Exchange when cooking or Cycling : women's networks in Berlin

How sensible it is, if women to establish networks, not for shopping but for the career? It's been discussed time and again. Meanwhile, the blockages are overcome to a large extent. Women were long considered to be incapable of supporting other women, for opposite reasons. Bitchiness was a secret desire to be better people than men, another. Around the turn of the Millennium, there was a Phase in which younger women on mixed networks. Also, this has changed in the meantime. The a the other Yes.

"For many women, it is a matter of course, that they engage in mixed networks," says Claudia Große-Leege, Director of the Association of German women entrepreneurs. In addition, do it however quite a lot of sense, even women's networks to join, because the quality just a different. "You don't met eye-to-eye, what is in mixed networks unfortunately, still of course. Also, any thought of Competition is not so pronounced.“

women go efficiently and pragmatically before

she knows the derogatory assessments, but left. Of a "Club of crybabies" could be no question. On the contrary, the women were efficient and pragmatic, to help also in matters of child care or to find work spaces. The scruples, to draw Lessons from the old "Boys Networks", have become significantly smaller. Today prevails the attitude: "we can!"

And not always, it goes "only" to the career: In times, in which women are attacked in social media reinforces sexist, the support by other women who show solidarity, digital and analog, for some always important, especially when you are in Public. The Berlin state Secretary, Sawsan Chebli long belonged to the women that vigorously defend itself against as a feminist. And feminists networks experienced the 40-year-old Muslim woman, often as anti-Muslim. But as you accused in October of 2017 on Twitter and Facebook a Ex-Ambassador of sexism, and then the victim of a sexist and racist outrage was, she felt alone, in the face of hatred, the einprasselte there on the web. After this incident, many women from politics and the media reported, an informal circle that bears the name "FC Feminists". Fixed members there are, the Meetings take place in Chebli, who likes to cook at home. Invitation via Twitter or SMS. In the meantime, the women would apply literally in your says Chebli.

a casual round

In Berlin, there were in the 80s, a group of professors, lawyers and the media women, which met in private houses and a common interest were: the United States.

The question of whether non-working women should be included, contributed to the end of this network, as well as Zeitnöte of working women.

you Should chat only or with demanding presentations. In this issue of the "International Women's Forum failed in the 90s". "Meet me in the middle", that took place at the beginning, at the Adlon instead, worked better, because you met in a casual round every two months for Lunch. Long, meanwhile, as an Association, at varying locations to discuss current issues, changes in the Bundestag, time in the soup kitchen of the Franciscan, in support of the women, just in the beer garden, tells the President Gabriele Wiechatzek. The E-magazine "She works!" offers an Overview of networks, special for female executives in hospitality or healthcare.

That it is completely okay to help each other, but around. And also that the magic formula, "Yes, I don't want to bring" just in front of the altar, a husband or a wife, but in professional life also post the awaited chief. Informal Business networks in which people meet regularly for lunch, according to the observation of Claudia Große-Leege very popular and successful.

Also, the "bike for women", a loose Association of Berlin cyclists, meet regularly for lunch, but also to Salons. Your concern: The shift in Traffic to make a female. On Friday you ride the Purple Ride, the queer-feminist Critical Mass. Let's go 12 a.m. on the Mariannenplatz.
