Chart of the Day: Women write about family and gender, men cover literally everything else

Chart of the Day: Women write about family and gender, men cover literally everything else | Herstory | Scoop.it

"When we talk about gender imbalance in the media, it’s not just about women being generally underrepresented compared to men–it’s also about what topics they’re covering. Are women’s voices present in the media conversations around the full range of important issue areas of the day, or are they still siloed into certain traditionally feminine spheres? Welp, take a look at today’s depressing chart brought to you by Foreign Policy using data from The Op-Ed Project."

Would You Pose Without Clothes? | Herstory | Scoop.it

Alan Duncan of the nudist magazine Nude Living looks at what brings women to undress in front of the eyes of the public: is it exhibitionism, does it make them a whore, is it a sign of frigidity...or are they simply sexually healthy women? 

From the August 1963 issue of Nude Living

A Bunny Thing Happened: An Oral History of the Playboy Clubs

A Bunny Thing Happened: An Oral History of the Playboy Clubs | Herstory | Scoop.it

When Hugh Hefner opened the first Playboy Club, in 1960, he was selling men the chance to walk into the pages of his magazine: the swinging-bachelor-pad décor, the carefully garnished cocktails, and, above all, the cantilevered, cottontailed Bunnies. For the women wearing ears, the payoff was entirely different. As a 21st-century Playboy Club opens in London, Bruce Handy hears from Hef, his execs, and a hutchful of former Bunnies about the rise and fall (and rise?) of the nightlife empire that spawned an all-American sex symbol.
