    Why working mothers quit workforce? What can be done about it?
    Why working mothers quit workforce? What can be done about it?It is not uncommon to see the trend of working mothers nowadays. The desire to improve the economic status of the families and the desire for self-actualization are key factors playing role in more women wanting to join the workforce. However,...

    Somehow part of my response was not posted - what I said in the beginning is both the magazines are pushed out through Boy Scouts & Girl Scouts. :-) #6
    Jennifer ๐Ÿ Schultz
    09/01/2017 #8 Jennifer ๐Ÿ Schultz
    #6 Yes, Mike - both Girls Life & Boys Life magazines are run by independent owners, however, both are Girl Scouts an Boy Scouts. And while they have a stated mission, as a mom of a now 20 year old daughter, I know all too well how media plays to girls in such a way that causes them to feel like they are not pretty enough, skinny enough and so on. From what I can understand, the goal of the graphic designer redoing the cover and topics was one to start a healthy discussion about what we should be telling girls. And I for one, am all for that! Yes - of course, someone else can come up with a new magazine - but the side by side comparison was provoking to say the least.

    Per the about page: "Founded in 1994, Girls' Life is the premier magazine for girls ages 10-16 focusing on fun stuff like fashion, beauty and celebs along with real information and advice on friends, family, school, tough stuff and more. "

    The image on the left does comport to the mission of the magazine, whether it's right/wrong.

    I don't see anything on the site reflecting that of a Girl Scout magazine.

    Perhaps someones should consider a competing magazine to portray younger girls in a different and more academically gifted light?

    08/01/2017 #5 Alexa Steele
    #4 Ugh! I didn't know this was Girl Scouts magazine. That makes it so much worse! Girl Scouts is supposed to empower young girls. Teach them life skills. And THIS is what their magazine is about? Yuck.
    Jennifer ๐Ÿ Schultz
    08/01/2017 #4 Jennifer ๐Ÿ Schultz
    #2 I know Alexa - and far more appropriate for a Girl Scouts magazine.
    Jennifer ๐Ÿ Schultz
    08/01/2017 #3 Jennifer ๐Ÿ Schultz
    @Mike Rana - actually if you look at all the story titles and focuses - you will see the wording is compellingly different and promotes more positive topics for girls that are not focused on fashion & beauty. This magazine is a Girl Scouts magazine. #1
    Alexa Steele
    08/01/2017 #2 Alexa Steele
    Bravo! The first one looks like a teenage version of Cosmopolitan. The second sends a far more appropriate message for adolescents. Life is about more than BFFs, first kisses, and turning yourself into jailbait.
    Mike Rana
    08/01/2017 #1 Mike Rana
    So, the only difference between the two image is that one is a girl whose accomplishment is looks/glamour, and the other one is a girl with an accomplishment of education?

    If that's the case, what's the target demographic of "Girls' Life?"

    By a twist of fate im working in a job that is dominated by women... telesales !!! to tell the truth im the only male... Most of the time its not easy to even strike a common conversation... 80 % of the time the talk is about children, dresses, toys, schools and boyfriends and husbands... Plus the talk about "private" things that you just feel like slipping under the desk and just become invisible... additionally characters change along the month so its quite a feat to juggle... trying to get out.. but simply cant !!!

    #2 You are right @Lisa ๐Ÿ Gallagher : it is amazing to see how much bees love being here and how much they speak about beBee. It is probably one of the keys of beBee's success.

    Dear Simon, the best thing about beBee is that you can build hives for your interests, and those hives not only provide a place where people share an interest, but where others can lurk to see that interest. You have followed hives which follow your interest in emotional intelligence, but you can also create a hive for those interested in equine operations. That is such a specialized field, and as beBee develops it can begin to distinguish between subject matter hives and general hives. Eventually, a cow path will emerge but for now the concept of affinity and hives is more of a self-organizing process. It all comes down how beBee scales and how it evolves as it scales - and that isn't something we know right now. After all when Mark Zuckerberg first began Facebook, he designed it as "a hot or not" site used internally at Harvard University. It was when venture capitalist like Peter Thiel saw the massive scale inherent with Facebook, that Zuckerberg gained leverage - for sure Zuckerberg has moxy, but only a few sites grow into what they today call the unicorns . That is something the Founders of beBee already know http://blog.bebee.com/en/newsroom/bebee-in-the-media/bebee-the-next-unicorn-startup-spain/

    Another great one @Michael Hillebrand. It was interesting seeing Matt's vision for beBee U.S. and realizing that the growth is dependent on all the Bees. We need to provide a product that draws others to the site; interesting, relative, content that intrigues, entertains, teaches, or just connects with people in different ways. There is no set formula for the content on beBee, we are creating the formula, and it will call for diverse content that can reach diverse users from all walks of life.

    Have women been wrtitten outof the history of tech and Silicon Valley? News week listed the โ€œFounding Fathers of Silicon Valley.โ€ Seven faces graced the cover: Bill Gates. Mark Zuckerberg. David Packard. Bill Hewlett. Jeff Bezos. Elon Musk. Steve Jobs. Now you can also read about "Judy Estrin, who helped create the Internet; Lynn Conway, supercomputer technology pioneer; Sandy Kurtzig, the first software entrepreneur to become a multimillionaire; Donna Dubinsky, founding CEO of Palm (creator of Blackberry's predecessor Palm Pilot); Sandy Lerner, one of the creators of the computer router; and Diane Greene, a founder of the virtualization industry."

    #5 Wow @Rebel Brown! You never cease to amaze. Thanks for sharing a slice of your experience in Silicon Valley. I will look up your Huff Post articles and share them. I do workshops on negotiation for women in STEM (groups of women engineers) so your writing will be both interesting to me personally and helpful in my work!

    I was one of the first women in the silicon valley. I was the first woman in all 3 of my first companies - selling big mainframes to fin services and aerospace. As I moved to consulting, I have always been the only woman in the room. Its always amazed me that the women in sili valley that get the press are not the women who got their status due to their skills.... anything but. I also write for Huff Post Women in STEM and I totally agree - we need to write history that include the power of the women who broke into the male worlds and who are continuing to make inroads. AWESOME post. Thanks for sharing it here @Michele Williams !!!

    Thanks! This phenomenon is not only seen in the media but in the history books our children read in school.

    @Michele Williams Excellent Read!!! It's so sad how history always seems to belong to the (mostly guys, traditionally) folks who publish the history book first; this is a VERY important read!

    The media play an important role and have the responsibility in creating the right image on the contribution of women in technical fields. This article is not an isolated case in rewriting the history and diminishing the role of women. Thanks for pointing out this article @Michele Williams.

    Really interesting article @Michele Williams. Both my husband and myself do freelance web design, on telling a FEMALE friend this, she immediately addressed her website queries to him. There is an incorrect assumption that women can't be techies......thanks for getting the message out there that we can do it pretty well, actually!

    Biotech has no pay gap between male and female CEOs. This equity is also reflected throughout that industry and in the graduation rates from universities. Clean tech, medical devices and other tech also have no pay gap at the CEO level.ย However, there are not yet equal proportions of male and female CEOs in these industries. (via @FortuneMagazine)

    #15 @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD having said that, my lousy stuff is really good, so it's no biggie; but, that stuff doesn't operate on a set schedule, nor does it utilize specific procedures or media types...but umm you know --I sporadically make my literary presence felt. I know this to be a fact. The quality/quantity/timing of hate mail Sequelae are the optimal unit of measurement along with an receipt of an actual rejoinder from @Jim Murray and/or @Phil Friedman
