5m see Shock video ‘Oppressed Majority’ ..men are women

Wolf-whistles, “hey baby” and “keep smiling honey!” are the types of things you’d expect to hear directed at a woman walking down the street. But what would the world look like if gender roles were reversed? A new short film seeks to answer that question — and the result is chilling. output_XXIN1b

On what seems to be just another ordinary day, a man is exposed to sexism and sexual violence in a society ruled by women… (10 minutes watch below)

STOP billions of attacks on Women: Campaign against Gender Violence

International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women
25 November

“Millions of women and girls around the world are assaulted, beaten, raped, mutilated or even murdered in what constitutes appalling violations of their human rights. […] We must fundamentally challenge the culture of discrimination that allows violence to continue. On this International Day, I call on all governments to make good on their pledges to end all forms of violence against women and girls in all parts of the world, and I urge all people to support this important goal.” Ban Ki-moon.

Violence against women and girls is one of the most widespread violations of human rights. In some countries, up to 7 in 10 women will be beaten, raped, abused or mutilated in their lifetimes. To raise awareness and trigger action to end this global phenomenon, International

Join the One Billion Rising campaign to end violence against women
Eve Ensler is urging us all to take part in a global day of action next Vlentine’s Day. People from 161 countries already have. Let’s join them
It is perhaps no surprise that it took an American and an unusually global one at that, to come up with this scheme. Eve Ensler, a writer and activist who founded a movement with a play about the vagina and launched V-Day, an international day of action to end violence against women, is aiming big. She wants to mark the day’s 15th anniversary in 2013 with a far larger project to get a billion of us to leave our homes, our workplaces, whatever we are doing, and dance. Women aged 15-44 are more at risk from rape and domestic violence than from cancer, car accidents, war and malaria.

Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women (25 November), and the ensuing 16 Days of Activism against Gender Violence are commemorated every year around the world. Continue reading “STOP billions of attacks on Women: Campaign against Gender Violence”

Long and shocking history of total repression of women

How Frightened Patriarchal Men Have Tried to Repress Women’s Sexuality Through History

Nasty conservative attacks on women would have been well received in the Roman senate, the Greek agora or most halls of religious power in early Europe

The sexual revolution was not sparked by a single incident and no particular group can claim credit (or blame) for carrying it forward. But all of us agree that it has indeed taken place and that American society has been transformed. A good gauge of the scope of the sexual revolution comes from its opponents. If it’s not Rick Santorum, it’s another conservative leader decrying the threat to our way of life posed by the loosening of traditional codes of sexual behavior.

But the opposition to the sexual revolution goes much further than sex. Continue reading “Long and shocking history of total repression of women”

Bye Bye Berlusconi Celebrations

bye bye rascist sexist cxapitalist B Boss

Miles de personas se congratulan por la salida de Berlusconi, pese a que no ha sido relevado por la presión popular sino por la presion de los mercados.

Wild Celebrations for the EXIT or Burlesconi

En medio de tanto agobio, las personas han buscado un motivo por el cual alegrarse aunque sea por unas horas.

Ante la inminente renuncia de Silvio Berlusconi, se multiplican a esta hora en Roma los carteles, eslóganes e ironías contra el premier: “12 de noviembre, fiesta de la Liberación”, afirma una de las pancartas exhibidas por los manifestantes frente a Palazzo Grazioli, residencia privada del jefe del gobierno.

No muy lejos de allí, frente al Palacio del Quirinal -sede de la presidencia de la República-, una muchedumbre canta coros de “aleluya” acompañada por una pequeña orquesta, mientras se ven flamear banderas con el tricolor italiano.

Mientras la gente comenzaba a acercarse al lugar, un grupo de militantes “anti-Silvio” llamado grupo de “Resistencia musical permanente” distribuyó pancartas en las que invitaba “a todo quien quiera a acercarse al Quirinale para cantar y sonar el Aleluya”.
