Antony Hegarty: Future Feminism Antony Hegarty has been guest-editing Dazed Digital all week ahead of Meltdown Festival, which he'll be curating later this month. Now speaking openly with Dazed, the form-flouting Mercury Prize winner leads us on a two-part excursion away from familiar territory - through gender-politics, ecology and power structures - to the final frontier of Future Feminism. I think kids should take the hormones of the opposite sex for three months as part of their high school experience; just so they understand each other’s operating systems Dazed Digital: It’s the title of a track on the forthcoming ‘Cut The World’ album and the concept behind Meltdown Festival, which you will be curating this month, but what does Future Feminism mean and what are its aims?Antony Hegarty: I’m not a scientist.

Une belle vitrine de 17 femmes sur 34 ministres, qui lui fait dépasser le stade de la parité. Oui, mais... Sur les bancs de l’Assemblée, les chiffres font rosir (de honte) : sur 577 sièges, on ne compte actuellement que 109 femmes, soit 19% des parlementaires.
Le Monde.fr | • Mis à jour le | Par Charlotte Chabas - Reykjavik (envoyée spéciale) Dans son vaste bureau situé au cinquième étage de la tour de Siminn, leader des télécommunications islandaises, Hannah siège face à une pile de dossiers aussi haute qu'elle. A 31 ans, cette ingénieure n'aime pas tourner autour du pot. "J'ai été élevée dans l'idée qu'une femme pouvait et devait faire tout ce qu'elle souhaite", affirme-t-elle, sans l'ombre d'une hésitation. L'Islande est-elle vraiment le paradis des femmes ?
Laurie Penny | Contemporary Feminism - Feminism Is An Incomplete Revolution The European: Feminists sometimes get a bad reputation in the media. Why? Penny: I think there is always going to be a lot of anger when the members of any privileged group have the perception that they are threatened.
A magazine article by a former Obama administration official has blown up into an instant debate about a new conundrum of female success: women have greater status than ever before in human history, even outpacing men in education, yet the lineup at the top of most fields is still stubbornly male. Is that new gender gap caused by women who give up too easily, unsympathetic employers or just nature itself? The article in The Atlantic, by Anne-Marie Slaughter, a Princeton professor who recently left a job at the State Department, added to a renewed feminist conversation that is bringing fresh twists to bear on longstanding concerns about status, opportunity and family. Unlike earlier iterations, it is being led not by agitators who are out of power, but by elite women at the top of their fields, like the comedian Tina Fey, the Facebook executive Sheryl Sandberg and now Ms. Slaughter.

Diane MacEachern: Women Leave Rio+20 Motivated to Galvanize Sustainability Around Family Planning and Reproductive Rights There is a direct correlation between access to voluntary family planning, women's empowerment and environmental sustainability. And though the official delegates to last week's "Earth Summit" tried to water it down, thousands of grassroots activists made it one of the biggest issues to rock Rio+20, as the event was also called. Why? Because ensuring that women have full reproductive rights creates one of the most desirable "two-fers" on the planet. Complete access to voluntary family planning is among the quickest, simplest, and most affordable ways to improve women's quality of life. It is also one of the most direct, immediate and cost-effective ways to reduce climate change.
