It’s this idea of “Hey, dudes are dudes.”

"Researchers at the University of Western Australia decided to revamp the way they studied Viking remains. Previously, researchers had misidentified skeletons as male simply because they were buried with their swords and shields. (Female remains were identified by their oval brooches, and not much else.) By studying osteological signs of gender within the bones themselves, researchers discovered that approximately half of the remains were actually female warriors, given a proper burial with their weapons.”

Women have always fought. We have always been there, ‘contributing to history’. Our own, modern sexism contributes to the erasure of it.

The two Indian girls who were gang-raped and murdered earlier this week lived in Uttar Pradesh, which state Congress leader Rita Bahuguna Joshi has said is “one of the worst places to be a woman.” With 200 million inhabitants, Uttar Pradesh is India’s most populous state, and its poorest –– more than 60 million people live on less than $1.25 a day.
According to the National Crime Records Bureau, an average of five women were raped every day in Uttar Pradesh in 2009.

Burka Blue : No Burka ! (by lisseman)

This is an anonymous (for obvious reasons), all-girl band in Afghanistan called The Burka Band. Talk about badasses.

Don’t bother reading the comments unless you feel like killing yourself…

"The idea that sex is something a woman gives a man, and she loses something when she does that, which again for me is nonsense. I want us to raise girls differently where boys and girls start to see sexuality as something that they own, rather than something that a boy takes from a girl."

I need to see her TED Talk. She rocks.

"Women have only been allowed to be judges since 2007, and the new constitution guarantees their right to hold high positions in the judiciary. Yet a 2010 court decision barred women judges from the State Council, a powerful judicial body that regulates disputes between individuals and the state and reviews legislation.
After several women were rejected for membership on the council, Mervat Tallawy, head of the state’s National Council for Women, said that in January she wrote to the State Council demanding it take on women judges in light of the constitution.
The Council replied by saying her letter “violated appropriateness and manners” and it sought criminal action against the National Council for Women.”
Knew that shit was too good to be true.
