More Traditional Gender Bias in New Media

There is a theme in my universe today and it is that women are apparently pretty much permanently screwed when it comes to equality. Why else would these two items come up nearly back-to-back on Twitter?

I've already blogged about the gender gap in social media salaries, and constantly come across articles about women being under-represented or under-something-ed...to see these two items back to back today just made me pause and think "this is never going to change."

I mean, seriously--on one hand the world is telling us that there is no force more powerful than a legion of mommy bloggers...but when you come right down to it, how much of that actually translates to earning power or professional influence for women in new careers like blogging or community management?
