Previously, I had mentioned that I was expanding the scope of this blog as a way to share my other interests and activities. One of these is to improve my writing skills while also finding an outlet to express my thoughts on feminism and gender equality. In particular, I am interested in the way women are portrayed in the media.
I submitted a pitch for a blog post to the editor at Gender Focus, which eventually resulted in a commentary on Beyonce's Run The World (Girls) video and song. More recently I wrote a critique on the portrayal of women in TV commercials, specifically household cleaning products. This was a big step for me, and I'm hoping to do more writing soon.
