As a result of the #MeToo movement, women everywhere are hoping to put an end to sexual harassment at work. Yet there may be an unintended negative consequence of #MeToo for working women. According to new research from LeanIn.org, about a third of male managers are uncomfortable participating in work activities with women, including working alone with women and mentoring women.
As Oprah suggested at Sunday night’s Golden Globe Awards, I am inspired to speak truth to power. My beef isn’t with the usual suspects, but it’s with Oprah, herself, and Reese Witherspoon. Oprah was awarded the Cecil B. DeMille Award for outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment, and Witherspoon had the honor of presenting the award to her. During her heartfelt introduction, Witherspoon gushed about Oprah’s hugging ability.
When it comes to women's news in 2017, sexual harassment and assault allegations have dominated the headlines. While these stories were compelling and important, there were many other interesting gender-related news items that you might have missed while you were reading about Harvey Weinstein, Matt Lauer and the others. Here are ten of my favorites from 2017. 1. John McEnroe, Ilie Nastase and the Wimbledon Women’s Tennis Association all insult female professional tennis players.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
