The housewife stereotype has long since shattered - it's all about leaning in, breaking the glass ceiling, closing the wage gap and more.
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.
Fall in Love with Luvvie: Luvvie Ajayi Jones
When you have people like drama-series creator, and showrunner Shonda Rhimes as a supporter and champion of your work, you’ve done something right.
#MeToo: Bossy Business
The Verbal: January 2021 “Your eyelashes are big today” quips the Leader to the newly appointed female junior analyst in his department.
Film School: how to do all of the work and get none of the credit. I played my hand at getting into the film industry which in itself is a very difficult thing to do, though I would argue that it’s ten times harder to do if you’re a woman who doesn’t act. I did everything the way I was told to; I studied hard and worked hard pitching my ideas and trying to put them into practice. One thing they don’t tell you when you join your first film course is that the sexism starts here. Everything you pitch is deemed ‘too emotional’ due to your woman status, you get graded lower for the same standard of work your male counterparts are submitting and when the men in your group screw around and won’t do their share of the work, the responsibility is on you to get them to do their part.
Ditch the Boss Babe Persona & Life Gets a Whole Lot Easier (and more fun)
For many years I battled through life. I adopted masculine energy and stepped into an ethereal, engorged power stance as I fervently propelled myself forwards. I warred against internal and external resistance, defiantly donning armour as I assertively slayed the myriad obstacles in my path. I pushed through personal boundaries and obsessively chanted ‘feel the fear and do it anyway’. I squashed that fear and indeed I did do it anyway. I made progress, I evolved, grew, ascended… Externally, the houses got bigger, the number of children higher, businesses swelled, the career hierarchy elevated, onwards and upwards I pirouetted. I was definitely dancing my way up. A merry dance in hindsight. A dancing delirium I now reflect.

Gender Biased Studies
Charles Fain Lehman wrote an opinion piece on February 22, 2018, for freebeacon.com about a study that claims it helps explain persistent male and female gaps in hard sciences. The original study can be found at journals.sagepub.com, and I left a link to the article and the original study below. The study focused on the gender gap in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, referred to as STEM. The abstract explains that the underrepresentation of girls and women in STEM fields is a constant concern of policymakers. They used an international database on adolescent achievement to evaluate the differences in the sexes across many countries. The study showed that more girls appear capable of college-level STEM study programs than those enrolled at the college level. This was determined by evaluating adolescent academic performance in Science Math and Reading, compared to the percentage of young women who enroll in the STEM field of college study.
Identifying Gender Barriers
The inclusivity challenge Mechanical Engineering and associated sister disciplines such as manufacturing, materials, and aerospace are often considered machismo, with significant under-representation of women in these fields. The situation has marginally improved in recent years but in most mechanical engineering classes even in the UK, you still see less than twenty percent women. The situation is even bleaker in developing and under-developed countries where strong social barriers exist to the participation of women in such disciplines.
