Friday Feminist Fuck Yeah: Brown anti-violence zine

Feminists at Brown University have gone old school.

Yesterday student Lena Sclove filed federal Title IX and Clery Act complaints against the Rhode Island university, which has been in the news recently for tolerating sexual violence on campus. On campus, organizers are coupling these high-profile efforts with that traditional feminist punk protest: the zine. Bluestockings Magazine, a student multimedia collective, has put out a gorgeous issue exposing and resisting violence on campus. The survivor narratives are powerful and the design striking, but perhaps most noteworthy is the fierce utopianism, a refusal to accept rape culture as an inevitability to be managed rather than abolished. “Re:imagine (a world without sexual violence),” the zine demands, right above ...

Feministing Follow Friday: Student Anti-Violence Orgs

On Wednesday, Obama announced that he is creating a task force to combat campus sexual violence. It’s not perfect — it’s pretty hetero, its focus is too carceral — but presidential commitment is also a big step, and I basically cried tears of happiness all day (and then ate chocolate cake). In his speech, Obama gave a major shout-out to student organizers, so I wanted to honor that by pointing out some of my favorite student-run anti-violence organizations and collectives on Twitter. Including my own. Sorry.

Kick off Sexual Assault Awareness Month with “Surviving in Numbers”

In honor of April, Sexual Assault Awareness Month, she has launched “Surviving in Numbers,” a Tumblr dedicated to amplifying the voices of campus survivors by publishing pictures of posters like her own. Although reminiscent of projects ...
