In my last column, I wrote about some of the interesting material sent to me via Google alerts. Google alerts is a function that can send you anything written about a particular topic on the internet. Not long after this column was on Lip, the alert proved to be even more useful as I discovered…

the (non)sense of anti-feminists: google alerts on anti-feminism

Kate Barker
One comment

What would we do without Google? Well I for one would be slightly lost, given that I receive alerts on anything to do with anti-feminism published on the Internet. So what does an alert on anti-feminism send to my inbox several times a week? The answer is lots of articles expressing disgust and hatred towards…

the (non)-sense of anti-feminists: women who oppose feminism

Kate Barker
4 comments

This article is inspired by Margie Abbott, the wife of Tony Abbot who came out yesterday to dispute suggestions Tony Abbott has a problem with women in power. It’s not surprising Margie Abbott has said this considering they have been married a number of years, but is she defending the indefensible? This question led me…

But I was reminded of this with an article in a recent issue of The Sunday Age titled ‘Just like a feminist, only funnier’. It was an article about Caitlin Moran, a feminist, journalist and regular…

The Melbourne Writers Festival has come and gone for another year. For three wonderful days I listened to ideas, discussion and debates about all manner of things. But the favourite was seeing and hearing Germaine Greer. I didn’t go to the keynote she presented but thought an individual session would be more about her own…

the (non)sense of anti-feminists : the anti-feminist commenter

Kate Barker
One comment

If you were of the anti-feminist persuasion, you would probably say feminists have been getting too much space in the mainstream media of late and getting in a tizz over nothing. If you are of the feminist persuasion you would realise that feminists have actually identified an important issue: the double standards between Unilever’s ‘Love…

the (non)sense of anti-feminists: the end of the traditional family

Kate Barker
No comments

The world will end soon. And feminism will be responsible. Feminists are thought to have caused so much pain and destruction that very little will survive this feminist assault. Anti-feminists believe changes to the traditional family are some of the best examples of how relentless and damaging feminism has been. I don’t need to tell…
