A recent skit on Saturday Night Live with Aidy Bryant comedically shows us the struggle many women face in sorting out issues of gender and equal pay. In response to the extreme pay discrepancy on the set of a movie with Michelle Williams and Mark Walhberg, Bryant jokes about how women are taught to be accommodating and (with humor) apologizes as she points this out. To echo Bryant's point, we're told a mix of confusing advice. We're told to be assertive but not so much that it's aggressive.
Radically listen and you will raise more money than ever before. This is one of the most profound takeaways I had from talking with Kathy LeMay. LeMay has done a lot of deep listening over her 25-year career in fundraising and philanthropic work, raising over $175 million dollars to support global programs for women's human rights, animal rights and movement building for social good.
Equal pay continues to be an important issue across Europe, as well as one that sparks controversy. In the United Kingdom, there is a legal requirement to publish the pay gap that exists in each company, which exists in stark contrast to Iceland's equal pay law. Yet while the United Kingdom is trying to promote pay transparency, there is no legal requirement to fix the gap.
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".
