I need feminism because “Who hired a stripper” shouldn’t be the first thing said to me when I walk into a welding job.

women in trades are treated like such fucking shit.

SOMEONE WHO INTENSELY WANTS TO BE ON FIRE. \*anti-patriarchy angry faces\*

Valerie Thomas: Why she kicks ass
She is a scientist and inventor, who invented the illusion transmitter for which she received a patent in 1980. (This is an invention that NASA continues to use to this day.)
She went to an all-girls school where she did not receive any training in the sciences. Implicit stereotypes contributed to this, as the girls school did not teach the students about math or science, so she had to educate herself about those subjects. She later attended Morgan State University, and was one of two women in majoring in physics.
She worked at NASA, first as a data analyst and then moving on to oversee the creation of the Landsat program, then as project manager for the Space Physics Analysis Network and was associate chief for NASA’s Space Science Data Operations Office. She also participated in projects related to Halley’s Comet, ozone research,  and the Voyager spacecraft. 
She retired in August 1995 as Space Science Data Operations Officer, serving as manager of the NASA Automated Systems Incident Response Capability and serving as chair of the SSDOO Education Committee.
She is currently an associate at the UMBC Center for Multicore Hybrid Productivity Research, and also serves as a mentor for youth through the Science Mathematics Aerospace Research and Technology and National Technical Association.

Two of our strongest female writers teamed up to reinvent weak men.
The 6 Male Characters Women Never Get to See in Movies

If you have spent time on the Internet, you’re probably tired of hearing how we need more Strong Female Characters. For some reason, people don’t seem to realize that sexism no longer exists today and both sexes are treated with complete equality, especially in the entertainment industry. If anything, men are the ones being discriminated against. … It’s time to stop this woman-centric hand-wringing on how to make female characters better and focus on helping the real victims of Hollywood sexism by asking: How can we make male characters worse?

you had me at “two naked lumberjacks in the foreground lovingly stroke each other’s beards and chest hair”

You know what? Take some free extra beefcake on top of that:


Oh my God the whining in the comments section.

The Kickstarter Needs You

Sorry to reblog from the source, but I thought the chain of comments was rather unnecessary. All that needs to be said is that this documentary examines gender inequality and how patriarchy contributes negatively to our society.

This is a feminist issue.

And anyone on Tumblr who’s too close-minded to recognize it as such due to a nonsensical blanketed hatred of men’s issues need to re-evaluate their motives.

THESE ARE REAL AND HORRIBLE MALE ISSUES CAUSED BY THE PATRIARCHY. IF YOURE FEMINIST, THESE SHOULD ANGER YOU. IF YOU’RE NOT, HERES ANOTHER REASON TO SUPPORT THE MOVEMENT. 

have I already reblogged this? don’t give a fuck.

On June 18, 1983 American physicist and astronaut Sally Ride became the very first American woman in space as a crew member on the space shuttle Challenger for NASA mission STS-7. The mission successfully deployed two communications satellites and conducted pharmaceutical experiments. Sally Ride was the first woman to use the robot arm in space and the first to use the arm to retrieve a satellite. This was (and still is) an awesome and inspirational milestone for girls and women alike.

In 1984 Sally Ride appeared on Sesame Street where she demonstrated the letter A, as in astronaut. In the second photo Sally is posing with Grundgetta, best friend and girlfriend of Oscar the Grouch.

This is a piece I did for the Native show at Emily Carr. 
The names written on my body are actual names for “sexy indian” costumes that can be bought online.This piece is a visual response to when Halloween comes around again, and people feel it right to dress up as my culture in horrible old stereotypes and pass it as honouring our culture. But it doesn’t. It only adds to more to poorly represented image of Native Americans, and objectifies Native women.
