Amélie Mauresmo sets the record straight
Guest of the program C à vous on May 16 to discuss (among other things) her first Roland Garros as tournament director, Amélie Mauresmo does not mince her words: “we are still saying to ourselves” for the first time it is a woman “. It’s a little unfortunate. So I am waiting for the day when we will go beyond all that, when we will no longer talk about gender and we will talk about skills, abilities”. (at 1’14 of the video)
“I have a very strong bond with #RolandGarros. When I was offered to take over from Guy Forget, I didn’t hesitate! But it’s a shame that people still talk about my gender today, less of my skills.”@AmeMauresmo, director of the Roland-Garros tournament, in #CàVous pic.twitter.com/fQkqjzTUeb

A Woman and lesbian, the double penalty
For fear of being labeled as a “service lesbian”, lesbians and bisexuals prefer to hide their homosexuality at work. According to the “Visibility or invisibility of lesbians at work – VOILAT” survey, conducted by L’Autre Cercle x Ifop, only a third of them allow themselves to talk about it to all their managers. On the other hand, they are 8 out of 10 to have raised the subject with at least one person in their box. They thus avoid lesbophobic remarks visibly legion. 34% of lesbians or bisexuals have left their jobs due to discrimination.
Mixity: men believe that we do too much on the subject
A third British executives interviewed by the Chartered Management Institute believe that companies are making too much of an effort to promote gender equality at work. Conversely, 47% of women think that these efforts are insufficient. Worse, two-thirds of male managers believe their organization can successfully manage future challenges without gender-balanced leadership. In the same proportion, women managers think exactly the opposite.
Ordinary (and distressing) sexism in general assembly
“Ms. Blanc is not the right man” to run Aviva! Another calling him “to wear pants”! These are the kind of sexist remarks to which Amanda Blanc, the big boss of Aviva had to cash in during the last general meeting of the group she leads. In a scathing post, she assures that misogyny in the business world worsens with positions of responsibility. And to think that Aviva’s CA has 40% women.
Wages: women still less increased than men despite their demands
Laws on professional equality, the equality index, commitment charters, good intentions… are not enough to reverse the trend. Women still get less of a raise than men despite their demands. The proof with the figures published by cabinet Robert Walters: “If women are as numerous as men, or even more, to wish to ask for a raise or to have already done so (respectively 54% and 45%), only 50% have obtained the requested increase, compared to 72% of men. 30% of them obtained an increase less than that requested, against only 10% of men”.
To read: Reality TV, the business of sexism
Sure that at least once in your life, you have squinted on an episode of the Marseillais in Cancun (or elsewhere, because they travel the buggers) and that you have been appalled by the image of women returned by this type of program of reality show. And you are not the only ones. The feminist essayist Valérie Rey-Robert also to the point of making a book of it, “Télé-réalité: la Fabrique du sexisme” (Les Insolentes) where she sifts through the misogynistic springs that plague the reality TV programs of which she loves.
Postmenopausal women discriminated against at work
Not (or badly informed) about menopause, symptoms prone to jokes from their colleagues… menopause weighs on the professional life of women according to a study by The Fawcett Society relayed by Elle.fr
An inclusive podcast
In Unédic’s series of podcasts “Point de suspension(s)”, we (re)listen to the expertise of Nicolas Jacquemet, professor of economics at the University Parsi 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne and at the School of economy of Paris, on the cognitive biases that hinder women’s careers.
Only one woman in the photo, so no photo
She had warned that if she was the only woman invited to debate or to pose for a photo, she would skip her turn. Last May 10 during the Madrid Leaders Forum, Nadia Calviño, the Spanish Minister of Economy, therefore refused to take the break with an audience of men. Objective ? Encourage more parity.
