Q&A's attempt at 'women's issues' reminds me of why I quit watching | Women of The Revolution | Scoop.it
Annabel Crabb hosting a panel that included Germaine Greer, Julie Bishop and Roxane Gay was enough to tempt me into viewing the program again but its narrow focus on women on boards, women’s pay and work-life balance was only liberated by Greer’s occasional outrageousness

Six female human rights defenders you should know

Six female human rights defenders you should know | Women of The Revolution | Scoop.it

As a human rights activist, I know too well the unwavering determination needed to defend the rights of society's most vulnerable and marginalised.

For many activists and human rights defenders, especially women, this struggle for freedom often comes with persecution, imprisonment, exile and political attacks. This year's International Women's Day is dedicated to women who 'Make it Happen', and plenty of women come to mind who embody this theme.

International Women's Day 2015: Celebrating the whirlwind wit of Simone de Beauvoir

International Women's Day 2015: Celebrating the whirlwind wit of Simone de Beauvoir | Women of The Revolution | Scoop.it
It is probably fair to say that I approached Simone de Beauvoir the wrong way round: I visited her grave before I read a word she'd written. This was not particularly my intention. Many years ago I was in Paris, with a handsome man who liked Sartre (my youth was filled with such men, several of whom also played the guitar. I have nothing to offer in my defence). He liked Sartre so much that he wanted to visit the great man's grave.
