#YesAllWomen, but Not Really: How Feminism Leaves the Disabled Behind - Daily Beast | Women & society | Scoop.it
Unwittingly or not, modern feminism is leaving its disabled sisters out of the discussion.
Jaqueline Urania MoraesVarjao's insight:

According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, a staggering 80 percent of disabled women are sexually assaulted, and the rates are even higher for women with cognitive disabilities. Disabled women are, in general, 40 percent more likely to be violently treated—usually by their male partners, but also by caregivers and family—than non-disabled women."

15 Women Who Rock Social Media at Top Tech Companies

15 Women Who Rock Social Media at Top Tech Companies | Women & society | Scoop.it

To honor women who “rock” the social web, we’ve been publishing a list for the past 4 years and  2014 marks the 5th. That’s about 100 social media pros we’ve featured ranging from marketers to business owners to those using social media to advance a cause.

 

Many of those honorees have reached out to share they’ve benefitted in many ways from those lists ranging from general notoriety to career advancement.

 

During research within my own personal network for the 2014 list, I noticed an impressive group of social media marketing pros in the tech space that represent some of the top brands from IBM to Adobe to Intel.

 

This group of 15 women represents some of the talented executives and practitioner social media smarties that me or my team at TopRank Online Marketing have had the good fortune to work with, collaborate with on projects or meet (IRL or virtually).

 

For anyone interested in advice from some of the most successful executives and managers in the social media marketing world, this is a great group to follow....
