Women and Smartphones

anonymous123's picture

 According to the New York Times article, "Smartphones Now Ringing for Women" by Laura M. Holson, there is an increasing number of women who are choosing to use smartphones. 

At the time the article was written, the number of women who were using smartphones was about 10.4 million, a number that was twice the previous year's. The number of users has undoubtedly grown since then. 

A large amount of the women who are buying these phones are moms trying to fulfill all their daily responsibilities. A hectic family schedule can be easier managed by a mother's access to her iphone or blackberry. In such a fast paced world, access to internet and e-mail at all times has become a necessity. As a mother, the need to be reachable at all times is easily understood. 

The fact that women make up such a large amount of smartphone users proves a sentiment that is rings true. Motherhood is a job.
