Welcome to Monday! ~ 1st December 2014

World-AIDS-Day-2014-Theme-3HAPPY WORLD AIDS DAY!!! Don’t forget to think about all the women around the world who are living with HIV and AIDS today and spare a thought for the amazing teams of researchers, community workers, healthcare professionals and others who are fighting back.

Sorry about the radio silence lovely feminausts. It’s been a long month and we’ve been very busy. But now we’re onto the countdown to the end of another very feminaust year and soon it will be time to start preparations and planning for 2015. I would like to take this opportunity to invite any and all of you to contact us if you’re interested in supporting feminaust into the future. IsBambi and I are both very busy chicas and IsBambi is leaving Australia soon to look for adventures elsewhere and so will just not have the time she used to have to support this little enterprise. If you think you could lend a hand, we’d love to hear from you info@feminaust.org is how you find us!

Now, what’s been happening in feminausty news recently?

YWCA Victoria have started a Christmas Fundraiser.

And UN Women are having a fundraiser in NSW!

Gender and sport. Why do we still find this so tricky?!

In the latter case, I saw much debate surrounding Usanakorn’s gender unfold on Facebook, where the conversational tone was more along the lines of “it totally looks like a dude” as opposed to, “Hmm, how can we approach transgender issues respectfully?”

 

What Would Tara Do? (WWTD)

How do you deal with trolls spurting disgusting rape threats? Tell their mothers!

Are you a South feminAustralian? Do this survey!

Are you a NSWelshwoman who wants to get into media? There’s a mentoring program just for you and applications are open now!

Angela Merkel, the quiet German.

An International Street Harrassment Survey, brought to you by Hollaback! Do it.

Women in Science and Technology. Awesome.

Young people in Australia are continuing to experience high levels of stress and fear their dreams may be out of reach.
