The move reflects a changing business in which traditional food magazines, and a Manhattan address, are less important.

- Trump administration halts rule to shrink gender wage gap
By Danielle Paquette - Wednesday Aug 30, 2017
The Trump administration has halted a rule that would have required large companies to report to the government what they pay employees by race and gender — an Obama-era policy that aimed to close what economists call the wage gap. The decision landed Tuesday evening, prompting outrage from groups who note that women and minorities still aren’t receiving equal pay for equal work. Some of the furor was directed at Ivanka Trump, who has previously spoken out against wage disparities and workplace discrimination. Fatima Goss Graves, president of the National Women’s Law Center, said the move contradicts President Trump’s claim that he wants prosperity for every American.
- Canada adds gender-neutral option to passports
By Fox News - Tuesday Aug 29, 2017
In a move to promote acceptance and equality, Canada has introduced a third sex category option on passports and other government documents. Beginning August 31, people can select “X” as an “unspecified” gender designation, which will be available on any federal document issued by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), Travel Pulse reports. “By introducing...
- Bill would require transgender-rights training for CA employers
By Marissa Lang - Saturday Jul 1, 2017
Both gender identity and gender expression have been protected classes under California’s antidiscrimination law since 2011, but the state’s new workplace guidelines, which take effect Saturday, flesh out how employers should apply those protections to workers.More than 75 percent of transgender Californians have experienced mistreatment or harassment at work, according to a 2016 national survey by the National Center for Transgender Equality and the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force.“We had been doing research for some time in our office about the access to jobs and financial security for our transgender brother and sisters, and the data is just eye-opening,” Lara said.According to a 2008 report by the Transgender Law Center, the most recent of its kind, 1 in 4 transgender Californians surveyed reported earning wages below the national poverty line.“You have trans folks of color, folks with disabilities, there can be a lot of barriers to finding employment,” said Clair Farley, the director of economic development at the SF LGBT Center.When folks transition on the job, they tend to leave their workplace — whether voluntarily or not — and that can really increase their risk for continued unemployment.Under the new rules, employers must give transgender and gender-nonconforming employees access to restrooms, showers and locker rooms that correspond with their gender identity.Unless the business can make the case for why it is an absolute necessity, managers may not impose any grooming or dress standards on a person inconsistent with that individual’s gender identity or gender expression.If we find people are too extravagant in their display, we may counsel the employee and say, ‘Look, you might think it looks great to have 16 loops through your nose, but male or female or in between, it’s going to get in the way and be distracting at your job.Lara’s bill would mandate “employers with 50 or more employees to include, as a component of that prescribed (sexual harassment) training … training inclusive of harassment based on gender identity, expression and sexual orientation.”“When we do our training with businesses, we usually start by asking, ‘How many of you have ever met or have a friend who is transgender?’ It’s usually about 80 to 90 percent have not,” said Michaela Mendelsohn, a transgender activist, restaurant owner and founder of TransCanWork.org.

- Nipple equality: Women could go topless in Berkeley under new proposal
By Kimberly Veklerov - Friday Sep 1, 2017
A Berkeley law that makes public displays of the female breast illegal could be abolished this month if a city councilman gets his way. The nudity ordinance as it stands makes it a misdemeanor or infraction for a woman to expose “any portion of the breast at or below the areola” — similar to municipal codes across the country. Under the new proposal, anyone could go topless in the city without regard to gender. Kriss Worthington, the progressive councilman who has represented a student-heavy district near UC Berkeley for two decades, said the indecent exposure law is antiquated and sexist. He said it objectifies women and creates confusion for transgender individuals as well.
