Abortion Bill in Tennessee

Posted by Jack Stephens on April 3, 2007

In the blog Tennessee Guerilla Women egalia writes:

Tennessee’s women-hating lawmakers are at it again. Trying to put an anti-choice amendment into the state constitution…

The rightwing effort to control women reads, “Nothing in this Constitution secures or protects a right to abortion or requires the funding of an abortion.” (pdf]

There are no provisions for women who are raped, women who are victims of incest, or for women whose life is threatened by carrying a child to term.

If that’s not the definition of misogyny, I don’t know what is.

Zimbabwe and Unions

Posted by Jack Stephens on April 3, 2007

charliethechulo writes in the blog Shiraz Socialist:

As the Zimbabwe Conress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) continues its two-day “stay away”, demanding a minimum wage and other basic workers’ rights, Mugabe and his Zanu PF thugs have resorted to their usual tactics in an attempt to intimidate the unions and break the strike.

BJP “Feminists”

Posted by Jack Stephens on April 3, 2007

Krish blogs about the hypocrisy of calling oneself a feminist and being a member of the ultra-nationalistic BJP party in India in his blog Krishworld Politics:

I have come across many Indian women who claim that they are out there in the world to eradicate male chauvinism. The same women (who are from the privileged castes of the society) support BJP unabashedly. I find this highly hypocritical. I have high regard for real feminists. But I consider these pseudo-feminists as the cheapest group of people. BJP is a party which considers Rama to be the gold standard. Rama, the last time I heard about him, made his wife walk through fire to prove her “purity”. It seems he did that to shut the mouths of people who, in their own male chauvinistic way, questioned the “purity” of Sita.
