The Gender Public Advocacy Coalition is pleased to announce the release of its 2008 GENIUS Survey in partnership with Ernst & Young. GenderPAC works to ensure that classrooms, communities and workplaces are safe for everyone to learn, grow and succeed. The Gender Equality National Index for Universities & Schools (GENIUS)
, GenderPAC’s most recent effort to end discrimination and promote awareness, encourages colleges and universities to recognize the benefits of a GenderSAFE campus - supportive equitable and protective for all students. Choosing to participate in GENUIS sends a strong public statement that bullying or discriminating based on the race, sex or gender of a student, faculty, or staff member is not tolerated at your institution
Fill out the survey at: www.gpac.org/GENIUS2008survey
, and make sure that we have data for as many schools as possible. Your voice will help us continue to work towards a safe and welcoming environment for every student

for your attention
the relevant piece here is
"The oh-so-civilized West: blames rapes victims as young as ten for dressing 'provacatively', tells women that all men are rapists"
indeed that seems to be the opinion. The officially held legal opinion in a country like Ireland. Why otherwise would rape victims be harassed about "dressing provocatively" or "leading him on". One should ask the judge and defending barrister: "so would you rape a provocatively dressed you woman as a matter of course?"

The White Ribbon Campaign
In 1991, a lone gunman got into a university campus in Montreal, Canada and entered a class where he segregated all the female students at gunpoint and shot them - because he hated feminists.
The 'Montreal Massacre', as it became dubbed, galvinised public opinion in Canada, and led to the formation of the White Ribbon campaign. First in Canada, and then around the world, hundreds of thousands of men pledged that they would never commit, or condone, violence against women. they also pledged themselves to challenge sexist talk and behaviour if they encountered it personally.
there was a lot of publicity in the early years in Canada, and some said that this was taking media attention and charitable donations from women's refuges and similar groups. So the Campaign began fundraising themselves on behalf of these groups. Funds raised by local branches are donated to women's refuges and similar organisations, and the 6th of December provided the focus of these efforts.
I have to say that I was unaware of this until recently, but when a freind posted about it on a community i belonged to, I signed up. I also founded a community on LJ for those who wish to spread the message on line, and support those who take the pledge to become local activists.
A recent survey has revealed that almost one man in three in the Uk felt that a woman who went out on her own , or wore short skits, or got drunk was somehow "asking for it" if she go raped. or put another way, over two thirds of us are still decent blokes, right? But how many men are going to stand by and let us all be branded as "potential rapists", or let the the actions of a lawless minority dictate how the debate goes in the media? i say it's time that decent blokes like ourselves took a stand and made our feelings known. It's time we got organised and got represented for who we really are in the media and the public perception.
To find out more about the White Ribbon Campaign, go to our community, _white_ribbons
. Thank you.

OT: for the blokes
When you dress to impress (clubbing not formalwear), ie wear stuff is meant to be sexy or attractive: do you prefer comfy wide pants, or tight fitting ones to show off your legs? And what cut? flares? tight all the way down?

hi everyone, i am a student of masculinity studies - particularly in politics. this is an interesting article on a so called feminization of industrialized socities, bascially arguing that there may be a connection between a rise in feminism and the usage of chemicals in our consumption.http://www.worldandi.com/public/2001/October/sax.html
in regards to the discussion about males being less of a role model, were they ever? i would argue that the father is just as much the head of the family as always. it seems that thinking of this role of the patriarch as once being the model of the father on leave it to beaver is more nostalgic than reflecting reality. however, i could be wrong - my background is more theory based than historically so.

There room for an opinionated lady here?
Saw this on gothwalk's LJ and thought I'd wander on over and read, maybe join.
I'm definately not male but as a woman who tends to mainly have male friends.. (and well I've dated my fair share of the other half of the species *grin* even married a couple of them though that's never worked out yet)..anyways, I'm rambling again. I'm 25, Canadian, in the SCA, Pagan, and a single mom to a three year old daughter. (and maybe if her father had had a better child-hood/better role models than just his JROTC instructor, he'd have stuck around and BEEN a daddy) oh and my name is Cat and I am a student working towards getting my RN.
