Bilanz zum Weltfrauentag: Frauen beim Entgelt immer noch benachteiligt
(Bildquelle: @ Skillsoft) Seit dem 6. Juli 2017 ist das Entgelttransparenzgesetz in Kraft. Doch hat das Gesetz – abgesehen von einem legitimierten Auskunftsanspruch zu den betrieblichen Entgeltstrukturen seit 2018 – berufstätigen Frauen tatsächlich zu mehr Lohngerechtigkeit und Gleichbehandlung verholfen? Tara O“Sullivan, Top Managerin bei Skillsoft, zieht eine erste Bilanz und zeigt wichtige Maßnahmen für Unternehmen auf. Laut dem Statistischen Bundesamt hat sich der Gender Pay Gap (GPG), also die geschlechtsspezifischen Verdienstunterschiede, in den letzten 10 Jahren kaum verändert: 2006 lag der Verdienst von Frauen in Deutschland rund 23 Prozent unter dem von Männern in gleichen Positionen, Ende 2016 waren es noch 21 Prozent. Zum Vergleich: in 33 OECD-Ländern verdienen Frauen im Schnitt 16 Prozent weniger als Männer, wie der aktuelle „Women-in-Work“ Index 2018 von PwC ergab. Ähnlich eingeschränkt sind die Fortschritte beim Frauenanteil in Führungspositionen: Aus dem Bericht der Europäischen Kommission zum Weltfrauentag 2017 geht hervor, dass Deutschland mit einem ...

Eine für alles
minibag Farbpalette Zwei Jahre haben Kathi Goldscheider und das Wiener Designstudio Polka an der minibag getüftelt und die wahrscheinlich praktischste Geldtasche der Welt kreiert. Mit Platz für Kreditkarten, Münzen, Smartphone und andere Kleinigkeiten bietet sie Stauraum für all die Dinge, die Frau immer dabei haben muss. Das ist an sich schon durchdacht und ohne Ende praktisch. Doch damit nicht genug, kann man sich die minibag auch noch umhängen und mit der praktischen Crossover-Tasche im Clutchformat auch noch stylisch punkten. minibag ist aus der Not entstanden und Not macht bekanntermaßen erfinderisch. Kathi Goldscheider, junge Mutter und immer in Bewegung, war genervt von dicken Börsen in der Hosentasche, Hüfttaschen waren beim Bücken unbequem und Rucksäcke zu groß. Schließlich ging es hauptsächlich darum, auf dem Spielplatz oder mit der Rasselbande on tour, die Hände frei zu haben. Die Börse im Kinderwagen liegen zu lassen kam aber definitiv nicht in Frage, zu schlecht sind ...

Gap’s answer to dreaded skinny jeans
It shouldn’t be hard to kill skinny jeans. After all, women love and loathe them in equal measure. Three years ago, clothing merchants tried to snuff out the trend with an innovation called flares. Women kept right on buying their skinnies. Now, chains from mass market Gap to luxury-leaning Bloomingdale’s are trying again with looser styles. Gap’s answer: dressy sweat pants. The goal is to get women to buy new wardrobes and jolt anaemic apparel sales. This time, the industry may pull it off, said Marshal Cohen, chief industry analyst at NPD Group. “Women basically said, ‚I’m not wearing tight jeans — I’m done with them,‘ “ he said. One convert is Luciana Mando, 29, a New York stylist, who prefers to “dress in a relaxed way.” Another is Stacey Kontoh, 34, a medical technician from New York. She already owns a few pairs of loosely cut palazzo pants and ...

Fashion remembers Lauren Bacall as the icon who wore the clothes
Lauren Bacall had one condition when the Fashion Institute of Technology wrote recently to ask if it could turn hundreds of personal garments she donated into an exhibition about her style. „She said, ‚Yes, it’s fine, as long as it’s high-quality — Diana Vreeland style,'“ recalled Valerie Steele, director of The Museum at FIT. Throughout her years, Bacall hadn’t forgotten the fashion editor who plucked her from a Seventh Avenue showroom floor and delivered her to Hollywood’s door via the pages of Harper’s Bazaar at age 19. And next spring, Steele’s museum — with the help of FIT graduate students learning how to curate — will fulfill its promise in a show focused on five designers who helped define Bacall’s subtle seductiveness, her sophisticated mix of classic femininity and raw masculine authority in fashion. Bacall, who died Tuesday at 89, was a fashion darling of a unique sort. A model ...

Whether air drying after a beach swim, going full fro for a flea market stroll, or sleek curls at a rooftop party, the summer months are when your curls get a chance to shine.

Making a few simple tweaks to winterize your current natural hair regimen can be all you need to guard your curls until the sun comes out again.

How High Street fashion finally learned to love the OVER 50s
A quiet revolution is taking place on the High Street. As you walk past shop windows, you may spot it: sleeves on dresses, flattering fits that are looser on the waist, and campaign shots that feature greying models. Elegant clothes for grown-ups, rather than styles for youthful fashion victims. And look around at who’s actually carrying bags, or shopping in giggling packs with friends — it’s not teenagers. They’re either buying online, or counting their pennies. The High Street is steadily being reclaimed by the 50-plus women it abandoned years ago. And no wonder: figures just this month revealed these women now spend £2.7 billion on clothes — accounting for 41 per cent of sales — with a staggering 90 per cent of British retailers seeing their fastest growth from this age group. Suddenly, shops are pulling out all the stops for a slice of the Grey Pound. For they’ve ...

‚Drunk‘ woman who blinded her best friend when she stamped on her face with stiletto in fight over taxi fare faces jail A woman blinded her best friend in one eye after stamping on her face with a stiletto during a row over a taxi fare.

Hermès: rise of the quiet designer
You know that thing when a football team’s fans shout „who?“ when the name of their opponents‘ substitution is announced? Those in fashion might well have done the same this week when it was announced that Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski is to be the new artistic director of Hermès, replacing Christophe Lemaire. Vanhee-Cybulski is far from a household name, so shouts of „who?“ would be justified. However, as so often with those substitutes, it looks as if she’ll have the skills on the field of play to keep up with the game. Currently the design director of The Row (the understated Olsens label), the 36-year-old has previously worked under Phoebe Philo at Céline and started her career at Maison Martin Margiela. That’s three ticks towards an aesthetic that works for the elegant, artisan, but gently conceptual world that is Hermès. where to find homecoming dresses This appointment also shows a shift in ...
