The International Campaign Against Honour Killing is a project started by Diana Nammi Director and Founder of London-based charity IKWRO which provides support and protection to women faced with 'honour'-based violence and forced marriage.

The project was established in the aftermath of the murder of Heshu Yones, in a climate of growing awareness of 'honour' as an factor in women's subordination. It was out of this awareness, and the understanding that 'honour'-based violence, and oppression against women justified in the name of 'honour' are widespread, and not confined to any particular group, that the movement towards an international project, to inform journalists, academics and the general public and provide a platform for activists to discuss their methods, opinions and experiences, and to share their campaigns within a community.

These aren't those women. They're how dudes want to imagine those women would be -- what Wire creator David Simon called writing "men with t*ts." They read like men's voices coming out of women's faces. Or worse, they read like the straight girls who make out with each other clubs, not because they enjoy making out with women but because they desperately want guys to pay attention to them.

This is not about these women wanting things; it's about men wanting to see them do things, and that takes something that really should be empowering -- the idea that women can own their sexuality -- and transforms it into yet another male fantasy. It takes away the actual power of the women and turns their "sexual liberation" into just another way for dudes to get off. And that is at least ten times as gross as regular cheesecake, minimum.

It’s a whole lot easier to emotionally manipulate someone who has been conditioned by our society to accept it. We continue to burden women because they don’t refuse our burdens as easily. It’s the ultimate cowardice.

A lengthy feminist analysis and very interesting comments discussion of George R. R. Martin's Game of Thrones - Sady covers a lot of my current dissonance about the series I'm in the midst of re-reading. Spoilers abound, so if you haven't read the series yet, bookmark this to come back to; it's very muc worth reading.

An MIT study that seems to have found that while “there’s little correlation between a group’s collective intelligence and the IQs of its individual members… if a group includes more women, its collective intelligence rises.” Not because women are smarter, but because women collaborate rather than compete.

Given the dearth of good roles for women, it was a good opportunity to consider how many roles written for men would have been, if tweaked appropriately (including, in some cases, the use of a time machine), perfect Helen Mirren vehicles. Let us begin.

Hilarious blog that critiques illustrations of women (primarily comics, but also other) and outlines why their renderings of boobs are wrong. Totally fucking wrong. Funny as hell.

Not to be a bitch or anything, but technically, they're suffragists, not suffragettes, BBC News. And back in the day, the British government was spying on them as discovered in recently released secret photos from the bygone era.
