I’ll be posting a longer commentary on a couple issues later this week but to tide you over here are some interesting links to news items and commentary of particular feminist interest.

  • From BitchMedia“The Gender Wars are over and We Won” – On Marcus Buckingham’s Huffington Post analysis of where women are today.
  • A neat video on how people with disabilities are sometimes treated like “un-people” via SexGenderBody.
  • We can’t forget that this week (November 15-20) is Transgender Awareness Week, ending with the Transgender Day of Remembrance on November 20th. You can find information on events in Vancouver here. Here’s a bit of what the day’s about:

We set aside November 20th to remember those have died due to anti-transgender hatred or prejudice. Although not every person represented during the Day of Remembrance self-identified as transgender — that is, as a transsexual, cross-dresser, or otherwise gender-variant — each was a victim of violence based on bias against transgender people. The Transgender Day of Remembrance raises public awareness of hate crimes against transgender people, and publicly mourns and honors the lives of our brothers and sisters who might otherwise be forgotten. Through this vigil, we express our love and respect for those who face indifference, hatred and violence, while trying to educate, inspire and organize our way to a better world.
