In the elevator today I noticed a guy’s bookbag unzipped. “Excuse me,” I said, “your bag’s open. Want me to zip it for you?” “That’s OK,” he said, politely. “I’m just going upstairs.” “Someone could reach right in,” I pressed. “Is that a thing on campus?” he asked. He was a big guy, maybe 6’3”, in khakis and a nice shirt. “It’s a thing on campus and everywhere,” I said. “Maybe not for you...but definitely for women.” The petite woman in the front of the elevator, presumably an undergrad, looked down and shook her head. “Wow,” the guy said, frowning. “I didn’t know that.” * #whywewearblack #blackfridays #teachablemoments #knowledgeispower
This is my black sweater. . . Humble in its construct. Unassuming. Downright librarian, as far as sweaters go. And why shouldn’t it be? I am a librarian, after all. A keeper, protector, and sharer of centuries of human knowledge, truths, and creativity. The cardigan is a small symbol of that. . . But this sweater is not quiet. This sweater is equal parts armor and picket sign. It offers a badge of courage and a superhero cape, giving the strength to stand up and stand out to a country gone mad. I may be solitary in my small red sphere, but I know many other lightning rods are sporting their black in solidarity; our sweaters and blazers and jackets and t-shirts emblazoned with passion and power. Sisters and brothers holding each other up. Beauty - black beauty - in a world turned ugly. . . My young daughter feels the sleeves are “too short, Mama.” My precious girl, they are just enough. And so are you. You and your sister and brother are perfection in your kind innocence. To live and thrive by a love credo so innately within you is the lesson I take out into the world with me. You are why we fight and cry and feel these wrongs so honestly and deeply. . . We will win back humanity. For you. . . #blacksweater #whywewearblack #onfridayswewearblack #futureofamerica @glennondoyle #takeitback #thefutureislove #whywearetired #badgeofhonor #simplesteps #idissent #lovewarrior #peacewarrior

Can you believe #metoo is one year old? We are pleased to inform you there is light at the end of the tunnel. Research by The Fawcett Society has identified there has been a shift in attitudes to sexual harassment following the #MeToo movement. Their findings, supported by law firm Hogan Lovells, revealed 53% said that understanding of what is seen as acceptable behaviour has changed. Further, over half of young people (aged 18-34) said they are more likely to speak up against sexual harassment, including 58% of young men. #gurls #workplace #woman #entrepreneur #femaleentrepreneur #metoo #timesup #harassment #whywewearblack #hr #humanresources #feminist #feminism #diversity #equalpay #equality #werk #work #manager #biztips #london #instabiz #business #hrblog #blog #hrconsultancy #bullying #discrimination

We’ve all been there is a severe laugh or cough during your period and your tampon moves, you feel the rush of your period flooding out or even your cup shifting if it hasn’t been inserted right😳 this is especially worse for girls who experience period poverty and cannot afford to prepare for their period and especially if its irregular and comes more than once a month. It is so important to have an area or person they can go to get what they need without judgement or being afraid but unfortunately this isn’t always possible😢 the needs to be more access for women especially this in education as so many miss out during that time if the month or have to reply on unsanitary supplies like rolled socks🤢 if we can implement reusable products of these girls it could make all the difference even if they had to wash those pads in a sink at least they have something! And they can be somewhat prepared for those horrible times when Mother Nature creeps up on you! • • • #littletreehugger #periods #mooncup #friends #zerowaste #feminism #womensmarch #girlssupportinggirls #mentalhealthawareness #friends #bodyimage #lovenothate #savethebees #gogreen #lush #bulletjournal #vegan #periodcramps #whywewearblack #periodswithoutplastic #tampon #periodproblems #ladyproblems

That time of the year again
One year on from #metoo what’s changed? A recent survey over half of respondents said their employer had not attempted to combat sexual harassment in their workplace and 56% said their organisation did not have a sexual harassment policy, or at least were not aware of one existing. The survey also found only 21% victims actively reported harassment, which indicates that figures have not improved since the TUC’s 2016 Still just a bit of banter report, where 79% of women who had experienced sexual harassment at work did not report it to their employer. #gurls #workplace #woman #entrepreneur #femaleentrepreneur #metoo #timesup #harassment #whywewearblack #hr #humanresources #feminist #feminism #diversity #equalpay #equality #werk #work #manager #biztips #london #instabiz #business #hrblog #blog #hrconsultancy #bullying #discrimination

Theresa May has announced plans that could result in BAME pay gap reporting becoming mandatory. While compulsory gender pay gap reporting dominated headlines earlier this year, the BAME pay gap was largely unreported – both by organisations themselves and by the media. Perhaps this is due to there currently not being a legal requirement for organisations to report their BAME pay gap. Has sexism in the workplace more palatable so more comfortable to talk about? Is the suggestion of racism in the workplace, brought to light by BAME pay gap reporting, simply too sensitive a subject? And then, of course, there are those for whom sexism and racism in the workplace intersect – how do we tackle intersectionality in pay? These are complex issues, but ones not to shy away from. Opening up these conversations in your workplace can have tangible benefits to your organisation and to how your business is viewed from both the inside out and outside in. #gurls #workplace #woman #entrepreneur #femaleentrepreneur #metoo #timesup #harassment #whywewearblack #hr #humanresources #feminist #feminism #diversity #equalpay #equality #werk #work #manager #biztips #london #instabiz #business #hrblog #blog #hrconsultancy #bullying #discrimination #leadership
How have UK workplaces responded to the #MeToo movement? Not that well according to a recent survey by law firm Slater and Gordon. The survey of 2,000 women revealed 37% respondents had been sexually harassed at work in the last 12 months – and as well as being subjected to unwanted behaviour, 39% reported witnessing a colleague being harassed. Suggestive or inappropriate comments were the most common form of harassment according to the survey with 16% women receiving them, followed by sexually explicit or sexist conduct (11%) and 6% stating they’d been groped by a colleague. #gurls #workplace #woman #entrepreneur #femaleentrepreneur #metoo #timesup #harassment #whywewearblack #hr #humanresources #feminist #feminism #diversity #equalpay #equality #werk #work #manager #biztips #london #instabiz #business #hrblog #blog #hrconsultancy #bullying #discrimination

Seen this on @frustrated.feminists page and I cannot express how sad, disgusted and uncomfortable this makes me feel!! I went swimming with my family the other day at our local pool wearing my bikini as it’s all I could find in a hurry and there was a man who kept staring at me, looking me up and down making me feel more than uncomfortable as someone under the age of 18. Men think they just have the right to stare and are in possession of females no matter if you live in a big or small town🤢 watch yourself ladies and even gentlemen, sexual attacks can happen to anyone!!! • • • #littletreehugger #periods #mooncup #friends #zerowaste #feminism #womensmarch #girlssupportinggirls #mentalhealthawareness #friends #bodyimage #lovenothate #savethebees #gogreen #lush #bulletjournal #vegan #periodcramps #whywewearblack #periodswithoutplastic #protectwomen
What form does bullying take? It can include: Verbal abuse, offensive comments Humiliating or ridiculing an individual and belittling their efforts in front of others Deliberate exclusion from conversations, meetings, social events Withholding information that a person needs to fulfil their role Pranks, practical jokes, initiation ceremonies Physical abuse Rifling through, hiding or damaging personal property #gurls #workplace #woman #entrepreneur #femaleentrepreneur #metoo #timesup #harassment #whywewearblack #hr #humanresources #feminist #feminism #diversity #equalpay #equality #werk #work #manager #biztips #london #instabiz #business #hrblog #blog #hrconsultancy #bullying #discrimination
To a world where colour, gender, body type, status are just facts. And we’re all just fellow human beings, no more no less. #whywewearblack
Literally my body on my period⚠️ I get such bad period pains and symptoms because I got between 3-6 months without it due to all my hormones and other things. Although it’s much easier with my mooncup.. but it still sucks😢 • • • #littletreehugger #periods #mooncup #friends #zerowaste #feminism #womensmarch #girlssupportinggirls #mentalhealthawareness #friends #bodyimage #lovenothate #savethebees #gogreen #lush #bulletjournal #vegan #periodcramps #whywewearblack #periodswithoutplastic #periodpain #womenempowerment #womb
Would your workplace value anonymous reporting in relation to complaints of sexual harassment? Questions have been raised over the value of anonymous reporting, for example can action be taken when reports are anonymous? At what point is the identity of the complainant and the accused revealed? Sadly, distrust that complaints will be taken seriously or fear of raising your hand and reporting a grievance prevail. Confidential reporting gives voice to the voiceless; after all, harassment is about power remember, so anonymity and self-preservation allows victims to regain some of that control they feel they may have lost. . . . #gurls #workplace #woman #entrepreneur #femaleentrepreneur #metoo #timesup #harassment #whywewearblack #hr #humanresources #feminist #feminism #diversity #equalpay #equality #werk #work #manager #biztips #london #instabiz #business #hrblog #blog #hrconsultancy #bullying #discrimination
So how do we tackle bullying in the workplace? One of a number of solutions is promoting diversity. A diverse and inclusive workplace prevents employees seeing others as “other”; rather it fosters an appreciation of difference and optimises difference to enhance the profitability of the organisation. Changing the mind set from “otherness” to an appreciation of difference removes the power dynamic that motivates bullying – the need for one person to assert their authority or power over another due to being threatened or fearful of their difference, as well as the need to maintain and protect the status quo. #gurls #workplace #woman #entrepreneur #femaleentrepreneur #metoo #timesup #harassment #whywewearblack #hr #humanresources #feminist #feminism #diversity #equalpay #equality #werk #work #manager #biztips #london #instabiz #business #hrblog #blog #hrconsultancy #bullying #discrimination
This is not the first sexual assault poem I've written, and it will not be the last. I've been watching Degrassi reruns and after watching the episode with Darcy and her rapist, I felt called to write this 💜 Please read on for the long version 💜 part of you died that day. remembering was trying to identify your body. you skin was the same. your hair was the same. but when you bathed and stopped to look in the mirror it no longer looked like you. the scarring was invisible, but it was there like ink on paper. you've changed. only you would know. but you want to share the light #BelieveSurvivors #TIMESUP #ibelieveher #stopkavanaugh #ibelievechristineblaseyford #ibelieveanitahill #alyssamilano #womentowomen #safespace #whyididntreport #weareher #wearehere #whywewearblack #changeiscoming #wolfpack #wordswithqueens #wwqtribe #thoughtfvl #omypoetry #poets #poemoftheday #poetryslam #poetry #nowthis #survivor #womensupportingwomen #womenempoweringwomen #yourenotalone
What constitutes workplace bullying? Bullying isn’t defined in the same way as harassment. Primarily, it’s not against the law. Harassment is an illegal practice that involves unwanted behaviour or comments relating to an individual’s protected characteristics as defined by the Equality Act 2010; for example, someone’s sex, sexuality, gender, age, race, religion, beliefs, disability, marital status or maternity/paternity and pregnancy. Bullying tends to be defined as repeated acts of intimidation, hostility and humiliation. But regardless of the legalities, bullying is as devastating to the individual as harassment. We can all empathise with that niggling back-to-work Sunday evening dread (no matter how much we may love our jobs) but imagine that feeling multiplied by 100 and every, single day of the week… . . #gurls #workplace #woman #entrepreneur #femaleentrepreneur #metoo #timesup #harassment #whywewearblack #hr #humanresources #feminist #feminism #diversity #equalpay #equality #werk #work #manager #biztips #london #instabiz #business #hrblog #blog #hrconsultancy #bullying #discrimination

Lily at the 75th Golden Globe awards [8th Jan 2018] 😍 lily slayed this look and her new haircut🔥 and I was so proud to see all the attendees wearing black to support Times Up🙌😍the movement is almost a year old and I’m still inspired by it every day🙌 // #LilyJames #GoldenGlobes #HFPA #DarkestHour #BabyDriver #TimesUp #WhyWeWearBlack
O N E Y E A R L A T E R ___________ One year after Harvey, One year after the #WhyWeWearBlack campaign, One year since the start of a movement that monumentally shifted our culture, we are still seeing a problem. We are here to continue fighting the good fight with a rallying cry of "Enough is enough!" We are ready for change and are willing to put in the work to bring it forth. Throughout the past year, numerous individuals, corporations, and organizations have stepped up and used their voices to spread awareness about sexual harassment. To continue the movement, we're shifting our focus towards action-- towards Prevention. We're dedicating the rest of October to Sexual Harassment Prevention Month. Throughout each week, we will feature stories on individuals and organizations taking action towards ending sexual harassment in the workplace once and for all. We invite you to join the discussion-- stay tuned! #OnceAndForAll #NotHere #TimesUp #ChangeOverCompliance
The reason we struggle with insecurities is because we compare our "BEHIND THE SCENES" with everyone else's "HIGHLIGHT REEL". Well yes whatever you see on my insta is real but than to compare with the amount of grinding I've done to be able to do all of that is much more. @aakash.maurya can't thank you enough for having my back when I freakout. #ootd #whywewearblack #legday #fitnessgoals #travelgirl #viewfinder #travelgoals #travelpic #adventureseeker #delhichronicles #artistproblems #artistsoninstagram #thegoodlife #thebohemianlife #tb #mood #venomnight #venomscreening #marvelnerd #nightoutdoneright #placetobe #thoughts #brainstorming #foodforthought
Here’s an important question: can your managers manage? How did they get to their management position? By being a longstanding employee? By being highly skilled at their role? By being an inspirational leader who can bring out the best in others? Management training is fundamental. It prevents unnecessary incidences of bullying, which often occur when a manager doesn’t have the skills to manage their team nor equipped to deal with being responsible for the performance of others. Training to communicate effectively as a manager is also key. Managers need to have difficult conversations – whether dealing with conflict behaviour within the team or carrying out performance reviews – so they need the skills to do so. . #gurls #workplace #woman #entrepreneur #femaleentrepreneur #metoo #timesup #harassment #whywewearblack #hr #humanresources #feminist #feminism #diversity #equalpay #equality #werk #work #manager #biztips #london #instabiz #business #hrblog #blog #hrconsultancy #bullying #discrimination
