Balance the world!

  1. 1. Activism is about balancing the world between those who have power and those who don’t.
  2. 2. We are reaching a momentum.
  3. 3. Yet, the imbalance of power is still very present…
  4. 4. Toys still exaggerate gender division. abilities. Boys' construction toys encourage manipulation and exploration to dev and analytical skills. Interior vs exterior, danger vs security, competition vs cooperation. How to tell if a toy is for boys or girls. Do you operate the toy with your genitalia? This toy is not for children. It is for either girls or boys. YES NO Young children don't disting gender of toys. Boys aged 2-3 are as likely Researcher Isabelle Cherne boys aged 5-13 picked “girl toys equally... unless they w Boys were especially conce their fathers would think of t them. Over time, boys’ interests in become more rigidly mascu girls’ interests stayed relativ and flexible. Source: Rapport sur l'égalité en dans les modes d'accueil de la
  5. 5. Private space is still mostly ruled by women. • In France, women spend 1.5 hours more on household chores than men every day. • In Australia, the average minutes per day of unpaid work are 311 for women and 172 for men. • 85% of working Indian women feel they have two jobs, one at work and another at home. • This is called “the second shift,” which leads to severe burn-outs. • Girls understand from a young age that the order and cleanliness of the house is their responsibility.
  6. 6. Emma calls it the mental load.
  7. 7.

  8. 8. In our language, male is generic: mankind, manpower, man-made, etc. The masculine, by the presence of even one male, is the default. "Every student in the classroom did his best on the exam."  We even address groups of female friends with “You guys.” And the parody Twitter account @manwhohasitall shows how ridiculous the opposite would be: Masculine is universal. In our gendered language, “Mr.” can refer to any man, whether he is single or married, but “Miss” and “Mrs.” define women by their marital status. Women are identified as appendages both of a man and of an institution: Corporate wives, Senate wives, faculty wives. Writers sometimes refer to women using only their first names in contexts where they would typically refer to men by their full names, last names, or titles.  Images: © The Man Who Has it All Our language is androcentric.
  9. 9. We live in an ocean of sexist messages. Ads reinforce sexist stereotypes.
  10. 10. We grow up watching sexist movies.

Source: American Political Science Review o speak. ities hen a men l e time le , and STUDIES SHOW: MEN DOMINATE 75% OF CONVERSATIONS IN DECISION MAKING GROUPS. something to a woman in a patronizing way, especially something that he actually knows less about than she does. This expression comes from the essay by Rebecca Solnit, Men Explain Things to Me. Women often feel voluntarily or involuntarily silenced and invaded by men’s occupation of the vocal space. Image: Kaye Blagvad Silencing women’s voices takes many shapes: shushing young girls grabbing the mic speaking louder yelling at women belittling or patronizing the women who speak laughing at women's comments interrupting labeling more vocal women as aggressive or bossy not believing women when they speak out denying the reality of women's testimonials or experiences insulting women or threatening them on social media. Far too many conferences feature talks exclusively hosted by men. Image: Kathleen Edison Public speaking is male dominated.
  12. 12. So we end up with all-male panels… Event organizers negotiate more harshly with female speakers, asking them to lower their fees or even to speak for free. Since women speak at fewer events, female speakers have less visibility and attract smaller audiences, which justifies Women speakers still earn less than male speakers. Where are the women? Many high-profile conferences, events, and taskforces lack gender balance, despite there being no shortage of qualified women. Source: The Panel Pledge 15% OF THE PANELISTS IN AUSTRALIA ARE WOMEN Our conferences mostly present male experts.
  13. 13. The future is in code and women are not writing it. Source: The Guardian Worldwide, women are a minority within tech leadership 18% in North America 13% in South America 11% in Asia The tech industry has a reputation for being a boys’ club, and recent diversity reports from several companies illustrate how men dominate their global workforces. In Apple, Facebook, Google, Twitter, or Yahoo, 55% of Twitter and Facebook users in the US are women but only 5% of US tech startups are owned by women. Less than 7% of tech positions in Europe are filled by women. Women comprise half the workforce but less than 25% of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) jobs. Silicon Valley is still a man’s world.
  14. 14. Fewer than 5% of global companies have a female CEO. And at the end of the day… ...more men named John run large US companies than all women!

  23. 23. Women are poorer.
  24. 24. Female entrepreneurs struggle to get funded.
  25. 25. This belief in irrepressible male desire has dramatic consequences on the lives of millions of young boys and girls. It legitimizes unfaithfulness, prostitution, porn, and even assault as a lesser evil. Illegal Arms Trade $10 Billion Cocaine $70 Billion Sex Trafficking $58 Billion This demand spurs the $58 billion sex trafficking industry. Sex trafficking is the fastest growing criminal industry in the world. Female Prostitutes Male80% Source: findingjustice.org/prostitution-statistics Studies reveal 1 in 10 men in the world have purchased a prostitute. At this moment, there are 40 million prostitutes at work. Three quarters of them are between the ages of 13 and 25 and 80% of them are female.
  26. 26. Especially since most porn only portrays sex and pleasure through the male gaze. The main goal of porn is to feature a male’s ejaculation, their partners pleasure is secondary. This leads to less satisfactory sexual experiences for women. Source: Telegraph TALKING ABOUT THE ORGASM GAP 90% of men achieve orgasms during sex, while only 65% of women do. The gap between men’s and women’s frequency of orgasm is impacted by social forces that privilege male pleasure. Paula England, a sociology professor at Stanford University said, “The orgasm gap is an inequity that’s as serious as the pay gap, and it’s producing a rampant culture of sexual asymmetry.” And we’re not even equal in bed!
  27. 27. Global gender gap will take 100 years to close, says 2017 edition of Global Gender Gap report by WEF. And the most alarming is that disparities between men and women have widened for the first time in more than a decade!
  28. 28. So we still have work to do to balance the world!
  29. 29. This book is about solutions. Today, more than ever, we need everyone to be a “balancemaker.” We identified 15 key topics. For each topic, we state the problem, s propose some concrete actions you can take. 01 — Education 02 — Media and art 03 — Advertising 04 — Language 05 — Public speaking 06 — Cities 07 — Sports 08 — Politics 09 — Leadership 10 — Investors 11 — Pay gap 12 — Science and technology 13 — Sex 14 — Violence 15 — Manhood Tactics for a revolution.
