Spicie.com – The move toward women speaking for women
Posted by mandyf on August 29, 2012
If you are a woman, you tend to notice a little quicker than many men that there are few women who are involved in the media that are reporting on issues related to women. That is not to say the media isn’t as filled with women as it has ever been, but it is to say they are often not getting the opportunity to use their knowledge and perspective that can only come from being a woman. More often than not, women are not getting the hot button topics even if they may be the best equipped to effectively cover them.
There are myriad reasons for this, mostly it is still related to aged stereotypes. Women can speak up, however. Women can make their voices heard. Spicie.com is a step in that direction. Where the media leaves off, marginalizing or ignoring the voice of women, Spicie steps in. Spicie is made up of real women with real opinions and knowledge that are unafraid to speak out. They may show a view you don’t always agree with, but you cannot dismiss those views offhand either because they are the views of people that have lived the issues. They are not spectators by any means.
They may not be the loudest voice in the move for women’s equality, not yet at least, but they are one of the more intelligent voices to be found. There is no pandering to sides. There is no skating around the tough topics. It is straightforward and sometimes cutting to the bone. If you have not had a chance to check them out and hear what real women from all walks of life have to say about what is going on in the world around them, take a few moments. You may be surprised what you learn.
