“You can’t begin to talk about gender equality unless you want to also talk about the things that are wrong with traditional masculinity. We have to acknowledge that we are part of the problem,” says Justin Baldoni, the actor best known for his role in Jane the Virgin. On December 14th 2017, Baldoni launched Man Enough a show which aims to tackle the issues surrounding traditional masculinity and gender equality.
“You know I like the idea of being relentless. If you ask Joe what my qualities are he would say relentless. And he would say it with respect. I am still in the business after age 50. After being fired or ‘phased out’ or kicked down because I am relentless. This is a quality that usually applies to men and I think women can have it too,” says Mika Brzezinski co-host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe and author of Knowing Your Value: Women, Money, and Getting What You're Worth.
"We need to address all of the constraints that are impacting the growth of women-owned start-ups. In 2012, only 7% of the startups we were dealing with were female-led. We decided to try to understand some of the issues that might be impacting this,” says Julie Sinnamon, CEO of Enterprise Ireland, the agency responsible for the growth of Irish businesses and international trade.
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".
