    We shouldn’t have “male-dominated” and “female-dominated” fields that separate us into gender-specific jobs that don’t correspond with our actual aspirations.

    7 ways we can fix gender inequality other than with confidence

    The most recent encouragement to just “fake it til you make it” comes from Katty Kay and Claire Shipman who published a feature on the “confidence gap” in the Atlantic. In the undoubtedly well-meaning piece, Kay and Shipman share troubling research outlining an equally gloomy picture: Women undervalue their accomplishments, and it’s holding them back in the workplace.

    Although it’s true that some women suffer from more self-defeating thoughts and lower self-esteem, gender inequality can’t be reduced to mental health issues. Women’s lack of opportunities in the workplace are due to much deeper issues, and it’s time we admit that. Instead of telling women to change their personalities, maybe it’s time we take a look at the entire system.

    Photographer Kristy Boyce wants to show “What Dyke Looks Like”

    Photographic journalist Kristy Boyce has turned her gaze to Russia’s LGBT community, in light of the country’s most recent wave of anti-LGBT activist legislation and the Sochi Olympics.

    Through her ongoing project, “What Dyke Looks Like,” Boyce traveled to Russia to document, she explains, “the hypocrisy of having the Olympics in a country while its people suffer human rights abuses.” Boyce believes that this particular endeavor in portrait-making is a collaborative process that functions as a kind of “reverse discourse,” as a way to give Russia’s LGBT community an avenue of expression. In tandem with this objective, she has also produced video interviews of members of the community in order to “allow a more dominant, direct voice of [the] people,” from coming out stories to testimonies of bigoted violence experienced against them.
