as an added bonus to their misery. Many of these women had escaped from their employers’ houses without passport and returned to Bangladesh with support from the Bangladesh Embassy in Saudi Arabia. Priti Begum of Manikganj, who went to Saudi Arabia with a local broker’s assistance, said she worked at the home of a wealthy Saudi man who used to beat her even over minor reasons. “The workload in that house was huge and I had to take care of at least 16 people. I could not even get enough sleep. They did not care even if I was sick. There were no medical facilities for workers like me,” she told the Dhaka Tribune at the airport.

Why are going men to sex workers?
Every woman like to know! There is a TED talk about that… If you think that sex is the most important thing to go to a sex worker you are dam wrong! The boys are growing up in the belief: Boys should not cry. Boys should be independent. Boys should not be weak, should be strong always. Boys should be over cool and not showing feelings… A man who can’t cry use bullets! A man who cannot share intimacy is always lonely. A man who can’t speak openly over his feelings in situations is a candidate for suicide… (males make 4 times more suicide than females) A man who has no compassion becomes a drug addicted or a violent person! Still, many parents have not found out that boys have feelings and problems like girl … A girl gets 4 times more hugs than a boy!!!! Why? And today we have so much violence because of the parents, who have not given enough love to their sons. All we need is love this also includes males!!!! For what are then sex workers? Average sex intercourse needs 5 minutes… Why are men booking hours if they can afford that, to be together with a sex worker? A man wants to show how he is, and this is for many men only possible through sex. And if they have slept with a woman, the ice is broken, and they can share their feelings. The opposite is valid for a woman, she wants first the intimacy to have sex with a man. The men are going to a sex worker: To share their feelings. To speak about their problems. To get intimacy. To build up a rapport. To feel worthy. To connect with a human being. To be as they are without hiding… without to be somebody… To get accepted and not rejected. Fear of rejection. Relationship problems. No Sex or too less sex with their spouse. To have easy sex. And women think if a male is shy or afraid of rejection, this guy is not worthy! So what, women have the same problem to connect with an unknown person like most of the males. Still, they think that shy men are not worthy, even they are not better… That is good for the sex workers! The females are missing out for the best spouses,… I know so many good guys that can’t find a girlfriend because of their wrong or missing seduction techniques… And the same is true for women… Should we wait for the next 1000 years until the females can go for the best spouse instead to wait and nothing is happening?

Epic RANT on Gender "Equality" - Jordan Peterson on why there are so few women at the top
Jordan Peterson on gender equality, the different choices men & women make, and the reasons so few women are in positions of power. Most people get the "equity" or "gender parity" part precisely backwards, asking why there are so few women at the top, when in fact the real question is why are there any people at all crazy enough to accept the burdens of being in those top positions.

The best place to be a woman? | The Economist
In the battle for gender equality Iceland is leading the world. The tiny island is pioneering news ways to close the gender pay gap, root out stereotypes and get more mothers back to work. Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: https://econ.st/2xvTKdy Supported by Mishcon de Reya Today women around the globe have less access to power wealth and education than men - but one tiny island is leading the world in bridging these gaps. Iceland is pioneering ways to get more mothers back to work, to root out gender stereotypes, and to close the pay gap. Could Iceland inspire the world to solve one of its greatest problems? Iceland has topped gender equality rankings for nearly a decade. One of the secrets to their success? Start early. This kindergarten in the capital Reykjavik focuses on challenging extreme gender stereotypes before they take root in boys and girls. It's a mission that's led to the creation of 17 schools across this tiny country - all focused on developing a healthy balance of characteristics in both sexes. Girls and boys are separated to allow girls to nurture traits traditionally viewed as masculine, like being bold, independent, and taking risks. And boys are given time to learn traits traditionally viewed as feminine, like being more group oriented, empathetic, and caring - and the signs are that this is working. Research suggests that in later years children from this school have a greater understanding of gender equality when compared to children from other schools. Iceland is also promoting gender equality by encouraging fathers to share the childcare burden with mothers. In 2000, it introduced what is known as a daddy quota - three month statutory paternity leave. It's an allowance that goes much further than most other countries in the world. Here over 70% of fathers take up the full three months leave. Why? Because the state covers 80% of a salary during this period up to a cap of $4,600 a month. One beneficiary of this generous system is Egill Bjarnson who is looking after his son Valer. Egill believes the high cost of the daddy quota to taxpayers is justified because it helps get more women into work. But even in Iceland men are still paid nearly 6% more than women for similar work. This year Iceland became the first country in the world to pass legislation not just to expose but to tackle the gender pay gap. Companies with over 25 employees like Reykjavik Energy now have to prove they are paying men and women equally for similar jobs. Every job at the company must be measured against a set of criteria - this produces a score. For jobs with the same score workers must be paid the same. When Reykjavik Energy used this pay calculator the inequalities came into sharp and immediate focus. The company rectified this by raising the wages of its female employees. Critics of the law point out there will be significant financial consequences for companies as they rectify their pay inequalities - but many argue this is a necessary price to pay. Gender equality will be an ever more pressing challenge for wealthy countries across the world. Could the ambitious measures being tested in Iceland provide practical solutions? What are the forces shaping how people live and work and how power is wielded in the modern age? NOW AND NEXT reveals the pressures, the plans and the likely tipping points for enduring global change. Understand what is really transforming the world today – and discover what may lie in store tomorrow.
