feminism, privilege and race

| No Comments

Here's a great blog post I read earlier today. I thought of it immediately when I read Weber's description of the controlling image of a "working woman." The post (which links to the original article it responds to) is for me a good example of the critiques many feminists of color have been raising for a century now about the mainstream women's movements.

I found this on yahoo news and thought it would be interesting to read because it ties in with the class. The article deals with the immigration law in arizona and speaks about the presidents reaction to it.

Sorry, I didnt know how to upload the file, but if you just cut and paste, it should work just fine.

Here is a youtube address to a Daily Show recap which feature's Joe Biden's comment about how the TV show Will & Grace has educated the American public. They also talk about gays on TV briefly. It's also just in general pretty funny.

P.S. Is there a way to embed a video on here? This blog program is not intuitive at all.
