Where are all the mediocre women?

April 23, 2015 // 6 Comments

I feel like I’m lucky enough to be living in a renaissance for women in the workplace. Now there are millions of books, forums, active networking opportunities, dedicated to progressing women in various workplaces [notably some workplaces being more progressed than others….*erghm* every closed shop medical profession]. It’s awesome and I do [...]

There’s only one question: What would Sheryl do?

May 29, 2013 // 0 Comments

Recently I read Sheryl Sandberg’s, ‘Lean  In’ [Note it was completely intentional to link through to the Amazon link to this book so that you can purchase it IMMEDIATELY]. For those who are as thin as paper after living their entire life under a gigantic rock, because they don’t know who Sheryl Sandberg is, she is the current COO/CFO of [...]

“What should I wear?” Working out women’s workwear

May 24, 2013 // 0 Comments

I’m finding this whole professional attire thing extremely vexing. It’s not the whole ditsy “hmmm (twirling hair) whatever should I wear this morning” question that I find annoying, it’s more the fact that the choices I have which are traditionally considered “professional attire” are either uncomfortable, practically useless and/or [...]

A gathering of only women together is not meant to threaten the patriachy

May 17, 2013 // 0 Comments

I’ve noticed that when there’s a group of professional women, standing together, talking, any male who approaches the group has to make some comment that the group must be talking about ‘secret women’s stuff’ and so then they take every precaution to avoid any eye-contact or conversation beyond their lame remark. It’s as if when they [...]

An award worth theory about the male species

April 16, 2012 // 0 Comments

Feminism in any shape or form of theory has always existed but I do feel like in the last year, its prominence has expanded 10 fold. Maybe it was the 2012 Australian politics year which was riddled with so many attempts by politicians to be perceived as being more feminist and pro-women, that I felt like I was well positioned to ask both parties [...]

I have a confession…I just cried at work

February 12, 2012 // 0 Comments

I’m eating a can of beetroot for lunch today and I’m happy to admit that I have been truly impressed by said can of beetroot. Its such an underestimated vegetable that it makes me even doubt its a vegetable because it tastes so good! It has such a nice colour too…both the beetroot and the light purple splashes on my top from spilling [...]

Preganant women make me want to hurl

January 24, 2012 // 0 Comments

Minor incident in the bathroom which was disappointingly not poo related. Was in the cubicle doing my business – which includes not only bodily fluid excretion but also concurrent playing of Fruit Ninja on my iPhone – and the sensor lights went off because I had been sitting on the toilet for too long playing Fruit Ninja! Apparently my [...]
