Unlocking the puzzle: HIV in East Africa (femonomics)

A New Publication: ActionAid: “Her Stories, Leurs Histoires” (in English and French) (Action Aid) Highly recommended.


Young Visionaries Project: Women’s Health Clinic in Rural Nepal (Akimbo)

Turning The Wheel Of Interfaith Dialogue In India (Counter Currents)

Old Bombs Shatter Laotian Women’s Lives (Women’s eNews) “War-era ordnance kills and maims hundreds of Laotian villagers each year. Eighty-five percent of victims are men, leaving numerous women to fend for their families.”

Not All Working Women Are Equal (IPS)


Why we lack a Julia Gillard in Britain (NewStatesman) “Australia could have a female prime minister by the end of August. So, what’s stopping women reaching the top table again over here?”

State of the (Superhero) Nation: Faiza Hussein in British Comics (Muslimah Media Watch)

Latin America

Argentina: Guarantee Women’s Access to Health Care (Human Rights Watch)

Can Soccer Reduce Brazil’s Domestic Violence? (Ms. Magazine)

Middle East

Nothing is worse for a Saudi man than imagining himself a woman (Saudiwoman’s Weblog)

Israel: Jewish Women Take On the Orthodox (AWID)

Northern America

America has a Nativism problem, not a “Muslim Problem” (Sepia Mutiny)

Fighting for Prison Health Care Above the Norm (The Body) “On June 10, 1993, I was released from Albion State Correctional Facility for Women. “91G1505,” as I had been called for the last three years of my life, was no longer property of the State of New York…. During my incarceration, I was a victim of medical neglect due to policy and procedures.

Of opprobrium and cavemen: slightly updated (Hugo Schwyzer) “At the Good Men Project site, there’s a lot of affirmation of the good that men do, and that’s fine. We all need reminders of our essential decency. But where I think Tom and I disagree is about the nature of masculinity itself.”


Five days, done and dusted. Reflections on a 93p/day diet (Musings of an Inappropriate Woman)


International Indigenous Women’s Environmental and Reproductive Health Symposium Declaration (INCITE! Blog)

New Blog I’m digging: The Feminist Poster Project “This website archives and shares feminist posters, postcards and stickers for you to print and paste. It offers a space for inspiration and a network for feminist poster artists.”
