These are so good.

These are so good.

It’s less about “hatred” or “misogyny” than it is about forgetting a thing which, when you are a woman trying to work in a male-dominated industry, you simply lack the ability to forget.
On Martin Scorsese, and how forgetting can sometimes be more damaging than outright discrimination.
THE INTERNET IS A global network, but when you pick up the phone to report an online threat, whether you are in London or Palm Springs, you end up face-to-face with a cop who patrols a comparatively puny jurisdiction.
This piece is haunting and terrifying and too true, and has been reblogged and discussed a bunch, but also this one other takeaway is also super interesting to me —- baseline: we have absolutely no idea how to regulate, legislate or even navigate the issues and concerns that come up related to the Internet. And don’t even really have the infrastructure to try.

Holy Fuck, I Love this Peanut Soup.

No, I swear to god this is delicious.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 a small red onion, diced.
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed.
  • 10 mushrooms, sliced thinly lengthwise (I use baby bella and shitake, but you can use whichever).
  • 1/4 cup beet greens, chopped.
  • 2 scallions, diced
  • 1 tbsp Fish oil (or more, to taste)
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 1 splash Worcester sauce
  • 1 splash soy sauce
  • 1 tsp olive or sesame oil
  • 1 lime
  • 1/3 cup vegetable stock
  • 1 tbsp Miso paste
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (I like chunky best)
  • 1 1/2 cup water

Recipe

In a stock pot, add the oil, onion and garlic. Cook on medium heat and stir constantly, until they get somewhat soft.

Add the mushrooms, reduce heat to low, and cover pot. Let cook until mushrooms have cooked down. Stir occasionally.

Add fish sauce, vinegar, soy sauce and Worcester sauce. Mix.

Add beet greens and scallions. Mix. Let cook for about 2 minutes.

Add vegetable broth and lime. Mix. Let simmer for 1 minute.

Add water, Miso paste and peanut butter, and mix thoroughly. Let cook for another 5-10 minutes. Add more of any of the other ingredients to taste.

Eat the shit out of that soup.

Brain-Dead Woman Forced to Stay on Life Support Because She’s Pregnant
Beyoncé pushes boundaries not because it sells sex at every turn, but because it treats a power-balanced marriage as a place where sexuality thrives….Beyoncé boldly proposes the idea that a woman’s prime—personal, professional, and especially sexual—can occur within a stable romantic partnership.

So honored to be on the Forbes 30 Under 30 Tech List! 
Erie and I started Tech LadyMafia a little over 3 years ago because didn’t believe anyone who told us “there were no women in Tech”. What a load of bullshit. Between the 2 of us, it turns out our network includes over a thousand STEMinists- everyone from NASA astronaut hopefuls, inventors, engineers, biophysicists, journalists and digital strategists. Yes, I made STEMinist a thing. You’re welcome.
Ladies, if you’d like to join, we would love to have you!
Gents, you can join the men’s auxiliary- they plan our annual picnic. JK! But if you’d like to support us there’s a really simple thing you can do: if you are asked to speak on a panel/conference or do any kind of roundtable interview thing, please condition your participation on the organizers finding a woman (or a few!) who can join. 
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
