Women's Day on your phone – top 10 sites and apps for the fairer sex
Men are from Mars and women are from Venus? This probably doesn't have much to do with reality, but that's what they used to say. However, regardless of stereotyping and social sexual segregationism, most women may actually want to immerse themselves in the world of other apps than their male counterparts. Who run the world? Girls! Who run the world? Girls!
There has long been a debate in the public space about the marginalization of women and the sexualization of individuals. This applies both to the pattern of defining a woman's role as a typical housewife and to the patterns of masculinity that most of the younger generation would even call toxic. The discussion is fervent as the discourse winds its way through the topics of patriarchy, political feminists, left-wing circles, right-wing circles, corporate circles, church circles and any other circles you can imagine. One can get the impression that the topic is being over-exploited and blurred, with parties polarizing each other without coming to a consensus.
Fortunately though we are seeing more and more powerful women in IT, and every year Forbes also reports on the 100 most influential in the world, reminding us of their impact. Undoubtedly, there are apps that will be more useful for women, and here are some of them.
