During the launch of the World Islamic Economic Forum, the mayor of London, Boris Johnson, spoke with Malaysian Prime Minister about the role of women in education. After the the PM  noted that 68 percent of college graduates in Malaysia are now women, Johnson just had to add that “they’ve got to find men to marry.” What Johnson therefore implied with his comment is that women aspire to nothing more than marriage, even with their degrees.

landen gambill

The University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill is currently facing three investigations by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights over the school’s handling of sexual assault reports.

The issues at UNC first became apparent when rape victim Landen Gambill (pictured here) was found in violation of the school’s honor code and faced the threat of expulsion. (Charges have since been dismissed.) After reporting UNC to the federal government for mishandling sexual assault cases, Gambill was accused of an honor court violation for exhibiting “disruptive or intimidating behavior” towards her alleged rapist, even though she never released his name. UNC eventually dropped the charges, but only after the case received national attention. The school is now under investigation for retaliating against a sexual assault whistleblower, underreporting sexual assault cases, and failing to adjudicate rape at the school.  Keep reading »

Naptime, feeding time … final exam? For Rebecca Mabrey, 25, of Jacksonville, Florida, that was how her and her 10-month-old baby’s afternoon was going to play out. But she was denied entrance to her final exam at Florida State College for bringing the kiddo along.

Mabrey argued that the exam fell right between her baby’s naptime and feeding time, so she felt that she had no choice but to bring her kid along to breastfeed. (Her husband was unable to watch the kid.) Florida State College did not agree: in an email, they told her children under 16 are not allowed on campus in order to maintain an environment that is conducive to learning. The school also added  they were not in violation of Florida’s maternal and infant health care law on breastfeeding because “this is not a prohibition of breastfeeding an infant.” In other words, Mabrey would be allowed to breastfeed her baby during the exam — if only kids were allowed.

The-I-Need-Feminism-Because...Campaign-Hits-Cambridge-University-062113

Recently, students at England’s Cambridge University took part in the “Who Needs Feminism” campaign, a public awareness campaign aimed at asking people why and how feminism is important to them. As a women’s studies major in the ’90s, I was continually frustrated by women in my classes who believed that feminism was no longer necessary, because women had achieved “equality” with men. So it’s cool to see in 20-frickin’-13 that feminism is still a vital topic on college campuses. The CUSU partnered with the ARU Feminist Society and asked more than 600 students why feminism is necessary to them. The results? Cambridge students are remarkably smart and savvy when it comes to understanding the intersections of feminism, racism, and classism. Take a second to look at some of the amazing responses from the Who Needs Feminism campaign after the jump and check out all 600 responses on the CUSU Women’s Campaign Facebook page. Keep reading »

Reaction to sexual harassment

College is a great place to explore new subject areas: Critical thinking, philosophy, dick sucking. What’s that? You college didn’t specialize in dick sucking? You must not have gone to Slippery Rock University, in Slippery Rock, Pennsylvania. Because a professor there, Robert Ammon Jr., seemingly offered that as an option to one of his students. The dick-sucking incident goes back to a 2010 trip  to Spain the sports management professor took with a bunch of students. Ammon was supposed to act as something of a chaperone to the 19 kids, but ended up drinking with them at a bar. First, he bragged that he’d had more than 100 partners. Then, when another student asked who his favorite student was, he pointed to one girl in the group and said that she’d be his favorite “if she sucked his dick.” Keep reading »
