Ageing men are changing men? The debate on men and crime

Ageing men are changing men? The debate on men and crime | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it

Especially important to me is the possibility of change for older men. I have been involved in an ‘Ageing Men’s Group’ since the 1990s. Our project is precisely to explore how ‘ageing men are changing men’. One conclusion is that retirement or semi-retirement from waged work– has allowed us to redefine relationships with partners in ways that are more equal and also enabled more caring relationships with children, grandchildren, male friends and others. We have also learned that it is possible to redefine relationships between men, in less competitive and anxious ways. Influenced again by feminist ideas and practices, we have constructed a small male public in which it is possible to be less secretive about life’s problems and more accepting about our differences. Around the group there is also a network of friendships, sustained by meetings, phone calls or the Internet. I have learned, perhaps for the first time to trust other men, even in a collective context.

No, you can’t deny women their basic rights and pretend it’s about your ‘religious freedom.’ If you don’t like birth control, don’t use it. Religious freedom doesn’t mean you can force others to live by your own beliefs.

Perhaps I am too Utopian *wink* but I do believe that when we gain insight & understanding, we can put our hearts & ethics into action. I respect the hell out of Kola Boof. Admire her greatly. Even when her words sting. For behind them, truth rings. I'd like to think there are others out there who can be taught daily, and not just from some 'word a day' calendar.


Gracie talks with Kola about the messages in her book of poems, Nile River Woman.

'Victim' vs 'Survivor': Feminism and language | openDemocracy | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it

Rahila Gupta argues that the term ‘victim’ needs to be reclaimed by feminist politics; whilst 'survivor' is important because it recognises the agency of women, it focuses on individual capacity, but the notion of 'victim' reminds us of the stranglehold of the system.

Mormon feminist excommunicated | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it


By Jessica Ravitz, CNN


(CNN) –
 Kate Kelly, a lifelong Mormon who’s spearheaded a fight for equal opportunities for women in her church, was convicted of apostasy Monday and excommunicated from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.


The verdict, decided by a panel of male judges who convened Sunday, came to her by way of an e-mail sent by her former LDS Church bishop in Virginia, Mark Harrison. Kelly described the verdict as “exceptionally painful.”

I Was Sexually Assaulted By Someone I Thought Was A Feminist And An Ally

I Was Sexually Assaulted By Someone I Thought Was A Feminist And An Ally | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it

Years ago, I was in a serious relationship with someone I thought embodied the epitome of allyship.  He believed in collectivism, prison reform and feminist ideals.  When we first met we spent hours talking about social justice, anti-racism and how patriarchy was disappointingly widespread.  A scholar of African American Studies, I thought he was everything I had been looking for—a radical public intellectual and a partner. Six months into our relationship, we had an argument about his incomparable desire for biological children.  He said he required his female partner carry his children, but I was hesitant. Years of organizing with foster youth...

Vague Louisiana Bill Would Force Brain-Dead Pregnant Women to Serve as Incubators | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it

While shocking to any reasonable person’s conscience, these laws are surprisingly common. Thirty-one states have laws that restrict a pregnant woman’s ability to direct her doctor to remove life-sustaining treatment. In states like Texas, even if a pregnant woman explicitly says that she doesn’t want life-sustaining treatment, her express wishes can be ignored based on the state’s claimed interest in the fetus she is carrying.
