Fighting with the Sky

Thursday Link Love!

Posted on: October 29, 2009

Happy Thursday everyone!  You wouldn’t know it by looking at this blog, but I have actually had a pretty productive last three days, so that makes me pretty happy, even if I’m not where I would like to be with these grad school applications.  Here are some of my favorite posts from the past couple days.  Don’t forget to leave links that what you have been writing and reading in the comments!

Disney characters: not great role models [Equal Writes] – is this a surprise to anyone?  What I like about this post is that it also looks at the examples that the male characters are setting as well as the female characters.

Privilege conceals itself from those who possess it: of feminist epistemology, marriage, and “standpoint theory.” [Hugo Schwyzer] – this is just a great post, you should read it.

Disability and Loss [Womanist Musings] – Renee looks at how her disability has created some senses of loss in her life.

Violence Against Women and Girls Surges on TV [Women & Hollywood] – there is an alarming rate of the depicition of violence against women on television lately…what does this mean for our society?
