This International Women’s Day, we’re looking at the achievements of our pioneering Australian female politicians. Leave your party politics at the door.
I feel the reason why we women don’t really see change is that we’re trying to convince the wrong people. Today, I feel we need to do something bold, but necessary.
While her outburst was deplorable, it seems that Cash might have been on the money. A true cultural change is in order.
Every woman has endured it. Seemingly minor acts, microaggressions, all building to create the greater culture of everyday abuse.
With the Weinstein Company filing for bankruptcy, I say it’s time for #MeToo to evolve and move to those who saw something and said nothing.
Presumably consensual fumblings in a public forum might seem banal. The celebrity, no matter his fame, was equipped with a power differential to leverage. Which he did. I complied, until I didn’t.
While the exposure of Barnaby’s affair was a positive, it reminded me of what most of us face regularly.
David Brooks’ New York Times piece that railed against abortion is crippled by one obvious fact. He doesn’t know what he’s talking about.
Last week, the Manchester Art Gallery took down a 19th-century image because it depicted nudity. The naked truth applying our rules to the past is censorship. Nothing more.
I, like many men, have felt unfairly targeted and thought #NotAllMen. However, now that I’ve learned the meaning behind the rhetoric, guys, we need to have a chat.
As domestic violence is a complex issue, the full discussion is often not heard. One local organisation is quietly helping the male victims of the national crisis, and I endeavoured to meet them.
Morgan Spurlock’s addressing his sexual allegations through a blog-post non-apology speaks everything about the issue at large. He, and everyone just like him, still don’t get it.
Late last year, Australia stepped towards equality with the marriage vote. However, in the new year, a gender is still woefully misrepresented.
The lesson that some have taken from “Cat person” is that it represents the sexual power that women exercise over men, unfortunately, the opposite is always true.
The #MeToo movement has given women a voice, revealing the prevalence of sexual harassment, assault, and predation in our society and exposing its scope, and I’m no different. But, what next?
The current rhetoric of long-buried sexual abuses toward women being outed is important, but our focus remains on the wrong party.
After a makeup company partnered with the Star Wars brand, there was resistance. Why? We’re just finally getting our unique shade of fandom. Embrace it.
Seeking or gifting a new watch this season? If it’s for a man wanting a simple design, I discovered you want to favour the selection of “women’s” watches instead.
While we may be focusing on the notable purveyors of it, the truth is that sexual harassment has long been the norm, and the acceptable amount should be none.
The hideous culture that women face is many things, but it should not minimise out own value. In fact, here’s four very good counterpoints you should not forget.
What does the next generation think of today’s issues? The Big Smoke’s Next Gen program publishes Australian students mentored by TBS writers. Today, Giselle Atlas (12) wants her female classmates to embrace science as their future careers.
