    I think it shows compassion if the woman is called out in a manner that doesn't put her on the defense. Of course, that can be hard to avoid at times depending on the woman's personality. If someone has great potential, I would hope it would be helpful. I have no problem pointing out things to my husband (yes, I know.. he's a guy and we are married) but he does have a strong sense of pride and there have been times I've really had to think it through for a few days before saying, "Hey maybe if you... or I noticed..." then giving him my opinion of how I think others may view certain things or how he may be doing something that is self defeating even.

    Absolutely right, @Nicole Chardenet. If a woman has broccoli in her teeth, I'm most definitely going to let her know. I'll do it in private, as gently as I can, and then it's her choice whether to remove it or leave it there. If we "wilt at confrontation", we won't get anywhere.

    Fatima, I'm reminded of a question my PhD daughter asked me, "Dad, why didn't you ever get your MBA?" My response was, "Honey, I didn't have time. I was too busy running advertising accounts and then you came along and life sort of got in the way. Besides, in my business I got a practical MBA because I had to understand all kinds of businesses." She brought that up last week when she was headed to New York and a meeting with a slew of other CIOs saying the reason she was invited was her ability to assess risk...practically.

    Yes. You have to decide and it is not easy but education must stop somewhere because the need for practical experience must be met somewhere along the way. You and only you will know when it is time to leave academe. Stay in touch.

    I agree with Manjit, @🐝 Fatima G. Williams, it is easy to offer easy wisdom from afar, but this decision has to be written deep within you.

    Now practically speaking, since I know you are not shy, the partial doesn't mean you have to miss out on participating in the classroom via skype or google hangouts. You can ask to be partnered with a buddy onsite, who makes sure to set you up to participate in real time, virtually. Or perhaps even approach professors directly, so that they can actively include you in any discussions.

    Or maybe, you can arrange for the partial for two years to be one full year onsite. Stating an empowering case for the learning and relationships that only happen in real life, guaranteeing the administration that with the additional year to arrange funds, you are prepared to work to be able to pay the second year's fee.

    This sort of brainstorming is part of the entrepreneurial way, as is creating a winning pitch deck to explain the non-standard way you'd like to go about applying this scholarship.

    Approach this dilemma from the vantage point of your future business-person self.

    Sometimes the silver lining is not where we thought it was, other times we voice an objective so passionately that someone recognizes our passion but the world of academia and the world of entrepreneurship are not exactly parallel lines.

    It is a splendid experience to have come so close to an Edinburgh MBA scholarship, and that effort was acknowledged by the lady who phoned and so this is bagged as a life experience. Entrepreneurship is not a road paved with success, there are some failures on the way which challenge an individual about persisting and moving on. Other times there is a temporary loss such as Steve Jobs losing his company when the Board parted company with him, only to find new roads which brought Jobs back to the original one he was on.

    Resilience is what is key and perseverance is core, entrepreneurship tests a person in a very different way than an MBA does. How does one explain the number of entrepreneurs who preferred practical action rather than serving academic time?

    Then are academicians who question the whole premise and value of an MBA education in an increasingly VUCA world (volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous) http://www.mintzberg.org/blog/mbas-as-ceos and maybe only an MBA can come up with acronym like VUCA. It should not be me saying "don't give up", it should be one's own conscious saying "this is who I am".

    Excellent article about the "micro-aggression" of so-called cultural or artistic appropriation. Bravo to you!!! If we don't wish to influence what the eye can see and the heart takes in we should not create and if we do we should "put it out there" and shut up. How others take in what we have put forth is up to them, not up to us, a culture, a nation, or any other authority but the "receiver" of the expression. Artistic expression should never be nor will it ever be dictatorially controlled or managed by its creator or his/her environment: Again. Bravo!

    #11 LOL. No you're not. You can't resist me, Brian. You will come back again and again and comment and spew hatred for what I write because I OWN YOU. :)

    You are OBSESSED with women. You are OBSESSED with feminists. Endlessly quoting laws in countries you don't even live in, and which don't affect you in the slightest, is an easier way of dealing with your personal shortcomings. Of wondering why women can't love you. Of wondering why you have to hide in a bass-ackwards country where women have far fewer rights than you'll admit. (There's an entire documentary on the bride-napping problem in Kyrgyzstan. But you know that already.) Learning about laws that don't affect you is easier than dealing with those feelings late at night, those doubts, those fears and insecurities that, even as you lie there and blame feminists for ruining everything, make you wonder deep down....

    "Why did she *really* make me go sleep on the couch? Was she really the crazy-ass bitch I've made her out to be or were my behaviour and words intolerable yet again?"

    This is why men are done listening to you and the women like you. The topic at hand is law, evidence and the prosecution that is aimed at putting men in the prison system on nothing more than the allegations of a woman. That now, in Canadian Legal Code, specifically denies evidence. Find that law here. http://www.parl.ca/DocumentViewer/en/41-2/bill/C-51/first-reading
    For those of you playing along and paying attention - you will notice this language for new sexual assault evidence is actually part of the New Canadian Terrorism Legislation. 8?/

    Canada also makes it a punishable offense for using the wrong pronoun of someone that identifies as one of the new 52 to 71 Gender Fluid identities, subject to fine and imprisonment.
    Find the text of that law here. https://openparliament.ca/bills/42-1/C-16/
    Pay close attention to Amendment 42.1, as men are already going to prison for 'words'.
    It is Orwellian Big Brother Thought Police - wrapped in wonderful slathered Diversity, Unity, Empowerment, Humanity, Dignity, Equality and Protection. But never mind them facts.

    You want to go off on a rant about an errant misanthrope .... maybe you should look at the morass you are living in and realize why the growing dissatisfaction against the machine you have built - clamored for, ranted and screeched for 40 years is breeding violence and rage that will yield dystopia / collapse / anarchy.
    And I give Not One Fuck to save it - I host my channels to awake, inform, and prepare men to do what needs to be done when the time comes; and it is Apathy Thirty Now.
    Enjoy the show - a growing number of men will not come and save you. A growing number of men are completely fine to let you enjoy all the just desserts of the mess you created.

    Where have all the Good Men Gone? - if they are paying attention - away from population centers and countries that support this Orwellian Totalitarian future.
    oh Canada, alas - I knew it well.

    #5 Brian, I don't take anything you say seriously when you go off on one of your whiny omega-male rants and I don't actually care about the law. I watched you recently make fun of some men here on beBee - twitting one about how he doesn't have any balls because he listened to a woman in his life - as if *you* had any testicles left. You're the most (self-) emasculated man I "know". And I wonder, Brian...how does that work out for you? Does it make you feel better, at least for a little bit, to crap all over people you don't know? To twit them about not being a 'real man' when in fact you writhe with jealousy that others can emotionally connect and you can't? Does it make the bad feelings go away for at least a little? Does it stop the endlessly cycling negative thoughts in your head? And deep down, does it make that chronic, nagging feeling of "not being good enough" seem less real? Does it make it possible for you to lie to yourself a little while longer, tell yourself that the problem is that women are all bitches and feminists all hate men and the problem isn't actually with your own twisted psyche? Because of *course*, Brian, the problem isn't *you*. The problem is *everyone else*.

    Sometimes I think the reason why you try to engage me in conversation is because it may well be the most attention you get from ANY woman :) Well fine, Buttercup, I'll give you some attention from time to time. I think it's good for you to read my posts and comments. In the immortal words of He Who Must No Longer Be Named, be careful or you might learn something :)

    If you were as smart as you think you are, Brian, you'd realize that I'm not the sort of feminist you're angry with. But you're so blinded by your rage you can't see who your real enemies are. But keep telling yourself that the problem is everyone else and not you. And if that doesn't work, go twit some guy for not buying a motorcycle. That'll make you feel better :)

    A robbery would yield evidence, and investigation would require proof. (to avoid against fraud and graft)
    In Canada - evidence in Assault cases is no longer required - it is indeed, EXEMPTED. Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould is expanding rape shield provisions to include text messages and other communications of a sexual nature or for a sexual purpose, either from before or after the sexual activity in question.

    #4 I agree, educating women to file a report immediately is key. I think there need to be more organizations women/girls can turn to that can walk them through the process. Through education girls and women could possibly learn of organizations they may trust. Many times all someone needs is an advocate in order to get enough courage to report ASAP.

    #3 Rape is a very sticky wicket. People are beginning to realize there are different shades. Not all rape is as cut-and-dried as one might think. You know, like women who didn't want to have sex but 'agreed' to it because they were a little afraid, or they regretted it later, etc. In Ontario I expect we're going to start having a conversation about "how drunk is too drunk to consent." I do think there needs to be a real push to get women to go to the police *immediately* despite the very real fears they have of how they're treated. If you wait too long the evidence is gone and there's a good reason why it's hard to convict someone on lack of evidence, for *anything*, not just rape. We need to reform the justice system and enforce the laws on defense lawyers who ignore them, but we also need to reform women's brains and make them realize that if they wait too long *he's gonna get away with it*.

    #2 I have a feeling if he's found not guilty after a second trial there will be a civil law suit which would be appropriate. You're right, he's ruined. It is sad, I admired Bill Cosby for years. He was a funny man and many of us had high regard for him because of his Pound Cake Speech. It's beyond shameful what women have to go through in this country to PROVE rape. So many men do get away with it because juries do have a hard time convicting men based only on circumstantial evidence. I guess 30 plus women with similar stories who don't know each other are all liars. I'm sure what makes it more difficult for the jury is the fact that they waited so many years to become vocal about this. I'm not blaming the women.

    If Camille knew about this, yes- it would make her an accessory unless she fears him for some reason. I know women who are lawyers as one example, were abused mentally or physically by their husbands and it took some years for them to get the courage to walk away from their marriage and/or report their husbands. So, there are many highly intelligent women who are still too afraid to leave. We will never know in Camille's case- but at this point if she knew, she would have a responsibility to speak up. This is all so sad.

    22/06/2017 #2 Nicole Chardenet
    #1 Thanks, Lisa! I don't know if a second jury will find him guilty...frankly, sexual assault is very difficult to prove even if a woman goes immediately to the police before destroying the evidence in a shower, and years after the fact...I don't expect they'll be able to prove anything "beyond a shadow of a doubt." Doesn't matter though...Cosby is done. His name and reputation are ruined. I find myself not even wanting to quote him anymore and he came up with some great ones over the years between his comedy routines and his work on Fat Albert, which I watched when I was a kid, and his famous (or infamous) Pound Cake Speech when he said out loud what a LOT of people were thinking, and took the s**t from blacks who were mad he said it in front of the white folks.

    I suspect Camille Cosby is an enabler who knew what he was doing with those Quaaludes and if she did, then that makes her an accessory to the abuse and degradation of other women. I hope she's proud of herself. For all the good she's done, for all that she could be a role model for many (and while researching her I was impressed with just how far she'd come since 1963), now I see her as just another Tammy Wynette dimbulb. And maybe a racist one at that.

    Wow @Nicole Chardenet, this should go viral! You spoke for many. I wondered why Camille has been so quiet and supportive of the Cos too. It's not a conspiracy theory all these women made up. FFS, it's obviously the truth. I can only wonder, no matter how strong Camille is now, is she also in a controlling and/or abusive marriage or is it just as you stated, she's an enabler? Unless she speaks out, we will never know but I go with enabler. He's a wuss and would not have drugged all those women otherwise. i guess the only thing that makes me happy is the fact that he wasn't a serial killer and they are still alive to tell their story. I have a feeling a second jury will find him guilty. Seriously, wth was wrong with the first jury and all the facts presented to them??? Again, as you said, It's the OJ syndrome, how could innocent Bill Cosby who was loved and adorned on the TV screen do this to women?! Time for society to wake up and smell the crap they choose to ignore.

    Thank you @🐝 Fatima G. Williams - one thing that I try to do in growing my business - is to help other female entrepreneurs, like me, who are starting off. Just an example this morning, one of my boutique customers reached out because she loved that I started my own clothing boutique and wanted to know if I would answer some questions as she was launching a boutique herself. Now someone else might have said "no", because we are competitors - but, I really thought that it would have been nice if I had someone when I was starting out to talk to - so I wanted to help and answered all her questions.

    Sorry for coming into this discussion so late @🐝 Fatima G. Williams and thank you for the mention in your sensational buzz! I like that you first focused on the unique aspects and challenges of women but then spoke of the qualities and vision of entrepreneurs in general because I have to echo @CityVP 🐝 Manjit's comment. "Fatima, when we are focused on moving towards equality we are comparing women to men, but the future requires us to compare ourselves to human beings and this is what raises the bar on what we deem to call humanity." Thank you Fatima for your inspiration and drive to move us in the right direction.

    Heard this brief interview on the CBC this afternoon while I was making lunch. Ontario has, to my American brain, a fairly bizarre and often overly-broad idea of what rape and sexual assault are. Like Ms. Young, I think there are definitely some very grey areas that aren't rape - like being badgered into it and then later claiming, because you really weren't into it, that it was 'assault'. I myself would like young women to be socialized to be quite clear with themselves on what they want, and communicate it clearly, without all the near-legalese mishigoss people have to go through practically just to negotiate a simple kiss.

I won't fight with you and if you insist on hanging around me on beBee you will get regular reminders that you have the power to make your life better.

    #3 You want a fight with a feminist and you won't get one with me. I see what you are, Brian. Seriously. You're a man who's built his own prison with the door wide open and you're afraid to step through to freedom. It's frightening, isn't it? It comes with responsibility and it's so much easier to blame women, your parents, and everyone else for your problems. I hope some day you have the courage to leave your prison. It's much nicer out here in the sunshine.

    A beautiful message and lovely and vibrant poem, @Donna-Luisa Eversley. While we have definitely made strides in many areas there are still road blocks, aren't there? I continually deal with the label of "being a woman" in the work place and fighting for equal pay. It's an exhausting battle, but one that I have to fight. Not just for me but for those that come after me, and for those who haven't found their voice yet. It's disheartening to watch the inequality that reverberates throughout our society, and sometimes within the confines of our own environment. If you are a strong, intelligent woman who is passionate and not afraid to speak her mind, you risk being labeled as a bitch. And for a while, I let the labels and judgement hold me back from being me. It's freeing to walk the walk though and I'm so glad I finally broke free from the "can't" handcuffs.

    Thanks for this awesome buzz, DL. Put simply, sex-based discrimination against women and girls should never be tolerated -- period! Moreover, sex discrimination includes sexual harassment, pregnancy bias and gender-based wage discrimination (equal work for equal pay).
    Further, I would be remiss without mentioning the many other types of discrimination ranging from the workplace to every place, including (but not limited to): race, color, religion, national origin/ethnicity, age/looks, disability, genetic information/DNA, etc.

    It shouldn't be surprising that situations like this not only exist, but are perpetuated. Perception is 99 percent of most people's reality.
    How many guys have been suckered by an attractive barmaid who doesn't wear her rings? She flirts with them to earn a living. They're called tips.
    Is that wrong? Or is it living in reality?

    Just 2.7% odds of getting hired. Delicious. 8?/ I am going to have a drink and ponder the appropriate engagement ring for my spirit animal. PS - a pre-nup is nearly as patently worthless as the marriage certificate / license - neither has a legal binding status or precedence once lawyers and judges appear. Ask around.

    "When a man gives a woman an engagement ring, he buys the least expensive ring that he believes it will take to get her to agree to the proposal. " SAY WHAT?? What is this? A proposal or a contract negotiation?

    Maybe I'm no authority on the subject. I've been married twice. Or, does that MAKE me an authority? I mean, two women said, "Yes." Whatever.

    A man buys the most expensive ring he can afford. I have never heard of anyone doing anything else.

    On to the subject of this post. I guess it's possible that some people would be put off by a huge rock. Some may also be put off by a little one, or none at all. Let's just leave it at some people will be put off by (fill in just about anything here).

    I agree, @Grace Killelea, the whole idea is ludicrous. I may not have hired as many people as you, but I don't think I've ever hired, or not hired, someone based solely on their jewellery or lack thereof. The idea is laughable.

    Good grief, I am just amazed at some of the stuff that still occurs in the workplace Grace. This is very relevant, and a practice that simply needs to stop. I loved how you wrapped this up, as it speaks volumes. . . "In today’s talent wars, if you focus on the size of woman’s diamond and not the size of her talent, intellect, ability or potential - you deserve to lose." Right on! I hire for talent, I could care less about sex, race, religion, orientation, etc. It's all about the value a candidate brings to the table. Thanks for the post and bringing awareness to the issue.

    Hmmm, I do sometimes wonder what message my wedding "ring" sends, considering its a tattoo! Be well Grace, great post!
