The Horrifying Women's Rights Injustice That Modern Feminism Forgot

The Horrifying Women's Rights Injustice That Modern Feminism Forgot | Colorful Prism Of Racism | Scoop.it

The Horrifying Women's Rights Injustice That Modern Feminism Forgot Mic Such an infuriating issue should attract the ire of the feminist community, but so far there are mostly crickets.


Recent legislation regarding the forced sterilizations performed on incarcerated women in California prisons evokes a muted time in U.S. history when sexist, racist, classist and ableist eugenics policies were orchestrated by the state.

'Pay to play' on the Web?: Net neutrality explained | Colorful Prism Of Racism | Scoop.it
Net neutrality explained. Will you have to pay more for Netflix, or a fee to be able to stream YouTube videos at full speed?
Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

If you've wondered what all the rukus is about, this neatly explains it all.

Don't kid yourself into thinking this won't have gender bias, race bias, etc. -- it will. This is an issue of the  99%.

President Obama Just Nominated the Very First Native American Woman For Federal Judge

President Obama Just Nominated the Very First Native American Woman For Federal Judge | Colorful Prism Of Racism | Scoop.it

Diane J. Humetewa, a member of the Hopi tribe and former U.S. attorney in Arizona, has beennominated to serve on the U.S. District Court for the district of Arizona as a federal judge. If confirmed, she would be the first active member of a Native American reservation, and first Native American woman to serve as a federal judge. Not only would this bring more diversity to the federal bench, but Arizona’s prominent Native community will finally be represented in a state that is infamous for ignoring Native issues.

Stand with Hillary to Protect Voting Rights

Stand with Hillary to Protect Voting Rights | Colorful Prism Of Racism | Scoop.it

The Supreme Court recently struck down crucial provisions of the Voting Rights Act – opening the door to widespread voter disenfranchisement – and yesterday Hillary Clinton called for quick action to guarantee the right to vote for every citizen in this country.


She noted that, “Anyone who says that racial discrimination is no longer a problem in American elections must not be paying attention.” She continued, “Congress should move quickly to pass legislation to replace those portions of the act that the court struck down.”

Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

Please use the form to stand with Hillary Clinton and demand that Congress take action to protect the right to vote.

I know this isn't "film or television," but this is important. 

Lola Jennings- Edquist's curator insight, August 20, 2013 6:21 AM

I'm so glad Trayvon's case didn't get five minutes of fame and then dissapear. The fact people realised how injust the trial was and are still stepping forward to speak out is incredibly important.

 

I would not only have a unit on laws (civics and citizenship), but also make mention of Trayvon Martin and other prolific cases on rasicm and rights during history units; as important cases like these need to be mentioned to educate!
