Women in society - Quo vadis?
- We are 7.7 billion people on the planet and half of us are women. Yet, when we have a look at the boardrooms, head of states, C-suite executive, high-ranking officials/professionls the vast majority is white male. Why? Mrs. Anca Dragu received a prize during the same ceremony. Although in her acceptance speech she said she is an advocate of women in politics, her political party does not have any woman in the government. Why? How is she is exactly supporting women? What are we exactly doing to make things better?
- Based on the reports from Global Media Monitoring, realised every 5 years from 1995, women are only 1 in 3 represented in print and broadcast and in 2020, only 1 in 3 specialists invited to share about #Covid is a woman. Why
- How are we measuring the unpaid work women do? At a global level, women do 75% of the unpaid work. They allocate b/t 3 to 6 hours/day for this type of work compared to men that allocate b/t 30 min and 2 h. Why? What are we exactly doing to make things better?
- Yentl Syndrome - in the 1983 movie - Yentl, Barbara Streisand is playing the role of Jew woman who disguises herself in a man to get an education. It has become a syndrome in medicine. This describes the phenomenon whereby women are misdiagnosed and poorly treated unless their symptoms or diseases conform to the if men. This can prove fatal. Why did you reach such situation?
- 40% of the women in technology quit their job after 10 careers of career compared to 17% of men. They leave because of workplace conditions, undermining behaviour from managers and because they are repeatedly passed up for promotion and had their projects dismissed. What are we exactly doing to make things better?
