Movember Is More About Protecting Masculinity Than Protecting Men

Movember Is More About Protecting Masculinity Than Protecting Men | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it
Remember, remember, the scourge of Movember? We’re halfway through the advocacy month that calls for men to grow the manliest mustaches they can muster to
Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

"As November babies and gender critics, we take Movember as a personal affront.


There’s a school of thought that says any act in service of a good cause is a good act. So why do we hate Movember? Are we grumpy contrarians and feminist killjoys who hate things precisely because other people love them? Probably, but there are deeper reasons for our Movember naysaying, too. Below, we investigate in conversation."

Why Has Equality Eluded Us? Wrong message. Wrong messengers. | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it

Have you ever tried to convince someone to stop doing a bad thing but they just kept doing it? Well, that's exactly what's been happening to the female rights movement for over a hundred years.


Despite more than a century of women's rights movements and the passing of several important women's rights laws, males still don't view females as truly equal

Women are the Real Power Behind Social Media | Social Media Today

Women are the Real Power Behind Social Media | Social Media Today | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it

Never underestimate of the power of a woman, especially when combined with social media. From the number of active users on a social network to the frequency of their interaction with other users and brands, women are a powerful force in the social media realm. Curious how much power women hold on social media? 


Take a look at the infographic below from Finances Online for some possibly surprising statistics. While it is well-known that women dominate Pinterest, they also outnumber men on four of the other top six social networks: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Tumblr. However, men continue to account for the majority of LinkedIn’s users. In addition, 30% of women use social media multiple times a day, while only 26% men report using social media sites several times a day...

 I definitely don't agree to that. "Pink lego is the spade that can dig geek toys out of their sexist hole?

Deb Bailey's comment, January 2, 2014 1:11 PM
Very interesting article. Painting something pink and selling it to women will not work. Women are as geeky as men in many instances - but are invisible. Anyone who really sees that demographic and respects it will make a fortune.

Amen. "Life is better in Pink" is too superficial
