The Orlando Project
"The Orlando Project is an experiment in the integration of text and technology. It has designed and continues to enhance digital tools to harness the power of computers for critical literary and historical research. The project's constantly expanding and improving storehouse of knowledge about women's lives and writings, the Orlando textbase itself, is rendered uniquely searchable and sortable by its encoding. Its widening of the knowledge base in cultural history goes together with the training and professional development of generations of students."

Why Men Work So Many Hours - Joan C. Williams - Harvard Business Review
"Why are workplace flexibility programs so hard to sustain? The business case for such programs' benefits is well known. The elimination of ROWE is particularly striking because the path-breaking work of Erin Kelly, Phyllis Moen, and their colleagues, has produced rigorous regressions that ROWE reduced turnover and turnover intentions, reduced employees' interruptions at work, reduced time employees' engaged in work of little value to the company, and increased employee's sense of job involvement, using rigorous social science methodology. But the issue here is not money. At issue are manliness and morality. For upper-middle class men, notes sociologist Michèle Lamont, ambition and a strong work ethic are "doubly sacred. . . as signals of both moral and socioeconomic purity.""

Stumbling and Mumbling: Gender inequality & overconfidence
Why are there so few women in company boardrooms? There are, of course, many reasons. But a new paper highlights one that’s overlooked:

Isak is a space to celebrate tales and truth in the curious, joyful way embodied by the writer--Isak Dinesen--for which it is named.

By tales, I mean fiction (especially short fiction), as well as other literary and artistic narratives. By truth, I mean the world in which we live. I especially have my eye on creative social justice

Thus Spake Zuska : The Problem of the Problem of Motherhood in Science
Motherhood is an issue for a woman who chooses to work and have children, in science or in any career. It is not, however, the issue for women in science. In some respects, being constantly inundated with reports and articles and books, however well-meaning, about how it is teh babeez that are keeping women down and out in science is not helpful.
