The housewife stereotype has long since shattered - it's all about leaning in, breaking the glass ceiling, closing the wage gap and more.
Before it was Fashionable
You know, about thirty years ago, my Mom worked for the City of Philadelphia as a Tax Assessor. She was good at it too. Which, at the time was a pretty good job for a single Mom of two. She told me she took a test to get a better position, because she wanted to make sure her babies had a balance meal every night after she and my Father split. My Mom says, she remembers making sure we had meat, a green vegetable, a starch and some pudding or Jell-O for dessert. Some times we ate hot dogs and bake beans a lot, but we didn’t care we like hot dogs and bake beans. Mom said, but she cared and so she knew she had to do something about that.
Sorting through book donations is my favorite part of the job. I can get completely lost in a box of books. That’s why I wait till the quieter afternoons at the thrift store, when one of the other volunteers is out front, to pull out a box and go through it one volume at a time.
Promote a Small Business
The date of this writing is March 1, 2021. I have been an Avon fan since the 90's. I am a registered independent sales representative. I have my own Avon website established. I am my only customer at this time because I rejoined the company right before the time that Corona Virus came upon our world, so I've put this endeavor on the backburner as I await a safer, healthier, and more lucrative opportunity to boost my business. I have much to say about the Avon (the company for women) and why I'm such a loyal fan of the company. I will begin by sharing a brief history of the business and my own history with them.
2 minutes of Redirection
Covid- 19 had me bent all-the-way out of shape. I got laid off the job I always loved to complain about pretty early on, and now had the time to do whatever I so pleased. A small percentage of the laziest part of me was ecstatic for the time off but simultaneously I was weirdly worried to death that I would have nothing to show for all this free time I had spent many years wishing for.
Transformative Trajectory - Possible new horizon for women in the music industry.
There are many societal viewpoints, processes and systemic structures that mean it is not easy for women to own their sovereignty in music. For women to get to this point it is important to ask the question “ What would need to be true, to allow this to be?”
Ayn Rand: The Unknown Ideal Woman
Two morally perfect men came out of the mind of Ayn Rand. From her two most popular novels, The Fountainhead (1943) and Atlas Shrugged (1957), Howard Roark and John Galt, respectively, exemplify the grandeur of what it means to be an absolutely ethical person. Their genius may surpass the common man, but everyone can relate to their ironclad virtues. All of which Miss Rand made possible.
Top Black Women Business Owners - The Privileged Few - 11 Qualifying Characteristics
Top Black women business owners...they are the few, the fortunate, and the lucky. They are the chosen ones fed with a silver spoon. We all know it is hard out there. The white man's conspiracy to keep us down. Becoming a top black women business owner is equivalent to climbing Mt. Everest. How many minorities do you know that has even thought about climbing a hill not to mention a mountain, the closest we come to a mountain are the rocks in the parking lots.
Struggles Which Women Entrepreneurs Face In India
In my opinion, entrepreneurship is the best and ideal way to prove ourselves in this competitive market. In India people considering women a marriage material rather than an individual person.
We Need More Diversity in the Room Where It Happens
We all saw it, even though it’s since been taken down. The “greatest of all time” image posted by ESPN’s SportsCenter represents how decisions made by the powers that be are so often done using only their own perspective.
Rebecca Crumpler the first African American female doctor
I am enjoying this challenge of writing about black femle innovators because I am learning a lot as I research. Today I share with the readers the amzing story of Rebecca Davis, Lee, Crumpler MD. She is an African American woman who dealt with the same issues of other black female innovators of her day which were racism and sexism. As with the other unsung heroes whose stories I have shared, Dr, Crumpler persevered through adversity and promoted diversity and this is why I admire her.
Mikaila Ulmer's Story
When I saw this challenge, I was super excited because I love the idea of celebrating women of color and providing information about the success stories over the years. When searching for one in particular I wanted to find one that was more modern. Don’t get me wrong, you should learn historical figures and that is always important, but I feel that is everyone’s “go to” when you go through Black History Month. Well, no offense, but you don’t have to go that far back to learn about successful, innovative black women! In fact, in my search I found tons of articles with hundreds of women that are successful with businesses right here, right now in 2021. They should be celebrated and talked about because guess what? You could be supportive of their business endeavors versus just talking about the invention created 50 years ago etc.
Judy Reed the first black woman to receive a US patent
You probably never heard of Judy Reed but she left a mark on society as the first African American female on record to ever receive a US patent. American society loves to announce when someone has been the first in a category. Specifically, since Joe Biden has become president we have been introduced to members of his cabinet who are the first African American, black woman, Native American, Hindu, Catholic, and LBGT to hold their respective offices. Their names will go down in history just like Judy Reed, although there actually is not much that is known about this black female innovator.
