Feminism – the struggle to liberate females from the patriarchal structures and norms of society is about female emancipation. If you ...

Dead Wild Roses: The DWR Radical Feminist Quote of the Day – On “Equality”

“much of the animosity towards radical feminism is explained by examining the fact that feminism is popularly misunderstood to simply be about “equal rights.” when radical feminists are accused of not including trans women in “our feminism,” the underlying implication is that we maliciously exclude them because we think they don’t deserve equal rights. however, ...

Dead Wild Roses: Excerpt – How feminists can challenge liberal bathroom politics – Robert Jensen

“Feminism recognizes that institutionalized male dominance is rooted in men’s control of women’s reproductive power (a source of other political struggles in Texas and beyond) and sexuality. In patriarchy, an enduring feature of the lives of girls and women is sexual violence — men’s unwanted intrusions into their lives. Women’s experiences vary, but none escapes ...

Dead Wild Roses: Pornography is Hate Speech Against Women

It’s almost like ‘free-speech’ has very different meanings for different classes of people… “Pornography is hate speech against women. If it was any other group that was made object to such depictions it would be rightly banned and decried.

Dead Wild Roses: The DWR Feminist Quote of the Day – Rachel Ivy – On Gender and Identity

Dead Wild Roses: The DWR Feminist Quote of the Day – Elizabeth Hungerford – On Neo Liberalism

Ms. Hungerford clearly has no time for all the silliness po-mo brings to the table. “Post-modern neoliberalism seeks to dismiss the experience of womanhood by claiming that anyone can choose to be a woman.
