Is Sexism Alive and Well?

From an article in the Observer magazine this weekend on the successful actor, Salima Hayek, which left me shaking my head,

She arrives in a riot of black and red polka dots, tottering shoes and glossy hair, 5ft 2in and somehow 50 years old, although agelessly beautiful.

Generally speaking not something you would see written about a male actor. And this from the normally reliable Observer.

Here’s something else from the news you may be interested in. Catherine Mayer is a journalist and co founder of the Women’s Equality Party. I’ve interviewed her for our Inspirational Women section which you can read here.

Says Catherine, ‘I don’t know of one female journalist who hasn’t been discriminated against at work’. She certainly has and is doing something about it by suing her former employer. More power to her. We have to call out sexism when we can. She will be vilified and told she just wasn’t good enough. We’ll see… Meanwhile, I wish her well and applaud her courage. Read more about that here.

Come and join me in Bristol this Autumn on RenewYou. I’d love to meet you!
