Feminism and Leftist Men

Latha Pollitt takes up the much-needed discussion of women and the left for The Nation. At this spring’s Left Forum, only 15 of 440 panels even touched on a feminist issue. The problem is class, say leftist men, not feminism.

Funny. The leftist men of the 70s said exactly the same thing. “Trust us, girls, your boat will rise along with ours. Now be a good girl and get me some coffee. After all, activism is man’s work.”

Reproductive health isn’t a topic that Occupy will take up, writes Pollitt. She argues that with one in three women having an abortion in her lifetime and almost every woman on contraception at some time in her life, reproductive health should be a core concern of the Occupy movement.

And having just attended my first NOW meeting in decades, Occupy Philadelphia got a much more favorable review for being very supportive of “women’s issues” in this town.

A woman’s right to control her fertility is not confined to the ‘culture wars’. There is no issue more statistically associated with a woman’s lifetime earnings and lifestyle than her ability to control her fertility and childbearing years.

In New York, Women Occupying Wall Street is planning a Feminist General Assembly for May 17 at 6:30 pm in Washington Square Park.

Women Voters

Politico asks if finally this is the year that America’s women voters will determine the election results.

For 220 years, picking the president has remained, at least in terms of statistically provable results despite the 19th Amendment, a man’s prerogative. But this may finally change in 2012.

Meanwhile, the latest polls suggest another important shift: Younger women may be the kingmakers — offsetting Romney’s gain among older white men angry at their fate in this struggling economy.

Will the ‘War On Women’ Make Feminism Fashionable?

Writing for The Washington Post, Rebecca Traister says that Republicans have all but buried the image of the feminist as a mirthless, hirsute, sex-averse succubus — that grotesque stand-in for real women like the three generations of females above, photographed at Seattle’s UniteWomen rally.

Heartland Institute

ThinkProgress directs us to ClimateWire, who published a story last Friday saying that the anti-global warming campaign billboard like the one above — featuring unibomber Ted Kaczynski, mass murderer Charles Manson and Cuban dictator Fidel Castro — came as a surprise to Heartland’s board of directors. However, the board supports the tactics, except for a single resignation.

Yesterday, news broke that Eli Lilly, BB&T and Pepsi will no longer support the Heartland Institute, supporting State Farm, GM and at least 150,000 individuals who have signed petitions condemning Heartland.

Young Adults & Birth Control Knowledge

Guttmacher Institute reports that an astounding 50% of young adults between the ages of 18 and 29 told researchers that contraception doesn’t matter because “when it is your time to get pregnant, it will happen.” This group of women has the highest rate of unintended pregnancies and also abortion rates in America.

The new report is far from the first study to point out the educational gap that is often a consequence of abstinence-only education. While the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently reported teen pregnancies in 2010 dropped to the lowest rate since 1940, it found that states with abstinence-only policies continue to experience higher rates of teen pregnancies.

US International Family Planning Assistance

The $35 million designated for the United Nations Population Fund brings contraception to 31.6 million women and couples:

  • 9.4 million unintended pregnancies, including 4.1 million unplanned births, are averted;
  • 4 million induced abortions are averted (3 million of them unsafe);
  • 22,000 maternal deaths are averted;
  • 2.8 million fewer healthy years of life (DALYs) are lost among women; and
  • 96,000 fewer children lose their mothers.

The World Observes Earth Hour | Eliot Spitzer Replaces Olbermann | Contraception & Women's Earnings

Daily French Roast

Anne is reading …

Keith Olbermann Fired!

Current TV would never have Anne at 8pm, because she has never been a fan of Keith Olbermann’s style of journalism. Disliking Olbermann so much, we never knew that Jennifer Granholm had a show after the loudmouth, confrontational guy who can’t seem to get along with anyone on TV.

In an accidental interception last night, we had the pleasure of watching former New York Governor/former CNN show anchor Eliot Spitzer, who replaced the fired Olbermann Friday night in his new home on Current TV. Learning about Granholm is a real problem for we who actually own the url RachelMaddowWomen.com.

It appears that Olbermann has had nothing but problems with Current’s low-rent startup culture.

Current TV founders Al Gore and Joel Hyatt said in a letter to viewers that they decided to cut bait because the relationship no longer represented “the values of respect, openness, collegiality, and loyalty to our viewers.” via Washington Post

Eliot Spitzer is one of the finest minds on television. Anne was truly bereft when his information-rich CNN shoe ‘In the Arena’ was cancelled. Sorry Ed Show, we’re outta here.

As for Olbermann, The Hollywood Reporter reports that Olbermann is scheduled to appear on ‘The Late Show with David Letterman’ Tuesday, April 3.

How Access to the Pill Boosted Women’s Wages Live Science

“As the pill provided younger women the expectation of greater control over childbearing, women invested more in their human capital and careers,” study researcher Martha Bailey, an economist at the University of Michigan, said in a statement. “Most affected were women with some college, who benefitted from these investments through remarkable wage gains over their lifetimes.”

Earth Hour

The year’s Earth Hour will be the largest ever, with 5,411 cities and towns, and 147 countries taking part. Earth Hour, the environmentally symbolic annual switch-off of lights for one hour this Saturday night, is to extend into space this year, with the International Space Station taking part for the first time, writes The Guardian.

Launched in 2007 only in Sydney, initially as an energy-saving measure, the hour has spread internationally and become a symbolic event to encourage environmental action and awareness. It is a rolling hour at 8.30-9.30pm across the world on 31 March. Despite the event’s high profile, it has also drawn criticism, including from green campaigners. George Marshall, founder of the Climate Outreach Information Network, has previously written in the Guardian that it sends out the wrong message. “Asking people to sit in the dark plays very well to a widely held prejudice that “the greens” want us all to go back to living in caves,” he said.

ReutersClimate Change Comes to GM

Atlantic Wire reports that General Motors has pulled its $15,000 annual funding from the climate-change-skeptical Heartland Institute. The gesture is largely symbolic given the institute’s multiple billions, writes The Guardian. Former vice-chairman Bob Lutz once called the scientific arguments around climate change “a total crock of shit.”

To clarify, The Guardian writes that the GM donation of 20 years wasn’t earmarked for advocacy against climate change. But the connections have become too complex to explain to the general public.

Pesticides & Bees

Scientists have discovered ways in which even low doses of widely-used pesticides can harm bumblebees and honeybees. The pesticides interfere with the bees’ homing abilities, causing them to lose their way reports Reuters.
