Join Us for a Feminist Friday Discussion at Things Matter!

The Feminist Friday discussion will be at Things Matter this week, and I have been given to understand that the topic will be particularly interesting.

Next week, on March 6, the discussion returns to Part Time Monster.

And now for your non-host Feminist link: Terri Hamrick, who I just discovered by browsing the Feminism tag, checked her “other” folder on Facebook recently and the experience inspired her to write a word or two about how women are treated online and about male privilege. This is my favorite part:

Recently there have been many discussions in public forums about privilege, and especially male privilege, how it is invisible to those who have it, and how the strategies of oppression focus on depersonalizing those who operate outside of the dominant group, how insidiously experiences are minimized, invalidated, gaslighted.  Being called out on behavior is not comfortable…  but learning about one’s privilege, and using it for elevating those who do not have it and advocating, being an ally, and least of all … NOT BEING PART OF THE PROBLEM… is all part of what it will take to end domestic violence, sexual assault, sexual harassment, stalking, and all forms of abuse of power and control.

See you Friday at Things Matter!

  1. Looking forward to it! I think part of the issue with male privilege is that we (society) do not expect good character and behavior out of everyone around us. I wrote an article about this and believe that this will be an on-going topic for me. I want to get more peoples thoughts on character and how it affects them (good and bad) I will join in the conversation on Friday work permitting.
