Happy wednesday right? I am here just chillaxing. One thing about being married, i watch a lot more tv – primarily the news and i drink more hot beverages. I wonder why.
While watching the news is supposed to be informative, it more often than not leaves you sad or just angry. This morning i have watched snippets of cnn and Al Jazeera. Cnn i am upset Netanyahu won the elections in Israel. It means a lot for US and middle east relations. First of all, i still dont fully understand the US Israel relationship but i know Obama has given them less than previous administrations and they are upset. I dont like to talk politics.
AlJazeera was talking about #womeninSTEM. Science, Technology, engineering and mathematics. Its funny how people assume women are scared of the above listed subjects. While there are fewer women in these fields, i dont believe women are scared of these subjects. These subjects just tend to be less appealing to women, maybe because of their rigidity and lower room for creativity. And lets face it, many people feel less inclined to offer women in these fields jobs. I remember being offered jobs in the middle east unseen- email correspondence, and once they found out i was female they often rescinded or tried to lower salary offer.
What are your thoughts? Kindly share.
