Based on what data these companies are described as female friendly? Even so, when you centralize something based on gender, all genders lost in that assumption. Why not, human-friendly jobs?

Pros:

Nice list of jobs.

Cons:

Built on a sexist ideology.

Hi Micael, thanks for enjoying our list of jobs. We work really hard to ensure the highest quality remote opportunities around (no "pay to list" stuff). As noted in our description, we're for men & women alike - anyone can use our site & apply for jobs. However, the unfortunate truth is that there's a gender gap in our world - and most job sites focus on developer jobs that are skewed masculine & have some sketchy jobs trying to scam. We have heavy curation, community flagging & a focus on marketing/design/support jobs to fix the gender imbalance.
This is deeply personal to me - I lost faith in remote jobs as a possibility. I came across a great seeming job on a very popular remote site...only to find out it was a scam. Promised high pay & solid work, I did interviews for hours on end. Ultimately, I was able to spot the scam once they asked for too many personal details & offered a job that was too good to be true. Luckily, I didn’t fall for it…but who knows how many people have since? This is why I started RemoteWoman - by leveraging curation & a strong community, we're going to bring back trust. Instead of "pay to list" sites, our community hand-curates companies that we believe in & flags any bad actors. By doing this, we’ll never provide a flood of sketchy jobs to you. We hope to be a small part of a larger movement where companies make their workplaces & hiring process inviting for all sexes, genders, orientations and races. Note on gender: we built this for women & men - it's free for all to find & apply for jobs. However, we did choose to focus on improving the gender balance that unfortunately exists. We decided to focus heavier than our competitors on marketing, design & support jobs. We decided to build a strong community that 's female-leaning for curation, flagging issues & support. This was my focus because us women working remotely need more community & trust.

To quote the creator : We hope to be a small part of a larger movement where companies make their workplaces & hiring process inviting for all *sexes, genders, orientations and races* And yet its a remote work site only for women

Pros:

Personally, hand curated list of jobs

Cons:

Make it accessible to all genders. Diversity also includes men you know.

Hi Shivendra, thanks for enjoying our hand-curated list of jobs. We work really hard to ensure the highest quality remote opportunities around (no "pay to list" stuff).

Great curated list of remote jobs. Cool name. Shocked, but not at all surprised by the responses of men in these reviews. These responses are exactly why remotewoman needs to exist.

Pros:

That someone is taking the time to vet jobs at companies that are not only remote but safe for women.

Cons:

None, I can't believe men are calling this sexist. Really?

The men complaining in the comments seem to be basing their assumptions on the name of the product and not the product itself. Reading the description, maker's comment and product copy, I don't get how this is "positive discrimination".

Pros:

1. Job board built on a community to vet the companies/jobs 2. focus on dev & non technical jobs equally.

Cons:

It would be helpful to have a precise description of the process to vet the companies and make that more visible in the product.
