To celebrate International Women’s Day, all week bluenotes will be guest edited by respected journalist and author Catherine Fox. We’ll be publishing content on women, their experience in the workplace and the future of equality. We hope you enjoy it.
It’s no stretch to describe the last few months as a watershed for women.
It seems that suddenly the topic of sexism and harassment is everywhere, from Hollywood to political circles and the corporate world.
But tipping points often feel as though they spring from nowhere when in fact the pressure has been building for decades on many fronts.
Our IWD content reflects that breadth as we examine what this new world means to women leaders and how it’s shaping their priorities; the future for women in tech and the work of platforms like SheStarts for entrepreneurs; the confidence question, and the importance of flexibility and feeling safe at work.
And we ask some of our women leaders what they are reading and watching as we mark IWD.
