What No One Else Will Tell You About Feminism But this is the problem you bring up a contentious issue, ask if you a feminist if you believe differently and say you don't want to talk about the issue. A little too cute no? I think you can clearly be a feminist and think abortion is wrong, a bad choice, perhaps even immoral. You can try to persuade women not to get them and refuse to get one yourself even if you know your baby is going to die within weeks of birth. It is the legal issue that is more problematic. So why would the state have the right to demand that women of reproductive age donate their bodies to bring another citizen to life? Additionally, the attempt to control this choice is fought over just as hard even if the individual to be born wil die in a few weeks or months, even if that death will painful, or prolonged torment (like Tay-Sachs).

Interview: Sheryl Sandberg Author Of 'Lean In' | What's Holding Women Back Of all the posters plastered around Facebook's Silicon Valley headquarters — "Move Fast and Break Things," "Done Is Better Than Perfect" and "Fail Harder" — Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg has a favorite: "What Would You Do If You Weren't Afraid?" "[It's] something that I think is really important and I think very motivating," Sandberg tells NPR's Renee Montagne. " ... I wrote in my book, what I would do if I wasn't afraid is, I would speak out more on behalf of women." That book — Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead — is something of a feminist call to arms. In it, Sandberg, a 43-year-old former Google executive with two Harvard degrees, is calling on other women, as she puts it, to "lean in" and embrace success. And it has struck a chord. Sandberg is no stranger to success. "I thought it was absurd," says Sandberg. "I was really embarrassed," Sandberg says. "My assistant pulled me into my conference room and closed the door. Two lines of argument run through Lean In.

Why You Should Ditch The Template & Code Your Own Online Portfolio You know you need an online portfolio, so what’s the next step? Find an online portfolio site, choose a template, and go? No way! You’re too original for that. For your portfolio you need something unique–something that will look awesome, not cookie-cutter, and will showcase who you are and what you can do. 1. Think about it: a prospective employer or client is going to see the link to your portfolio on your resume or cover letter and immediately form an impression of you and your skill set by clicking on that link, even before they bother to read the content! 2. 3. 4. Think of templates in that way, at least for your portfolio site. 5. Want to learn HTML and CSS so you can build your own portfolio? Féministes en mouvements

Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" degrades women July 26, 2013|By Timothy Villareal Robin Thicke, right, takes offense to the charge that “Blurred Lines” is “rapey,” but the rationale for that accusation is difficult to miss. (HANDOUT) If you have not heard it by now, a catchy tune with grotesque, misogynist lyrics has conquered the nation this summer. The female director of the video, Diane Martel, rationalizes the visual degradation by arguing that the women, as they are being actively degraded on film, look into the camera, instead of away from the camera. Who knew there was a glass ceiling in sophistry to break in the first place? Yet according to Katie Russell of the British organization Rape Crisis, the song has lyrics that are "explicitly sexually violent and appear to reinforce victim-blaming rape myths, for example about women giving 'mixed signals' through their dress or behavior, saying 'no' when they really mean 'yes' and so on." Case in point: I know you want it You're a good girl Can't let it get past me You're far from plastic

10 HTML Tags You Might Not Be Using As a front-end developer you no doubt use HTML constantly and probably feel it doesn’t have any more unknowns. Nevertheless, the way it has evolved (in particular with the advent of HTML5) may surprise you at times. In this article, I’ll show you 10 HTML tags you may not be using or maybe even aren’t yet aware of that help to increase the semantics and maintainability of your web pages. 1. <meter> At some point we may need to express a measure on a web page. Based on this element’s definition in the specification, <meter> is not good to measure something like external temperature — because it doesn’t have a fixed range (you can define, it but it’s arbitrary). 2. From time immemorial, developers have created widgets to notify users of the progress of a download or task. Or equivalently: The text inside the element is used as a fallback for older browsers. 3. & 4. When writing, we often find ourselves quoting a book, an article, or person. 5. 6. & 7. 8. 9. 10. In Conclusion

Présentation de l’association | EFiGiES Créée en 2003, EFiGiES est une association qui vise à créer de la solidarité entre étudiant·e·s, doctorant·e·s et jeunes chercheur·e·s en Études Féministes, Genre et Sexualités à travers une mise en commun de savoirs et d’informations. Plusieurs outils permettent ce réseautage : Pour promouvoir les recherches réalisées dans le domaine, l’association organise ou soutient des manifestations scientifiques qui entendent mettre en avant la pluridisciplinarité et la diversité des approches théoriques. L’institutionnalisation des recherches dans le domaine du Genre est engagée, mais elle reste limitée. Les laboratoires de recherche spécialisés sont rares, peu d’enseignant·e·s/chercheur·e·s sont habilité·e·s (HDR) et, quand elle existe, l’institutionnalisation repose souvent sur l’initiative d’un·e seule chercheur·e ou d’un·e enseignant·e et demeure donc fragile.
