Weekly Whims of a Wild-Type Female is a regular feature on EQSQ.com focusing on gender, racial and work place discrimination. Sometimes light-hearted, and sometimes serious, the column explores gender stereotyping and discrimination between men and women and how that relates to their empathizing and systemizing tendencies. In a move to ensure the feature is delivered weekly and to ensure broader coverage, the author is inviting consumers to submit their own stories relating to gender differences and discrimination. Weekly Whims is one of a series of features and resources hosted at EQSQ.com, home of Cambridge University's (England) EQ and SQ personality tests developed by Professor Simon Baron-Cohen and Sally Wheelwright.
Katrina Boydon has been contributing to the Weekly Whims column for just over a year. Some of the topics she has covered include:
- Why Do Women Work? http://www.eqsq.com/columns/why-do-women-work.html
- The Seeds of Racial Discrimination: When are they Planted? http://www.eqsq.com/columns/race-discrimination.html
- Gender Discrimination in the Workplace: It's Not What you Think http://www.eqsq.com/columns/gender-discrimination-work.html
When asked where she sourced her ideas, Boydon had this to say: "Oh, heavens! Everywhere. Magazines, television, news, online, observations at home and at work. Men and women are different so there's no shortage of material."
However, despite the availability of material, Boydon has been unable to keep up with a weekly schedule. As a result, she is inviting her regular readers to contribute with their own stories by clicking on the "Suggest a Whim" link on any of her Weekly Whims columns. She went on, "I'm sure any working mom can tell you how hard it is to devote time to anything other than work and family. So, I'm asking readers everywhere to write in with their stories, funny or serious, of gender stereotyping. Of course, we don't discriminate on EQSQ.com, so contributions from Wild-Types of either gender will be considered."
EQSQ.com has made it easy for readers to contribute their ideas with an email link just above the current columns.
EQSQ.com (http://eqsq.com) centers on the Empathizing-Systemizing theory of the male versus the female brain types. The tests were developed by professor Simon Baron-Cohen and Sally Wheelwright at the University of Cambridge, England. Systemizers and empathizers can find information and resources for education, educational programs and career choices.
