misogyny and male apathy: a wake up call

Ash Imani
No comments

When I first saw the ‘catcall’ video, showing the harassment experienced by Shoshana Roberts as she walked through New York City, I was disturbed. I wasn’t disturbed by incessant and often aggressive intrusions into her day, however.  My knee-jerk reaction was to be offended for myself. I had, at various points in my life, engaged…

Emilie Bertsch

Queensland Campervan hire company, Wicked Campers, has recently come under fire from all sides for perpetuating rape culture by plastering misogynistic slogans on their camper vans for hire. The specific slogan under question, which states ‘In every princess there is a little slut who wants to try it just once’, has led to a petition…

masculinism and the ‘f’ word: a terrifying tale in modern discourse

Brianna Doolan

That’s right people, masculinism is a thing. When faced with this term, several questions spring to the feminist mind; is masculinism the countermovement to feminism? Is it pure misogyny? Or, is it simply a glorious celebration of what it is to be a man? In an article written in 2012 by Melissa Blais & Frances…

misandry might hurt but misogyny kills

Sigrid Cross

  Trigger warning: for violence against women and misogynistic language. Margaret Atwood once wrote that ‘Men are afraid that women will laugh at them. Women are afraid that men will kill them’. Elliot Rodger has become America’s latest mass murderer. His motivation? A hatred of women. There’s no way to tiptoe around it. Rodger was…

where are we going wrong with women in sport?

Stella Crawford

If the back (and often front) cover of your local News Corp paper is anything to go by, sport is big news in this country. The last few months have been sufficient proof, if anyone needed any more, that a culture of sexism in sport continues to be tolerated – in fact – accepted, in…

men are always men, but girls are sexy

Rianh Silvertree

A recent Facebook post by a male friend-of-friend read: ‘girls dancing is sexy, girls walking is sexy and girls sitting is sexy.’ My reply, of course, was; ‘unless the act is intentionally sexy, it’s just walking, dancing and sitting,’ but I’m very much afraid that I was wrong. Unfortunately and, as we all know, his…

i hate these blurred lines: misogyny and the perpetuation of rape culture in music

Ruby Grant

Through popular culture we create and reiterate our notions of gender and sexuality in society. Sorry to get all Sociology 101 on you, but when I saw the hit ‘Blurred Lines’ by Robin Thicke soar to number one, I couldn’t help but wonder what kind of messages are being sent here in terms of gender…
