“One generation passeth away, and another generation comcih; but the earth abicleth forever . . . The sun also ariseth, and the sun goeth down, and hastcth to the place where he arose . . . The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to his circuits. . . . All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again .” The first page of Hemingway’s my beloved The Sun Also Rises, surly one of the best books of all time.

Throughout times and history there have been women in the world who didn’t take things quietly, who took action to make their world a better place, and who took initiative to make a way for themselves and others. Some have succeeded and some have been put down, but they have all had influence. From politics to humanitarianism to culture, each of the following women plays a pivotal role in the world in which we live, TotallyHer‘s a very interesting article says. But what they decided to do is to make up the list of Top 25 Influential Women in the World Today. Posting the full article below.
The first woman appointed to serve on the US Supreme Court, Justice O’Connor had a deciding vote in several of the court’s decisions, and continues to influence legal culture in the US. As a Justice she wrote numerous opinions on many of the Court’s decisions. Now retired from the Court, she continues to publish written material about the role of the judiciary and to teach courses at universities across the country.
One of the reasons Justice O’Connor held such sway on the Supreme Court is that she was not in the habit of deciding cases based on pre-formed ideologies. Instead, she took on each issue on a case-by-case basis. This made her the swing vote in many cases, which meant she would ultimately decide the Court’s ruling. Justice O’Connor’s career has received criticism on several fronts, though, including her position that foreign laws should be used as support in deciding domestic cases. Continue reading
Forbes has published today “Top-Paid Female Chief Executives list”. And… “Women account for only 3% of the chief executives at the helm of the 500 biggest U.S. companies. Irene Rosenfeld of Kraft Foods tops our list of the highest-paid female chief executives. Our list, comprised of chief executives of the 500 biggest companies in the U.S. (as measured by a composite ranking of sales, profits, assets and market value), has 15 female chief executives from a handful of industries including food, insurance and energy”, Forbes reports.
During her fourth year as Kraft’s chief executive Rosenfeld, 56, had a total compensation package (salary, bonus, stock and options) of $16.7 million. She runs the largest U.S. food manufacturer ($52 billion market cap), and her compensation is on par with her male peers at other food companies such as Kellogg ( K – news – people ) and General Mills ( GIS – news – people ).

While thinking which topic to cover during a week of active writing on woman issues, received my newsletter from Program on Negotiation at Harvard law school with titled – “Women at a loss? Here’s the bad news … and the good”… Copying the first part with some additional sources and research papers.
Women really do operate at a disadvantage in the workplace. And even though everyone (guys included) may be paying a price in lower overall organizational success, that’s cold comfort to women who feel excluded from the process. Continue reading
