After much debate, I’ve settled on asking you all to think about this:
I’m currently a contributing writer and co-editor of the University of Michigan’s Her Campus branch. For those of you unfamiliar with the site, Her Campus is an online magazine geared toward college women, covering topics that range from fall fashion trends to birth control pills to frat party etiquette, and so on. We write under the motto, “A Collegettie’s Guide to Life.” Though Her Campus generates contributions from male writers, it’s a female dominated publication.
Though female writers have made a mark for themselves in the world of journalism, when we cover such female-oriented topics, do you think men will ever take us seriously enough and respect us as much as they would respect their male counterparts who cover the more politically-charged “hard” news?
Just something to think about!
