Dr. Rhodes spoke in Bangkok, Thailand on March 1-3, 2016. She presented her paper entitled, “Women and Dating: Moving Toward Relationship Empowerment through Online Dating and New Technology” at the 7th Annual Women’s Leadership and Empowerment Conference hosted by the Tomorrow People Organization.
Women in developed countries often bemoan their dating opportunities. Their complaints about less than quality partners and their desires for a career and a relationship lead these women to forget that the have the luxury to choose their relationships. In comparison to women in countries with limited access to the Internet or other technology, women in first world countries have the ultimate power and freedom to create the life they want. Perhaps nowhere else in the world is this sentiment more embedded in the culture than in the United States – yet women continuously give up their power and freedom while dating; often curating their lives to please their partners. This talk will discuss the current trends and research in online dating and concretely address the various reasons why women continue to give up their power in this arena and discuss the growing list of opportunities that online dating and technology present to help women reclaim their authenticity and power while exploring healthy relationships. Dr. Rhodes will also explore how these new technologies may help women in less developed countries begin to question the status quo and provide educational opportunities to help women learn to navigate an ever expanding global network of relationship options. Finally, special attention will also be paid to how technology can be used to help women with a significant history of relational trauma begin a safe process of exploring their future relationship options.
