I believe in the Power of the Voice of Women (Malala)

 With this podcast I would like to inspire, to uplift, to support, to empower and to embrace all women all over the world, women of all nationalities, ethnicities, ages and cultures. In the different episodes I talk to many different women about gender (in)equality in different areas and topics and the impact this may or may not have on women. 

If you have any questions or feedback, please feel free to reach out to me. I would love to hear your story.

Welcome to the Women's Table Podcast

Is criminaliteit een keuze?
Is vergeving een keuze?
Is kindermishandeling een keuze?

In deze aflevering hebben we een man aan tafel: Archell Thompson is samen met zijn dochter Yara te gast en geeft antwoord op deze moeilijke vragen. Archell, storyteller, auteur en artiest vertelt over zijn jeugd waarin hij zelf werd mishandeld, aan de drugs raakte en hoe hij zijn leven weer op orde kreeg en zich nu elke dag inzet tegen kindermishandeling. Yara is zijn middelste dochter en deelt met ons hoe zij over haar vader denkt, tegen hem aankijkt en wat zij van hem leert en meekrijgt.
Welkom bij een nieuwe aflevering van The Women’s Table.

Networking communities of women are growing all around the world and there is talk of women networking together, helping each other out. Women finally have come to the realization that we need to work together. Women even in the same line of work, start working together, where it used to be you OR me, it is now you AND me. In this episode I’m talking with Laura Damiano about the impact of women (net)working together.
Laura graduated in molecular biotechnology at the University of Turin, where she did also a PhD in cancer biology. In 2018 she became part of the staff of the UMCG, where she is now a funding advisor, project manager and member of the working group on diversity and inclusion. In 2018 she also founded the LeanIn Groningen circle, which now counts more than 50 members.

Welcome to another episode of The Women’s Table Podcast!

Women still experience pressure from society to have children. Is it  because women should have this natural urge to want to have children? Parents who think or feel that you ‘owe’ them grandchildren. 
In this episode I am talking with Shana O’Brien about motherhood: to have or not to have children, that’s the question. We will discuss the biases and prejudices society has when as a woman you decide not to have children. Shana is an independent consultant for non-profit organizations, was born and raised in the United States and has lived in The Netherlands for six years now. Shana does not have any children nor plans on having them.

Women just don’t have the technical skills to do a good job in a tech position, there might be a few girls who pursuit a job in tech but most women don’t,  girls and women just ‘suck’ at math and science so why would they want a job in tech? Are these legitimate questions or just bias assumptions? Stella Tsoutsouri, Mobile Developer who now studies for a Masters in Artificial Intelligence at the University of Groningen, shares with us her personal opinion about why she thinks there are so few women in tech positions.

In deze podcast zit ik aan tafel met Yaël en Veerle en praten we over vrouwen en hun uiterlijk en de druk die vrouwen vanuit de maatschappij ervaren om er goed uit te moeten zien. En hoe zit het nu met de #metoo affaire? Zijn dit wel twee verschillende onderwerpen of is er een link tussen hoe vrouwen eruit zien en seksuele intimidatie? Je hoor het allemaal in deze nieuwe aflevering van The Women’s Table! 

Volgens sommige ‘geloven’, religiën, kerken en de bijbel is de rol en/of de positie van de vrouw ondergeschikt aan die van de man. Binnen deze verschillende stromingen zijn er ook vrouwen die deze mening zijn toegedaan. Mijn naam is Tina de Keyzer-van Bruggen en in deze eerste aflevering van The Women’s table praat ik met Oesha en Erica over de impact die het geloof/religie heeft op vrouwen.
