LUNA for the W-I-N!

While it may have taken an (incredibly awesome) outside partner, this is a big step forward.

On Tuesday, the U.S. Soccer women's team received a donation to close the pay gap between men's and women's World Cup roster bonuses.

LUNA Bar publicly announced its donation in conjunction with Equal Pay Day.

Women inventors, long overlooked, are churning out more patents than ever

"The 2017 study deemed women as "lost Einsteins" -- people who could have created high-impact inventions if they had received early exposure to innovation and inventor role models."

Researchers analyzed millions of patent applications and found that women's patents were more likely to be rejected than men's. But that disparity dropped when examiners encountered a woman whose name wasn't one that is typically associated with females.

Teen boys rated their female classmates based on looks. The girls fought back.

“It was the last straw, for us girls, of this ‘boys will be be boys’ culture,” Behbehani said. “We’re the generation that is going to make a change.”

Dozens of senior girls at Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School have confronted their administrators and male peers, demanding a school-wide reckoning over toxic masculinity.

At 16 years old, Australian explorer Jade Hameister is the youngest person to ever complete the polar hat-trick by reaching the North and South Poles and crossing Greenland, but even she has to deal with loudmouth critics who have opined that her place is in the kitchen. In 2016, after the then-14-year-old become the youngest person to ski to the North Pole from outside the last degree of latitude (a distance of about 60 miles), she gave a TEDx talk in Melbourne in which she encouraged young women to embrace an adventurous mindset, and to resist societal pressures that discourage them from their ambitions. Male YouTube commenters took offense to Hameister’s message, as users flooded the page with the phrase, “Make me a sandwich,” an internet meme that mocks women for having ambitions aside from making food for a man. She responded :

The case for showing emotions in the workplace

"A 2001 study......found that teams who score high on tests for emotional intelligence or emotional quotient, EQ perform markedly better than those who score poorly."

In a society that values strength, independence and self-reliance above all else, why express yourself? As it turns out, it could pay off in a big way.

Les Moonves not going away quietly, fighting CBS for $120M exit package

Sit back and get a nice big bowl of popcorn for this one. And maybe some yelling sprinkled on top. 🍿🍿

From Moonves's attorney:
"Consistent with the pattern of leaks that have permeated this 'process,' the press was informed of these baseless conclusions before Mr. Moonves, further damaging his name, reputation, career and legacy. Mr. Moonves vehemently denies any nonconsensual sexual relations and cooperated extensively and fully with investigators."

🤦🏾‍♀️🙅🏻‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️ and maybe just 🤮.

CBS says Les Moonves has invoked his right to seek binding arbitration but maintains he was fired for cause and is therefore not entitled to severance pay.
