Sexual Harassment: It's All About Power (Duh).

Two pieces that summarize this painfully obvious argument.

Today I want to write about power, and how the very imbalance of power at work between genders is what's at the core of the sexual harassment stories coming out. At PowerToFly (plug!) we've been trying to fix that imbalance for over three years. Perhaps our jobs will get easier now that people are waking up to how inequality rots out our institutions and drives away women's voices.

Two pieces I read yesterday, one from Rebecca Traister and another from my friend Katherine Goldstein, clarify this argument really well. Katherine's piece also shares how we can create workplaces that truly support women. I urge you to read it all.

This Moment Isn’t (Just) About Sex. It’s Really About Work - Rebecca Traister

..."that this is not, at its heart, about sex at all — or at least not wholly. What it's really about is work, and women's equality in the workplace, and more broadly, about the rot at the core of our power structures that makes it harder for women to do work because the whole thing is tipped toward men."

The News Industry Has a Sexual Harassment Problem. #NowWhat? - Katharine Goldstein

niemanreports.org

"The issue facing journalism is not simply about preventing sexual harassment; it's about also acknowledging that this behavior is often a part of a sexist and unequal work environment. Newsroom cultures need to change in ways that both stop sexual harassment and foster supportive work environments for women."

Why Capco’s Maleni Palacios Believes in Building Communities at Work

As a kid, Maleni Palacios had a long list of questions that no one could answer for her.

“I started asking myself, ‘Why are some countries rich? Why are some of them “poor”? What is this notion of a country and a nation-state? Why do people have different lines of work? Who chooses that for them?’” remembers the associate consultant.
