Health, education fears for Vanuatu's child cyclone survivors
Yahoo News - almost 2 years
Josianna Napuat barely flinched when registered nurse Elizabeth William injected her with a measles vaccine outside her home in Vanuatu's capital Port Vila. "I think it's important," said Josianna's mother Mollie, 35, of the visit by the United Nation children's agency UNICEF a week after a cyclone blasted through her neighbourhood and tore off part of the roof of her home. Since then, teams have been working to vaccinate hundreds of children aged between six months and five years in the capital, where thousands lost everything in the storm. "In almost all post-disaster situations, there will be a move to quickly vaccinate against measles," Colin Macleod, an infectious disease specialist from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, told AFP in Port Vila.

Take a look at Lena Dunham’s book cover
Salon.com - about 3 years
Lena Dunham on Monday shared a snap of the book jacket for her forthcoming collection of essays, "Not That Kind of Girl." It reminds me of this really lovely edition of Joan Didion's "The White Album" and, as my colleagues Mary Elizabeth Williams and Laura Miller pointed out, also takes a little something from Helen Gurley Brown's "Sex and the Single Girl" and Jacqueline Susann's "Valley of the Dolls." It's a fine-looking book jacket, and clearly a nod to other influential women writers. Well played, people who designed Dunham's book jacket! Continue Reading...

7 Things More Offensive Than Public Breastfeeding
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Missouri mother Laura Trickle was simply trying to do several duties that day: her civic role as a potential juror and her biological role as a single mother nursing her 7-month-old son. Without any childcare coverage and at the mercy of the nutritional whims of her baby, Trickle brought her son to jury duty. The result? She now faces charges of contempt of court, a $500 fine and potential jail time. Talk about the price of milk going through the roof. In an article for Salon.com, Mary Elizabeth Williams reported on this case and the nuances behind the Missouri laws that allow pregnant women to defer their service. In the case of post-partum moms, the law states: "breastfeeding mothers can pump or nurse on breaks or bring someone to care for their children when serving as jurors." There must be a big market in Missouri for stunt nipples. Leaving aside for the moment the ribald inanity of this particular situation and the law's insensitivity toward mothers that borders on embarrassing ...

The New York Times (quietly) drops the F-bomb
Salon.com - over 3 years
At a time when a (satirical) kids' book can be titled "Go the Fuck to Sleep," the New York Times has always held the line against profanity, sometimes to the point of absurdity. A year ago, Mary Elizabeth Williams wrote for Salon about the exaggerated contortions editors have gone through to avoid the F-bomb alone, an especially tricky maneuver when the word appears in the title of a blog a journalist needs to refer to or a play or band being reviewed. The Times’ senior standards editor, Greg Brock, told the pseudonymous B, creator of a blog called STFU, Parents, that it would not include the name of her blog in a story, even when quoting it, for the sake of "younger readers — or for any readers who might be offended. ... we feel some obligation to try to maintain the Times as a respectable publication and respect all of our readers." That's why any reference to the word "fuck" has been avoided or obscured by asterisks. Continue Reading...

What’s in a name? Chelsea Manning and Muhammad Ali
Salon.com - over 3 years
Consider a polarizing political and cultural figure who is seen by many people as a hero and by others as a traitor – and who has a powerful symbolic importance to members of a persecuted minority. This person adopts a new name and a new identity, which transforms his or her relationship to mainstream culture and confuses both the media and many members of the public. Many people refuse to accept the new name and identity, or treat it as a nickname or a passing fad. At age 25, this person is prosecuted for an act of conscience-driven defiance against America’s war machine, one that arguably serves as a political turning point but also strikes many people as an unpatriotic or treasonous betrayal. Obviously I’m talking about Chelsea Manning, at least in part. The Army leaker and whistle-blower, who was recently convicted on 17 charges of espionage and theft, declared this week that she identifies as female and no longer wants to be known as Bradley. It’s an event that feels, at this ear ...

Lynn Parramore: 5 Things Women Should Know About Eliot Spitzer
The Huffington Post - over 3 years
As a life-long feminist, I’ve often been struck by the lack of insight in the political realm into a simple fact: So-called “women’s issues” are everyone’s issues. When women have access to reproductive healthcare, when they are supported in the workplace, when they can enjoy a dignified retirement, when they are protected from Wall Street predators, when they are economically secure, everyone wins. Enter a candidate for New York City Comptroller who has an outstanding record on all of these issues. One who has shown an unmatched enthusiasm for challenging Wall Street abuses that disproportionately impact women, one who has championed women’s workplace rights and access to healthcare — and one who even publicly calls himself a feminist. Incredibly, some women, like NOW New York president Sonia Ossorio, have chosen to actually team up with business leaders to spend $1.5 million to skew the election and defeat Eliot Spitzer in his bid for office. Is Ossorio representing the N ...
