About The Clit List - My Body Back Project

We’ve created it with women who have experienced sexual violence in mind, so they can access erotic media that might help them explore their sexual desires while staying informed about potential triggers. The Clit List aims to cover a wide variety of sexual interests but we’ll always omit content that is violent, objectifying or patriarchal in nature. Here you’ll find both short and long porn films, erotic literature, art and photography, advice on sex toys and aids, as well as instructional and advice videos on sex, sexuality, body image and relationships.

Stanford Sexual Assault Case Survivor Emily Doe Speaks Out

Maybe you read the powerful words—part of a “victim’s impact statement” the young woman who’d been sexually assaulted at Stanford University had prepared to read to her attacker in court. The facts of the case were harrowing: On January 18, 2015, after a party, “Emily Doe,” as she came to be called, had been sexually assaulted by freshman Brock Turner as she lay unconscious behind a dumpster; two men passing by on bicycles saw the crime and tackled Turner as he ran away. But it was Doe’s take-no-prisoners telling of what happened afterward—the relentless victim-blaming; the favoring of Turner, a student athlete—that changed the conversation about sexual assault forever. “Future reference, if you are confused about whether a girl can consent, see if she can speak an entire sentence,” she wrote to Turner. The-men-feminists-left-behind. For women, feminism is both remarkably successful and a work in progress: We are in the work force in record numbers, but rarely ascend to the highest ranks.

Sexual violence is taken more seriously than ever, but women still experience it, usually from men they know, at astounding rates. Women are more visible in public life and create more of the media and art Americans consume, but we still make up just 19 percent of Congress and 33 percent of speaking roles in the 100 top-grossing films. Still, young women are soaring, in large part because we are coming of age in a kind of feminist sweet spot: still exhibiting many traditional feminine behaviors — being polite, cultivating meaningful connections, listening and communicating effectively — and finding that those same qualities work to our benefit in the classroom and workplace, opening up more opportunities for us to excel.

For generations, archaeologists believed that Stone Age gender roles split neatly in two, like a well-struck piece of flint: Paleolithic males were hunters of woolly mammoths and other daunting prey.

Early life[edit] In 1860, Lady Florence's father died in what was reported as a shooting accident, but was widely believed to have been suicide.[3] In 1862 his widow converted herself and her youngest children, Florence and her brother James, to Roman Catholicism and took them to live in Paris for two years. This led the children's guardians to threaten Lady Queensberry with the loss of her children, a real possibility at a time when women's rights were very limited. In later life, Lady Florence campaigned on such injustices, highlighted in her book The Story of Ijarn (1903).[4] The Feminist Movement Is NOT Over (00:17)
