Is Liberal Feminism even Feminism any more? + 56 Comments!

we reprint this great post from DavinaSquirrel with thankspatriarchy Firstly, what feminism is: Feminism is a political movement for the emancipation and liberation for all females, regardless of race, class, sexual orientation, reproductive status, disability status, etc. Secondly, what feminism is not: Feminism is not a catch-all social justice movement (although sometimes areas that affect women do become highlighted). Feminism is not a social club, after school activity at uni, an identity, or a hobby. Feminist is not something you are by virtue of your birth as a female.

While feminism may benefit other members of society (ie males) that is not our primary aim, more of a knock-on effect. This can be seen in the very few countries with a female majority government in combination with feminist principles. In short, all of society benefits from female liberation, disproving the (MRA) lie that a matriarchy is just the reverse of a patriarchy with males becoming the oppressed class. In the current circumstances of a patriarchy, all men benefit from a system of male domination and female subjugation, whether they like it, or reject it, or not.

A very small percentage of males with a social conscience will champion social justice causes, including feminism. This however, does not automatically make them “a feminist”, but a “feminist ally”, in the same way a white person working for black justice is an ally.

STOP Femicide. Mass Demos In Argentina vs Male Violence

#NiUnaMenos      BY     http://revolution-news.com   An Argentine woman is murdered every 31 hours in a domestic violence incident

CGnDvb8XIAAtMJx

Buenos Aires – The # NiUnaMenos (“Not One Less”) campaign against femicides and gender violence started last month as a grassroots protest against the epidemic of violent crimes committed to women and the lack of action by state authorities on solving the crimes and prosecuting the perpetrators.

Igniting popular support for this movement against femicides was last months murder of Chiara Paez (14), a pregnant teenager, that was found dead and buried in her 16-year-old boyfriend, Manuel Mansilla’s backyard in the city of Rufino (Santa Fe).femicide

Though Chiara’s murder triggered a sense of social urgency, organizers have been discussing possible moves for months. In March, they held a meeting at the Museo del Libro y de la Lengua. Continue reading STOP Femicide. Mass Demos In Argentina vs Male Violence

Eleven Feminisms in One: Going Viral Despite Internet Patriarchy

Dozens of varying Feminisms are undermining long established patrarchal priveliges worldwide

Feminism is under fierce attack on the internet. When looking for illustrations for this post I found many anti feminist sites. In the images I saw stacks of doctored photos denigrating feminism by mockery, divide-and-rule, inventions, junk science, misandry, rape celebration, patronizing, etc.

Mostly it seemed to me like pathetic bleating by Nth American men about losing any of their socially permitted patriarchal privileges,… But switch language on Google and you get similar results in different contexts..

Seems like we’re living through  giant  social battles that are going on around the world, in which  millions of women feel empowered by a perceived freedom and individuality on social media, threatening to undermine long established systems of cultural semi slavery, and provoking ‘testerical’ reactions from religious and authority figures.

One classic sexist tactic is  to single out  and exaggerate separatist ideas and continuously brand all feminists as ‘smelly, hairy, man haters’ etc. Continue reading Eleven Feminisms in One: Going Viral Despite Internet Patriarchy

The Women’s Revolution in Rojava: Defeating Fascism by Constructing an Alternative Society

by Dilar Dirik

This piece is a book chapter in “A Small Key Can Open A Large Door: The Rojava Revolution” by Strangers in a Tangled Wilderness (Ed.), March 2015 (Combustion Books).24795b9d45550d61cc9f6bee7a09a629_LThe resistance against the Islamic State in Kobanê has woken the world to the cause of Kurdish women. Typical of the media’s myopia, instead of considering the radical implications of women taking up arms in a patriarchal society – especially against a group that systematically rapes and sells women as sex-slaves – even fashion magazines appropriate the struggle of Kurdish women for their own sensationalist purposes today.
