How Sexism and Implicit Bias Hurt Girls and Women's Health

How Sexism and Implicit Bias Hurt Girls and Women's Health | Herstory | Scoop.it
Sometimes, the effects of sexism and implicit gender bias are difficult to show. However, in the case of women's health care, there's very little ambiguity. Women should be aware of what these problems look like, so that they can identify doctors who similarly understand them and can fairly diagnose and treat them.

Female Student Sparks Debate With 'I Don't Shave' Essay

Alexander Yakovlev's comment, June 2, 9:36 AM
This article seems controversial to me. Gasimova states how she wants to look natural and that there are nothing wrong with women hairs, yet she wears make up, uses deodorant, and does other things that is unnatural in nature. I hate how people choose to do only one part of their statements. It is the same way when women wants an equal rights, yet they don’t want to go work at the cement manufactory as men do. All this arguments are unfair. She doesn’t want to shave that’s her business, but I think that every country has their own standards for shaving. As it mentioned, she is Turkish, so in Turkey it’s probably fine for women not to shave, but she probably forgot that she is not in turkey and there are different standards in different countries. IF you don’t like it, go back to Turkey nothing holds you there.

What we know about false rape allegations

What we know about false rape allegations | Herstory | Scoop.it

For one thing, research has finally nailed down a consistent range for how many reports of rape are false: somewhere between 2 and 8 percent, which is a lot narrower than the 1.5 percent to 90 percent range of the past. But it's also shown that the cultural debate over rape shapes the reality of how rapes are reported and investigated.

THIS IS OUT OF HANDS IN MY MIND. THERE YOU GO GENDER DIFFERENCES. WOMEN CAN LIE ABOUT RAPE AND EVERYONE WILL BELIEVE HER, AND THAT’S CRAZY. I KNOW IT’S NOT SIMPLE AS THAT, BUT TO WORD IT SIMPLY THAT’S HOW IT LOOKS. THERE ARE TWO THINGS I TOOK FROM THIS ARTICLE: ONE IS THAT 2 TO 8 PERCENT OF WOMEN LYING ABOUT THEM BEING RAPED, AND SECOND IS THAT REALITY SHOWS THAT RAPE REPORTS THAT TURN OUT TO BE FALSE ARE MORE LIKELY TO INVOLVE STRANGERS AND VIOLENCE.

The Women Behind Erotic Fiction

The Women Behind Erotic Fiction | Herstory | Scoop.it
Warning: The captions of this post are excerpts from the featured writers' erotic literature and contain sexually explicit language.  Who are the people behind erotic fiction, those accounts of racy affairs and clandestine romances so often stashed away in secret, read in the privacy of one’s home?
Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

Quote: “Easy to imagine they would be foxy, leather-clad mistresses, whip in one hand, the other on the keyboard. I knew the reality would be very different. I wanted to see behind their pseudonyms and secret lives,” Woolfall said in a statement.


Why even begin with the nasty stereotype? Do men get that wrap?

Two Big Frauds: I Pretended to Be Pregnant at a Crisis Pregnancy Center

Two Big Frauds: I Pretended to Be Pregnant at a Crisis Pregnancy Center | Herstory | Scoop.it
In reality, however, they’re often the opposite: disseminating misinformation and, in the process, robbing women of their autonomy. And the best worst part of the situation is the fact that plenty of crisis pregnancy centers, in spite of their duplicity, are actually licensed community clinics, which gives them an added air of respectability.

So, in the interest of trying to understand what actually goes on in these inexplicably legal establishments, I decided to go undercover as a preggers patsy.
