Sunday feminist roundup (15th December 2013)
Sunday feminist round-up. Would that work? Monday and Friday round-ups certainly didn’t. Perhaps I need to accept that blogging and a full-time (read: 1.5 time) job do not combine so well. (My feed reader indicates that I haven’t been there for almost a month. That’s how behind I am.) In any case, for today, Sunday, here’s a round-up.
- How American Politics Constantly Neglects Black Women (alternet)
- Escape from Christian Fundamentalism – the Kids Who Flee Abusive, Isolated Christian Homes (alternet)
- For Every Woman Working in the Film Industry, There are Five Men (bitchmagazine). Check out the infographic, also.
- In India, Fewer Than Three Percent of Journalists are Women (bitchmagazine)
- Comparing Acquisitive Crime to Rape (everydayvictimblaming). If I had a pound, etc.
- I am a woman and a human: a Marxist feminist critique of intersectionality theory (libcom)

- Not Up For Discussion: Women Priests in The Catholic Church (echidneofthesnakes). Would fall off my seat if if was up for discussion, frankly. #lapsedcatholiccynicism
- Eve Ensler and “Congo Stigmata” (everydayvictimblaming). This was a shockingly ill-thoughtout comparison. I thought so much better of Ensler.
- Patriarchy’s Magic Trick: How Anything Perceived As Women’s Work Immediately Sheds Its Value (cratesandribbons)
