The fierce Emily Fowler, co-founder and vice president at HeroX, gives some real talk about women in tech:
“The stereotypes were your traditional comments like ‘nerd,’ ‘dork’ ‘loser.’ Oh, and my personal favourite was ‘lesbian.’ Fortunately, I didn’t care and I had a sharp enough mouth at a young age that when people—and by people, I do mean guys—said that to me, I would just retort with,‘First of all, being a lesbian is not an insult. Secondly, being smart or curious doesn’t make me a lesbian. What did you learn at football camp?’ Girls teased me as well and that was a bit hurtful. Mostly, they were concerned that I would be seen as a lesbian.”

Syleena Johnson is proud of her R&B Divas co-star Monifah for getting married to her partner on the show.
“I have great respect for [Monifah] and Terez for allowing the world in. It’s a very personal thing they have decided to share with everyone. I know for a fact [Monifah] was afraid at first. She wasn’t certain she wanted to show everyone her life, but she did.”
It was beautiful and I’m so glad Monifah and Terez allowed us to share in their big day.
Oh, Whitney Cummings. Wearing sneakers doesn’t make you a lesbian.
T Magazine has a great feature on female directors and Lisa Cholodenko is one of the chosen few. A quote:
“When I started making films, there was no gay marriage, and these issues weren’t front and center at all, so I feel like the global landscape has probably changed quite a lot in that time.”
