Women have a higher risk of heart attack, heart failure and stroke at a lower BP as compared to men

1. The myocardial infarction (MI) risk for women with systolic BP (SBP) 110 to 119 mm Hg was comparable with the MI risk for men with SBP ≥160 mm Hg.

2. The heart failure (HF) risk for women with SBP 110 to 119 mm Hg was comparable with HF risk for men with SBP 120 to 129 mmHg.
3. Stroke risk also manifested at sex-specific, albeit higher, thresholds:
Stroke risk in women with SBP 120 to 129 mm Hg was comparable with risk in men with SBP 140 to 149 mm Hg.…

Fijne internationale #vrouwendag #WomensDay allemaal! Naast vandaag alle vrouwen in het zonnetje te zetten, en ze dankbaar te zijn voor alles wat ze je hebben bijgebracht, ook even je aandacht voor het volgende: 👇
De tech-wereld wordt nog altijd gedomineerd door mannen. Dat is een probleem, want de technologie die gemaakt wordt heeft (soms levensbepalende of levensbedreigende) gevolgen voor vrouwen. Bindende leestip voor vandaag van @CCriadoPerez :…

Who rides #bicycles to work in #SanDiego?
Census data for @CityofSanDiego shows
- Only 0.6% of people commute on bikes to work
- 2X more men bike to work vs women (.4% v .2%)
- Women are:
- less likely to carpool but
- less likely to drive alone 25%/34%- maybe children in car?
1/ ImageImageImage
This shows:
- #SanDiego is investing a lot in #bikelanes that are used by a very small % of the population for work-related mobility
- There is a bike #gendergap that needs to be studied
- Ridership could potentially be increased by 33% by simply encouraging more women to ride
2/ ImageImage
Is a lack of #gender #equity in #bicycling planning & decision making contributing to fewer women riding bikes as a commute option?
It is seen in @sdbikecoalition paid staff (1 woman/5 total staff)
-Good news: Their Board has more equity in terms of gender & racial diversity

A couple of years ago, during the #Pandemic, a number of women directors (including me), had had enough of the inequality amongst male & #femaledirectors of #documentaries in the UK industry. @WeAreDocWomen was a result of a number of women coming together ...
to effect real change. #WeareDocWomen was already formed a number of years earlier, but it wasn't until the #Pandemic that the glaring inequality amongst directors became so obvious. Then the #tvgendergapreport came out which showed just how bad that inequality was ...
Here's the background to that report - some of which I'm going to quote from in the following tweets ..… #wearedocwomen #femalefilmmakers #timesup #timeforchange #5050pledge

This picture of Australia's #gendergap in earnings shows that progress in closing the gender gap has been plateauing since 2018

@dasmaran @CynaraKV @henrikgrunnet1 explain if it is possible to talk about sex and violence through a constructive lens. #Violence #Gendergap #ViolenceAgainstWomen #IJF22
@dasmaran : "It is important to stand up in a conservative country like Indonesia to make women feel empowered and to make them understand that they can navigate the whole world" #empowerment #womenpower
Secondo @CynaraKV i giornalisti non devono più limitarsi a descrivere il problema, ma devono occuparsi e agire personalmente per trovare delle soluzioni.

Looking forward to hearing more about the latest research on how those in the UK that experience #PeriodPoverty have been impacted by the #Coronavirus pandemic #PeriodsInAPandemic
First @EmmaCraddock89 & @bloody_spoonie give a brief overview of the "Periods In A Pandemic" project- focusing on how women, girls & people who menstruate have managed their menstrual health during the pandemic #PeriodsInAPandemic
Williams says that the project sought not only to inform how #PeriodPoverty initiatives have adapted and could improve during the pandemic, as well as centre the voices & experiences of those affected in the policymaking debate #PeriodsInAPandemic

As much as they are technologies, #Bitcoin, #Ethereum, and other #cryptocurrencies are communities of users and developers. What is the profile and the motivation of cryptocurrency owners? Do they really #hodl? How does education etc. differ across cryptocurrencies? ⬇️[1/7] Image
Answers based on work with @David_III_L:…

#Cryptocurrency investors tend to be young, educated and high-income, are likely to have experience of using digital finance but do not seem motivated by distrust in fiat currencies or regulated finance. [2/7] Image
We look into the role of knowledge acquisition about the technology, finding it has limited impact. For example, in recent years a #GenderGap in crypto ownership has emerged, while knowledge has actually converged. #Cryptocurrencies #Banking #Bitcoin [3/7] Image

#ChristmasIsComing 🎄🎄

Let's discuss #inclusion in #technology this week with this first post on discovering the @MindGap4 handled by our partner @argeturv 👏👏

#STEAM #genderequity
Advanced levels of digital competence are promoted in #STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) approaches, with curricular reforms incorporating elements to reverse inequalities
Despite these efforts, a #gendergap is still observed in the digital sphere, already in #primaryschool increasing during #secondary education and at #university.

Es bleibt bei drei Szenarien zur #KVI/#UVI:

. Doppel-Ja, Annahme
. Kein Ständemehr, Ablehnung
. Doppel-Nein, Ablehnung.

@seanstmllr zeigt, dass erst 1x eine Volksinitiative (1955 der Mieter- und Konsumentenschutz) das Ja des Volkes, nicht aber der Kantone hatte.

Spannung pur!
Bisher habe 7x die Frauen, 6x die Männer bei Volksabstimmungen den Ausschlag. Die Umfragen zur #KVI zeigen eine Gender-Differenz von 13-17%. Bei einem Ja unter 56% wären wohl die Frauen entscheidend, bei einem Nein über 44% wohl die Männer.…

So much media chatter about #WomenVoters in #Election2020. Except, if (white, non-college educated) women vote in large numbers for #Biden, doesn't that mean the story is really about why (some) men still love Trump? A Sunday 🧵on gender & the vote. ⤵️ 1/9
To begin, @kdittmar gets it right in this @nytimes piece: "To characterize the women’s vote as if it stands for a single ideology or agenda would be too simplistic...We would rarely make the same characterization for men.” (Follow her.) 2/9…
My piece in @SmithsonianMag makes a similar point: Clinton swept Black women, but narrowly lost white women; but w/in the group of white women, those who are educated, young and/or single broke for Clinton. Race & socioeconomic status matter. 3/9…

#equalpayday today. Full time working women in Australia earn 14% less than full time working men.
There’s a lot we can do about the #genderpaygap. Here’s a start. 1. Better value the work done in highly feminised occupations. Workers in the health and care professions perform enormously skilled and economically important work. They are underpaid. #paythemmore 1/
2. Organisation leaders should undertake a gender pay #audit to diagnose #genderpaygap drivers. @wgea has great resources for this. Because this is such a pervasive problem, there will be issues, be open to that and #actonthedata 2/

Great start to the day today listening to @DaveEvansPhD talk about girls' education around the world. I summarize two main sections of his presentation below (What do we know & how can we help girls gain more education)👇

@CREB_Pak #ADE2020 #education #gendergap #Educatethegirls
Dave and co-authors use the Barro-Lee data from 1960-2010 to establish facts about #gender gap in #education

1. Women are more educated today than any point in history (dark blue- Women aged 15+ in 2010, light blue- Women aged 15+ in 1960)
This is true for all countries and regions. Biggest change in UAE, smallest in Senegal (nonetheless doubles). For #Pakistan #women move from 0.35 years in 1960 to 3.76 in 2010, men move from 1.5 to 6.25 over the same period

Hai. Umur berapa kamu mulai copy paste artikel di Wikipedia untuk tugas sekolah?
Aku mulai umur 14, SMP. 🤯
Aku pikir, Wikipedia tu website yg ditulis oleh profesor atau lembaga pendidikan. Yah, namanya anak SMP. Sekitar tahun 2009 lah. Baru banget punya laptop. Nggak aneh kalo kadang tugas di sekolah tu mirip2, ya referensinya kopas Wikipedia. WKWK.

Thread (1/28) Today, @Hulu drops the 1st episodes of #MrsAmerica which tells the story of our failure to ratify the #ERA in the 70s/80s. I know this story-You should too. Why? B/c it explains the 2016 election. Really? What does the ERA have to do with Trump’s win? Glad you asked
(2/28) “At one time, ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment seemed like a foregone conclusion. In fall 1971 and spring 1972, the #ERA sailed through the House & the Senate by votes of 354 to 24 and 84 to 8” from my piece in @washingtonpost #MrsAmerica…
(3/28) On 3/22/72, the #ERA moved to the states for ratification with a 7-year timeline. It needed 38/50 victories to become the law of the land. 3 states passed it in less than 24 hours (HA, NH, DE)! 5 more passed it by the end of month (IA, ID, NE, KS, TX)! #MrsAmerica

Hola. Soy Especialista en derechos de las mujeres. No soy médico ni epidemióloga, ni útil para evitar el colapso del sistema global de salud.

Sin embargo, quería compartir con ustedes porqué en una crisis como ésta las #mujeres están particularmente expuestas.

Abro hilo 👇
Este hilo será largo pero espero que aprendan, se entretengan, sonrían y nos ayude a enfrentar el futuro post-#COVID19. Les hablaré de enfoque de género, mujeres y tareas de cuido y relación entre crisis y violencia.

Compartiré contenido bonus en el camino. Se apuntan? 👇
Para mayor diversión, en este hilo el malvado #Coronavirus será llamado 👑🦠( emoji técnicamente es “bacteria” pero aguánteneme ahí). Cuando hablemos de #mujeres (👩) hablaremos de 👩 de todas edades, etnicidades, orientaciones y diversidades.

Hey @NACTO #NACTO19. Before you fawn over Toronto's leadership, we have seen MANY pedestrians preventably killed in recent weeks. This woman, killed yesterday, might have been someone's mom.…
This one, Friday, someone's grandpa?…
Imagine sitting for days by the side of a dangerous arterial, holding a sign hoping for the hit-and-run driver who killed your vibrant, beloved daughter to come forward? Knowing there is still no crosswalk planned to address the TTC desire line? #NACTO19…
#RoadViolence is so rampant and destructive that many have called for a state of emergency.…
#RoadViolence is unquestionably a clear, urgent #PublicHealthCrisis in this city. #NACTO19…
