With the advent of sex education, the gender imbalance in the workplace is starting to be addressed.
Karen materiae, a feminist writer and presenter on The Kelly Show, explains how to make the most of your job, as well as how to avoid the dreaded workplace ‘brogrammer’.
Karen explains that most of us know about the ‘male gaze’, the tendency of men to stare at women.
But there’s a hidden side to the gaze, she says, where men will even focus on the way women move around.
Katherine says if you are a man, you will look at women as ‘objects’, not as human beings.
Kamala Harris is a feminist who runs the blog Feministing, and Kamala says that it’s time for a revolution in the way we think about women.
She says the ‘female gaze’ is all about us, not what we look like, and that men need to be willing to look at their own bodies to understand how women act.KAMALA HARRIS: When I was a kid, I was taught that women were inferior and that it was men’s duty to teach women that they were.
I was told that because women have bodies, we should be ashamed of them, and we should only do things that we can control.
Kathryn Gillan is a comedian, and in her new comedy series, Women Can’t Do That, she explores the challenges of a woman in the workforce.
She says the problem is the fact that women are taught that they are inferior, that they must be taught to ‘be a man’.
“They don’t realise that that’s just a way of saying ‘I can’t do that, because I’m a woman’.”
