Different Doesn’t Mean Inferior

February 21, 2012 § 1 Comment

Why is it when women step outside of expected roles it’s called empowerment but when men do it, it’s comedy?  We women want to be judged on our individual merits; however, how about extending the same courtesy to the guys?  This article raises just that point looking at the increased trend of men joining and becoming active in the PTA.

In a blog piece over at the Huffington Post, writer Karin Kamp takes on the recent criticism that women entrepreneurs are creating a “pink ghetto” based around lifestyle, fashion, and children-focused businesses.  Is this “embarrassing”?

Yet, this article highlights the work of a female entrepreneur who built her own painting business and now mentors other young women.  This hardly seems to be a “pink ghetto” here.

In the end, it’s all about the individual.  What does he or she bring to the table?  What skills do they contribute in their circles of influence?  What is their story? Just because it’s different doesn’t mean that the impact is less valuable.

What’s your story?  Have you seen this in action?
