('I will not be lectured on sexism and misogyny by this man, I will not. Because if he wants to know what misogyny looks like in modern Australia, he doesn't need a motion in the House of Representatives, he needs a mirror.')
'If I was the first Indigenous prime minister, and Abbott had gone out and stood next to a sign that said, ‘Ditch the black bastard,’ I reckon that would be the end of a political career.' (Gillard in Murphy, 2013).
SOCIETY SCRAPBOOK - porn filters
The implication is that it's normal to want access to porn, and abnormal not to want access to porn. Yet it's clear from much of the criticism that using porn is the sort of normality that people have some reservations about sharing with others, even the people most close to them. (Orr, 2013).
BODY IMAGE SCRAPBOOK - pubic hair
since pheromones that are secreted to play a role in sexual attraction may be held in body hair, biologically, women with more pubic hair are sexier. (Pamela Stephenson, 2013).
"Fitting back into pre-pregnancy jeans is not the priority after childbirth." (Swinson in Jones, 2013).
Do not have sex with a member of the royal family. Whatever they promise, your prince has not come. (Moore, 2013b).
Two things are unarguable about this century; the first is that it is more sexist than the end of the last, raunch and postmodernism having converged to normalise the presentation of women as meat; the second is that the internet has had profound consequences for privacy and, inevitably, personal freedom. But pause to consider the vivacity of the feminist fourth wave, its energy and victories, the way it has honed and deployed the power of social media rather than surrendered to the misogynist tropes it throws up. It is fearless and pugnacious and alive with a sense of possibility. (Williams, 2013b).
As well as a portrait of Austen, the new note will include images of her writing desk and quills at Chawton Cottage, in Hampshire, where she lived; her brother's home, Godmersham Park, which she visited often, and is thought to have inspired some of her novels, and a quote from Miss Bingley, in Pride and Prejudice: "I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading!" (Allen and Stewart, 2013).
The herds eat up the grass that previously supported antelopes, wild asses and their predators. Further problems were retaliatory killings of leopards and wolves by herders after livestock attacks, the killing of wild animals by herders' dogs and the transfer of disease from livestock to wild animals. (Carrington, 2013).
The summer is well and truly here, so what to wear during these warms days and nights? Whether you want something bold and bright, short and sweet or black and white, our pick of the best summer dresses on the racks right now are sure to float your boat (Guardian, 2013a).
The one surprising element was how Diana-esque the look was. The image of Diana in polka dots on the same steps in 1982 has been much revisited in recent days, and there was a clear echo of that dress here. Whether the echo was a conscious one, or made unconsciously via the sleep-and hormone-muddled haze of new motherhood, we can only speculate. Like Diana, Kate has the glamour-hair of her generation. (Cartner-Morley, 2013b).
