the feminist vote: clinton vs sanders

Eden Faithfull
No comments

Since the time of Julius Caesar, politics has had the profound ability to polarise the members of a community. Even in our relatively peaceful contemporary era, allegiant political supporters have their back-stabbing daggers at the ready – and for much less than the subjugation of the Roman Republic. In the months leading up to the…

Arabella Close
No comments

  Last year, a group of students from the University of Sydney Wom*n’s Collective began teaching workshops on feminism to high school students under the brand fEMPOWER.

a lament: the movement magician of second year

Carissa Lee
No comments

I am an awkward-as-fuck baby giraffe of a human being. It’s not that I’m uncomfortable in my body, I like to think that I’m so insanely comfortable, that I forget about my surroundings, leaving me susceptible to bumping into things and tripping on uneven ground. I like to drag my feet because I love indulging in…

There are two reasons why it was easy for me to travel and explore new cities. First, I lived in Kuala Lumpur for most of my life until I moved to Melbourne. Kuala Lumpur is a 2 hour flight to most South East Asian cities, food havens and tropical islands. Second, budget airlines expanded in…

Cin Peeler
3 comments

2015 was the year Australians weren’t quite sure who their Prime Minister was. As of this year, ‘Netflix and Chill’ has officially been around long enough to be embarrassingly misused by big brands and your clueless uncle alike. And 2015 has brought hashtag activism into its own, with everything and everyone having their own Twitter…

Danika Kimball
One comment

Spike Lee has come up with a solution to America’s college rape epidemic – or so he thinks. The film director recently spoke with Stephen Colbert, and argued that ending sexual assault begins with women denying men sex, stating, ‘I think a sex strike could really work on college campuses where there’s an abundance of…

Every day in Australia, police face 657 cases of violence against women. Every week, 2 women are murdered, often by somebody they know. While watching Hitting Home, Sarah Ferguson’s new documentary on Australian domestic violence, my friend wonders aloud, ‘Has it always been this bad?’ I answer: ‘Yes.’ It’s just that this year, we’re paying…

the man at the pub: a story of casual sexism

Eden Gillespie
One comment

I was having dinner in a cosy, welcoming pub with my family when a loud voice, belonging to the burly man seated behind us, interrupted our conversation. He was with a young couple, aged about 30, and their two young boys who had long hair and looked around the ages of eight and six. Each…

Mary Ntalianis

It’s time for Marvel to stop erasing their strong, intelligent and brilliant female superheroes from the Cinematic Universe. In 2016, two Marvel movies are set to be released and yet again, neither of these movies will have a female protagonist. This is a repetition of why the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been continually criticised by…
