Born, Sigrid, Ed.
This document contains eight articles from German newspapers that feature women who have achieved career success in very diverse economic sectors, while simultaneously highlighting the discrimination and other problems (including lower income, fewer promotions to executive positions, and smaller pensions) that many other German women continue to encounter in the workplace. The following articles are included: "Introduction" (Simone Denise Battenfeld); "A Woman Helps Small to Medium-Sized Businesses" (Margarete Pauli); "A Woman as Cathedral Building Supervisor in Cologne; Barbara Schock-Werner from Nuremburg Convinced the Churchmen with Her Unusual Qualifications" (Birgit Matuscheck-Labitzke); "Seafaring--Women Still Have a Tough Time" (Die Welt); "A Marharaja Encouraged Her" (Fritz Riedl); "Women Push Their Way into Independence; Women Company Founders on Course to Success--Fewer Bankruptcies" (Rocco Thiede); "Few Women Have the Say in the Cyberworld; Women Have Only a Meagre Seven Percent Share of Top Positions in the Multimedia Branch--The Message: Get Involved Online" (Ina Honicke); and "On Small Waves to the Top; Duisburg Mathematician Gerlind Plonka Develops Process To Compress Big Image Files" (Charlotte Kerner). Concluding the document are 65 addresses of organizations that work on issues related to equality of women and men. (MN)
