From Judith Shulevitz at The New Republic, some observations about everyone’s favorite subject: “To understand why female lawyers, doctors, bankers, academics, high-tech executives and other, often expensively pedigreed, professionals quit work to stay home, you need not search their souls for ambivalence or nostalgia. In fact, searching their souls guarantees that you won’t get the story, because it’s not to be found in individual decisions and personal stories, which are always complicated and hard to parse, but in the structural realities of the American workplace.”
1. Hire women. 2. Actually it’s harder than that, sometimes. Etsy wanted to hire more women engineers, and so they were like, okay, we’re going to do this thing … and then a year later they hadn’t hired any. So then they were like, okay let’s send a bunch of new women engineers to this hacker camp and we’ll pay for it and then we can give them their first job basically and it’ll be great,” and that did work. Thinking outside the  WELL DONE.
