Crystal Smith is a social media and marketing writer who has spent many years working with non-profit agencies seeking gender equality and an end to discrimination against women. After being regularly disappointed by the film and television offerings available to her two young sons, she decided to write about the impact of kids’ popular culture on young boys.
Crystal is a member of the Professional Writers Association of Canada. She has an Honours B.A. in History and French, and a Master of Library and Information Science degree, both from the University of Western Ontario.
When not writing or blogging about boys and pop culture, she provides pro bono social media marketing services to the Halton Women’s Centre. She also works as the volunteer Blog Editor for The Pixel Project.
