Le victim-blaming (ou pourquoi j’ai grondé mon chat après lui avoir marché sur la queue) [1] – L’expression viendrait du livre « Blaming the Victim, Globally » publié dans les années 70 par William Ryan.

Diagrams of Power: Visualizing, Mapping, and Performing Resistance – We Make Money Not Art Diagrams of Power: Visualizing, Mapping, and Performing Resistance, edited by Patricio Dávila. Onomatopee describes the book: We draw diagrams to help us think, communicate and put forth what we think is important or what we want to be true. While some diagrams are seen as statements of fact, they can also further agendas by discounting other realities beneath a cloak of perceived objectivity. Diagrams of power work against representations that claim omniscience by speaking from a position, and making visible what and who gets represented and who does the representing.

How patriarchal compliance has been turned into feminist activism. Over the last few years we’ve been witnessing an ideological shift within what we call third wave feminism, specifically through online activism. This shift is embodied in the thesis of « choice feminism », a movement equating feminism with -merely- any choice a woman makes. For pro “choice feminism” it is simple: every choice you make as a woman is a feminist one and it is anti-woman to criticize or judge these choices.

Diotima: Women & Gender in the Ancient World Call for Collaborators to The On-line Companion to The Worlds of Roman Women The On-Line Companion to the Focus Reader, The Worlds of Roman Women, expands the book's wide representation of Latin texts by and about women dating from the earliest periods through the fourth century CE.

The Companion has two major parts. The Worlds section includes Class, Religion, Childhood, Learning, Marriage, Family, Body, State, Work, and Flirtation. Each World opens to reveal a thematic image of women in this world, a brief essay on this World, a list of on-line texts and hyperlinked images.

Don’t Fall For the New H&M Campaign A new breed of feminism has been rearing its big, beautiful head. The fourth wave has swept in on the tides of the internet the last decade, and though it isn’t yet as defined or action-based as its older sisters, it is more inclusive than them in nature and diverse in its messages. As well as traditional feminist issues like unequal pay and domestic violence, fourth-wave feminism tackles a new host of problems, from online misogyny and slut shaming to campus rape and the rights of women in developing countries. It’s also marked by a strong emphasis on the body positive movement, particularly the reclaiming of female bodies, which is fucking awesome considering how much razor heads cost these days.

'You don't own or control me': Janelle Monáe on her music, politics and undefinable sexuality Days before she delivers her unequivocal Time’s Up speech at the Grammys – “We come in peace, but we mean business” – Janelle Monáe walks into an upper-level hotel suite in Manhattan, just as sunset begins to fade over the Hudson river. Her 5ft stature is amplified by a wide-brimmed hat and a warm, room-owning confidence. She is dressed in a fetching new arrangement of her preferred black-and-white palette: a slightly cropped top and flared pants, worn under a fuzzy black duster coat with massive white polka dots. Monáe’s uniform of suits and tuxedos, by her reckoning, is a fashion statement second, a political statement first – a homage to her working-class upbringing, she says. Since her breakout more than a decade ago with the Fritz Lang–inspired EP Metropolis, and her critically acclaimed full-length debut The ArchAndroid, political statements have been at the core of Monáe’s work.

'Women are just better at this stuff': is emotional labor feminism's next frontier? We remember children’s allergies, we design the shopping list, we know where the spare set of keys is. We multi-task. We know when we’re almost out of Q-tips, and plan on buying more. We are just better at remembering birthdays. We love catering to loved ones, and we make note of what they like to eat. We notice people’s health, and force friends and family to go see the doctor. Dear Fuck-Up: Should I apologize to the women I hurt? Brandy Jensen, The Outline’s social media editor, has made a lot of mistakes in her life. Has she learned from them and become a wiser person as a result? Hahaha oh gosh no. But it does leave her uniquely qualified to tell you what not to do — because she’s probably done it. Dear Fuck-Up

Moving Toward the Ugly: A Politic Beyond Desirability *Femmes Of Color Symposium Keynote Speech, Oakland, CA (8/21/11) Good afternoon, and thank you for having me. It is lovely to be here with you all. Thank you to the symposium organizers who have asked me to be here and for your hard work putting this gathering on. And thank you to ALL the folks who have made it possible for us to be here, including the people who built this building and who clean it and care for it everyday; including the people who are being violently exploited in this country and around the globe for their resources and labor so that we can exist in this air conditioned hotel with access to clean water and food, able to sit in relative safety from military attacks or the police barging in.
