Monday (Tuesday) feminist roundup (17th June 2013)
- Bust has a story on how a 13-year-old girl dies after genital mutilation. Brutal.
- Stuart Hall’s sentence is “unduly lenient” according to Jonathon Freedland (commentisfree). I thought it was disgraceful.
- We all drew breath at the pictures of Nigella Lawson being grabbed by the throat by her husband. It was a “playful tiff”, he said. What does a serious tiff look like, asks Suzanne Moore (commentisfree).
- On the same note, Alternet asks why no one stepped in to stop Saatchi. Indeed.
- Rhoda Grant (newstatesman) discusses the case for the Criminalisation of the Purchase of Sex Bill.
- Bust again: a story about turning the tables on fat-shaming (possibly NSFW): The Adipositivity Project wants to “widen definitions of physical beauty – literally.” It was made to push through all the bullshit fat-hate and prove that big bodies can be strong, confident, and really really beautiful. A collection of professionally-snapped pics, Adipositivity showcases full-figured bodies in all their glory. Round, soft, strong, and naked. Not every picture is a nudie, but there’s enough boob in this post to warrant a lil’ NSFW warning.
- A conservative claims that women in the military make up rape stories for money (feministing). Christ alive.
- Finally, the Nation has some infographics on Aids prevention and anti-prostitution drives.
Same time next week, folks. (Or when I get around to it.)
