THE MATILDA EFFECT: the misappropriating of women’s scientific achievements

in Wikipedia

The Matilda effect is a bias against acknowledging the achievements of those women scientists whose work is attributed to their male colleagues. This effect was first described by suffragist and abolitionist Matilda Joslyn Gage (1826–98) in her essay, “Woman as Inventor” (first published as a tract in 1870 and in the North American Review in 1883). The term “Matilda effect” was coined in 1993 by science historian Margaret W. Rossiter.

The Mental Load Struggle Is Real

by Anja Boynton in Medium

This morning, I woke up early for a work call. I walked out into my living room and was disappointed but unsurprised by what I found.

I made dinner last night. Baked lemon-herb chicken, garlic bread, mesclun salad with fig balsamic dressing, and grilled artichokes. It is my ambition to cook on most nights, but lately, that goal has felt out of reach, just another unchecked box on my ever-expanding to-do list.


Celebrating Jennifer Siebel Newsom and her new film, THE GREAT AMERICAN LIE

“Director Jennifer Siebel Newsom has once again created a documentary that is destined to become an instant classic that will be talked about and referenced for decades to come. The Great American Lie is a must-see for everyone eager to make sense of the ever widening income gap that is currently threatening the fabric of our democracy. This film, like Jennifer’s earlier films, Miss Representation and The Mask You Live In— is ahead of its time in excavating issues that will soon dominate the zeitgeist. Via powerful storytelling and searing interviews, The Great American Lie is a cinematic tour de force that gets to the core of questions which haunt all Americans.”


The Forest Service, an agency of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), PROPOSED REVISIONS to NATIONAL ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY ACT (NEPA) REGULATIONS

Sent in from Green Corner, the Montford Community Newsletter – Mitch Russell

I don’t usually advocate and try to remain politically neutral in this column, but to shut out our voices in a process isn’t American. There is a potential change in the US Forest Service National Environmental Policy Act, NEPA, that could have catastrophic consequences. The change could include removing public comments and involvement, as well as not utilizing outside scientific analysis. You may comment using any of the methods at the end of this article, but please do so by August 26 @11:59pm

Pisgah National Forest is the closest to Asheville and in its entire range contains roughly 513,000 acres managed by the Forest Service. There is additional acreage managed by other agencies or entities.


Women in Congress get higher scores on environmental issues

By Anika Lanser

A new report from Rachel’s Network, a nonprofit that focuses on women and environmental issues, finds that women legislators are far more likely to vote in favor of legislation that protects or preserves the environment. The research, based on an analysis of the League of Conservation Voters scorecards for members of the U.S. House and Senate from 2006–2018, found that the average LCV score for women senators was 71 compared to 46 for their male counterparts. In the House, women on average scored 70 while men scored 43.


INTRODUCING “THE REPORT”: A Podcast Series from Lawfare

By Susan HennesseyBenjamin Wittes  Friday, July 19, 2019, 9:25 AM

For the past several weeks, a group of us has been working on a project to tell the story of the Mueller Report in an accessible form. The Mueller Report tells a heck of a story, a bunch of incredible stories, actually. But it does so in a form that’s hard for a lot of people to take in. It’s very long. It’s legally dense in spots. It’s marred with redactions. It’s also, shall we say, not optimized for your reading pleasure.


FROM COHABITATION TO COHOUSING: Older baby boomers create living arrangements to suit new needs

The Conversation <us.newsletter@theconversation.com>

One of the major questions of growing older is, “where do I want to live as I age?” For many baby boomers, an important goal is staying independent as long as possible. Many in this generation desire to age in their homes and make their own choices as long as possible.

Living preferences are changing, as are relationship patterns, such as greater numbers of mid- and late-life adults who are single, childless, or live at a distance from adult children. “Senior cohousing communities,” or SCCs, are a form of communal living that integrates common areas and private residences. They promote choice and independence, which are particularly important for the aging baby boom generation.  CLICK HERE TO CONTINUE

 


Sonia Johnson, Equal Rights Activist in 1936

Sonia Ann Johnson, née Harris, was born a fifth-generation Mormon in Malad, Idaho. She graduated from Utah State University, pursuing her M.A. and Ed.D. from Rutgers University after marrying, and through many moves and pregnancies. She taught English at American and foreign universities, working part-time as a teacher while accompanying her husband on overseas jobs. The family returned to the U.S. in 1976, buying a house in Virginia, one of the states that had not ratified the Equal Rights Amendment. Johnson became such an ardent supporter of the ERA that she was excommunicated by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 1979. She exposed the role of the wealthy Mormon Church in sabotaging passage of the ERA. She went on a 37-day hunger strike in the Illinois statehouse in 1982 during the last days of the ERA countdown to symbolize how “women hunger for justice.”


MONEY AND MARRIAGE the Second Time Around

Money really is a defining factor in any relationship, but poses special challenges when you’re contemplating marrying for a second (or third) time.  In a 2012 study of 4,500 couples, fighting about money early on in a relationship was by far the most accurate predictor of divorce, regardless of income, debt or net worth.[1]  Researchers found that no matter how long the relationship had lasted, if there were monetary disagreements early on, there was a good chance that the overall satisfaction with the relationship would be poor.  So, if money plays such an important role in our relationships, what can we do about it?


CULTURAL COLLISIONS 2019

Patriarchy is at its most potent when oppression doesn’t feel like oppression, or when it is packaged in terms of biology, religion or basic social needs like security, comfort, acceptance and success. Heterosexuality offers women all these things as selling points to their consensual subjection.
