Gender and the Changing Workplace (UPDATE) » Sociological Images

Gender and the Changing Workplace (UPDATE) » Sociological Images | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it

Last week, Stephen Colbert discussed gender and work with guest Liza Mundy. The clip quickly hits on several trends and patterns that sociologists highlight when studying gender in the workplace: the pay gap, women disproportionately working in the helping professions, the impacts of large economic shifts that have reduced the prominence of manufacturing, and the tendency of men to flee particular jobs once large numbers of women begin to do them. It’s a brief overview of many of the major dynamics influencing the experiences of men and women in the workplace today.

Honoring Military Servicewomen Month

Honoring Military Servicewomen Month | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it

UniteWomen.org

 

The Petition begins:

 

Designate August as National Military Servicewomen’s Month.

In much the same way that the contributions of civilian women have not received their proper recognition in the annals of American history, the contributions of those women who have risen to the call of duty in service to their country have also been largely overlooked. The President and these committees can play a part in rectifying this oversight by doing their part in honoring these womens' service, sacrifice and devotion to their country.

Citizenship for Zygotes – so what?

Citizenship for Zygotes – so what? | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it

by JKL, Pointed Postcards

 

The robo-partisans want to extend 14TH Amendment constitutional rights to zygotes: citizenship for the fertilized egg. Big deal.

 

I can own a gun – lots of guns. I can shoot and kill a citizen who breaks in to my house or scares me on the street.  I have the gun: the perception of threat is mine. The NRA and ALEC tell me so.

 

I guess if we recognized rape pregnancies as intruders, or any untimely pregnancy as scary – citizen or not – I should have the right to defend myself. The perception of threat should be mine.

 

The catch? I think the robo-partisans would have to accept my rights if only doctors used a tiny tiny tiny little gun to end the pregnancy, preferably one purchased at an NRA - ALEC member outlet.

Not A Feminist? Caitlin Moran Wants To Know Why Not : NPR

excerpt Fresh Air from WHYY

 

LISTEN TO THE STORY

 

 

 

 

On becoming a woman


"The feminine role models I had were the cast of Dynasty and Dallas, and I just found that terrifying. I just remember sitting there sadly going, 'I'm just not gonna make it.' Literally, it was like being a woman was a boat that was leaving a dock and it was already too far away for me to jump. I mean how could I — this fat girl from Wolverhampton, you know, who had no clothes, I didn't have a coat, I was wearing a dressing gown for a coat, a tartan dressing gown — look like Alexis [Carrington Colby on Dynasty] or beautiful Cybill Shepherd in Moonlighting?

 

"I would cling to people like Doris in Fame and it was kind of like, 'But it's OK, her personality will get her through. I know what, I'll have a personality instead, that'll be useful.' ... I just wanted to be smooth and thin and have beautiful glossy hair and lovely clothes, and be able to walk in heels. And I thought once I did all that stuff that my life would begin."

 

On pop culture, clothing and women


"In the early '90s, it was grunge, everybody was fully clothed. Alanis Morissette was one of the biggest artists in the world, never wore makeup, wearing Doc Marten boots, and then the Spice Girls turn up, and suddenly it all looks a bit burlesque, suddenly they're the biggest band in the world. ... And as you go all the way through the '90s, the clothes just fall off the women until you get to the year 2000, and Britney Spears is just wearing a snake." [MORE]

Texas Launches Modern Day Poll Tax

Texas Launches Modern Day Poll Tax | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it

by BRENTIN MOCK,

Colorlines via

readersupportednews.com

 

Earlier this week, Attorney General Eric Holder declared in his address to the NAACP national convention in Houston what many voting rights advocates had been saying for months: That the photo voter ID law passed in Texas is a poll tax. Determining whether voter ID laws are as unconstitutional as poll taxes won’t be up to him, though. That honor goes to the U.S. Supreme Court justices who lately have been signaling they may be ready to gut the 1965 Voting Rights Act.

 

What this means is that a legal challenge to a voter ID law in Texas could be the trigger for the demise of the constitutional act that made it possible for people of color to vote in much of the country. Rightwing pundits have all but conceded this week’s US District Court hearing over Texas’s voter ID law to the Department of Justice. There’s agreement on the left and the right that Texas didn’t do a good enough job proving that the law has no discriminatory purpose nor effect. Experts have testified that almost 1.4 million Texans could be disenfranchised due to lacking ID.

[PLEASE read this rich timeline of the Texan legal struggle to keep persons of color from voting and to redistrict them out of influence. And never forget, voter suppression always effects women a little more, because so many of us change our names, makeing even valid ID invalid in these times. - jkl]
