We want everyone in the LadiesOfHive community to succeed! We have seen some members, however, failing to properly cite the sources for images used in posts. This can cause trouble for your accounts, our community, and the Hive blockchain as a whole. Please review the following information and ask if there are any questions!
You can use any image PROVIDED THAT it is not copyrighted, and is free-for-use in a post. Your entry will be disqualified if you use a copyrighted image or a watermarked image. Plenty of free-to-use images can be found on these sites:
Even using images from sites such as these, though, it is a good idea to cite that the image is "free-for-use from Pixabay," or perhaps even give credit to the photographer (even though the site may say no such credit is necessary). Giving credit for the image will help to keep your account spotless and will help the photographer with more traffic to their page! If you took the photos, it's a good idea to say: "Photos by me" somewhere in your post!
At the bottom of every LadiesOfHive contest is credit to the photo that appears at the top:
Anyone can create such a clickable link in Markdown like this:
Please do not use images from Google, Pinterest, Flickr, etc., as those are not free-for-use! Please do not use images with a 'watermark' across them, as those are not free-for-use, either! Let's be a shining example to the rest of the blockchain in how to do things correctly! THANK YOU! 😘
PLEASE place the contest number #93 somewhere in your title!

This week, there is only one question
and we want to know:
When I was a child, I frequently heard: "You can't be a _________ because you're a girl." The blank could be any job or profession which had historically been held by males, such as lawyer, police officer, astronaut, CEO, etc. Jobs considered "acceptable" for females were things like school teacher, nurse, secretary, or sales clerk (of course, in a store owned a man). Society's "preferred" job for women was "housewife," and many men insisted that their wives not work outside the home.
Long ago, women were not allowed to wear pants, or vote. Even twenty or thirty years ago, few businesses seemed to be owned by women. Even today, many religions view God as a purely masculine entity, and women are not allowed to serve as priests/pastors because they are not made in the image of God as men are. When I came to the blockchain five years ago, many men asked, "You're a woman, why are you here?" as if women were not allowed in the world of crypto.
Sadly, changes to this sort of backwards thinking happen rather slowly as societies mature and attitudes begin to relax into more liberal ways of thinking.
When did you begin to see attitudes towards women changing in your life, and what do you think prompted those changes? Please give some examples.
The Hive blockchain uses UTC (Coordinated Universal Time).
