French Roast News

New Fed Chairman Janet Yellen followed Sheryl Sandberg’s advice long before she wrote it, says TIME, when she married Nobel prize winning economist George Akerlof. Yellen gives her husband tremendous credit for her success.

“Academia is very flexible, but I had a spouse who was very committed to being a completely full partner in our marriage,” Yellen tells Rana  Foroohar. This includes full-on fathering. “I think if you counted up how many hours each one of us logged in, he certainly gets more than 50%,” she says.

Even friends comment that they have a particularly equal relationship with Akerlof providing psychological support in the daily political storms of DC and taking over household duties when Yellen went at the Fed.

Read on Everything You Need to Know About Mr. Janet Yellen.

The Shriver Report:

A Woman’s Nation Pushes Back from the Brink

American families have never been more fragile. With more than one in three Americans living in poverty or on the edge of it, The Shriver Report: A Woman’s Nation Pushes Back from the Brink reveals this national crisis through its particular impact on women.

At a time when women now represent half of the U.S. workforce and “a whopping two-thirds of the primary or co-breadwinners in American families,” 42 million women, and the 28 million children who depend on them, are living “one single incidenta doctor’s bill, a late paycheck, or a broken-down caraway from economic ruin. “

Nearly two-thirds of minimum-wage workers are women and the vast majority work with no paid sick days. The fact that women earn more than half of the college and advanced degrees in America, make the majority of consumer spending decisions, and are about 54% of the nation’s voters hasn’t resulted in trickle down policies that benefit American women. Females are both increasingly powerful and powerless in the US.

The Shriver Report is an initiative of A Woman’s Nation™, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded by Maria Shriver to raise awareness, ignite conversations, and inspire impact around the defining issues and fundamental challenges facing modern women. The Shriver Report: A Woman’s Nation Pushes Back from the Brink is the third report in the series of Shriver reports and was produced in partnership with the Center for American Progress, an independent nonpartisan educational institute dedicated to improving the lives of Americans through progressive ideas and action. CAP is headed by Neera Tanden and based in Washington, D.C.

2014 Entrepreneurial Breakout

ForbesWoman delivers 11 Reasons 2014 Will Be A Breakout Year For Women Entrepreneurs

There is always room for improvement, but America ranked #1 among 17 countries on having conditions that foster high-potential, female entrepreneurship, according to Gender-Global Entrepreneurship Development Index (GEDI).

Women continue to get the short end of angels funding, but 20% represents a 40% increase from the prior year, according to the Center of Venture Research, which studies early-stage equity financing for high-growth ventures.

Some of the 11 reasons cited by Forbes include:

Women make better leaders than men, according to research conducted by Zenger Folkman. “They build better teams; they’re more liked and respected as managers; they tend to be able to combine intuitive and logical thinking more seamlessly; they’re more aware of the implications of their own and others’ actions;  and they think more accurately about the resources needed to accomplish a given outcome,” said  Jack Zenger and Joseph Folkman in Forbes.

Venture-backed companies that include females as senior executives are more likely to succeed than companies with only men in charge, according to Women at the Wheel: Do Female Executives Drive Start-Up Success? a report by  Dow Jones VentureSource.

Women-led private technology companies are more capital-efficient, achieving 35% higher return on investment, and, when venture-backed, bringing in 12% higher revenue than male-owned tech companies, according  to Women in Technology: Evolving, Ready to Save the World, research conducted by the Kauffman Foundation.

She’s the One — Narrated by Maria Shriver


Kate Upton Does Keep Her Clothes On, Lensed By Inez & Vinoodh For V Magazine #87 Spring 2014

Kate Upton is rarely at a loss for words. Consider that when Upton presented to Carine Roitfeld at the recent FGI Fashion Awards in New York, that she thanked the style powerhouse for actually featuring her in clothes. (See Upton’s CR Fashion Book #1 cover story.)

Kate fronts the new issue of V Magazine, dishing on ‘the ladies’ while admitting that she is doing the ‘cha-cha-cha’ with Maksim Chmerkovskiy from ‘Dancing With The Stars’. Lensed by Inez & Vinoodh, Kate is styled by Nicola Formichetti wearing Diesel Tribute handcrafted denim, sexy lingerie and nothing at all in ‘Why Can’t Kate Upton Keep Her Clothes On?’.

Formichetti describes Kate, saying she has global appeal.

To me , she is more than fashion. She puts the clothes on and she’s still Kate. In fashion we try to force these head-to-toe looks on the girls and turn them into these characters, but she is always Kate. It’s actually very rare, and only the supermodels transcend fashion in that way. It’s almost like she’s an actress. She’s an actress playing a model.

No Kate Upton interview can be conducted without a reference to Sophia Neophitou’s infamous commentary on why she would never use the model in a Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. We learn that the slicing and dicing of Upton by Neophitou came the very day that Kate learned about her first Sports Illustrated cover.

V Magazine writer Horacio Silva calls Upton a straight shooter if there ever was one. In April Kate will debut with Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann in ‘The Other Woman’. “I was completely out of my leagure,” says the model/actress.”I make no bones about it. But I just listened and paid attention. Cameron and Leslie were the most amazingly friendly and helpful people — very inspiring (and not at all like Sophia Neophitou, we add). It sounds hokey, but it was a dream come true for me to work with them on my first real movie.”

Silva muses that Kate has no delusions about playing Hedda Gabler anytime soon. We say, don’t count on it. The girl is an inspiring mastermind of self discipline and womanly ambition. ~ Anne
