Well, this brings us to the end of the Women and Social Media series. I hope you have enjoyed reading all of the contributions as much as I have!
Today, the series ends with the wonderful Carol Roth, newly minted best-selling author of The Entrepreneur Equation. Carol’s take is extremely interesting. She argues that the dehumanization that Social Media causes makes it easier for sexism (and other offensive behaviors) to persist online. If nobody is really “real” to you, being crude, rude, or obnoxious is a lot easier to rationalize. Check out her post because it’s a great and thought provoking read!
