Happy birthday, Alison Bechdel!
The Bechdel Test for Women in Movies (by feministfrequency)
The SlutwalkNYC logo is here!!!
Photographer Tyler Shields thinks domestic violence is sexy and edgy. Hmmm. Not so much. And he’s not even being original, since fashion loves to portray battered women. Tyler’s defense, “In no way were we promoting domestic violence. We wanted to do a bruised-up Barbie shoot and that’s exactly what we did!” So in other words, he wanted to use a steretypical, heteronormative image of oppressed female sexuality and then further abuse it, not to be subversive, but because it’s fun!!!
The brave person holding this sign is such an incredible inspiration. This is so much what Slutwalk is about- a space, sometimes the only space, where no one is blamed for their own rape. Taken at Slutwalk DC. (via Flickr)
Slutwalk NYC Coalition allies itself with the diverse communities, activists and survivors who live with and fight the effects of rape culture.
The fight against rape culture includes the fight against
Domestic and Intimate Partner Violence
The fight for a culture without rape is a fight for:
Free and creative gender expression
On demand access to abortion and reproductive health services
Respect in the workplace
Respect on the street
Safer, consensual, informed sex
