It doesn’t help that we live in a society that sees a man who changes a nappy as a saint, a boyfriend who occasionally makes brunch as a diamond in the rough, an emotionally supportive man as a rare treasure, yet expects all these things from female partners as a matter of course. Too often, decisions about whether or not to proceed to trial for rape rely on whether the woman fits the societal profile of the “perfect victim”: ie, those who are “sweet and pretty and innocent and careful and didn’t stray off the path or talk to the wolf”. Saber dónde estoy parada, no precisamente hablando de la situación de UK, porque hacía ahí me dirigía/estaba cuando lo leí, sino en general: qué me tocó vivir. I was haunted by the story of a woman attacked by her ex-husband, who smashed her head so hard against a BMW that it dented the bodywork and left her needing hospital treatment. The examples cited of misogynistic abuse suffered by women are extensive and of course throughly awful as well as unsurprising, but I felt it was sensitively handled and offered many solutions of how to change the system rather that just describing them in graphic detail and moving on.

It’s a powerful opener that sticks with you throughout; I will be making my own list and expect to lighten the weight of it with a glass of wine in the company of my incredible female friends. In November 2017 the people of Zimbabwe took to the streets in an unprecedented alliance with the military. Despite the increased prominence of feminist campaigns, charges in rape cases are now exactly half what they were in 2015–16.It was brutally honest, not to mention sickening to read, but I was so glad I pushed through, because I felt like I needed to, and I feel that this book is equally important to men and women alike.

Namanya sudah cukup sering aku dengar sbg aktivis kesetaraan gender yg juga rajin menulis esai dan buku. Real change needs to happen, and it’s not our fault as women if this does not happen fast, it’s the system and the hierarchy of this that need to take note and make action. She has written for the Guardian, the Independent, the New Statesman, Red Magazine and Grazia among others. When people suggest measures that constrain all women’s lives, these are hailed as ‘just common sense’. Maybe the lady is from a different generation and those who she collected data from (experiences) but a lot of the things didn't seem to be common in my generation, maybe they were flattened.She is the recipient of two honorary degrees and was awarded the Internet and Society Award by the Oxford Internet Institute alongside Sir Tim Berners Lee. Ik heb een lijstje gemaakt en ook al zal deze niet zo lang zijn als die van anderen, hij is te lang. Though perhaps not as hard-hitting as 'Men Who Hate Women' Bates' new book is further proof of the prevailing misogyny of Western society. Kali ini pilihanku jatuh kepada buku barunya Laura Bates yang berjudul Fix the System, Not the Women. Big Caesars and Little Caesars : How They Rise and How They Fall - From Julius Caesar to Boris Johnson.

And judges ruling not guilty because the 13 year old “looked old for their age” and “looks sexually aggressive”. Ferdinand Mount opens up a fascinating exploration of how and why Caesars seize power and why they fall. For Laura Bates, it began with a heavy piece of gold jewellery that her mother found on the passenger seat of the family car.Ik kan dit boek aanraden voor allen die het grotere plaatje willen inzien, het systeem in plaats van enkel het individu. I think what I do find difficult to comprehend, is the fairly recent overturning of Roe v Wade in the United States. There are Big Caesars who set out to achieve total social control and Little Caesars who merely want to run an agreeable kleptocracy without opposition: from Julius Caesar and Oliver Cromwell through Napoleon and Bolivar, to Mussolini, Salazar, De Gaulle and Trump.
