How to change the way you speak female, gender,space

RTE 1.

Change your voice Female scientists are among the many people to have faced challenges in their careers as a result of their appearance. 

Female scientists are expected to use a female voice for scientific communication, in order to be more inclusive and to avoid making jokes or insulting the female scientist. 

Many female scientists are also subject to gender bias when speaking to male colleagues.

The research from a team at the University of Oxford has found that male colleagues in a male-dominated field may find it difficult to accept female scientists when they are presenting their research in a way that emphasises their own expertise. 

Female scientists may also feel intimidated when discussing their gender when discussing topics of scientific interest to their colleagues. 

In order to address these issues, the research team created a tool called the Female Science Portal, which allows male and female scientists to discuss issues of gender diversity in their fields. 

The team also created a website called Women in Science that helps male and male scientists to talk about gender diversity. 

RTE 2.

Get rid of sexist language in the classroom Male and female students alike can benefit from more inclusive language and practices in the classrooms. 

A survey of 1,600 students in England and Wales found that 70% of students said that sexist language was unacceptable and 60% said that they were willing to remove sexist language from their classrooms.

The survey also found that boys were significantly more likely than girls to agree that sexism was unacceptable. 

To tackle this issue, a team of scientists led by Professor Sarah Binnie from the University’s Department of Psychology created the UK’s first comprehensive survey of sexism and sexism-related bullying. 

Binnie and her team recruited 1,000 girls and boys aged 10 to 14 who had participated in the Gender Equalities Survey. 

Using the data, the researchers created a questionnaire for the students, which asked them to indicate how often they experienced sexism in the workplace. 

They then asked them a series of questions about the content of the bullying.

The results showed that girls were more likely to report that they experienced sexual harassment and assault, whereas boys were more apt to report verbal harassment. 

Another study in 2017 revealed that women are more likely then men to report being sexually assaulted in the course of their career. 

Finally, RTE 3.

Get your own space to show your love for your partner The study showed that female scientists who have been in a relationship for a long time, or who have experienced infertility, were more than twice as likely as their male counterparts to say they wanted to have a space to be in together. 

Researchers believe that this might be because women are often more likely or at least more comfortable expressing their love and passion for their partner. 

This can also lead to less friction between women and their colleagues, who may feel that they have more power in the room. 

If you or someone you know needs help, contact a trained professional.

RTE 4.

Stop looking down on women for being women Many women have been the victims of sexism, and it is important to get the message across to those around you that there is a difference between being a female and being a woman. 

One example of this is that many women are judged to be ‘too good’ for the role of nurse, or ‘too young’ for clinical roles. 

However, a 2016 study found that the same is not true of men, with men being judged to have more career options, to be able to be successful and to be strong. 

For example, a study from the British Association of University Teachers found that women and men were more successful than men in achieving higher levels of academic achievement, compared to women who are not in a similar position. 

According to the UK National Centre for Gender Equality, the average age for first marriage in England is 33, while in the UK it is 27. 

Women who are successful in their career may also be more likely, or even more likely in the future, to have children. 

As part of this process, RPEs and gender experts are also encouraging women to find more stable, secure and meaningful relationships with men, and to find new ways of being involved in the family. 

These can include being more involved in caring for their children and becoming more involved with their friends.
