The FEMISPHERE: A Link Roundup!

A weekly news round up on the state of Body Politics & Body Justice

 

  • Feministing reminds us that “Sexual Harassment is Bipartisan,” as it discusses the allegations of harassment that seems to have closed the doors of Washington PR firm FitzGibbon Media. FitzGibbon represented groups like the AFL-CIO, NARAL, Amnesty International and American Civil Liberites Union.
  • Is it just me, or is every pop culture moment all year been leading up to an intersectional feminist Star Wars sequel? Although diversity sells,  Hollywood has not reflected much progress on diversifying roles in 2015 on the big screen. Star Wars The Force Awakens is one of the few that passes the Bechdel Test, even if it has its flaws. It’s exciting to see some mindful updates in an old franchise gives us a new hope for diversity in Hollywood film for 2016.

As we close the year we thought we would share some notable year end lists and observations from feminist publications around the web.
