Anti-patriarchy

  • "Patriarchy has always had room for the Exceptional Woman—the one woman smart enough, sweet enough, strong enough, soft enough, pure enough, sexy enough to satisfy all of our culture's contradictory demands on women, and thus make it to the top of a sexist system on merit alone. Patriarchy needs that woman. She provides men with an excuse to blame women for their own pain and struggles while simultaneously assuring women that sexism only needs to be outwitted to be overcome. " http://www.elle.com/culture/career-politics/a41444/ivanka-trump-distraction/

Anti-capitalism

gendered, hierarchical division between “production” and “reproduction” is a defining structure of capitalist society 
and a deep source of the gender asymmetries hard-wired in it. 
There can be no “emancipation of women” so long as this structure remains intact.
feminist ideas are being twisted to serve neoliberal, capitalist ends. 
The solutions for women will not be found in parity in a trade economy. 
The answer is not that women should be paid, it’s that men should not.
International network for recognition & payment for all caring work, 
and the return of military spending to the community starting with women the main carers everywhere.

Gender Gap in Engineering

Women in tech are the canary in the coal mine. Normally when the canary in the coal mine starts dying 
you know the environment is toxic and you should get the hell out. Instead, the tech industry is looking at the canary, 
wondering why it can't breathe, saying “Lean in, canary. Lean in!” 
When one canary dies they get a new one because getting more canaries is how you fix the lack of canaries, right? 
Except the problem is that there isn't enough oxygen in the coal mine, not that there are too few canaries.

It is time to focus the work on holding the men in charge accountable 
- not just trying to do things to “help women”.

Coding

CODE documentary exposes the dearth of American female and minority software engineers 
and explores the reasons for this gender gap.  CODE raises the question: 
what would society gain from having more women and minorities code?
