Why we need more (good) female traders

Interesting, Dennis, thank you!

And yet when you speak to REAL Women you happen to know, not one of them has any such “Need”

I think, that coupled with Linda Bradford Raschke’s responses to the leading and biased questions put to her - these are probably the most revealing posts on this entire thread !

Good thinking @Dennis3450

Sorry to steam-roll past your comment, Falstaff…

I am keeping the thread updated :slight_smile:

It’s ok mate - I’m getting used to it ! :slight_smile:


[Edit - for teh casual observer LBR’s comments can be found at post 694 ]

The experience in Norway has benefitted women further up the corporate ladder but not those lower down:


As always, please do your own balance reading of both sides to the quota argument, and be assured that

it is not a magic wand if used without a context of change.

Hello Peeps!








Just out of interest, How the **** do you get a Master of Science degree in “Jounalism” ?

“…Jessica has a Bachelor’s of Arts in English from the University of Maryland in College Park and a Master’s of Science in Journalism from Roosevelt University…”

@Falstaff Roosevelt’s website now only seem to offer a BA in Journalism and Media Studies


Perhaps the MSc in Journalism was discontinued.

I have no idea.

Perhaps - but my question was not about whether the particular school did journalism, (although the fact that it only does it to BA level could be pointed out to the lady so she can choose another College for her CV) :wink: - but how the hell it could be considered a Science ? !

It’s good to see that you do actually seem to be reading my posts - if just ignoring them ! ( Post 713 folks)

Anyhow you’ve been busy - digging up 4 new “posts”, with lots of links - to bury my last one under. ! :slight_smile:



This may be worth considering (a minefield):

Ps: I read ALL your posts, naturally.

A bit off topic but still somehow related.

Tagging @ria_rose here - being that she’s a millennial woman (I think?). Do you work in the finance industry? Or are you the only one among your peers trading? Would be very interesting to know. I know no other millennial woman who’s into trading.

OMG! :blush: I feel so flattered being tagged here. Huhu. I’ve always thought that I don’t have enough experience to be part of this thread. :frowning: Haha. I’m very much a millennial woman. :stuck_out_tongue: But I’m not part of the finance industry. In fact, my friends don’t know that I’m trying this out. :smiley: Being from the liberal arts, I guess people just assume that I’m not gonna venture into anything as technical as trading. :stuck_out_tongue:

The article @PipMeHappy shared really reflects reality. :frowning: I’m from a service-oriented industry and these are just some things we have to endure to be able to earn a couple of bucks. :cry:


I’m sad to hear this. Do you have any ideas on how this might be changed for the better?

To be honest, I’m not really sure. :cold_sweat: I thought it should be easy to respect other people as human beings, and not as sexual objects. :frowning: :frowning: As it turns out, some people just can’t do that. :confounded:


A good reason why nobody, male or female, should find they want to work in Wall Street.
