Women and Smiling

I have been reading the responses to the blog entry on women and smiling.

As I say in my book. I really think they are just incredibly uncomfortable. When men see a smiling women, they know she isn't a threat. A women who is not smiling is troubling. Men as a gender don't read the subtle differences in facial expressions. They have difficulty discerning the 57 types of smiles. I am speaking on body language and first impressions at a Women of Color conference in New York next month and one of the tactics I will be discussing is choosing to smile or not smile.
