Joy To the Rescue: How a Surf Lesson Saved My Love Life

Joy To the Rescue: How a Surf Lesson Saved My Love Life | Innovative Woman | Scoop.it
In the midst of my relationship dramas joy was something I had nearly forgotten about. The men I was drawn to kept me over thinking, under sleeping and consistently anxious. But the pain of it all was comfortably familiar and strangely invigorating.

WTF?!: Fox Business claims liberals who reject that men should dominate women are anti-science

WTF?!: Fox Business claims liberals who reject that men should dominate women are anti-science | Innovative Woman | Scoop.it

Fox Business personalities had a collective freak out on Wednesday night after learning that mothers were now the primary source of income in 40 percent of U.S. households.


Fox Business host Lou Dobbs asserted women earning more than their husbands was an indication of the dissolution of American society. Fox News political analyst Juan Williams agreed, describing it as a sign of the disintegration of marriage that would have negative consequences for generations to come.

Arabella DeLucco's insight:

I'm going to put a science smack down on these conservatives: in this age of information, women can easily excel, because you know, we're brains, not brawn. :)

A child abuse ad only children can see.

NAR Foundation manages in Spain the european unique phone number 116 111, to attend children and teenagers under a risk situation. On this telephone number, only for minors, they can find the help they need in a totally anonymous and confidential way. But, how can we get our message to a child abuse victim, even when they are accompanied by their aggressor?

Knowing the average height for adults and children under 10,GREY has created two different messages. Using an outdoor lenticular we show adults an awareness message, while children see a message where we offer them our help and show them the telephone number. A message only for children.

Arabella DeLucco's insight:

Innovative use of ad technology that displays a different message to children based on eye-level/height. I like that the ad actually used a play on words.

Not one bit! Think of the level of contribution admins (most of the time female) make to the roles of executive corporate leaders? They provide guidance on top-tier decisions all the time, but are OK with the lack of credit (maternal behavior), and often keep the balance of peace in the midsts of conflict.

Female genital mutilation in Indonesia; or what they call "circumcision"

Indonesia is trying to defend its tradition of female circumcision despite a recent United Nations resolution banning female genital mutilation. Duration: 02:25

Arabella DeLucco's insight:

Female circumcision is a misnomer. This apalling practice on young girls is female genital mutilation and the U.N. is right to ban it. Unfortunately, some Indonesians still support this and claim it's part of their religious practice.

Controversial infographic on Locks of Love vs. Panteen Beautiful Lengths: Where is all the donated hair going?

Controversial infographic on Locks of Love vs. Panteen Beautiful Lengths: Where  is all the donated hair going? | Innovative Woman | Scoop.it
Arabella DeLucco's insight:

It'd be great to have more information about the content on this graphic, but it's disconcerting that there's over $6 million of donated good hair unaccounted for. I'm a bit skeptical that Panteen Beautiful Lengths is a nonprofit started by a large corporation, but as long as they're making a difference, I guess that shouldn't matter?

Ally Greer's comment, May 15, 2013 1:15 AM
This is super interesting to see, as I decided to go with Pantene's Beautiful Lengths program when I donated my hair a few years ago. The guys at my salon told me that, in addition to these fishy numbers, Locks of Love was actually charging for the wigs, while Pantene donated them. Overall, Pantene's program seemed way more legit and super dedicated to the women it was helping.

According to this infographic, beauty begets success. Do you agree? | Innovative Woman | Scoop.it

Before leaping into the nitty gritty of the beauty industry, it’s important to understand why being beautiful seems so important. It runs much deeper than simple frivolous vanity. It’s more than feeling pressure to live up to media standards or cultural expectations. It turns out being beautiful really does make life better. It leads to higher earning power, finding more attractive mates, and a generally happier and healthier life.

Remote sex: There's an app for that - CNN.com Video

The concept for the underwear is interesting, but what I like even more is that the large condom brand, Durex, is responsible for such an innovation. Supporting safe sex as something fun instead of something to do because there are scary things out there is a way better marketing strategy IMO.

Don’t Just 'Lean In': 10 Ways Women Entrepreneurs and Leaders Should Take Action Now

Don’t Just 'Lean In': 10 Ways Women Entrepreneurs and Leaders Should Take Action Now | Innovative Woman | Scoop.it

Now the founder of a soon-to-launch tech startup called AMP, it’s no surprise that I’ve found myself at events hosted by Girls in Tech LAWomen 2.0 and Dell’s Women Empowerment Network. It was at The Next Billion conference in San Francisco last month that I just couldn’t shake a common feeling I’d been having at these events. Something was missing (besides men)—there was a palpable lack of guardedness or need to prove, creating space instead for genuine laughter, authentic displays of vulnerability, and wisdom-packed lessons learned. The women on stage were not just embracing the strength and versatility of their femininity; they were sharing it without any apparent fear of attack.
