First Reading, vol. 12
- Bustle has compiled a cheat sheet of HRC's most "powerful" quotes on sexism from the new book. One that resonated with me: "It's not easy to be a woman in politics. That's an understatement. It can be excruciating, humiliating. The moment a woman steps forward and says, 'I'm running for office,' it begins: the analysis of her face, her body, her voice, her demeanor; the diminishment of her stature, her ideas, her accomplishments, her integrity. It can be unbelievably cruel."
- Vox also has an article highlighting why Secretary Clinton thinks she lost with white women.
In other national girl-power moves:
- SCOTUS Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg says there will be enough women on the Supreme Court when all 9 justices are women, via the Chicago Sun Times.
- President Trump has nominated 42 people for US Attorney and only one is a woman, via CNN.
- Singapore names it's first female President after a controversial election.
- Inc. suggests 3 "must haves" for a great mentor.
- Forbes outlines the dos and don'ts of mentoring, which I found more useful than the Inc. article.
- Meanwhile, Facebook is testing a mentorship feature.
- The Ladders also offers 3 career lessons pulled from Time Magazine's new "Firsts" series (previously mentioned in this PG Post).
In the "no surprises here" category:
- People has unearthed a survey that finds more young men travel to find "love" (we'll call it) than their female counterparts who travel for independence.
- I had lunch at Vinaigrette yesterday and despite the departure of the summer burrata salad - it remains a favorite.
- I'm already trolling the internet for the holidays - because I am crazy. I've purchased this wreath for our front door (less than half the price of this slightly larger one from Williams Sonoma) and am contemplating these holiday cards for my professional contacts. I've also purchased one ice cream cone Halloween costume that needs to be returned, as it did not meet toddler expectations.
