Happy Friday! Congratulations on making it through Week 2 and hopefully things aren’t getting too hectic too soon!
Take a look at some of the feminist issues that have been addressed this week:
1. Is House Work Real Work? A democratic strategist is in hot water for claiming that Ann Romney (stay-at home mom) “never worked a day in her life.”
2. Love Nicki Minaj? Hate Nicki Minaj? Regardless, you can’t deny the impact she’s had on the music industry as one of few female rappers.
3. Being Hit Where It Hurts: Not only do women make less than men, we’re also unequally affected by the economic recession.
4. Called Out: Ashley Judd highlighting the issue of women’s portrayal in the media and naming major perpetrators!
5. Who Doesn’t Need Feminism? Really cool feminist project by students at Duke!
6. [Slight Tangent] Cory Booker, Mayor of New Jersey and the Commencement Speaker for the Class of 2012, is a hero. : )
