OUR SUNDAY LINKS

April 27, 2014

  • Are you loving our Second Issue on Women’s Work?? Did you dig Natalie Childs’ review of Journeywoman”? Well turn your dials to CBC this morning to hear Kate Braid speak more about the barriers for women in the trades on the Sunday Edition.
  • Our Canadian Feminist sisters at cléo have put out the first volume of their second issue featuring feminist reviews of Her, Thelma and Louise, Tampopo, and an interview with filmmaker Eliza Hittman by Julia Cooper.
  • Susan Faludi reflects for the Baffler on the impact and meaning of Floyd Dell’s “Feminism for Men,” which argued that women’s liberation was a precondition of men’s liberation. Dell was a known shit head in his personal life, but as Faludi suggests, his ideas still have relevance today, given all the faux-feminist jocks running around.
  • “No more boring sex. No more lame sex. No more disconnected sex. No more close enough to perv for government work. No more obligatory fucking that brings shards of pleasure. Nevermore.” Chelsea G. Summers says it all about bad sex.
  • And lucky Canadian Feminiss, zines and rad swag are available from awesome design duo Go it Alone (Together). Show you give a fuck, in style and ON SALE.
  • From the UK, Strike Magazine has put their feminist issue, chock-a-block with big (feminist socialist) names like Nina Power, Guerrilla Girls, and Richard Seymour.
  • “’Consent is sexy’ is rape culture wrapped in feminist packaging.” Strong words from Boston-based blog Fiending for Hope on the need to change consent narratives.
  • Anne Perkis of the Guardian asks why Western lives are valued more than African lives, focusing on the under reporting of a recent mass kidnapping of Nigerian women.
