Changing Aspects: Reflections on the Geo-Political Dilemmas of a Feminist

Much has been written on the inequalities existing in feminist scholarship between Western Europe and their Central- and Eastern colleagues. Perhaps most obviously, this unequal relationship—this Western feminist hegemony—is reproduced by severe disproportionality in research funding. Another evident inequality is the dominance of the English language within academia, promulgated by both the most ‘prestigious’ journals and ‘major’ conferences in the field, all of which stipulate in their rules for engagement that English be used as ‘accepted practice’.


Re-BELLY-on Week

These are all the pictures I could get uploaded for the time being.

To explain:
Myself and other members of one of our feminist clubs on campus, FORGE (Fighting for Our Rights and Gender Equality), as well as cast members of our production of Eve Ensler's "The Vagina Monologues" decided to put together an art project in celebration of NEDA Week. We know that many women are plagued with body image issues as well as life-threatening eating disorders. In conjunction with NEDA Week, we launched the "Re-BELLY-on" project.
