Hey Global Feminists!

Africa

  • Africa: Notes From the Field (Global Voices) “A roundup of blog posts of Concern US aid workers blogging from Sub-Saharan Africa.”
  • DR Congo massacre uncovered (Al Jazeera English) “The Lord’s Resistance Army killed about 300 people and kidnapped 250 more in a rampage in the Democratic Republic of Congo in December 2009, according to an international rights group and the UN.”
  • Debating Sexuality in South Africa (Africa is a Country)

Asia


Europe

Latin America

Middle East

  • ‘Axis of Evil’ Label’s Effects On Youth In Iran (Muslim Voices) “There are many times when I see something on the news and, it may be valid from a political standpoint, but if you’re gonna show this why don’t you also show the other side?”
  • “Save the Muslim Girl!” (Rethinking Schools Online) “Young adult titles that focus on the lives of Muslim girls in the Middle East, written predominantly by white women, have appeared in increasing numbers since Sept. 11, 2001… We believe that these novels can best be used to teach about the common Western stereotypes that are universalized in these books rather than to teach about Afghanistan, Pakistan, or Islamic cultures.”
  • Iraqi women soldiers dissed by male counterparts
  • An Iraqi-American Votes in America (Global Fund for Women) “My vote is my voice for equality. Of course, I do have a realistic view of the work ahead. The psychological and emotional trauma that plagues Iraqi’s and the years of healing that the country still needs to do. But with each election, I hope, we move a little closer to a better Iraq.”
  • The United Arab Emirates: Women’s Rights in Progress? (The Association for Women’s Rights in Development)

Northern America

Oceania

    Here’s an example of commodification of men in advertising. This is a Norwegian public service message to get more people to rinse their recyclables. It’s hard not to shake your finger and ask, “So how does it feel?”
