Well look at that it’s TOPIC ANNOUNCEMENT time.
THIS WEEK: We’re reclaiming words for a variety of reasons. For example why feminism isn’t a dirty word and neither is vagina, and whether we can ever reclaim swear words and slurs like the ones in the picture above.
NEXT WEEK: We’ll be talking about Women in Sport, to coincide with the start of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.
THE WEEK AFTER: We’re possibly talking about Women in Comedy to coincide with the start of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, but that could change depending on you…
We’ve had quite a few topic suggestions in since our brush with TV stardom, so we thought we’d ask which topics you want us to cover next.
We’ve put up a Facebook question thingy where you can vote for your favourite topic or suggest new ones, but for those who don’t use Facebook feel free to answer in our ask box, or in reblogs etc.
And as ever if you want to do a guest video on any of these or any other topic then be sure to let us know! - Becca x
[First image shows two young white women holding a pair of protest signs in reference to the Michigan House of Representatives banning speakers who used the word “vagina” on the house floor. The first reads “I CUNT believe she said VAGINA!!” and the second reads “TWAT was she thinking?!”. If anyone can give me the original source I’d appreciate it, I found it here on Feministing.
Second image shows a black and white line up of six women of different shapes, sizes and weights wearing swimwear. Underneath each woman is their name, their Olympic sport, their height and their weight. Image originally from Sports Illustrated for Women, taken here from sumptuous.com - why don’t you look like a fitness model?
