I inadvertendly culled together a list of feminist articles this week — probably because I have been thinking about B-school admissions for women! Here’s a list of what I’ve been reading on the web this week:
- Keeping Your Maiden Name Could Be Strictly Business: An interesting article about the relative feminism of keeping your last name after marriage. It’s interesting that something that once denoted such a feminist statement has become a career move!
- The Fat Envelope Please: It’s no surprise that there has been an uptick in college applications, but what is surprising is that there are so many more females applying than men. Suddenly, what used to help get you into school (being a girl) has turned into what may keep you from getting in.
- Firebombing Clinics is Not That Funny: While we may disagree on the politics of Planned Parenthood, I’m hoping we can all agree that violence is never the answer. What exactly was putting lives in danger supposed to prove — that the clinic should take lives? A little strange, no?
- Young Consumers Switch Media 27 Times an Hour: As a social media intern for several different companies I constantly switch between platforms to get my news and keep up with the latest trend. These findings didn’t surprise me but they do make me concerned about what will happen to digital natives when they are forced to “uni-task”!
