The Journal of Feminist Scholarship

This is a new journal we wanted to be sure and share with you: The Journal of Feminist Scholarship.

The journal is a new, twice-yearly, peer-reviewed, open-access journal published online and aimed at promoting feminist scholarship across the disciplines, as well as expanding the reach and definitions of feminist research. The journal may be found at:

We believe it is time to explore the state of feminist scholarship at the turn of the new century, and we see the endeavor as part of a larger question of where feminism itself is heading. Publishing the journal online means that we are able to offer open access to its contents to feminist scholars anywhere in the world where there is an internet connection. it also has an immediacy that allows us to publish articles on topics that are in the here and now and to significantly shorten the time lage from submission to publication for our contributors.

Submission guidelines and contact information may be found at:

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month | The Chillicothe Gazette |

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month The Chillicothe Gazette "Child abuse is one of the greatest tragedies of our times. It doesn't have to be. We can prevent it by building communities that are committed to families and to the support and services they need to raise strong, healthy and successful children. That begins with awareness. Ross County agencies concerned with the prevention of child abuse in our community participate in a national tradition of observing April as Child Abuse Prevention Awareness Month."

Heartbeat...Tax Laws...Keep an eye on those Abortion Laws!

Ohio Heartbeat Bill
From The Columbus Examiner

Abortion Tax Issues?
From NPR

Abortion rights are in the news again...surprise, surprise. I think I'll let two of my bumper stickers speak for me this morning:

"How can you trust me with a child, if you can't trust me with a choice?"


"Men who change diapers change the world."

Let's keep our eyes, ears, and minds open!

Army of Princesses...

What can be more dangerous than that which arrives quietly and unannounced...that which works on one's subconscious...depositing its poisons deep within, the affects of which only rear their ugly heads years later in the form of eating disorders, mood disorders, lack of self-esteem and a general disposition of "non-enlightened" and most definitely just "not happy."

Well, here is one such source, I'd posture: The Princess Complex.

And a new book that explores it: "Cinderella Ate My Daughter" by Peggy Orenstein.

Saving Our Daughters From an Army of Princesses From NPR News

One good sign? I just reserved the copy from the library, and I'm #17 in line. Fantastic!

47 Years & Counting...

From NPR's "Fresh Air"

Another excellent interview by Terry Gross. This time she tackled a large range of topics and dabbled into the personal history of Evergreen State College in Washington's professor and author Stephanie Coontz.

Coontz's new book, A Strange Stirring: The Feminine Mystique and American Women at the Dawn of the 1960s, seems to be an excellent collection of interviews and reflections of the affects of Betty Friedan's now notorious description of the "problem without a name."

An interview well worth listening to!

Saturday, January 8, 2011; 3:12 PM

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- It has been nearly two years since Muzzammil Hassan directed police officers in this serene Buffalo suburb to the decapitated remains of his estranged wife inside the Muslim-oriented television station the couple ran.
With his second-degree murder trial set to start, the question for jurors may be less about whether Hassan killed Aasiya Zubair Hassan, 37, after she filed for divorce than about why..."
