The backlash against feminism aims to preserve the 'manosphere'

The backlash against feminism aims to preserve the 'manosphere' | Coffee Party Feminists | Scoop.it

[A]nti-feminist backlash occurs not when women have achieved equality but when there is any possibility that we might. It's "a pre-emptive strike" and here, I would say, it's been going on for the past five years. This is a strange time to be talking of backlashes when we have just seen several successful feminist campaigns, but we need to understand the scale of what is happening. I am glad there is a woman's face on the money. But can we have more actual money? Equal pay?


The reality is that in public life, politics, business and media, we are grossly under-represented. There are constant attacks on abortion, a push to make women dependent on partners – Iain Duncan Smith's "belief" – and women are disproportionally hit by cuts. The icons of the day are mute and "respectable" – such as Sam Cam and Kate Middleton.


The backlash started in the early 90s when to be laddish and un-PC was a bit a naughty. Liam Gallagher, described brilliantly by his brother Noel as "a man with a fork in a world of soup", was its pin-up.


Right now we are dealing with something worse: a rightwing establishment and its lackeys who have managed to convince themselves they are mavericks and who are openly anti-feminist.

Jody MacPherson's curator insight, November 2, 2014 1:25 PM

Suzanne Moore: Those in power are legislating away women's rights at work, making sure women are not promoted, maintaining a status quo in which half the population are silent and invisible. Internet trolls are but fleas on the mangy coat of the backlash. In popular culture as in politics, as Faludi wrote, this is not an organised and centralised conspiracy. Its workings are "encoded and internalised, diffuse and chameleonic".


And meanwhile in Canada, income splitting introduced by Harper says, "it's okay married women that you're not making as much as your husband, we'll let you manipulate the books and shuffle around the money so that he doesn't have to pay his fair share of taxes and you look like you're doing much better than you actually are!"


Oh happy day. The manosphere wins again.

Coffee Party Feminists & Lunch with Louden are both parts of the BE THE MEDIA Project by Coffee Party USA

Coffee Party Feminists & Lunch with Louden are both parts of the  BE THE MEDIA Project by Coffee Party USA | Coffee Party Feminists | Scoop.it

The Coffee Party USA membership believes that money-in-politics is the keystone issue in this republic's democracy today. WOMEN are now targets for special interests that use the influence of their political contributions to impose their religious, economic, and political will. Coffee Party Feminists is a part of the BE THE MEDIA project. It is intended to share evidence of special interest targeting and to report on actions being taken across America to defend and restore women's rights.

 

When you JOIN the Coffee Party or RENEW your membership, you become one of the grass roots funders of our BE THE MEDIA Project.

“Your Women Are Oppressed, But Ours Are Awesome”: How Nicholas Kristof And Half The Sky Use Women Against Each Other

“Your Women Are Oppressed, But Ours Are Awesome”: How Nicholas Kristof And Half The Sky Use Women Against Each Other | Coffee Party Feminists | Scoop.it

Racialicious - the intersection of race and pop culture


I just saw the most problematic image on Facebook.


To me, this photo represents how blithely and blindly women from the Global North allow ourselves to be used as (actual and metaphorical) weapons of war against women from the Global South. In fact, that offensive caption isn’t significantly different from comments I’ve been hearing this week like, “These are countries where women have very little value."

House Republican Spending Bill Would Allow Employers To Opt Out Of Birth Control Coverage

House Republican Spending Bill Would Allow Employers To Opt Out Of Birth Control Coverage | Coffee Party Feminists | Scoop.it
WASHINGTON -- House Republicans included a so-called "conscience clause" in the government funding bill in a plan they approved early Sunday. The House voted 231-192 on a bill that would delay much of the 2010 health care overhaul for a year.

The More Things Change, The More They Stay The Same: Let's Talk About Domestic Violence

The More Things Change, The More They Stay The Same: Let's Talk About Domestic Violence | Coffee Party Feminists | Scoop.it

For today, we don't even have the right to enjoy our homes, our private spaces, without fearing violence, rape, or worse. And when we dare to point that out, we are not merely dismissed, we are punished.

So many of us are still having to say, "That's life."

The GOP's Witch Hunt

The GOP's Witch Hunt | Coffee Party Feminists | Scoop.it

by ANNE LLEWELLYN BARSTOW, RH Reality Check

 

"Having a female body was the factor most likely to render one vulnerable to being called a witch...the truth about the majority of persons accused of [witchcraft]: old, unattractive, disliked, and FEMALE"

— Witchcraze: A New History of European Witch Hunts by Anne Llewellyn Barstow

 

The past few months the GOP has waged a war on women that places them firmly in bed with religious lobbyists, treating women like they are subhuman all in the name of patriarchal religion.  Bah humbug.
