this article will survey the Gospels to see 1) what Jesus taught about women, 2) how he interacted with women, and 3) possibly why the apostles were all men. "Jesus gave no explicit teaching on the role of women in the church. In fact, he left no teaching at all concerning women as a class of people…. He treated every woman he met as a person in her own right.” The Gospels describe two miracles of Jesus raising persons from the dead. 1 In both incidents the dead are restored to women—to the unnamed widow from Nain her only son and to Mary and Martha their brother Lazarus.

Why gender equality matters « Judy's research blog
on gender equality. I find it encouraging that I see Christian men making this kind of statement on a reasonably regular basis now – very different to the situation two decades ago,when I first started mixing in church leadership circles where it was left to women to point out the problems. Dave’s post, however, is particularly eloquent. Its timing is also good – coming so soon after the Catholic church’s re-affirmation of ordination of women as a serious crime against canon law (but not, it hastens to add , at the same level as sexual abuse of minors by priests, even though the two things were affirmed ... market research, surveys and trends
Women in Business - Not Just a Pretty Face
Despite being aware that balance in all things in life (including business) is a good thing, I was quite surprised to read some of the figures quoted by Whitney Johnson in her recent HBR post about the impact women in leadership positions can have on a business. She cited findings by the University of Michigan and Cornell University that showed that “…IPOs of companies with greater gender diversity outperformed (others) by as much as 30%.”   She also quotes the research of David Gaddis Ross of Columbia University that “organizations most inclusive of women in top management achieve 35% higher ROE and 34% better ... market research, surveys and trends

NEW YORK, N.Y.—Despite the increasing presence of women in leadership positions from Wall Street to the halls of Congress, more than half of American girls say they don't aspire to be leaders, turned off by the conventional conception of leadership as command and control, according to a study released today by Girl Scouts of the USA.

Stop Praising the Differences in Men and Women
For years, I have been writing about the differences in the brains of men and women. I have touted the innate strengths women bring to the workplace. I have supported communication skills training that teach us to adapt to gender-based styles. The men in my life are indirectly teaching me that I may be wrong. Additionally, new research supports the perspective that sex differences in the brain are small. It's societal assumptions that magnify them. If we are biologically different, then strengths should be recognized. However, if our differences are socially learned, then we might be ignoring an evolution of behavioral ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

How Men and Women Communicate Differently at Work
If you think it's difficult to discern what your significant other is really trying to say to you, consider how complicated communication between genders gets when you throw office politics, power struggles, and work challenges into the mix. At work, men and women use strategies in communicating with each other that the opposite sex may view negatively. Often, misunderstandings can be avoided when coworkers look beyond personalities and consider the different ways men and women communicate. Let's look at a few examples from both sides. Men's Behavior Trash Talk. Men use negative banter, joking, teasing, and ...

The website http://www.top-education.com/management/Leadershipgender.asp summarizes the differences as follows: MEN WOMEN ----- ----- task oriented team players autocratic democratic command-and-control transformational punishment-oriented reward-oriented The Top Education web ...
