This Guide From The 1940s Told Male Bosses How To Deal With Women Employees

The 1940s saw a new kind of working woman. While women contributing to the workforce was not new, especially for minorities or lower-class women, for white-middle to high-class women there had always been a divide. Gender roles were not the only reason people balked at the idea of women working. The Depression caused such a high level of unemployment that women working was seen as stealing jobs from men. While some men didn’t want their wives working, the demand for workers became so high that even women with young children joined the working ranks. When the United States first entered World War II there were 12 million women already working and 18 million (one-third of the workforce) by the time it ended. People were …

What to expect from the Four Weddings charity sequel

Image caption What will have become of the characters a quarter of a century on? Curtis has revealed some details of the sequel’s plot. Two Oscar nominations and a hit song (and THAT dress) Why did we fall in love with Four Weddings? Clarisse Loughrey, culture reporter for The Independent, says its very Britishness was one of the keys to its success. “There’s a touch of national pride to it, I think,” she says. “The rom-com genre is otherwise completely dominated by Hollywood, but Four Weddings and a Funeral is a film that feels British to its very core – all the way from Hugh Grant’s floppy hair to the delightfully profusive swearing.” Sarah O’Connell, film critic and host of …

Carrie Gibson has written an exhaustive corrective to historians who seek to whitewash a story of settlement and conflict The subtitle of Carrie Gibsons book is The Epic and Forgotten Story of Hispanic North America. El Norte lives up to it. These 437 pages are an important correction to centuries of American history which have mostly neglected the vital role of Spanish pioneers (and Native Americans) in favor of settlers from England, Ireland and Scotland. As the author quotes Walt Whitman, Americans long ago tacitly abandoned themselves to the notion that our United States have been fashioned from the British Islands which is a great mistake To that composite American identity of the future, Spanish character will supply some of …

White hero, sidekick of color: why Marvel needs to break the cycle

In Captain Marvel, Brie Larsons hero is the latest in a long line of white MCU superheroes backed up by a supportive, underdeveloped character of color Captain Marvel soared into theaters last week, marking the first film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) to feature a female protagonist in the 11 years since its inception.

While their relationship is sweet, Captain Marvel is yet another in a long line of MCU films that features a white lead and a sidekick of …

Trump Jr.’s New Zealand tweets prove he doesn’t understand the media

Friday in Christchurch, New Zealand, a gunman went to at least one mosque and opened fire, committing one of the worst acts of anti-Muslim violence in modern history, killing 49 people and leaving at least 40 wounded. Brenton Tarrant apparently published a manifesto before he allegedly committed the act, which was rife with irony, references to far-right movements, and meme culture. It also included a mention of President Donald Trump, where he said he saw the president as a symbol of “white identity.” That a person who was about to commit a racially motivated crime considered Trump a symbol of “white identity” is newsworthy, especially because the president has often been accused of using racist and anti-Islamic sentiments to inspire …
