Préface au livre de John Stoltenberg : Refuser d’être un homme – Pour en finir avec la virilité

Est-ce une entorse aux principes du féminisme radical ? À mon sens, non. Le mouvement féministe de la deuxième vague, né dans les années 1970 dans tous les pays occidentaux, et qui s’est inspiré du mouvement américain des droits civiques, estimait – et pour ma part j’estime toujours – que la libération des opprimé·es doit être l’œuvre de celles-ci et de ceux-ci ; que l’intervention des hommes dans les réunions, les réflexions, les ouvrages féministes a trop souvent comme effet de faire jouer à nouveau le prestige qu’a le groupe dominant aux yeux des dominé·es ; et de permettre ainsi à ce groupe de continuer à jouer son rôle naturel : à diriger, à exercer son pouvoir jusque dans les lieux qui ont pour but de le contester.

Il est donc juste de leur refuser ce rôle. Genre : état des lieux. La Vie des idées : « Gender studies », « théorie du genre », « théorie du gender », « théorie du genre sexuel » : les associations catholiques et les députés accablent ces théories de tous les maux, sans jamais les définir.

Lori Rotskoff: When We Were Free to Be... Revisiting A Children's Classic on Its 40th Anniversary.

Lori Rotskoff: When We Were Free to Be... Revisiting A Children's Classic on Its 40th Anniversary

Conceived and co-produced by Marlo Thomas, "Free to Be...You and Me" offered kids a fresh alternative to rigid cultural stereotypes that prevailed in the media during the "Leave it to Beaver" era. Featuring a collage of songs, skits, stories, and poems recorded by celebrated actors, musicians, and singers, "Free to Be...You and Me" changed the way in which parents and children thought (and continue to think) about gender roles, equality, and social justice.

Republican’s abortion bill risks alienating Asian Americans

Sex-selection abortion is a huge tragedy in parts of Asia, but to the extent it’s happening in this country, it’s mostly among Asian immigrants.

CINCINNATI – What do women want?

Romney Faces a Formidable Gender Gap

Another four years of President Obama, according to a new YWCA-sponsored poll that found him leading Republican Mitt Romney by 49 percent to 31 percent. The yawning gender gap mirrors other surveys nationwide and here in Ohio, a hotly contested swing state, and it represents one of Romney’s most pressing challenges in the home stretch before the Nov. 6 election. Women typically favor the Democratic nominee, but the gender gap popping up in recent polls is larger than expected. “Women think President Obama is more in touch with their concerns,’’ said Democratic pollster Celinda Lake, who supervised the YWCA survey with Republican pollster Kellyanne Conway.
