You’ll all have read this Ashley Judd piece for The Daily Beast already, I’m sure, but I finally got around to it and it’s just as wonderful as I’d heard. Particularly this:
Patriarchy is not men. Patriarchy is a system in which both women and men participate. It privileges, inter alia, the interests of boys and men over the bodily integrity, autonomy, and dignity of girls and women. It is subtle, insidious, and never more dangerous than when women passionately deny that they themselves are engaging in it.
Don’t read the comments, though; they’re even stupider than usual.
Advert for a Norwegian bank. Starring George Clooney. Tagline: “Some people are lucky in life. For the rest of us, saving up a bit can be smart.” (via @sarramanning)
