Be A Gender Avenger - Don't Accept It. Change It.

Be A Gender Avenger  - Don't Accept It.  Change It. | Women and Girls in the World | Scoop.it
Point it out - be a Gender Avenger!
Stephanie Cornett's insight:
Panel of all men? Conference with no women speakers? Book of essays with no women authors? Do something, something simple: Point it out. Opportunities – sadly – abound.  How could that be in 2013?  They can be found among iconic institutions and in seemingly small bore infractions.   Seeing can be believing.  Everywhere possible when women are unrepresented or underrepresented, a gender avenger will take note, take action or ask someone else to take action. No excuses.  This effort requires speaking out even when it is uncomfortable.   Try it.  The outcome could make you smile or groan.  Either way you will have a story to tell that could influence others.  ~ from website

Stephanie Cornett's insight:

"In addition, however, to the extraordinary presumption and paternalism inherent in the position that you – whoever you are – should have more control than the pregnant woman over her reproductive future, is the absolutely, unequivocally impossible enforcement situation that this policy would create. So, we criminalize abortion but leave in place exceptions for rape, incest and the life of the mother. As a policy matter, what does this mean?" from article
