    (Cross-posted at Women’s Glib .) This is truly disgusting. A few things I can think of that are really fucking wrong with this, just off the top of my seriously pissed off head: a) the whole objectifying women thing . Just a reminder: we don’t like being defined by our breasts , or any body part for that matter. And b) that said [...]

    Rachel at Feministe passes along Change.org’s call for more participation on their Women’s Rights page – because “the more traffic and participation they get on that page, the more they can push it with the Obama transition folks.” I sent in my pitch for mandated comprehensive sex education in public schools . Site participants can comment on and [...]

    Go read Fatemeh at Feministe’s post about a controversial security measure taken in the Green Zone of Baghdad.
    And if I could, I would categorize this post not just under Analysis, but also under Harassment, International, Iraq War, Politics, Religion, and Women of Color. Anyone else wish that we could file posts under multiple topics?

    Every woman has had their share of harassment – so much so that we often don’t pause to think about, record, or discuss it. Harassment, much like sexism and misogyny, has become very normalized in our society. It’s time we turned the tables.
