XXFactored 8-14Apr: On Good Girls & Smart Boys
Posted by IdeaSmith
This week I looked at the way we women interact with the media. I don’t mean only the more famous of us and the soundbites to the press. I mean, what messages we take in and what we give out. In truth, all media is a two-way conversation between individuals and the world. What we make popular indicates what we like, what we are consuming and so we get fed more. Think about this and have a great week!
- Technology is a creation medium, possibly the most wide-reaching one today. Why should women let themselves get left behind? ‘Girls, Media, Tech: Creators, Not Just Consumers‘ via Zemanta
- Boys. Books. Mmm Mmm Mmm. And apparently I’m not the only one. : ‘Reading is Sexy‘ via Thought Catalog.
- Some parts of this made me snigger, some parts made me angry. Feminism, just like other popular causes, gets hijacked and ruined by vested interests. (via Battlefield315)
- To the great numbers that made an abusive guy, a hit: Ladies, look what the world is thinking about us!: ‘Women’s Intellectual Development ‘ via Wumo
- What makes a good Indian girl? A funny/insightful video-promo for the book The Bad Boy’s Guide to Good Indian Girls has some answers. I‘m in the interviews too. Read the book, I loved it. (via Annie Zaidi & Smriti Ravindra)
