Things we liked, or didn’t like, from around the internet this week.
Actually, the Lady Gardeners are all exceedingly busy, and we haven’t found much around the internet this week. So instead of a round-up, we think you should all listen to Friend of the Lady Garden Megan Whelan’s documentary about women in the Pacific.
Megan Whelan considers the appalling violence and health statistics for many Pacific women and asks if more female MPs help?
You can find it on this page at Radio New Zealand. Either download the MP3 or Ogg Vorbis (whatever that is), or play the documentary from the page.
In other news this week, there is a thread of doom at Feministe on a professor teaching a class in feminist anthropology who took her baby to class because the baby had a cold and couldn’t go to daycare, and part way through the class breastfed her baby. See all 649 (and counting) comments here: Breastfeeding sick babies in class. Blue Milk has some links to a rather more nuanced analysis of what happened: A couple of great responses to the Professor who breastfed in class controversy.
Across the Tasman, Catherine Deveney oh no shock horror rudely interrupted the bishop and dominated a conversation. Except she didn’t. Glady the Cross-Eyed Bear has the stats. Also, “Gladly the cross-eyed bear”…. say it out loud.
And a nuanced discussion of some aspects of sex work on …. wait for it… Stuff! High flyers who turn to escorting.
For some more great reading, check out BlueBec’s Spring linkspam.
That’s it then. See you next week.
