She then convinces them that men are all horrible because female superheroes aren’t as well known as male superheroes, even asking Blossom to name some to where her only answer is Wonder Woman.

Deanna Dahlsad's comment, January 21, 5:01 PM
@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.

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.

George Bernard Shaw's Politics Of Gender Still Apply Today | Herstory | Scoop.it

The very real economic component of gender disparity, of how male privilege affects women, continues to be heard in serious talks about modern sex work and feminism today. The issue of censorship limiting discussions of the same — as well as discussions and depictions of truth, sexuality, and other taboos — also continues.

Photography meets feminism: Australian women photographers 1970s–80s

Photography meets feminism: Australian women photographers 1970s–80s | Herstory | Scoop.it

Robyn Stacey, Untitled, 1981

 

During this period of the late twentieth century, photography helped feminism and feminism helped photography. On the one hand, feminists used the highly informative and accessible medium of photography to raise awareness of critical social issues. On the other hand, photographic artists embraced feminist themes as a way of making their practice less esoteric and more engaged with contemporary life. This productive exchange between feminism and photography fostered a range of technical innovations and critical frameworks that radically transformed the direction of visual culture in Australia.

The Long Struggle for Wage Equality for Women and Republican Road Blocks | Nomadic Politics | Herstory | Scoop.it
Wage equality for women has been a long and difficult road, dating the Roosevelt era and before. Down through the years, step by step, progress against pay discrimination has plodded along, despite the numerous obstacles. However, that struggle came to an abrupt halt last April when Republican Senators decided to shut down legislation to curb pay discrimination based on gender. But the question is: will they pay a price in November?

...There are websites that write about our band just because they know that it will get traffic to their website because people will go on the comments and say, "This band sucks and I hope the lead singer gets raped and killed." There's nothing in the world that makes you feel more vulnerable than when you're trying to retain any semblance of your personhood and there's people on the internet that are just... Who are these people that are just sitting behind their keyboard talking about how they hope I get raped? We live in a world where men are so entitled to women's bodies that when they don't get what they want they go on killing sprees. And yet, everyone chalks it up to some mental illness and doesn't want to talk about how violence against women is a mental illness. Because we live in...
