When the hashtag #IamFeminist appeared in the Twitterverse, I was keen to jump onboard. As someone who has always maintained that 'feminism' means nothing other than 'equality', I felt that it was important to express my position and show solidarity. Literally, within seconds, my feed started to twitch with responses. Clearly this was touching a nerve in the collective Twitter psyche of those who believe that 'feminism' is a dirty word and inherently implies that all self proclaimed feminists are many-headed-misandry-hydras.
That Twitter has recently become a place where these kinds of view seem to sanctioned by those able to scream into the echo chamber led me to questions whether or not women should boycott Twitter altogether. Here's a blog I wrote with some thoughts on this.
As many of you know, I'm a great advocate of gender equality, particularly when it comes to the field of business. Having spent most of my career in male-dominated industries and often being the only woman sitting around the boardroom table, I have had to learn the hard way how to climb the often greasy pole to success.
I was pleased, therefore, to have this article published in We Are The City, '5 things women must learn to be successful'.
I hope that you enjoy it and I'm keen to hear your thoughts.
Here is a 5 minute sample of an hour long live interview I did, talking about the value of PR.
