Bonjour, Tout nouveau membre ici, je suis chercheur en marketing et je m'interesse a la maniere dont les femmes sonst percues par leurs tenues dans le monde politique francais. J'ai écrit cet article, et j'aimerais avoir votre avis sur la question, merci d'avance. David La mode des femmes ministres, un look pas si « normal » que ça ? Alors que le nouveau gouvernement Jean-Marc Ayrault voit l’arrivée de la parité homme/femmes pour la 1ère fois dans l’histoire, certaines d’entre elles font beaucoup parler d’elles par leur look, ce qui nous rappelle l’époque Rachida Dati (avec ses vêtements et accessoires de luxe) ou encore Roselyne Bachelot et ses crocs roses qui avaient fait un tabac à l’époque. Après que Cécile Duflot, ministre de l’Egalité des Territoires et du logement ait fait parler d'elle en portant un jean lors du premier conseil des ministres ainsi qu’une robe dans l’hémicycle, jetons un petit coup d’œil comparatif à ses collègues... ]]>

(also posted in "Current Issues") As a response to Iranian woman artist Shirin Neshat's recent TED Talk -- Does the artist bear a certain social responsibility to challenge the status quo? What is the role of the artist? Should art be able to function outside of a political context? Does the artist bear a certain social responsibility to challenge the status quo? Or is it enough for the artist to entertain? What, exactly, is the role of the artist? Watch Neshat’s Talk here and discuss: http://artistsonthelam.blogspot.com/2011/06/discussion-art-as-political-weapon.html ]]>

It is widely believed that women are entering into politics in the context of Asian Countries.There are so many women leaders having their influence in the party structure at the national and provincial level.The question arises-- Whether these women leaders who are at the helm of affairs played a significant role for the empowerment of women. ]]>

A recent article by Laura Mannen in the Freedom Socialist (http://www.socialism.com/fsarticles/vol30no1/nicaragua.html) details the rightward swing of the Sandinista National Liberation Front and President Daniel Ortega, and how this affects the ability for women in that country to control their own bodies and even to congregate as activists. In a cynical move, Ortega and his wife denounce feminists as cultural imperialists and agents of foreign subversion. Read the article and add your voice to defend feminist organizing and women's right to biological self-determination. Messages can be sent to Presidente Daniel Ortega, Reparto El Carmen, Costado Oeste del Parque El Carmen, Managua, Nicaragua... ]]>

Fresh from the polls this morning, I decided to peek at Daily Kos to see any early election coverage ... only to find their final Cheers & Jeers poll has the following names on it: McCain Obama Nader Barr No McKinney? Not even in an opinion poll on an ostensibly progressive blog? All men? What a disappointment. ]]>

By: Grace Lin
Friday, October 31, 2008 7:57:08 AM

I am a woman in politics (www.graceforcongress.com). I am running for Congress in New York in the 8th District. I find that it is helpful to talk to people about what concerns them. So if they are women than speaking to issues that concern women are important. I do think it needs to be a balance. If a politician comes off as only catering to the female vote it can be distasteful to both women and men. I believe it is most helpful if many traditionally female issues are presented with non-gender specific frameworks. ]]>

Although the "women’s liberation movement" is long over, the issues that movement stood for, issues that screamed "the personal is political”--such as ending economic discrimination against women, supporting equal pay for equal work, etc., as well as critiquing the personal spheres of marriage and the family, are still red hot issues in the U.S. of the 21st century: * Women still make 30% less than men. * Men do only 30% of the housework in "traditional" families. * In November, California is likely to pass Prop 8, banning same-sex marriage. Issues are clouded by hazy media-generated images of sexy shapely women “on top” having it all, while conservative special interest groups spend spend spend in order to buy the right to decide who can marry and who can’t... ]]>

Amal, your viewpoint is very thought provoking. I believe that while it is important to see woman well represented in government, it is even more important that these women be qualified, but even more than that, the women should be more than mere puppets. My biggest questions and concerns would be: Are the women elected and placed in position in governement actually able to bring about positive change not just for other women, but for the country as a whole? I think that often when women are elected into any government seat, she is expected to solely address the issues of women. As when people of color are elected into a governement office, they are expected to be their own experts... ]]>
<![CDATA[A Voting Dress Code?]]> http://www.imow.org/community/forum/viewThread?threadId=230 Wed, 15 Oct 2008 11:04:21 GMT Wednesday, October 15, 2008 4:04:21 AM

Hi Everyone, I just received notice from my Virginia state delegate that the Virginia State Board of Elections has adopted a ban on "clothing, hats, buttons and other paraphernilia that directly advocates the election or defeat of a specific candidate or issue. The ban is effective inside polling places or a long held perimeter of 40 feet from polling place entrances. The American Civil Liberties Union argued that the ban violates the First Amendment's right to free speech. The board, however, said it has to weigh that against the right to vote free of undue influence or the tension that candidate advocacy might create." But, I have to wonder will I next be told that I can't wear fishnet stockings to the poll because it might offend someone, prevent them from voting or cause some kind of stir among those in the polling line? I'd appreciate other's insights into this matter... ]]>

I kind of disagree with what Michael have said about women in Kuwait and Saudi Arabia in terms of being looked down by a certain group or people, even though they are smart. The thing that most of the people don't understand is that women themselves, or lets say a great number of them were not actually thinking that they are under oppression or something like this. And what backs this up is actually the fact that most of them in Kuwait and Saudi Arabia are properties owners, bussiness women, and very educated... ]]>
