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!

Gender Equality - Gender Balance

Gender Equality – Gender Balance (Photo credit: andreabauer)

Despite the fantastic achievements of our sportswomen, women’s sport remains an afterthought.

The lack of coverage has more impact than unbalanced column inches. It impacts on women’s participation and has wider implications for women’s equality.

Alongside health benefits, participation in sport helps develop life skills, with sporting activity during youth being linked to confidence and career success later in life.”

Feminisms Biggest Challenge: What the Heck Is Feminism?

Feminisms Biggest Challenge: What the Heck Is Feminism?.

Extracted from Policymic, by Natalie Smith

 

We'll free you!!

 

Race isn’t the only tension in feminism today. There’s class, there’s sexuality, there’s radical feminism and liberal feminism, second wavers, third wavers, American feminists, Middle Eastern feminists, Christian feminists, Jewish feminists, Muslim feminists — the list goes on forever.

That’s the problem when it comes to referencing “the” feminist movement. There is no one monolithic feminist movement because it’s impossible to build a social or political movement that adequately addresses the concerns of any group as diverse as women. We can construct academic definitions of what it means to be a feminist, we can deconstruct the movement’s impact on American history, on global history, but the fact of the matter is that when it comes to our day-to-day interactions with one another, we have no working definition for what being “feminist” even looks like.

….

“Feminism isn’t a rulebook, but a discussion.” In order for feminism to be an inclusive, robust, vibrant, healthy movement, we need to let it be different things to different people: to let women of all backgrounds decide what their issues, priorities, and beliefs are and as other feminists, acknowledge a duty to support and promote those voices.

4 Women’s Issues That Haven’t Changed Since 1911

MIND THE GAP

1. Men dominate many of the most esteemed professional fields — and get paid more for their work.

“It is a fact that women teachers, doctors, lawyers, architects, and engineers are neither met with the same confidence as their male colleagues, nor receive equal remuneration,”

2. Work stress disproportionately impacts women.

 37 percent of women said they feel stressed at work (whereas 33 percent of men reported workplace stress) and that only 34 percent of women felt that they had enough resources to manage their stress (whereas 38 percent of men felt they had resources available to them).

3. The “freedom” the workplace supposedly offers women sometimes doesn’t feel so free at all.

“How much independence is gained if the narrowness and lack of freedom of the home is exchanged for the narrowness and lack of freedom of the factory, sweat-shop, department store, or office?” Goldman

4. Women are doubling up on work at home and outside of the home.

The “Second Shift” refers to the disproportionate amount of unpaid domestic labor women do in addition to their paid jobs
