2042 The leading minority
Sometimes it’s important to take note of the small things and not get caught up in the complex world of management and leadership methods. Let’s focus on the little things, our own biases for instance. Perception can be corrosive and gradually destructive.
I watched today’s video and thought about how perceptions of ‘majority Vs minority’ do not really help the development of the feminist debate. In the video the comedian makes the point that in 2042, whites will be the minority. He then makes the point that this perception of minority is only real when the remaining ‘other’ non white group form a united front. This issue has confronted the feminist debate for a long time now, with women around the world being separated - rather than forming a united front. The separation is often based on a difference, such as race, ethnicity, religion and even work status and profession. These differences have been successfully used to divide the world’s women, whom form a global oppressed majority.
The following article, taken from a previous blog, showed this lack of female unification in action when women “rated the male student more competent, more likely to be hired, deserving of a better salary, and worth spending more time mentoring. The gaps were significant."
So here is the rub;
“Female scientists were as likely as male scientists to evaluate the students this way. For instance, the scientists were asked to rate the students' competence on a 5-point scale. Male faculty rated the male student 4.01 and the female student 3.33. Female scientists rated the male student 4.10 and the female student 3.32.”
