Ilyse Hogue on The Daily Show: Reproductive Health Care Hypocrisy | Herstory | Scoop.it
We see hypocrisy around on reproductive health care every day, but this The Daily Show segment with Ilyse Hogue reveals a new twist on a double standard that you've probably never heard of before.

Zap! Pow! Snap! "WonderWomen" at the Katherine Nash Gallery

Zap! Pow! Snap! "WonderWomen" at the Katherine Nash Gallery | Herstory | Scoop.it

She has superhuman strength, her wounds heal instantly and her collection of weaponry includes the Lasso of Truth and a razor-sharp tiara to throw at her enemies. Who wouldn't like to be Wonder Woman, at least occasionally? Okay, the bustier, tight blue panties, and high-heeled boots might be a little uncomfortable, but her contradictory qualities - part super hero, part pinup girl - have mesmerized us since she came on the scene in 1941.

 

No wonder the enduring pop culture icon makes a great focal point for a group exhibition at the University of Minnesota's Katherine E. Nash Gallery entitled "WonderWomen." Co-sponsored by the University of Minnesota, the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and the Film Society of Minneapolis St. Paul, the show features work by women artists from around the world who are inspired or influenced by comics, animation or popular culture.

@Laura Brown I can't agree with you. Wearing shirts about guns & violent threats isn't the answer to rape culture. In fact, this stinks more of rape culture than anything. It's about a man's property; not respect or a woman's value.
Laura Brown's comment, January 21, 6:23 PM
I'm reading it as more bluster or humour based. But the tone of protecting daughters is still important. People don't protect something or someone they don't value.
Laura Brown's comment, January 21, 6:25 PM
Maybe it's a Canada/ US difference too. Not many people here actually have a gun to wave around. So here a shirt like that would not be seen as serious versus humour or propaganda.

Lorraine Hansberry (1965)

Lorraine Hansberry (1965) | Herstory | Scoop.it

Lorraine Hansberry was just 34 when she died. And though her life was brief, her writings on race in America left a decades-long impact. 


Born on Chicago’s South Side, an area of the country as segregated as some parts of the American South, Ms. Hansberry was raised in a socially conscious household by parents (Carl and Nannie) who were active in the struggle for civil rights. Her father, a wealthy real estate broker, fought Chicago’s restrictive housing covenants (agreements made by realtors throughout Chicago not to sell property in certain neighborhoods to black families), His fight went to the U.S. Supreme Court where in Hansberry v. Lee (1940), the justices sided with Mr. Hansberry declared the covenants unconstitutional.

Wouldn’t A Wife Be Great!?

Wouldn’t A Wife Be Great!? | Herstory | Scoop.it

Heather L. sent us a link to a business called The Occasional Wife. It’s slogan: “The Modern Solution To Your Busy Life.” The store sells products that help you organize your home and office, and provides all kinds of helpful services to support your personal goals.


There are two things worth noting here:


First, the business relies on and reproduces the very idea of “wife.”  As the website makes clear, wives are people who (a) make your life more pleasurable by taking care of details and daily life-maintenance (such as running errands), (b) organize special events in your life (such as holidays), and (c) deal with work-intensive home-related burdens (such as moving), all while perfectly coiffed and in high heels.


But, the business only makes sense in a world where “real” wives are obsolete.  Prior to industrialization, most men and women worked together on home farms.  With industrialization, all but the wealthiest of families relied on (at least) two breadwinners. In the 1950s, the era to which this business implicitly harkens, Americans were bombarded with ideological propaganda praising stay-at-home wives and mothers (in part to pressure women out of jobs that “belonged” to men after the war).  Since then, women have increasingly participated in wage labor.  Today, the two parent, single-earner family is only

Every Internet Conversation With Dudes, Ever

Every Internet Conversation With Dudes, Ever - The Archipelago - Medium

We all know That Dude. He is the destroyer of discourse, the derailer of discussion. He is the troll that lives under your Twitter feed. He is the unsilent-but-deadly flatulence of Facebook. He ruins everything.


In particular, he can’t resist ruining a conversation about feminism. He lives in fear that a woman discussing feminism on the internet will be tragically deprived of his very important viewpoint. Thus, as a service to That Dude — and to you — I have collected every argument he has ever made or ever will make, ever. Here they are. You’re welcome, and I’m sorry.
