Global Feminist Link Love: May 17 – 23

May 24, 2010

Hey Global Feminists!

Here are a list of links about what other global feminists were up to this past week. We also want to know: What have you been reading/writing this week? Don’t forget to spread your own link love in the comments!

  • England and Wales Move to Grant Anonymity to Rape Defendants (The Curvature) “The thing is, this has been tried before. As the article notes, it was tried from 1976 to 1988. What was the reason it was repealed? Feminist man-hating? No — the fact that it made victims less likely to report.”
  • Want to know why we should get out of Afghanistan? (Philobiblon) “It was a Human Rights Watch report last year, which found 60-80% of the marriages of Afghan women and girls are forced, and learning that the brave women of Rawa are calling for withdrawal that led me to change my mind. Having just read the autobiography of Malalai Joya, an outstanding Afghan woman MP, I’m now even more strongly of that view.”

Latin America

  • Estrategias Frente a los Fundamentalismos Religiosos: 27 de abril (International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission) “Por la mañana la facilitadora Tatiana Cordero (Ecuador) brindó su taller “Curar la Homosexualidad” para lo cual propuso una intensa dinámica de presentación en la que l*s participantes pudieron detectar y compartir todos los factores, negativos y positivos, que posibilitaron su salida del closet (esto es asumir y visibilizar públicamente su identidad de género y su orientación sexual).”

Middle East

Northern America

    I reviewed two more feminist / gender studies books. I hope you don’t mind my linking to them here as they were both great and deserve more attention (the books, not my silly attempts at reviews!):

    The Greatest Experiment Ever Performed on Women: Exploding the Estrogen Myth by Barbara Seaman
    Between XX and XY: Intersexuality and the Myth of Two Genders by Gerald Callahan

    I wrote up a blog post called: “Ad Feministem, a Lesson in Logic” on Sawt Al Niswa (Arab Feminist Webspace)!

    I’ve written about the sentencing of Steven Monjeza and Tiwonge Chimbalanga to 14 years in prison with hard labour:
