Great advice and clarity from one of the leaders of Facebook and one of the top female leaders in the world.  This speech was from the TED Women conference in December.

Let’s make a movie about her!

Sad. 40 years of Women’s Liberation and we are still dragging the dog.

I want the same things for my daughter, friends and family. Ideally Facebook as an organisation would be encouraging both women who work there and those using Facebook.
Unfortunately Facebook policies actively discourage women who are ‘putting their hands up’ through the peremptory removal of sites support ing women’s issues such as breastfeeding – ‘The Leaky Boob’ being only one recently ‘sacrificed’ example. Sites such as these support women and their children to lead the life they choose, whether that be at home, at work, or a combination of both. The policy of censoring images of women breastfeeding, a natural part of womans life while having no qualms about overtly sexualised images of women being published is hypocritical.

Until women respect themselves, no one else ever will.
Women need to STOP acting like sex objects and stop taking their clothes off for money. It’s a sad commentary that in 2011 women are dropping out of college to work in strip clubs because they can make more money. OR they are working in nude clubs to put themselves through college. Part of the problems women face are being caused by women. Show respect for youreslf and others will too.
