Return to Krista's Korner

"Each of us must come to care about everyone else's children. We must recognize that the well being of our own children is intimately linked to the well being of all other people's children. After all, when one of our children needs life-saving surgery, someone else's child will perform it. When one of our children is harmed by violence, someone else's child will commit it. The good life for our own children can be secured only if it is also secured for all other people's children. But to work for the well being of all children is not just a practical matter-- it is also right!" - Lilian G. Katz, Phd.

holidaycard.jpg

Here is some holiday reading of the feminist variety, and a day early, too. Thanks to all the nominators, particularly as I have not been able to surf too much this last little while. And a happy Winter Solstice to all!

Organizing:

Anthony writes about Nupi Lal in Manipur: 'Nupi Lan means the women's war, Nupi meaning women and Lan meaning war, when women stood up in an uprising againts what we called chak tangba (inflation of food i.e. rice).'

Neha Vish on child labour.

Antonia asks, do we need 'More women Tories?'

Nathanael writes about Turkish women in Germany.

Jill at Feministe posts On Helping Women, about the Haven Coalition, a group who 'invite low-income women into their homes when these women travel to New York for abortions. They feed them. They give them a place to sleep. They bring them to the clinic the next morning.'

Art/design/culture:

Melinda of Sour Duck nominates this post 'for its scathing title, brevity, controversy, and general good pointedness.'

Natalie Bennett offers 'The National Portrait Gallery: Eight of my favourite women.'

Holly asks, Are Women Lousy at Designing Clothes for Women? Also see Why Men Dress Women at 11D.

Twisty Faster dislikes Lucy.
