There is the businesswoman, wearing a suit and glasses and holding a briefcase. There is the mother, smiling as she pours milk into her children’s cereal bowls at the breakfast table. There is the multitasker, holding a laptop in one hand and a baby in the other.

These stock images are familiar to anyone who has seen an advertisement or flipped through a magazine or brochure illustrating working women and families. And their ubiquity is hurting girls and women by feeding into old-fashioned stereotypes, says Sheryl Sandberg, the Facebook executive who has become an advocate for women achieving leadership roles.

To try to remedy the problem, Ms. Sandberg’s nonprofit organization,, announced on Monday a partnership with Getty Images, one of the biggest providers of stock photography, to offer a special collection of images that it says represent women and families in more empowering ways.

    I think Conan is hilarious, as well. The Simpsons enjoyed its glory years under his direction. And his skills at improvisation are second to none, in my opinion–at least in terms of spontaneous and physical wit (see, e.g., when Conan took his show to Canada). I haven't watched him in awhile, but I watch little other than news these days, which is, ya know, the funniest television of all.Sean


    While I agree, the point of the LTAR is to compare apples to apples. The study wouldn’t be particularly scientific if they grew completely different crops. What you’re describing is much more like the UN reports that have come out over the past few years — the ones that compare the amount of food produced in a small-scale, sustainable, closed system to that produced by a system requiring expensive chemical and technological inputs.

    Es ist schon sehr interessant, in Zeiten von WLAN, Megapixelkamera und Millionen von Displayfarben, dass sich manche Menschen auch noch freuen, wenn ihr neues Mobiltelefon z.B. einen Kalender hat.

    Es necesario validar las emociones, todas, positivas y negativas, porque siempre hay alguien a tu alrededor que se encargar de invalidar… no sólo a los niños, también a los adultos.

    a friend recently forgot to take off her (large and very visible) necklace before passing through the scanner. The agent didn’t tell her to take it off, and then had to hold up the line while she removed it, was ‘wanded’ etc. Meanwhile they missed the liquids in her bag. The same agent told me I didn’t have to remove my watch – after the scan the first question was do you have a watch on your left hand. I have to pat down your arm. Somedays you just can’t win!

    Hallo Chrissy,denkst du da an eine Art Bildergalerie-Plugin, z.B. in der Sidebar? Diese Idee finde ich klasse und auch sehr sinnvoll. Spontan, fällt mir zwar keine Lösung ein, ich werde werde es aber einmal ausprobieren und schauen, ob ich eine Möglichkeit finde :-)Viele Grüße,Ellen
