Pussy Riot, the Russian feminist punk band that are imprisoned for playing a punk prayer against Vladamir Putin have had their jail terms extended. That sucks. Not just cos they’re feminists, but as freedom of speech has gone out of the window. The offending song itself is a bit too hardcore for my tastes, but it’s about as punk rock as it gets in terms of its anti-establishment sentiment.
Ally Fogg has drawn inspiration from the Blues on why men’s rights and feminism are usually compatible. The points seem pretty much bang on the money.
Jessica Valenti, whose book Full Frontal Feminism is well worth a read, has responded to the article written by Anne-Marie Slaughter on women having it all that I blogged about previously. She’s picked up on a lot of points that I didn’t even see. Bugger.
