Moreno, Kissing & Telling – Silent Porn Star

Moreno, Kissing & Telling – Silent Porn Star | Herstory | Scoop.it

Rita Moreno’s memoir has been released, and it might just be the dirtiest Hollywood biography yet. I’m not saying it’s full of erotic passages — but it’s so honest, dishing the dirt about the misogyny of the place and times, it sure doesn’t spare anyone’s feelings.

What A World Without Women's Studies Looked Like - Tenured Radical - The Chronicle of Higher Education

What A World Without Women's Studies Looked Like - Tenured Radical - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Herstory | Scoop.it

It’s easy to forget how important women’s studies was to reshaping what knowledge looked like. In part this is because there are fewer and fewer of us who remember what universities that were almost entirely run by and for men looked like. But the success of women’s studies has led to its transformation — into feminist studies, gender studies, queer studies — and to inevitable (as well as important) critiques of what those early years looked like. It’s also very difficult to convey how exciting those early years were — you read every book as it came out, you dived into an archive and practically every piece of evidence you could find on women was a potential article, and groups of faculty and graduate students formed spontaneously in methodology seminars.

Jaden Johnson's curator insight, March 15, 2013 7:38 PM

I think this website is a reliable source and would pass the CRAP test. The date published is very recent, and the website is a reliable source as well. This was very interesting to see the women's work force during the 1920's.

March for Women's Lives, April 1992

 

Some 750,000 women, men and children turned out for a NOW-organized march in Washington, D.C. They massed behind a banner that declared "WE WON'T GO BACK! WE WILL FIGHT BACK!" It was the largest march and rally ever held in the nation's capital. In addition to the leadership and delegations from every pro-choice organization and hundreds of celebrities, thousands of students from 600 campuses across the country participated.

The Truth About Masturbation (1916) NWS

The Truth About Masturbation (1916) NWS | Herstory | Scoop.it

Masturbation is often thought to be more harmful to boys than to girls, because of the direct drain upon the resources of the body in the case of the male through the loss of the seminal fluid. But when one considers the havoc wrought upon the more delicate nervous systems of young women it is not always so certain that they suffer less seriously from the practice than do young men.
