Richard Branson: Men Should Help Out By Taking Notes

Add Richard Branson to the list of men who get it. After being featured in Sheryl Sandberg and Adam Grant'swidely shared New York Times articleabout why women take on a disproportionate amount of "office housework," Virgin's founderpublished an op-ed imploring men to step up and do their share of mentoring, training, and note-taking. He's leading by example: at a recent meeting of 30 CEOs, Branson was the one who took notes, and he has the photos to prove it.

Everyone Wants A Woman To Replace Jon Stewart

At least, that's the impression one gets reading the internet's response toStewart's announcement thathe will step down as host of The Daily Show later this year. The Huffington Post hopes Comedy Central hires a female host to fill his chair.So doTIME, The Guardian, andTalking Points Memo. AdWeek, Entertainment Tonight, Vox Magazine, Quartz, and Cosmopolitan have all published lists of funny ladies who'd be more than up to the task. A Change.org petitioncalling for current correspondent Jessica Williams to be the next host has over 13,000 signatures and counting; she's Newsweek's pick as well. We're crossing our fingers that Comedy Central execs take the message to heart and finally give us a female late-night host now, not next time. After all, as Nell Scovell pointed out in The New York Times, "next time probably won't be for a long time."

QUOTE OF THE WEEK

 


 

 

"A lot of women will say, 'Oh, I'm sure someone's already doing that, someone is working on that,' and the answer is, no, no one is fighting for that, no one is doing that, and if you don't do it, no one's going to do it."

-Senator Kirsten Gillibrandon the importance of women making their voices heard in an interview with Salon
