    I’ve almost finished Geri Jewell’s autobiography “I’m Walking As Straight As I Can.” It’s written with a lot of humor and yet very honest about the difficulties of both having a disability and being gay in Hollywood. I highly recommend it.

  • Thanks for posting. I had heard that Woody Allen had been accused of a crime, but I didn’t realize that crime was abuse of a child, and hearing from the survivor herself certainly drives home that severity. Will not be supporting Allen’s movies from now on.

    In honor of MLK Jr. Day my friend will be playing songs associated with civil rights and black power movements during Music Historian’s Corner on CHIRP Radio. If anyone would like to listen it will be tomorrow 12-3pm on http://chirpradio.org/

  • “Do not be the safe white woman that people can talk to about their racism. Strive to be something better. Follow the lead of people of color. Stand up. Even when you don’t do so perfectly. And above all else, listen.” Thank you many times over for this post. Like many I was shocked by [...]

    Really enjoyed and agreed with the review of “Don’t Call Me Inspirational.” The book is a fast, deep read and Ruosso is a strong role model for people (especially women) with disabilities. I’m also currently reading Flight Patterns by Barbara Kingsolver. In addition to being vivid a beautiful writing, the book handles climate change seriously [...]

    Thank you, sexist Twitter responders to Fem Frequency, for reminding me there are upsides to not having a Twitter account.

  • This is very helpful, thank you.

    I hope WAM is able to see some results from the open letter to Facebook. I’ve reported a page several times and been repeatedly told the page does not fall under what they consider hate speech and thus no action will be taken. How blatant racism and sexism are not considered hate speech is beyond [...]

    Thank you so much for this piece. As a woman with several male friends who are interested in, if not overtly claiming feminism, it is nice to see an ally who willing to both take on the emotional work, and write about it on the internet so others can benefit. I hope others will follow [...]

    I read Outdated recently with a friend and it’s really given us courage and sparked some great conversations about how we see our love lives. Thank you so much for your insights and Happy Birthday!!

    Anyone else notice that “Women’s Health” is on the “Pro-Life” side, while ironically forms of contraception are on the “Anti-Life” side? Apparently the person who put this together is irony-challenged.

    Thanks so much for that last link–sad of course but very informative. It’s nice to see feminism and environmentalism aren’t mutually exclusive issues.

    Just finished Outdated: Why Dating Is Ruining Your Love Life. Really enjoyed it, especially how it validated that grey space we’ve all spent time in. Looking forward to reading more from Feministing editors!

  • Recently, several male friends of mine have gotten involved in Women’s Studies classes and other class discussions that involve feminism, and a few have mentioned that they have felt alienated or attacked in such classes because they are male. I have not been in the same classes, so I can’t say first-hand what is going [...]

    I’ve always loved Anne Hathaway, she’s sweet, talented, an unapologetic activist, and somehow manages to keep her cool in a crisis. Not many Hollywood actresses are capable of all that.

    Just saw Makers on the internet. It was great to hear about consciousness raising and Roe v. Wade from the people who really lived it, but I was disappointed that online feminists were not included. Just because we’re marching in cyberspace instead of the streets doesn’t mean we’re not marching.

    Given what little I’ve seen of Family Guy, I was bracing myself for Seth MacFarlane to do something like this. I do think Anne Hathaway had a great mention of combating violence against women at the end of her speech: “Here’s hoping that sometime in the not-so-distant future the misfortunes of Fantine will only be [...]

    Also, lest we forget, there is overlap between the disability community and the LGBTQ community.
