Welcome to Monday ~ 3 September 2012

Welcome to Monday dear feminausts. If you were lucky enough to be in Melbourne over the weekend, we had glorious sunshine. I nearly kicked my heels every time I went outside.

I hope you enjoy the links of feministy news below. If you ever have any suggestions for what to post send em through to info@feminaust.org.  And remember, as usual, please don’t shoot the messenger.

‘She Who Must Not Be Named’ Award

It goes to the #destroyingthejoint hashtag on Twitter. It is referring Alan Jones making a big fuss about how women are trying to rule the world and in those attempts are coming close to destroying it! Here’s a good response from Simone McDonnell – ALL HAIL THE DESTRUCTION TRAIN!

Oh and Equal Pay Day was on Sunday! It’s getting worse (someone should jump out of a cake and tell Alan Jones)… sooooooo depressing. 

Vile Misogyny

Anne Summers contributes to the conversation about our PMs ‘vile and misogynist’ treatment. She’s already totally amazing, but in this piece, she discusses the examples of abuse against the PM which would make for a successful workplace discrimination application.

Jane Caro provides us with a commentary on the week just passed, and all of the moments where intelligent, pro-equality men were embarrassed by the rest of their gender.

Supporting da laydeeees

Liptember campaign (which runs throughout September) aims to raise awareness of gender specific mental health issues for women.

Renee Adams writes on the Conversation about how there’s no business case for putting women on boards (just cos they’re women).

Megan Clement-Couzner writes about the funding cuts the community sector in NSW is experiencing with some sweet feminist analysis (lessons for all States).

Work-life balance

Annabel Crabb wrote a great piece on whether (wo)man can have it all.

Research released by Diversity Council Australia has found fathers want flexibility in the workplace so they can better balance family and career.
