Another company supports working parents! A much more limited benefit to what Netflix has established, but superb progress that working Americans have been waiting for!
The company will offer parents who are the primary caregivers 16 weeks of paid leave after the birth or adoption of a child.

What great news that Netflix is taking up the mantel to support new working parents! Let's see America follow suit.
The streaming-video company announced its newest employee benefit on its blog Tuesday.

Is the transgender fight for societal acceptance asking women to neutralize their identity?
There is a collision course between feminists and transgender activists.

Would our cities look any different if more women designed them?
The number of women in UK architecture firms is falling, and many urbanists are worried by the ‘very, very male-dominated’ worlds of planning and construction. So how would cities differ if women designed them?

Pay equity - Women do best in Vermont, where they earn 91% of what men make. In New Jersey, women earn just 80% what men do. Where can I move to earn what my male colleagues earn?

We are proud to announce our partnership with Cornell's Women's Planning Forum in producing the Workplace Dynamics Survey for practicing planners. This short survey asks questions about gender issues in your workplace, exploring topics such as staffing, workplace behavior, and parental leave. All genders are encouraged to participate, and we ask you to share this link with your colleagues!

The survey closes on June 26, 2015.

Being the worrier in the family "may be one of the least movable obstacles to women's equality in the workplace".
So long as women talk about men “helping out,” we have not attained equality. Helping isn’t sharing.

Wow, only 15% of women said they are saving enough for retirement: "The biggest financial threat women face".
Working part time, taking time off, the gender pay gap and other factors take a toll on women's ability to save for retirement.
