The research in The Athena Doctrine: How Women (and the Men who think like them) Will Rule the Future confirms feminine values are on the ascendant so please man-up and move mountains so we manage maternity differently and make gender equality a reality.
I'm standing on the cobbled streets of Rome, surrounded by politely pink pastel walls. It's my final stop. I had moved to Dubai shortly after my 2...
I may be so much more conscious of this issue as a single parent, who is self-employed, runs a charity and has raised two kids 'single handedly'. My girls roll their eyes and mime at this line as it is much used, mainly in an aim to get people to see that if I can do it....anyone can, seriously, anyone can do this.
Today (Thursday 10 November) marks the last day of the working year for women throughout the UK - or so it should. From now until the end of 2016, working women are now, on average, providing their services for free - highlighting the 9.4% gap between average pay of full-time male and female employees.
But without confidence, competency will only take you so far. Unfortunately in today's workplace, too many perfectly capable women lack the confidence required to progress in their careers.
My coming-out moments were always slightly strange. I have always felt somewhat embarrassed to have to come out again and again. I grew up in a very open family. My parents taught me to see the person, the human in people being before other things. When I came out to my father, he said 'I don't care what you do in bed, live your life the way you want'. My parents are both wonderful.
Engineering is so much more than this outdated stereotype. Engineering is about designing and delivering systems that facilitate education and healthcare, enhance quality of life, and help to eliminate global poverty. Engineers have been in the driving seat of social change for centuries - from bringing electricity to billions to helping to eradicate life-threatening disease.
I was speaking at a Women's Summit in Cambridge last week and before my contribution I decided to sit in the audience to listen to the morning's proce...
One of the barriers for women entrepreneurs is the lack of women role models. As a woman entrepreneur myself I understand how important it is to surround yourself with inspiring role models and feel that when you find and surround yourself with these positive and inspiring influences that whole new world's and approaches open up to you.
There were countless times in my first few years in music when I felt something we were doing should be done differently, that something wouldn't work, when I had an alternative view or idea. But I assumed other people knew better.
Today, she's still a role model for girls interested in STEM careers, and Ada Lovelace Day is often used to highlight the shortage of women in these professions. Rightly so. Computing's come a long way since then but the rise of women in the workplace, particularly in tech, hasn't kept pace.
Do we pore over male leaders with this same forensic examination? Or are female leaders judged differently due to a combination of conscious and unconscious bias? I think you can already surmise the answer.
Imagine if someone came up to you, at your workplace, while you're sitting at your desk -maybe you're composing an email, putting together a presentation, adding numbers to a spreadsheet - and says, "going for a wank over your sexy body". Yep, it's pretty much an average day online when you work in the lingerie industry.
Millennial women are now more likely to start a business than men. Women really do mean business - sisters are definitely doing it for themselves.
Don't get me wrong, I love Women in Sport Week - I should, I was one of the people who devised the idea. The thing that would make me happiest is when someone in the industry moots the point that isn't it a bit.... err.... old fashioned. Redundant. Quaint. Unnecessary? That would mean our work was done.
Last week a charming young woman with a name tailor-made for comedy nuances picked up her guitar and sung her way to victory in the stage category of our 14th Funny Women Awards.
