'Bitch' and 'Chicks Rock' P.S.A.

Two Public Service Announcements from Fourth Wave:

1. Help Save BITCH Magazine. If you can donate, please do. If you can't donate, spread the word. BITCH is a non-profit, feminist magazine, and this may be their last issue:

2. The Women's Mosaic has started a new blog, Chicks Rock, which is dedicated to providing a space "for women to share their experiences related to diversity and personal growth." Check it out, comment and maybe even consider becoming a guest blogger.

Plus, a couple bonus links:

* A great article pondering why there aren't more superheroine movies ("And why not start with the superwoman who was sent here to bring a feminine--and feminist--perspective to the fight against evil? It might take Wonder Woman's Lasso of Truth to make studio executives own up to the fact that 41 years after she first made it on the screen, they're still afraid of Diana Prince.")
H/T don't ya wish your girlfriend was smart like me?

* Stephen Colbert on the McCain campaign's tactics of silence, diversion and hypocrisy

H/T Appetite for Equal Rights

Bitch is in trouble? Goodness, I wish I had more spare cash.

Chicks Rock looks pretty cool.

Regarding female superheros - I think that the target audience for superhero movies is assumed to be male, more so than any other genre. I imagine superhero movies will be the last to achieve equality.

A friend of mine forwarded this to me. It's an interesting perspective, but the author sounds a little resentful/hostile...

The Struggles of Bitch Magazine are Neither Surprising Nor New
