In Utah Valley magazine, the phrase "Women of Color" means women who bring color to life -- such as the women who work at the magazine.
But when the phrase "Women of Color" became the headline for Utah Valley editor Jeanette Bennett's column in the July/August issue, the famously snarky gossip site Gawker.com noted that the phrase has a more traditional meaning: Women of African-American, Asian, Hispanic or other ethnic heritage.
And the photo accompanying Bennett's column showed that the seven members of the Utah Valley staff have two things in common: They are all women, and they are all Caucasian.
"That was not intended as an ethnic comment," Bennett told Gawker's John Cook. "It was just clever wordplay. It was that women add color, and there's more than one meaning of color."
By the way, since the Gawker item ran Monday, the headline on Bennett's column has been changed in the magazine's online version. It now says "Colorful Women."
