L’objectivation sexuelle des femmes : un puissant outil du patriarcat – le regard masculin Partie 1 : définition et concept-clés Partie 3 : les violences sexuelles, des actes d’objectivation extrêmes et dissociant Après une première partie introductive, je vais rentrer dans le vif du sujet et commencer par discuter de la forme d’objectivation sexuelle la plus commune, celle qui passe par le regard masculin. Cette forme d’objectivation est souvent appelée male gaze dans les pays anglo-saxons et consiste à inspecter et évaluer le corps des femmes. Sur le graphique présenté en introduction, nous nous trouvons donc à la première étape : les expériences d’objectivation sexuelle, qui surviennent quand autrui nous traite comme un objet sexuel. Graphique résumant les conséquences de l’objectivation sexuelle. Le male gaze : une prérogative des hommes qui s’exprime via le harcèlement sexuel Blachman est une émission danoise humiliante et misogyne dont le concept est le suivant : deux hommes évaluent le corps d’une femme qui se présente nue devant eux.

Stuff.co.nz Last updated 21:59, May 13 2016 Alice Turrell, left, and Michaela Waite-Harvey are organising a Pride Day at Marlborough Girls' College. Students at a Marlborough high school are celebrating sexual diversity in style with their first ever Pride Day. The Spectrum group at Marlborough Girls' College was set up in 2015, and provides support to students of all genders and sexual orientations. Group members Michaela Waite-Harvey and Alice Turrell, both in year 13, said they had been trying to get a Pride Day lined up for at least a year. A photo booth would be running on Wednesday at lunchtime and before school where students could have their pictures taken with rainbow decorations and post them on social media.

Ten direct actions by women that changed the world | Bidisha For as long as the world has been unequal and governments have allowed inequality to flourish, women have protested. We’ve marched, starved, petitioned, written letters, devised legislation and even gone entertainingly off-piste to raise awareness and register our rage. Just over a century ago, the campaign for women’s votes was reaching its radical peak, with women disrupting public meetings, chaining themselves to railings and destroying artwork and public property. Last week, at the premiere of the film Suffragette, feminist campaigners demonstrated on the red carpet for women’s right to refuge provision. Women’s direct action and protest has changed the world – like the strikes by machinists at Ford’s plant in Dagenham in 1968, which led to the landmark 1970 Equal Pay Act. Here are some of the best examples in a century of campaigning. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. Feminists in Peru dressed in red and lay on the pavement outside the Ministry of Women. 9. 10.

Shailene's Hair, Unfair Monopoly, and the Just World Fallacy 14 Painful Examples Of Everyday Fat-Shaming If you've ever doubted that fat-shaming is something that happens every day, just listen to the hundreds of Twitter users who shared their stories last week. Blogger Melissa McEwan created the #FatMicroaggressions hashtag to start a conversation about the inappropriate and hurtful comments directed at overweight people on a regular basis. Microaggression, a term coined by Professor Chester Middlebrook Pierce in 1970, refers to small acts of aggression towards people of a certain group -- usually those of non-privileged races, classes or ethnicities. Fat acceptance blogger Living~400lbs posits that overweight people are particularly susceptible to microaggressions because it is acceptable to be openly prejudiced against fat. In a January 2009 blog post she explained: "The problem is that many people figure fat people are not 'really' people, or at least don’t deserve to be treated like people." Here are 14 revealing tweets from people who have experienced fat-related microaggressions:

Recently, when it's my turn to do the groceries, I have taken to visiting to a smaller supermarket which offers fewer choices. They have the tea I like, and the washing powder I always use, and I don't have to hunt so hard for free range chicken amongst stacks of the other kind.

Which is why, sometimes, the set menu, or the work uniform, or the package tour appeals. Here's a thing you don't have to think about – the choice has been made for you. "Men work, women have babies!" "Don't mess with the way things have worked for thousands of years!" Except they haven't worked. Half the human race with intellect, talent and gifts, denied an outlet. Yes, and no.

Watch A Bunch Of Little Girls Curse Like Sailors To Promote Feminism TED Talks: What FACEBOOK And GOOGLE Are Hiding From The World Growing Up Brown: Desexualized and Hyper-sexualized Originally published on Feminspire and cross-posted here with their permission. I’m always surprised by the way I look. Sometimes I look down and notice that my thighs are taking up much more space than I would like. Or sometimes I glance at myself in the mirror and realize that my arms are fuller and rounder than I expected. I don’t expect to look like myself. I expect to look like other girls, girls who are on TV and in magazines, girls who people call “beautiful.” I don’t want to look like them – not outwardly, at least. I tell myself I don’t care if I’m not “beautiful.” But then I’m caught off-guard every once in a while when I catch a glimpse of myself somewhere and realize that I do not look like anyone in the movies. Chaya Babu recently published an article on the Feminist Wire called Walking the Tightrope: Good Indian Girls, Race, and Bad Sexuality. “Women of color were mostly unseen as partner options. There’s still always the sense of someone watching. You don’t look exactly right.

These gay rugby players are dismantling stereotypes with their powerful new campaign. Rugby is no joke. Especially in South Africa. The team sport is fast and aggressive. Like Upworthy on FacebookThis magical button delivers Upworthy stories to you on Facebook: South Africa is home to the Springboks (the national rugby team) and several provincial rugby unions, each fielding a professional rugby team and amateur clubs. It's a big business, and home or away, national pride is always on the line. But, sadly, something else is all too common in South Africa: Hate crimes, specifically against the LGBT community. Despite having a progressive constitution (even lauded by U.S. Stigma, negative stereotypes, and homophobic violence persist, making it difficult for LGBT people to live freely or pursue personal and professional passions without fear of harassment or attack.

Sondage: La perception de leur corps par les femmes varie en fonction de leur milieu social Certaines sont fières de leur corps, d’autres aimeraient mieux l’oublier. Révélé ce mercredi, le sondage exclusif* CSA pour 20 minutes et Terrafemina.com, montre que la perception de leur corps chez les femmes varie en fonction de leur milieu social. Ainsi, 74% des femmes cadres et professions libérales estiment que leur corps constitue une part de leur identité, contre seulement 54% des employées et des ouvrières. Un écart de perception s’expliquant par le fait que les femmes de catégorie sociale supérieure sont les plus satisfaites de leur corps (58%), tandis que les ouvrières expriment un rapport plus compliqué à celui-ci (32% en sont mécontentes). «Or, dans une société ou l’impact de l’apparence physique est croissant, le corps ne peut être source d’identification que si on le trouve beau», souligne le sociologue Jean-François Amadieu, notamment spécialiste des déterminants physiques de la sélection sociale.

School installs toilet for transgender pupil, aged 6 Unisex toilet will help child feel safe and accepted at school. A popular Auckland primary school has been praised for installing a unisex toilet to help a 6-year-old transgender pupil feel safe and accepted. The toilet was installed earlier this year with the support of the Board of Trustees and the Education Ministry after the child's transition from boy to girl. The Herald on Sunday has chosen not to name the school to protect the child's privacy. The school's board chairman said their decision was about supporting a pupil. Other parents were not told, just as they would not be told about other measures taken to support a child, he said. "I believe our parent community supports diversity [anyway]. "There's nothing scary about that, there's nothing unusual about that. "I'm proud to be part of a school that says 'it's okay to be who you are and we are going to make sure you get the best education, without worrying about anything else'." Continued below.
