e-feminism

12 Oct

There are some good magazines out there…  online though.

I bringing close to you two here. Some of you might be aware of them already.

On the one hand:

Feministtimes

 “Where have all the interesting women gone? And what has happened to all the interesting magazines? Feminist Times is a PR, advertising and celebrity free magazine aimed at interesting women. Our 3D feminism will result in our members meeting regularly and together we will campaign. Who knows where it will take us? LIFE NOT LIFESTYLE”

Feminist Times | LIFE NOT LIFESTYLE

And on the other hand :

Femusings

“A literary cocktail of the polemic, the factual and the comical, it was rumoured that Femusings sprung out of a top-secret government initiative, funded by the G20. The project was, in reality, spawned as the love-child of two university chums and launched at the end of July, 2013.

We’re seeking politically-minded sexpots for intellectual tickling and cerebral stimulation. Must have G.S.O.H, strong stomach, and an insatiable curiosity. In return, we’ll give you steamy nights of intellectual passion, hearty meals of gender-equality sustenance and some pork scratchings on the side.

Femuse.”

I hope you enjoy them!

We own the streets

Hollaback

Hollaback (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

” Hollaback is a movement to end street harassment powered by a network of local activists around the world.  We work together to better understand street harassment, to ignite public conversations, and to develop innovative strategies to ensure equal access to public spaces.

Street harassment is one of the most pervasive forms of gender-based violence and one of the least legislated against. Comments from “You’d look good on me” to groping, flashing and assault are a daily, global reality for women and LGBTQ individuals. But it is rarely reported, and it’s culturally accepted as ‘the price you pay’ for being a woman or for being gay. At Hollaback!, we don’t buy it. ” Hollaback.org

Bellow is a link of their website in the US

Hollaback! You have the power to end street harassment

Also there is one branch working in London here

HollabackLDN! |  About Us

” That site is a resource to allow people to share their stories without being victims, as well as to highlight just how often it happens, and to work on what we’re going to do about it.

Street harassment occurs on a daily basis all over the world, and indeed all over London. The term ‘Street harassment’ is used to describe sexual harassment which takes place in public spaces, and refers to behaviour such as staring, commenting, shouting, following, touching, grabbing, groping, flashing, assault, and violence. Part of the problem with street harassment is that it’s invisible. ”

Those website offers tools and practical advise to fight street harassment, both being the target and bystander. Check them out.

Personally I am not a big fan of the popular Facebook, but would be great if you have a profile in there, that you could join their group ( HollaBack! – Brooklyn – Non-Profit Organization | Facebook  )  and share it around.

iO Tillett Wright: Fifty shades of gay | Video on TED.com

8 Apr

I hope you enjoy this video, if you haven’t watched already

Artist iO Tillett Wright has photographed 2,000 people who consider themselves somewhere on the LGBTQ spectrum and asked many of them: Can you assign a percentage to how gay or straight you are? Most people, it turns out, consider themselves to exist in the gray areas of sexuality, not 100% gay or straight. Which presents a real problem when it comes to discrimination: Where do you draw the line? (Filmed at TEDxWomen.)
