Elle magazine examines gendered anxiety in men without thinking critically about gender

Elle magazine examines gendered anxiety in men without thinking critically about gender | Women of The Revolution | Scoop.it

Elle magazine had a great opportunity to talk about how patriarchy and assumed gender roles hurt men. But they didn’t take it. Luckily, I have no problem doing it for them.

Vogue is usually the only magazine I read every month. But I was drunk on a Sunday afternoon (completely normal on the DC brunch scene) and I picked up the February 2014 copy ofElle magazine for my monthly dose of “shit I can’t afford.” Let me be clear, I don’t read fashion magazine for feminist theory. But if you are going to try to take a stab at gender analysis, don’t half ass it.

Why It Matters That Lena Dunham Wrote About Being Raped In College

Why It Matters That Lena Dunham Wrote About Being Raped In College | Women of The Revolution | Scoop.it

The actress' new memoir includes a candid exploration of sexual assault that highlights the confusion over what exactly rape looks like.

Public figures like Dunham can help nudge us toward that shift, too. By explaining how that sexual encounter made her feel, and acknowledging it took time to realize she was raped, Dunham is adding her voice to the growing movement to confront everyday sexual violence. And she might help some of the young women who read her book find the words to name past experiences that they hadn’t previously known how to classify.

“What is more offensive? A little girl saying ‘f**k’ or the f**king unequal and sexist way society treats girls and women?” That is the premise of a new ad for progressive apparel company FCKH8, which recruited a group of little girls, dressed them in frilly princess costumes and plastic tiaras, and instructed them to swear like sailors to promote feminist causes.
