    Cloud Cities - installation by Tomás Saraceno In Berlin’s Hamburger Bahnhof.

    Saraceno has installed over 20 huge spheres suspended at different heights in a network of black mesh.  Within each orb is a different organic material like water or plants or air.  This work is inspired by soap bubbles and spider webs (and the interaction and juxtaposition).  We think of those two items as fragile and delicate, but they are actually extremely flexible and (for the material) super strong.

    A feminist group based in Guangzhou, China staged an online protest against the sexual exploitation of women in the workplace, revealing a photograph with a message boldly written in red on a whiteboard behind them: “My vagina does not come free with my labor.” More words were written on the women’s thighs, reiterating: “Not freebies.” 

    The campaign was in response to a recent fatal rape case involving a 20-year-old woman at a state-owned company who was asked by her boss to a dinner. She was sexually assaulted by her boss’s friend and died as a result of her injuries.“Don’t ask your staff to provide part-time escort services. Women should only be asked to provide knowledge or technical skills in the workplace, but not other things,” says Ye Haiyan, an advocate of women’s and children’s rights.

    mediamattersforamerica:

    Fox spent much of its VMA coverage questioning Beyonce’s ability to promote feminism while being "extremely sexual."  

    Megyn Kelly labeled Beyonce’s message and lyrics as “skanky,” while a FoxNews.com article claimed the singer “seemed to ensure her behind was the focus on each song, all the while educating young viewers about feminism.”

    On The Five, Fox hosts suggested “she’s auditioning for a future husband,” and Greg Gutfeld announced that ”the greatest thing about pop culture is convincing women that acting like strippers is empowering.” 

    What Fox failed to recognize is that expressing sexuality does not automatically remove a woman’s right to discuss equality. Instead, the network righteously slut-shamed Beyonce and used her performance as basis to attack feminism as a whole. In reality, such policing of women’s sexuality has harmed progress toward equality. The very same mindset has been used to dismiss women’s need to access contraception, and blame rape survivors for their own assaults. 

    If anyone is going to be shamed, it should be Fox and its irresponsible coverage of women’s issues. 

    PREACH
