RohitVishal Kumar, Associate Professor at Xavier's Institute of Social Service and co-author of Colour Colour Everywhere, gives us an insight into fashion trends of 18th and 19th century England. "The English uniform during this period was dominated by red, and small boys (seen as little soldiers) wore pink (derived by boiling the red cloth). So, it will surprise many to know that Britain itself was responsible for the distinction of blue for boys and pink for girls. It is believed that with the growing naval power of Britain, people started dressing their children in sailor suits and naval uniforms, which were blue. And overtime, blue began dominating the colour spectrum for boys, and pink was relegated to girls.“
It wasn’t until the 1940s that retailers and manufacturers decided on pink for girls and blue for boys. Then the women’s lib movement of the '70s actually pushed retailers back to gender neutrality. But in the '80s, the once lace-deprived girls became new moms, and the division of pink and blue started anew.- Mark Wilson in Fastcodesign.com

“Women Beat Men at Art of Investing”Source: Headline, Miami Herald, reporting on a study by Profs. Terrance Odean and Brad Barber, UC Davis
“Parents still prefer to have a boy rather than a girl. One longstanding reason boys have been seen as a greater blessing has been that they are expected to become better economic providers for their parents’ old age. Yet it is time for parents to think again. Girls may now be a better investment.Girls get better grades in school than boys, and in most developed countries more women than men go to university. Women will thus be better equipped for the new jobs of the 21st century, in which brains count a lot more than brawn. … surveys show that women consistently achieve higher financial returns than men do. Furthermore, the increase in female employment in the rich world has been the main driving force of growth in the last couple of decades. Those women have contributed more to global GDP growth than have either new technology or the new giants, India and China.” Source:Economist, April 15, 2006, Leader, page 14
Around the globe since 1980, women have filled “two new jobs for every one taken by a man.” “Women are becoming more important in the global marketplace not just as workers, but also as consumers, entrepreneurs, managers and investors.” A couple of final assertions: (1) It is now agreed that “the single best investment that can be made in the developing world” is educating girls. (2) Also, surprisingly, nations with the highest female labor force participation rates, such as Sweden and the U.S., have the highest fertility rates; and those with the lowest participation rates, such as Italy and Germany, have the lowest fertility rates.

“Women speak and hear a language of connection and intimacy, and men speak and hear a language of status and independence. Men communicate to obtain information, establish their status, and show independence. Women communicate to create relationships, encourage interaction, and exchange feelings.” —Judy Rosener, America’s Competitive Secret
