  • Tracy Hite

Cinderella Ate My Daughter: I just read this book- gives an interesting perspective and makes you think! I think we can maintain the sparkle and empower our young women to be independent, critical thinkers at the same time! :)

“[This book] took me away from a one-dimensional, Western interpretation of women’s rights and inspired me to be more of a critical thinker. Marji is one of my favorite strong female characters (or characters in general) of all time.”

Right Wing Columnist Wants to Hang Women Who Have Abortions~National Review Online correspondent Kevin Williamson went from saying young women are too dumb to vote to saying that women who have abortions should be hanged. We can’t blame Halloween for this macabre nonsense. This is really how Republicans feel about women.

The Wage Gap Has Everything to Do With Sexism (Even Though People Think It Doesn't) — Everyday Feminism

"Is Meghan Trainor's uber-hit All About That Bass anti-feminist?: Is the song, which crashed into the singles chart on Sunday, actually bad for women?" What are your thoughts? The article writer doesn't think so, but I feel that some of the song lyrics are a bit problematic.

  • lemonie :) evaro

    exactly ! i felt like it tries to tear down women of smaller sizes.

  • Tracy Hite

    they have good intentions but bad execution. skinny or big size 2 or 12 be who you are, and quit worrying about what men want to hold at night.

  • April Rose

    I definitely understand the feeling of skinny hate perpetuated by Trainor's song. That's one of the things that's stuck with me about it. Also, the way she's defining herself by the likelihood of getting into a relationship. But at the same time, I'm pretty sure that it's good for women overall. There are simply not enough body positive messages out there. I can't say it's a bad thing when there are so few other positive messages out there, even if they're problematic.

  • April Rose

    I'm also pretty annoyed at white people in general for acting like 'booty' is a thing that totally just happened when it has literally been going on for hundreds of years in Black culture.

  • Tracy Hite

    J. Lo is no better with her new song as well. no matter what your body type, what curves you have or don't have, your worth is not defined by them. body positive messages shouldn't inflict hurt on anyone but build each other up

Another great infographic by React Mobile which uses darker shades of colors to produce the effect the infographic is supposed to produce. It’s a useful infographic which shows the crime statistics that every college student should know. There are tips at the end that show how to tackle any situation if it arises.

Caricature of Victoria Woodhull by Thomas Nast, 1872. First female Wall Street broker, first female presidential candidate, advocate of better divorce laws. The hag in the back is a married woman saying, "Get behind me, Mrs. Sata!"

  • Etain

    Thomas Nast was also a racist. He depicted the Irish as drunken apes. And even though he supported the liberation in the South through his work during the Civil War, as soon as any free Blacks threatened the status quo, by say voting, they became apes in his political cartoons too.

Lucy Stone - determined that men were reading the Bible in a way to suppress women, she worked her way through school to learn Greek and Latin to prove them wrong. Kept her last name, chopped her hair off, scandalously wore precursors to pants, was kicked out of church for arguing that women had the right to own property and to be able to divorce abusive alcoholic husbands. Considered a true radical for her time, she spoke in public frequently and headed multiple prominent womens organizations.
