In which John Green teaches you about American women in the Progressive Era and, well, the progress they made. So the big deal is, of course, the right to vote women gained when the 19th amendment was passed and ratified. But women made a lot of other gains in the 30 years between 1890 and 1920. More women joined the workforce, they acquired lots of other legal rights related to property, and they also became key consumers in the industrial economy. Women also continued to play a vital role in reform movements. Sadly, they got Prohibition enacted in the US, but they did a lot of good stuff, too. The field of social work emerged as women like Jane Addams created settlement houses to assist immigrants in their integration into the United States. Women also began to work to make birth control widely available. You'll learn about famous reformers and activists like Alice Paul, Margaret Sanger, and Emma Goldman, among others.

Dora Levačić: Feminism between paid and unpaid labour: political implications ||| 18th November 2013
Organizacija: Centar za radničke studije (CRS) / Organized by: Centre for labour studies (radnickistudiji.org) Friday, October 18th 2013, Goethe-Institut, Zagreb 16.30-18.00 Conference_Predicaments of the Left: Conjunctures, Strategies, Perspectives / Konferencija_Dileme ljevice: poteškoće, strategije, perspektive 3rd panel: Dora Levačić, Feminism between paid and unpaid labour: political implications Iva Marčetić, First we take the house Moderator: Marko Kostanić Dora Levačić, Feminism between paid and unpaid labour: political implications Women's entrance into the labour market has not brought any substantial change regarding the fundamental issues of sexual division of labour and women's economic subordination. Women are mostly present in less paid sectors of the economy and at lower positions within their hierarchical structure. Depending on the geopolitical context, women are also overrepresented in part-time jobs and fixed-time contracts. Mainstream feminism has not offered a comprehensive analysis of women's economic position, but has placed focus on phenomena such as "the glass ceiling" or the gender wage gap, treating them as results of men's discrimination of women. Consequently, the issue of gender inequality has been separated from the analysis of capitalism and has opened itself towards the influence of neoclassical economics and its legitimisation of gender inequality by considering it as an outcome of individual free choice. Treating "work-life balance" as an exclusively women's issue creates economic policies which continue the sexual division of labour in households as well as in the labour market. This talk will try to explain the causes of the absence of a systemic feminist analysis of these issues and will provide a critique of the exclusive focus placed on (paid) work as a way towards women's emancipation. By pointing out the inability of connecting unpaid and paid work as the key deficiency of studying gender inequality, the talk will give an overview of theoretical practices which can be helpful in its understanding. Also, in terms of much needed social mediation and political articulation of these theoretical practices the problem of feminism often being neglected by leftist political agendas will be addressed. Dora Levačić (1989) is a student of sociology at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences in Zagreb. She is a member of the editorial board of the magazine Diskrepancija and is a member of Organisation for Workers' Initiative and Democratisation. She has published articles on feminism, unpaid household labour and the gender wage gap. http://radnickistudiji.org/?p=207%2F

Women in the 19th Century: Crash Course US History #16
In which John Green finally gets around to talking about some women's history. In the 19th Century, the United States was changing rapidly, as we noted in the recent Market Revolution and Reform Movements episodes. Things were also in a state of flux for women. The reform movements, which were in large part driven by women, gave these self-same women the idea that they could work on their own behalf, and radically improve the state of their own lives. So, while these women were working on prison reform, education reform, and abolition, they also started talking about equal rights, universal suffrage, temperance, and fair pay. Women like Susan B. Anthony, Carry Nation, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, the Grimkés, and Lucretia Mott strove tirelessly to improve the lot of American women, and it worked, eventually. John will teach you about the Christian Temperance Union, the Seneca Falls Convention, the Declaration of Sentiments, and a whole bunch of other stuff that made life better for women. Hey teachers and students - Check out CommonLit's free collection of reading passages and curriculum resources to learn more about the events of this episode. Few women were as vocal for women's rights during the 19th century than Susan B. Anthony: https://www.commonlit.org/texts/the-life-s-work-of-susan-b-anthony Anthony worked for women's right to vote alongside great women like Sojourner Truth, who stressed the importance of intersectional feminism in her influential “Ain't I a Woman?” Speech: https://www.commonlit.org/texts/ain-t-i-a-woman Follow us! @thecrashcourse @realjohngreen @crashcoursestan @raoulmeyer @saysdanica Support CrashCourse on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/crashcourse

Iran's women discriminated against by law
Under Iranian law, a woman is considered the half of a man. Women are not equal to men. They are fighting for equality. Euronews, the most watched news channel in Europe Subscribe for your daily dose of international news, curated and explained:http://eurone.ws/10ZCK4a Euronews is available in 13 other languages: http://eurone.ws/17moBCU They have been organising for years to secure civic rights, such as for divorce, in the workplace, custody of their children and the right to travel. As it is today, they can benefit from these rights only under the authority of a man in their family, such as their father or husband. The government system in Iran does not recognise any movement in which women are in the forefront. The fight for rights has come at a high cost. For example, Narges Mohamadi lost her health in prison; Nasrin Sotoudeh is serving an eleven-year sentence, and has been banned from practising law for 20 years; Shiva Nazarahari, Jila Baniyaghoub and Bahareh Hedayat have also been given long sentences. In spite of all the pressures, women are visible in Iranian society. They are present at universities, in demonstrations, in the labour market and even as politicians in the national assembly. They launch campaigns, such as the 'million-signature' petition asking for changes to the law. As their activities develop, the regime has moved to restrict their rights. For example, a law proposed by the government of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad doesn't let unmarried women under the age of 40 leave the country without the permission of their fathers or brothers. Strangely, women MPs supported this law. Paradoxically, the government lowered the voting age for women to 16 -- the same as for men. Once polls are over, however, even a candidate who proposed programmes in women's favour forgot commitments made towards 49 percent of the population of 77 million people. Another election is under way. A considerable number of the votes are women's. In order to look at how women in Iran are striving for rights, and to consider the obstacles in their way, we interviewed activist Mansoureh Shojaee, a member of the Pen society in London, one of the world's oldest human rights and literary organisations. Vida Samei, euronews: "With new elections in Iran, women are not eligible to register as presidential candidates. As voters, can they expect to see their demands realized?" Mansoureh Shojaee: "Well, first of all, many thanks for your attention to matters that are important to women in these elections. Now, this business that women cannot be presidential candidates is written in Article 115 of the Constitution. Women's movements have objected to this problem since 2005. They have also steadfastly tried to vote in the polls because they consider the ballot box as a means for citizens to get their rights. Women have not ignored elections, therefore. Instead, they have participated, while at the same time criticising, objecting and demanding their rights. We should wait and see to what extent the ballot box this time around is representative of these demands. Women's participation in the future will depend on how much of what they are asking for is realised through their voting." euronews: "What are the obstacles in Iran to women achieving their rights?" Shojaee: "Legal discrimination stands in women's way. To prevent these legal obstacles, rights activists have always tried to show their objection to the relevant laws in a peaceful way. They have achieved some things. There have been always challenges between the activists and legislators and the executive." euronews: "What means do Iranian women have to achieve their rights?" Shojaee: "The only way the women's movement, as a new social movement in Iran, can move their rights forward is through a change in the laws. Through their activities, the coalitions they have formed and through their campaigns, women have conveyed their demand to the officials. Society is aware of this. It should be possible to feel free; they should be able to hold seminars comfortably, to write articles and to contact officials -- continuously communicate with the members of parliament. It should be made possible for women to communicate with the legislators in parliament and with the government about their demands. This is how we hope the existing laws can be changed. Otherwise, women will always be challenged. This demand should be pushed forward and it should be dealt with peacefully and wisely. Women citizens have the right to object to discriminatory legislation. Officials should be responsive and listen to these demands, so that this deadlock is resolved and can help provide a peaceful, civilised life for all citizens, particularly for women."

'Feminist logic' Stay Safe = YOU DESERVE RAPE!
I recently put up a video which suggested that rape, as with any other risk in life, can be modulated in part by the potential victim. To many this would be a bit of a no-brainer, in that who could possible say 'taking self defense classes has no effect whatsoever on your chances of being raped.' I had figured this would be an uncontroversial and sensible appraisal of the situations. However I reckoned without 'feminist' reasoning. Here, merely suggesting that women can through their choices, modulate their chances of being raped, means that I am a 'rape apologist'! Here is PZ blog on the subject. http://freethoughtblogs.com/pharyngula/2013/10/02/bringing-back-bad-memories/ and Taslima http://freethoughtblogs.com/taslima/2013/10/03/video-and-tweets-of-a-rapeapologist-misogynist-atheist/ Yup these articles are pretty much what I remember from 'freethoughtblogs' in that they just drip with pointlessly vitriolic invective. PZ Myers deliberately instructs people not to watch the actual video, (the exact quote is "Typical blunderthud, then. So don't watch it.") while simultaneously telling his readers what to thing "It's horrifyingly ignorant, condescending, and oblivious to his own arrogant attitude." -Like I say its amazingly pointlessly hostile invective. Personally Im stunned anyone turns up to watch him spit poison at people he doesnt like. Do they really think this OTT name calling is a 'game winner'? Taslima apparently can't tell the difference between me and a muslim extremist "I felt I was listening to a Muslim fanatic, not an atheist or a humanist. " The sad thing, is do they really think they are going to change minds by just spitting poison at people? They apparently ranted over 'some grey bloke' who wrote some blog which started out with "Yes, I'm biased. There are not harsh enough words in the English language to sum up what I think of Phil Mason." Hmmm, saying within the first 2 paragraphs that you 'hate someone'. Hardly the place to go for a fair and objective appraisal. The bizarre thing is these folks dont seem to have realized that if you have a 'winning argument', you dont need to say how biased, or how much you hate things, the arguments alone will stand on their merits.

She was a founder of the Iranian National Union of Women and member of its first executive and editorial boards, before leaving Iran in 1984.

Seth MacFarlane Accused of Sexism at Oscars
"No sooner did a pre-recorded Seth McFarlane, in his opening act at the 2013 Academy Awards, begin to enumerate all the actresses who'd shown their boobs onscreen than the sexism murmur started. It swelled later, as the host joked about George Clooney dating Quvenzhané Wallis, Jennifer Aniston's imagined past as an exotic dancer, Chris Brown's abusive relationship with Rihanna, and Zero Dark Thirty as evidence that women "never let anything go." McFarlane also told the women present that their self-induced pre-Oscar "stomach flus" had "paid off" (they looked fabulous), took a swipe at the Kardashian sisters' alleged facial hair, and maintained that no one cared what Salma Hayek said, so long as she had her ravishing looks."* People were incensed by Seth MacFarlane's hosting job at the Academy Awards, saying he was sexist on several occasions. Or was he just making light of things, as a comedian? Ana Kasparian and John Iadarola break down the list of sexist allegations. *Read more from Slate: http://www.slate.com/blogs/browbeat/2013/02/25/seth_macfarlane_sexist_no_jokes_depend_on_context_and_he_was_funny.html Support The Young Turks by Subscribing http://www.youtube.com/user/theyoungturks Like Us on Facebook: Follow Us on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/theyoungturks Buy TYT Merch: http://theyoungturks.spreadshirt.com/

"One of the hard-fought ideals of feminism is that women can be the equals of men in any field. And so, as an unapologetic feminist, allow me to take my hat off this week to both Daily Mail columnist Liz Jones and superstar Rihanna, for proving that ladies can really hold their own in the realm of sexist trolling."* Liz Jones is a writer and a bit of a troll. She recently wrote a piece that at least implied that Rihanna causes rape. Rihanna responded with a direct insult to Jones' appearance. Who's more wrong? Or is this a case that proves women are equal to some men...in misogyny? Ana Kasparian and John Iadarola discuss.

BBC 'Men are raised to hate women'
The BBC recently carried a story about how women are particularly harassed online. This was mostly justified by an interview with a woman who stated that 'men are trained to hate women'. This is just off the wall batshit crazy. You simply cannot sustain such an opinion and still be on planet Earth, and this was the jumping off point for the rest of the story which was about how some guy has written a 'blockbot' to systematically flag peoples twitter accounts. The story contradicts itself on several important facts. Firstly Paul Mason (the reporter here) states he has never been seriously griefed when talking to a troll, even though only 40 seconds earlier in the story he states that he has many abusers on his twitter feed. Not the best evidence for this being a problem specific to women. Secondly he chooses Rebecca Watson (of Skepchick) as his example of women being harassed online. Rebecca Watson, just so we are clear is one of the biggest professional victims around. Indeed if you look at her list of whats shes actually done, making a fuss about being politely asked out for coffee dominates her list of achievements. so here is one of the BBC articles impartially titled 'Is there a tech solution for hatred of women?' http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-23510635

19th Century Reforms: Crash Course US History #15
In which John Green teaches you about various reform movements in the 19th century United States. From Utopian societies to the Second Great Awakening to the Abolition movement, American society was undergoing great changes in the first half of the 19th century. Attempts at idealized societies popped up (and universally failed) at Utopia, OH, New Harmony, IN, Modern Times, NY, and many other places around the country. These utopians had a problem with mainstream society, and their answer was to withdraw into their own little worlds. Others didn't like the society they saw, and decided to try to change it. Relatively new protestant denominations like the Methodists and Baptists reached out to "the unchurched" during the Second Great Awakening, and membership in evangelical sects of Christianity rose quickly. At the same time, Abolitionist societies were trying to free the slaves. Americans of the 19th century had looked at the world they were living in, and decided to change it.

Mary Anne Case, "Feminist Fundamentalism"
At a time when so many different religious fundamentalisms are coming to the fore and demanding legal recognition, this talk will seek to vindicate feminist fundamentalism, defined as an uncompromising commitment to the equality of the sexes as intense and at least as worthy of respect as, for example, a religiously or culturally based commitment to female subordination or fixed sex roles. Both individuals and nation states can have feminist fundamentalist commitments, as the talk will illustrate. Mary Anne Case is Arnold I. Shure Professor of Law at the University of Chicago Law School. This talk was recorded April 9, 2008 as part of the Chicago's Best Ideas lecture series.

Did I "Blame the Victim?"
A clarification on rape, alcohol, clothing, etc... Anita Tanner's "Counting The Cost" http://www.dialoguejournal.com/wp-content/uploads/sbi/articles/Dialogue_V24N03_119.pdf My written account (from the '90s) of the straw that broke the camel's back (regarding my membership in the Mormon Church). I tendered my resignation letter very shortly after the incident described in the link below... http://mrdeity.com/breakingpoint.html http://mrdeity.com/donate.html Transcript: Hey everyone! I want to take a few minutes to clarify some of the comments and impressions I made regarding "Slandergate" which appeared in the begging segment of Mr. Deity and the Hat. First, the bit about the wine and my refusing a refill had to do with one thing and one thing only. As evidence of the supposed "M.O." of the accused, PZ quoted a woman who tells the following story... The accused "was the guest of honor at an atheist event I attended in Fall 2006... I got my book signed, then at the post-speech party, [the accused] chatted with me at great length while refilling my wine glass repeatedly. I lost count of how many drinks I had. He was flirting with me and I am non-confrontational and unwilling to be rude, so I just laughed it off. He made sure my wine glass stayed full. And that's the entirety of my story." My bit with the wine and refusing the refill was in response to that paragraph in PZ's post only. Please note that alcohol is not mentioned with regard to the original allegation. Only that the accuser was coerced into a position where she could not consent — which, honest to deity, I'm still not sure I understand what that means. But the confusion regarding this point has lead to people thinking that I'm "blaming the victim" — as though drunken rape is in some way the woman's fault. That was never the intent of that bit. So... just to be clear, let me say this unequivocally: A woman who is raped is never ever, never, never, ever, ever never to blame for being raped. I don't care if she's dressed in a burqa, a bikini, provocatively, or has not an ounce of clothing on her. I don't care if she has taken drugs, is drunk out of her mind, or is, in any other way, either self- or otherwise incapacitated. Rape is rape, and a woman is NEVER to blame. Only a few people know this, but the absolute final straw that caused me to leave the Mormon Church had to do with the idea that a woman could be complicit in the case of rape, and that a woman (or even a girl) could "loose her virtue" even if it was taken from by force — against her will. I went to war over this idea after reading a piece by Anita Tanner called "Counting The Cost." I'll post a link to that essay in the description below. Long story short, I stood alone in a room full of Mormon men who got a earful of my contempt and disgust for their agreement with the truly outrageous comments of the various Mormon leaders outlined in that essay -- an essay I hope you'll read. It was the last time I ever set foot in a Mormon Church as a Mormon. I'll post my written description of that event in the comments. Finally, for those of you who think I am merely a rape/sexual assualt apologist, or that I'm simply prone to disbelieving a women's report of rape and/or sexual assault, I invite you to look at what I wrote in the comments section of Ashley Paramore's YouTube video regarding her report of sexual assault at TAM in 2012. (Squeak) Please note that my comments came long before this current incident and show that when such a report is clear, detailed, and put forth directly, I will not only believe that report, but defend it with my very last breath — or keystroke, as may be the case. So, I hope that clarifies things a bit. If you still hate me, I understand — I don't expect more from you than I get from my father. For everyone else, I'll see you soon. Thanks.

What's More Sexist- Seth MacFarlane or Fashion Headlines?
Seth MacFarlane took a lot of heat for his Oscars hosting job, with specific criticism that he was sexist on different occasions, particularly in the "We Saw Your Boobs" song. Ben Mankiewicz (Host, Turner Classic Movies) brings up another point: the things we see everyday on celebrity/fashion sites are pointlessly cruel to women. Are the articles that headline the Huffington Post and its entertainment section worse to women than Seth Macfarlane, and should they be suspect to the same kind of criticism? Ana Kasparian and Nikki DeLoach (Actress, MTV's Awkward) join the discussion.

Why We Need Campus Men's Centres: Dr. Miles Groth at the University of Toronto
DESCRIPTION: Support the Campaign to Establish the Canadian Centre for Men and Families. Visit http://igg.me/at/CanadianCMF Read about the high police fee the University of Toronto Men's Issues Awarenss Society was mandated to pay to allow their event to proceed http://equalitycanada.com/2013/09/20/supportgrothevent/ About the Event: Caring About University Men: Why We Need Campus Men's Centres in a Time of Crisis Friday, September 27, 2013, 7:00PM Located at the University of Toronto This year about 35% of university students in developed countries will be male. If the statistically projected steep rate of decline continues, the last bachelor's degree earned by a male will be awarded around 2025. Although that is not likely to happen, the situation for males on campuses everywhere is precarious, yet only a few faculty and administrators are responding to the reality. What is that reality? What is it like to be a young man 18-21 living and studying at university? How did matters come to be as they are? What is being done to care for young men in the current situation? Dr. Miles Groth, editor of New Male Studies: An International Journal and founder of College and University Centers for Men will discuss why attention is being turned to young men at university and why they need our concern and care. Dr. Groth, an adviser for CAFE, is the author of Engaging College Men: Discovering What Works and numerous articles on the well-being of boys and men. He has addressed this topic in Australia, Canada and the States. ****************************************************************** A public event of the Canadian Association for Equality (CAFE). The Canadian Association for Equality (CAFE) is a registered national educational charity that supports all efforts toward achieving gender equality. Our approach must be inclusive, diverse, affirming and evidence-based. This leads us to a current focus on building awareness, resources and support for the status, health and well-being of boys, men and fathers. #LetsTalkMen ****************************************************************** DONATE NOW: http://equalitycanada.com/support-us/ ******************************************************************
Talk to Al Jazeera - Binyavanga Wainaina: Rewriting Africa
Subscribe to our channel http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe Subscribe to our channel http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe It is time to change our image of Africa. Critics say that for too long now, aid organisations, foreign diplomats, politicians and journalists have been stuck looking at this vast continent as a convenient photo-opportunity to illustrate victimhood and desperation. And few men are more forceful in advocating a change in how we perceive Africa than Kenyan author Binyavanga Wainaina. Talk to Al Jazeera sat down with one of the continent's most influential young authors to explore why the world is still not understanding Africa, and how to break the lens of media distortion. At Al Jazeera English, we focus on people and events that affect people's lives. We bring topics to light that often go under-reported, listening to all sides of the story and giving a 'voice to the voiceless.' Reaching more than 270 million households in over 140 countries across the globe, our viewers trust Al Jazeera English to keep them informed, inspired, and entertained. Our impartial, fact-based reporting wins worldwide praise and respect. It is our unique brand of journalism that the world has come to rely on. We are reshaping global media and constantly working to strengthen our reputation as one of the world's most respected news and current affairs channels.

Letters to an Asexual #14 ("You'll get over it when you mature!")
This is #14 of a series in which I read correspondence between me and people who have questions, comments, or--more often--misconceptions about asexuality. This loser kept telling me asexuality is something people "get over" (because her therapist said so and she personally did not want to have sex for a whole three years of her life when she was a teenager). She followed me to multiple places on the Internet to repeatedly tell me this, resorting to private messages and Twitter harassment to keep telling me I need to accept that I am probably gay and WILL get over asexuality because it's an impossible orientation. In the video I mention quite a few asexuality-related studies that have been done by people who study sexuality and do not think it's impossible whatsoever. Here are the titles and authors of the studies. "Asexuality as a Spectrum: A National Probability Sample Comparison to the Sexual Community in the UK." Caroline H.

Brenda's Message to Big Red.
Here is her deceased husbands story: http://www.barbarakay.ca/articles/view/485 Feel free to mirror My AVFM article. http://www.avoiceformen.com/feminism/a-widows-message-to-big-red/ Brenda is a close friend of mine. We talk often. If "Big Red" had some decency she might have learned something. But no worries feminists like "Big Red" have men and boys issues 'covered.'

010 Feminists protest MRA conference
CAFE and members of avoiceformen attempt to hold a conference about men's issues when they are interrupted by feminist protesters accusing them of being hate group and the like. They make noise, pull fire alarms and every other dirty tactic to try to shut down free speech. In this video we will be looking only at the footage of the woman who appears to be the ring leader for this particular feminist protest.

Rush Limbaugh Fails Basic Math
On his radio program, Rush Limbaugh asked listeners to imagine if the Senate consisted of 45 Ted Cruz's. After nearly choking on my breakfast upon hearing this, I attempted to consider what the Senate would look if there were 44 more filibustering Lone Star State mavericks...
