Ladies Nashville hosts interest meeting
Ladies America
Ladies America founder Lindsey Mask recently joined women of Nashville, Tennessee, for a Ladies Nashville interest meeting.



Feedback from one attendee:

"Ladies Nashville,
I am excited about joining such a wonderful group of determined women. So many people quit right before they break through. You ladies stuck it out together. That is a true testament to the power of love, determination and sisterhood. You have inspired me by simply being you. Sojourner Truth once said, "If the first woman God ever made was strong enough to turn this world upside down all alone, these women together ought to be able to turn it back, and get it right side up again!" Ladies Nashville is potentially a physical manifestation of Truth's theory 164 years later. Things come full circle. 'Women helping women' to learn, to grow and to inspire. There are great things on the horizon."

You can start a business — here's how
The Telegraph
It's no surprise that while we wait for the enduringly male-dominated workplace to wake up to the fact that this system's broken and needs fixing for the better of society (as in: kids need to see their parents, of both sexes), that more and more women are deciding instead to channel their resourcefulness and experience into doing it for themselves. According to The Startup Donut, the number of women entrepreneurs rose by nearly 10 percent in the past two years (compared to a 3.3 percent increase in men taking the entrepreneurial leap).

Women can't end sexism in the workplace by just showing up
The Guardian
Feminists insist that the more women, people of color and LGBT individuals are visible, the better off — and more egalitarian — the world will be. But is simple representation the best answer to sexism? Women are still scarce in many places of power: there's a dearth of women in Congress, a lack of female experts on the Sunday morning talk shows and a shortage of women CEOs, law partners and bylined reporters.

Is your business making these common Facebook mistakes?
By Anna Wickham
Your business's Facebook page and your personal Facebook page may look similar, but they are a lot more different than you think.

How social norms translate to workplace gender differences
The Boston Globe
There are a lot of misconceptions about how women act at work. But wouldn't it be nice if we lived in a world where men and women were just looked at as people? In an ideal world, men and women would be treated merely on their credentials and experiences, not on their gender, says Virginia Schein, management and psychology professor at Gettusburg College.
