Girls are the New Boys (How Girls are the New Players)

Gone is the “women should be seen and not heard” mentality of past generations.  Modern women are running companies, teaching in universities, and saving lives— all with a fresh coat of nail polish and lipstick.  As young, educated collegiettes, we expect nothing short of success and happiness in our educational and professional lives.  We are able to maintain these high expectations because of the fight that our mothers and grandmothers won for our gender.  

As 21st Century women, we are picking up the torch of a new fight.  The derogatory phrases egging us on this time around are “whore,” “slut,” and “skank.”  Yes, women can be successful in the workplace, but the second the drive and high-set goals that lie beneath this success appear in a non-professional setting, it becomes a negative attribute.
