grey matter: reshaping female sexuality and erotica

Eden Faithfull
No comments

None of us will ever know how many private moments under the bed sheets with a book light it has inspired, nor do we know how much marital boredom it has enlivened with riding crops and silk ties, but the new wonder-product otherwise known as the “women’s Viagra” of our time, Fifty Shades of Grey,…

nobody puts baby in the corner: bodily autonomy and infants

Eleanor Danenberg
One comment

The power that parents have over their children is not always wielded in a benevolent manner; how many of us have looked through old family photos to find that, when we were too young to know better or even protest, we were dressed in the most embarrassing outfits by our parents? For instance, a glimpse…

eyes on the prize: choices and feminism

Jay Ong
No comments

The essence of feminism is clear and simple: equal political, economic and social rights among genders. A fight for equal rights across all fields, with a focus on the status of women. A fight against sexism and the objectification of women. Full stop. But alas, as with every issue open to the scrutiny of the…

debate or degradation? when high-brow bigotry hijacks the marriage equality discussion

Meg Rawson
No comments

What a disgusting week of political dribble on marriage equality. Just when you believe nothing more offensive or ridiculous could be done, the people responsible for carrying out governance aim another notch lower to seal the deal that they are woefully out of touch and out-dated. Once again, government ministers flouted all common sense and…

lessons learned from bad relationships and beyond

Eleanor Danenberg
No comments

As an unapologetic Sex and The City fan, after re-watching episodes over and over again, and reliving the characters’ relationship high and lows, I have come to a conclusion: as Carrie, Miranda, Samantha, and Charlotte learn from the mistakes in their relationships, so do we, the fans and viewers. The girls certainly have had many…

  Disgraced wellness blogger Belle Gibson has promised to tell all in an exclusive interview with Tara Brown on 60 Minutes this Sunday night. Whether you believe that giving air-time to someone who has lied about having terminal cancer is right or wrong, it promises to be a talking point. Gibson admitted in April this…

‘turning gay’ for Ruby Rose: progressive or problematic?

Clara Borg
No comments

Two weeks ago—after months and months of anticipation—Netflix released online the entire third season of Orange Is The New Black, prompting one of two reactions from fans: a)    Watching all 13 episodes in under 24 hours, then proceeding to frantically vent about all of the feels on every single social media platform available. Or, conversely,…

tv news: is hannibal too gay for NBC?

Kiah Meadows
2 comments

Anybody keeping up on pop culture news has most likely heard that NBC has cancelled Bryan Fuller’s operatic adaptation of Thomas Harris’ Hannibal series. The series’ third season returned to the aforementioned network on June fourth, to 2.57 million viewers, and saw just 1.6 million the next week’s episode, which aired during an NBA final….

tim hunt resignation was not too far

Eliza Graves-Browne
One comment

    I have sympathy for Tim Hunt. First, the public shaming, and now, according to an interview in the Observer, being “hung out to dry” by scientific establishments. I agree that this situation would be horrendous for anyone, and that these comments may have very well been a nervous error, a miscommunication or a…

things that make you go OM: orgasmic meditation for personal development

Cassie Lane

My phone rings. I am so preoccupied by the book I’m reading, I completely forget I’m expecting a call. ‘Hello. Cassie speaking.’ ‘Hi Cassie, it’s Rosa. I believe you were interested in booking a session with me?’ My stomach drops. ‘Oh… yes… hello.’ Heat crawls up my neck and over my reddening face. ‘When are…

Who gets to be a jerk (and why do they want to)?

Shannon Clarke

When Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie told graduates at Wellesley College to forget likeability, it made headlines. Not only because when Adichie, a prolific novelist and feminist, speaks people tend to listen, but also because this is not something young women hear often. ‘All over the world, girls are raised to be make themselves likeable, to twist…

top five reasons mad max: fury road is an instant feminist classic

Emma Robinson
No comments

It wasn’t until a self-righteous contributor for the site ‘Return of Kings’, Aaron Clarey, penned a tantrum about feminist Trojan horses taking over Hollywood film that I had any interest in seeing Mad Max: Fury Road. Good action films with well developed plots and at least one complicated and compelling female character are both joys…

whining and dining: gender imbalances in ‘fictional dinner party’

A recent dinner party I attended left quite a foul taste in my mouth. Well, not a literal taste in my mouth. Nothing was wrong with the food, or the drink. Actually, there was no food or drink. You see, the dinner party was not real. But the reality of said dinner party has lurched…

Mad Max: Fury Road is the gift that keeps on giving. The first gift was, of course, an action film that smashed sexist stereotypes. The latest offering in the franchise of post-apocalyptic action films, Mad Max features a diverse and fascinating cast of female characters who are central to the plot, including Charlize Theron’s kick-ass…
