    Megan Olivi was “genuinely so hurt” by Stephen A. Smith when he complimented ESPN’s UFC coverage, listing multiple announcers and reporters, but failed to mention her name. “It’s, unfortunately, something the women in this room have dealt with before and will have to continue to deal with,” Olivi said during a press conference shared by MMA Junkie. “I don’t think he did it on purpose. I don’t think there was any (bad) intent. I don’t think he was trying to be rude by any means. I just think it didn’t really matter to him.” After UFC 260 in March, Smith praised a number of male commentators, analysts, and reporters, for the job they did covering the event. Despite her prominent role as a reporter, Olivi was left off the tweet.

    A former Albany statehouse reporter is now the seventh woman to publicly accuse Gov. Andrew Cuomo of sexual harassment — detailing on Friday instances of unwanted touching and humiliating comments she endured while covering his administration. Jessica Bakeman says she was sexually harassed by Cuomo several times since the start of her journalism career in 2012. In a first-person piece for New York Magazine, she described a 2014 holiday party in which the governor gripped her tightly as she went to say goodbye for the night. “He took my hand, as if to shake it, then refused to let go,” Bakeman wrote. “He put his other arm around my back, his hand on my waist, and held me firmly in place while indicating to a photographer he wanted us to pose for a picture.” Bakeman, who was 25 at the time and working for what is now Politico New York, said red flags went up, given her “job was to analyze and scrutinize him.” Jessica Bakeman says she was sexually harassed by Cuomo several times since the start of her...

    The agreement with Nathalie Fontanez was finalized last month A former Boston firefighter who said she was sexually harassed by male colleagues while on the job, then denied a better position as retaliation for reporting the harassment, has reached a $3.2 million settlement with the city, her attorneys said Tuesday.

    Barack Obama allowed female staffers to be sidelined by their male colleagues because of his own ‘tolerance for a towel slapping atmosphere' in the White House. In his memoir the former president writes that he learned of a ‘deepening dissatisfaction’ among senior women in his administration that was a ‘blind spot’ for him. The women were sick of men talking over them or passing off their ideas as their own during high level meetings, Obama writes in ‘A Promised Land’. As a result they felt ‘diminished, ignored and increasingly reluctant to voice their opinions’ - and some broke down in tears. Obama held a meeting to clear the air and realized he was part of the problem because of his own ‘machismo’. He doesn’t name the women who were affected, but they could have included Anita Dunn, who served as White House communications director until November 2009. Christina Romer, former chairwoman of the Council of Economic Advisers, was another high ranking official. Barack Obama allowed female staffers to be sidelined by their male colleagues because of his own ‘tolerance...
    People in the medical community are posting pictures in their bathing suits with the viral hashtag “#MedBikini” in protest of a sexist study written by a group of male doctors. Hide The medical journal that published the article recently retracted it amid the backlash from the medical community and the public, who are saying the article never should have been written, let alone published, in the first place. Hide The article titled “Prevalence of Unprofessional Social Media Content Among Young Vascular Surgeons,” was first published last year but was also included in the August 2020 issue of the Journal of Vascular Surgery, CNN reported. The piece looked at behavior that the male doctors considered inappropriate, unprofessional, and controversial—like posts with “provocative posing in bikinis/swimwear” and “holding/consuming alcohol”—from the social media accounts of 480 young vascular surgeons, CNN reported. The male doctors created fake social media accounts to “spy” on the surgeons. Its purpose was to potentially detract young professionals from posting content online that could impact their credibility with future employers and patients. Hide While women made...

Today she helps a woman who wants to redundancy-proof her job and and another who is frustrated that a male colleague is being paid more for the same work. Fabulous’ Bossing It columnist Karren Brady answers your career questions Q: I work for a medium-sized company, and while a few people have been furloughed, most of us have been working remotely through lockdown.
