Interlopers in a masculine city

Interlopers in a masculine city | Women of The Revolution | Scoop.it
Since at least the 1970s, writing on the experience of women in cities has focused on the ways in which the built environment acts as an expression of or enabler for the violence enacted upon women’s bodies: sexual assault and other violent crime, and the spatial separation of supposedly ‘masculine’ and ‘feminine’ space – that harmful dichotomy of public and private dividing the home from the street and workplace.

Wonder Woman’s Costume Has Changed SO MUCH Since 1941

Wonder Woman’s Costume Has Changed SO MUCH Since 1941 | Women of The Revolution | Scoop.it
With Gal Gadot taking to the silver screen in 2016 as Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it’s safe to say the Amazing Amazonian is going to have a big year. With her own standalone feature slated for 2017, we might even be entering a new golden era of Wonder Woman.
But before we plunge into brand new Wonder Woman cinematic adventures, we thought it’d be a good idea to revisit her look over the years throughout comics, TV and pop culture. What’s surprising is that, for a character considered so iconic and recognizable, Wonder Woman’s costume has evolved constantly since her debut in 1941.

As the character has continue to modernize, the costume has often reflected changes in feminist and progressive thought

Harper Lee’s Scout Finch Was My First Real Feminist Role Model

Harper Lee’s Scout Finch Was My First Real Feminist Role Model | Women of The Revolution | Scoop.it

When Lee died last week at the age of 89, I did what felt most natural. I picked up my treasured first-edition copy and gingerly paged through it, silently mouthing sections of it to myself. And as I read it for the umpteenth time, it dawned on me that Scout Finch—the strong-headed, spunky, routinely barefoot, utterly “unladylike” heroine in overalls at the center of the book—was the badass feminist role model a young tomboy like me once needed to tell her it was OK to just be herself.
