Seduction, Witches & Long Hair.

Seduction, Witches & Long Hair. | Herstory | Scoop.it

"Witches stand in opposition to puritanical fears that encourage the repression of our natural sexuality, representing rebellion, and freedom. 

The witch is a woman who is empowered in the harmonic convergence of her own erotic and spiritual energies. Who wouldn’t be drawn to her? "

 

It happened to me once, in a little Indian village bordering Bangladesh and tucked into the foothills of the Himalayas. Sneaking past armed guards into wilderness forbidden to tourists, I left modernity behind and entered into a remote part of our planet where backward superstitions ruled.

 

How dare I subject myself to such danger? The locals scolded. But they didn’t alert me to the danger of neighboring tribes descending from the hills to hack us with machetes, as the ministry of tourism had. Instead, the village women were trying to protect me from being falsely accused of witchcraft!

Photo of the Day: “Women: Like men, only cheaper.” | Herstory | Scoop.it

his “Women: Like men, only cheaper” image should look familiar–we’ve sarcastically used to“celebrate” Equal Pay Day in the past. But an Australian tech executive was all-too-serious when he included it as a slide during his talk at a tech conference recently. Evan Thornleye explained how “forward-thinking” people such as himself can take advantage of the wage gap by hiring qualified women “for relatively cheap.”

This caught my eye and I am saving it for my critical thinking class -  my question to my students this quarter is: what do we believe now that will be completely refuted in the future?  We used to think being the girl friend or wife was the ultimate success.  

So what will change in another twenty years?
