Here are a few things from around the web that may interest you:

Why women are worried about #MeToo

“Why you should treat your relationship like being in a band”

Women’s work around the world – in pictures

And, yeah, that’s about it today because it’s my last day of our family vacation (which maybe you’ve been following on Instagram?) and I’m going to go play miniature golf and watch my kids jump on gigantic trampolines now. Bye! Feel free to add some more links in the comments if you want!

Thank you to those who submitted links for me to include. If you see something around the web you think DW readers would appreciate, please send me a link to [email protected] and, if it’s a fit, I’ll include it in Friday’s round-up. Thanks!

Follow along on Facebook, and Instagram.

    Ugh, I had to stop reading the Me Too article when I got to the woman who was “concerned about the current climate” because her dad got his widdle feewings hurt when he called a female co-worker “dear” and she asked him not to call her “dear” again. Guess what, it doesn’t matter if your dad “didn’t mean anything by it.” It’s condescending and inappropriate, and the co-worker was totally in the right not to ask him to stop. That’s not a “climate” to be “concerned” about. That’s just asking for a basic level of respect and professionalism in the workplace.

      *in the right TO ask him to stop (not “not to”)

        Eh, to me you only just proved the author’s point. I’ve been called DEAR by older female colleagues in pretty much ALL my professions. It’s more about the era those people than sexism. But an entire generation is too fucking db to see that…

        Really, Mark? I scoff at the fact that one man’s embarrassment at a perfectly reasonable request not to call his female subordinates “dear” is being held up as an example of why people are worried about the Me Too movement going too far, and you think that’s proving the point that the Me Too movement has gone too far? Unbelievable.

    I was really excited to read the #MeToo article because I also (despite feeling very positively about the movement) have some concerns, but as a social scientist I found that survey and the response options really poorly worded! Good food for thought though. 🙂
