Hashtag Activism and the Lie of 'Solidarity'

Hashtag Activism and the Lie of 'Solidarity' | Readin', 'Ritin', and (Publishing) 'Rithmetic | Scoop.it
Twitter has come under fire from mainstream journalists and institutional gatekeepers, derided as "toxic" and a "poisonous well." But this opposition to Twitter—to its strengths as a democratizing platform—is as old as media itself.

Men Surpass Women in Publishing of Research

Men Surpass Women in Publishing of Research | Readin', 'Ritin', and (Publishing) 'Rithmetic | Scoop.it

"Despite years of progress for women in science, men continue to dominate scientific publishing in nearly every country, according to new research in the journal Nature.

Not only do men publish far more research than their female colleagues, but papers with men as the dominant author are more likely to be cited by other researchers."

Who was Kathy Keeton? For starters, Keeton was Guccione’s longtime girlfriend and eventual wife. But she ought to be remembered for far more than that.

This woman ought to be among the largest names in feminism and publishing -- and an icon of the 1970s - 1980s.

Romance and pornography : Popular Romance Project

Romance and pornography : Popular Romance Project | Readin', 'Ritin', and (Publishing) 'Rithmetic | Scoop.it

I teach an undergraduate seminar on “Gender, Sexuality, and Popular Culture” with a unit on the romance genre. This year, for the first time ever, the class consists entirely of women. Also new this year is an exercise we invented of an online, collaborative romance narrative. One question that came up in our writing experiment was how, when, and why to include sex scenes. We talked a lot about depictions of sexuality in romance fiction, as well as in the sex-saturated corridors of popular culture. How are the love scenes in romance different from those in pornography or erotica?

 

...I’m interested in the notion that a feminist is a woman who writes—a woman who dares explore ideas and fantasies that run contrary to patriarchal scripts for feminine docility, submissiveness, and sexual passivity. These scripts are still alive in the impossible contradictions and double standards my students report: be sexy but also pure, demands the culture. If guys sleep around it’s a sign of mastery and control, but if you do it you’re a slut.
