There are so many online communities for women that can be used for social networking that it has made it much easier for women worldwide to find new friends, get new ideas and read fascinating stories with one another. Regular online communities are nice. When women are around only each other, they are more fearless in what they speak of and they are not ashamed to be expressing themselves freely. Women’s social networks help ladies freely express themselves without fear of what a man might say.
The reason we bring men is because in our society, men can talk about many things much more freely than women. For example, a man can openly talk about sex and his sexual escapades no matter what he has done; if a woman even mentions it, then she is immediately shunned and considered a whore. Our society is very gender biased not only terms of sexual conversation, but ideas of power and many other things. In a women only social network, these biases may still exist, but it is only a fraction of what we have in other communities online and in the world for that matter. The result of this is that the women who wanted to express themselves freely began to make exclusively female communities on the web so that way they can avoid stereotypes or negative prejudices.
If you were to look at a mixed community for women and men on the internet and a women’s social network online, you would notice women will speak only on certain topics; usually they are more general or only discuss topics that are acceptable for women to speak on such as dancing, cooking and the rest of the “common woman” interests. Yet in a women’s only network, there is no shame; women will gladly talk about anything from everyday life to sex and sharing their stories. They do it because they know no one will judge them for no reason and this way they can meet new friends, learn new things and sometimes get new ideas.
