Where I file and list all the good stuff for you:

- Latina's Magazine top 9 must-reads of 2012 here

- Cheryl Sandberg on Gender Stereotypes in the Workplace:

“We hold ourselves back in ways both big and small, by lacking self-confidence, by not raising our hands, and by pulling back when we should be leaning in,” Sandberg writes in the book, called “Lean In.” - via NYTimes

"As a woman becomes more successful, she is less liked, and as a man becomes more successful, he is more liked, and that starts with those T-shirts." She blasted managers who unconsciously reflect stereotypes when they judge women's performance, saying: "She's great at her job but she's just not as well liked by her peers," or: "She's a bit aggressive." via the Guardian

- I found this so interesting when I studied it for my Anthropology major - Drug Doses and the Gender Gap - via NYTimes

- Simply brilliant: "If you haven’t brought in someone with an understanding of basic marketing principles who simultaneously studies how new technologies are changing human behavior, then you are likely flying blind and will get caught up in the wrong metrics." Brian Solis, Without a social media strategy you are wasting your time

"The Myth of Machismo: An Everyday Reality For Latin Women"

Machismo has been on my mind lately, and so while doing some cultural research I came accross this great article in the St. Thomas Law Review, published Thursday, June 26, 2003.

Machismo: An Everyday Reality

I also discovered Marianismo

"Marianismo is the inverse or female equivalent of Machismo in Latin American folk culture, that is it is the embodiment of the feminine rather than the masculine. It is the cult of feminine superiority. Evelyn Stevens states: "it teaches that women are semi divine, morally superior to and spiritually stronger than men."[1] The ideas within marianismo are that of feminine passivity and sexual purity, but are not exclusive to these ideas. There is power in marianismo that stems from the female ability to produce life. This term supposedly derives from Catholic beliefs of Mary as both a virgin and a madonna."

I never even realized there was a term for this idealization of women in the Latin community.
The Maria Paradox by Rosa Maria Gill and Carmen Inoa Vasquez, I'm adding this one to my booklist right now!
