I don’t think it’s about women not having done anything. We have probably done - or inspired into fruition - a lot of things. But, speaking as a woman, I just don’t think the accolade is as important. Look at Iceland, it does just fine, but do we see it paraded about our daily feeds? Not really.
The obsession with approvals and ratings are essentially useless, because we are trying to judge how well people will be doing in the future with measures we made up basically immediately. Instant feed hasn’t been a reality for most of known civilization, and the concept of “fame” is exponentially dwindling from eras, reigns, years, months, to moments: and we are expected to adhere to these standards and none that have preceded them?
Finding out the values women possess might be a great start into gender equality, instead of wondering why they aren’t thinking like men. Does there exist a research program that inextricably connects Women’s Studies with Business? I’m thinking a blend of IRB approved global survey on female work ethics and expectations, plus history of labor, plus history of business systems. Written by a sacrificial male gonzo-journalist: because brevity.
Anyway, more about inequality: I was thinking on the john about racism, and why it’s less about actual race than class. I am almost privy to thinking racism is… natural. It just makes sense to me that people discriminate, and all the more sensible that it be done on the basis of what they see. The fight for racial equality is just absolutely ambitious, but I guess so was the building of the Panama Canal.
/side note: I need some practice joining my thoughts.
