1. Hollywood is starting to re-examine the stereotypical bad feminist boss — but jury’s still.

Often they are conceived of as good at their jobs but bad at being human, like Miranda Priestly of “The Devil Wears Prada.” Though they are pitched as evidence of feminist progress, they don’t act like feminists. And their preferred targets are young women who hope, some day, to claim power, too.

The ruthlessly competent ladyboss gets a bad rap. But perhaps the more troublesome archetype is that of the bright young woman who rises to power without compromising her values at all. She makes it seem as if all of the problems of power can be neatly resolved by one plucky individual.

2. Airdrop is the new location based social networking app for teenagers.

3. Raw and honest depiction of what pregnancy feels like.

…pregnancy is that it is a lot like flying economy on a long-haul flight. It is so all-consuming, exhausting and uncomfortable that you can’t actually believe it will ever be over. But then it is; you walk away and never think about it again, because the ultimate destination is a lot more interesting than the journey.

Nothing reveals the gap between social-media fantasy and reality more strikingly than pregnancy, so Amy Schumer has been an overdue antidote to all of the above

4. More respect for BBC as their privacy terms are written in plain English.

5. Is it shameful to be a single woman?

6. Using Linkedin and IG apps  for user research – smart!

Every writer should know where his or her readers are and how best to reach them. Owning your distribution channels is the single most important thing a writer can do to reach the right audience. Moreover, it helps when you’re speaking to an audience that can, in return, generate story ideas and give you tips.

7. Gun influencers!?!? And majority of them are females!
