The Future Looks Bright For Female Entrepreneurs

There's a Sheryl Sandberg quote that springs to mind every time I attend events to boost female entrepreneurship: "In the future, there will be no female leaders. There will just be leaders." It's a sentiment frequently echoed by the female founders I encounter at our events. They don't see themselves as "female entrepreneurs". "Entrepreneurs" will do.

Specialist services that help BME women survivors of violence are crying out that they're in crisis. Slashes to benefits have been found to hit females hardest. Sure Start centres dealt with £430M of cuts in the first two years of the coalition. On a zero hour contract? Huge wow - you're less likely to be a man.

Do I Hate Sheryl Sandberg?

Zoe Fenn | Posted 22.05.2015 | UK Lifestyle
Zoe Fenn

I nearly choked on my coffee last week when I read an article in the Washington Post entitled "Why I hate Sheryl Sandberg?" How could this be? Isn't she the bible for all smart women my age? Didn't I internalise her mantras? Preach her words to my friends? Quote her stats to my husband? So how could this be?

Was her emotional outburst really so off putting? I mean, we live in a time when you can't really turn on the television without someone on screen crying, but should this be replicated in a professional environment?

So let's return to that young girl in the art gallery for I believe she can, symbolically speaking, help guide us through this tangled maze. Certainly, she provides us with our first important clue, about the many ways that adolescence itself turns so many confident outward- looking girls into anxious and uncertain young women.

The implication is that no matter how spectacular your achievements, if you're missing that X-factor, you're not going to make it as a leader. (This is not good news for women, since that X-factor tends to be determined from a distinctly XY set of precedents.)

Feminism Is Not About Female Behaviour

Victoria Sadler | Posted 26.04.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Victoria Sadler

When oh when will men stop "correcting" women on their feminism? It is not demeaning to women, how they choose to represent themselves. It is demeaning though, and extraordinarily patronising in the most perversely ironic of ways, for a man to appropriate feminism to his side of the argument to "correct" female behaviour.
