#GoodRead Roundup | Feminist Thor, A Woman on the $20, & One Year of GA!
It's the last week of Women's History Month and we're celebrating with women on money, advice for organizers, and GenderAvenger birthday news!
"Women Slay Once Again at the Box Office, Still Horrendously Underrepresented": "Cinderella" and the new installation of the "Divergent" series are filling theatres, offering more proof that films with female protagonists can bring in blockbuster crowds. Yet in 2015, the number of female protagonists in movies is still a measly 12%.
Halle Tecco reflects on the state of women in healthcare in Rock Health and XX in Health's new report, The State of Women in Healthcare:
Despite making up more than half the healthcare workforce, women represent only 21% of executives and 21% of board members at Fortune 500 healthcare companies. Of the 125 women who carry an executive title, only five serve in operating roles as COO or President. And there’s only one woman CEO of a Fortune 500 healthcare company.
It's our birthday!
GenderAvenger is officially one year old!
Here's what we're celebrating:
- Mashable, GOOD Magazine, Daily Dot, MTV, and Daily Life: We're so excited to see the GA Tally featured on a few of our favorite websites. Have you tried the GA Tally out? Use it on your next panel or conference to share speaker gender ratios.
- We have ONE MORE WEEK of the Mellody Hobson Challenge. Every donation you make this week will be tripled — $10 becomes $30, $20 becomes $60, and $50 becomes $150.
- You! We couldn't do this without you. Thank you for your pie charts, your tweets, your passion, and your support. We can't wait to show you what we have in store for the second year of GenderAvenger.
