Susan G. Komen Stops Grants to Planned Parenthood

 


feminist mystique
 
Opinion, by Shannon
 

Yesterday, Susan G. Komen announced that they will stop supporting Planned Parenthood. In the past, they have given approx. $700,000 to Planned Parenthood, helping provide nearly 170,000 clinical breast exams and 6,400 mammogram referrals at Planned Parenthood centers across the nation. 

 
In the past five years, Planned Parenthood has provided more than 4 million clinical breast exams and 70,000 mammogram referrals, often helping low-income or uninsured women detect breast cancer in the earliest stages. 
 
When I found out about this last night, I was outraged. I couldn\'t believe that the Susan G. Komen foundation would put politics ahead of women\'s lives. Luckily, I quickly learned from facebook and twitter that many others felt the same. Planned Parenthood and Komen were actually trending last night because there were so many people denouncing their actions. The Komen foundation\'s facebook page was also full of negative comments, although they seemed to be working overtime to delete them. I wrote a post telling them that their actions were shameful and that I wouldn\'t support them financially or attend any event sponsored by them until they re-fund Planned Parenthood. It received about 30 likes in the seconds before it was deleted.

Jornadas ‘Acoso Sexual y Acoso por Razón de Sexo como Formas de Violencia de Género’

 
Amecopress
 
La negociación colectiva y el diálogo social son instrumentos fundamentales para erradicar el acoso sexual y por razón de sexo en las empresas
 
Madrid, 13 ene. 12. Amecopress. La secretaria de la Mujer de CCOO de Andalucía, Antonia Martos, explicó en unas jornadas celebradas en Granada sobre ‘Acoso Sexual y Acoso por Razón de Sexo’, el papel de los sindicatos y de las organizaciones empresariales en torno al acoso sexual y por razón de sexo. En su intervención, insistió en la implantación de protocolos de actuación contra el acoso en las empresas, y en la necesidad de sensibilización e implicación de trabajadoras y trabajadores, empresariado y administración como “requisito fundamental para eliminar estas conductas, perjudiciales no sólo para las personas afectadas, sino también para las propias empresas\".
 
La responsable sindical afirmó durante su intervención que el acoso sexual y el acoso moral por razón de sexo son una realidad generalmente oculta, pero muy extendida, que precisa de un adecuado tratamiento para prevenir estas conductas, sancionar las que se produzcan y minimizar las graves consecuencias del acoso en la salud y el desarrollo profesional de las mujeres afectadas.

Francesca Polini y su esposo viven en Londres; con el permiso del gobierno inglés contactaron a la agencia Adoption Alliance en Denver, Estados Unidos; a su vez esta agencia les contactó con un despacho jurídico de Guadalajara, México, donde les aseguraron podrían adoptar al bebé de su elección.

Women of Color Make Films for Real Women

Thinking Outside the Blockbuster: Women of Color Make Films for Real Women
 
By Melissa Robertson
 
For many American filmgoers it might sound unbelievable that only about 6% of all fiction filmmakers are women. However, to both professional and aspiring women filmmakers this is a well-known and all-too-well-experienced fact. And unfortunately, success rates vary. Sofia Coppola (Lost in Translation, The Virgin Suicides), Mary Harron (American Psycho), and Amy Heckerling (Fast Times at Ridgemont High) are just a few (often-unrecognized) women who have directed some of America’s most beloved classics. To be sure, their kind of success is rare. In 2009, Kathryn Bigelow won the Academy Award for Best Director for The Hurt Locker—80 years after the inception of that award.
 
Recognition of any woman in cinema is hard to come by. For women of color the outlook is even bleaker. The most recent example is Dee Rees’s Pariah, about a black lesbian teen growing up in Brooklyn. Though the film opened December 28 and already boasts an impressive 96% rating on RottenTomatoes.com, its theatrical release continues to be extremely limited. (For a more extensive look at this film, see Mecca Jamilah Sullivan’s article “Black Queer Gender and Pariah’s ‘Grand Swagger’.”) The only way to gain support, I think, is by raising awareness about these talented women and their films. I have reviewed four films—each having been written and directed by a woman of color.

Guatemala Heeds the Cries of Femicide Victims

 
ips gender wire
 
By Danilo Valladares
 
Demonstrators demand that the disappearance of Cristina Siekavizza and her children be investigated. 
 
GUATEMALA CITY, Jan 31, 2012 (IPS) - The relentless wave of femicides in Guatemala, which has one of the highest female murder rates in the world, has prompted actions by the government, civil society groups, and two Nobel Peace laureates to try to put a stop to this brutal violence against women, which has reached horrific proportions.
 
According to information from the Presidential Commission against Racism, 705 Guatemalan women lost their lives to gender-related violence in 2011, most of them by gunfire, up from 675 deaths the year before. 
 
This alarming situation has spurred a range of reactions from both civil society and the government. 
 
On Jan. 24, only days after his inauguration as president, right-wing retired general Otto Pérez Molina formed a \"task force to combat femicide\", which is the term used in Guatemala to denote gender- motivated killings. Women\'s organisations define femicide more precisely as the phenomenon whereby women are murdered because they are women. 
 
This task force, created under the Interior Ministry, the body in charge of domestic security, will be headed by former Prosecutor Mirna Carrera and will focus on intelligence and investigative efforts with the aim of preventing more women from being murdered.

En tanto, viven con zozobra ante agudización de violencia

CONTEXTO
 
En tanto, viven con zozobra ante agudización de violencia
En la “congeladora”, mecanismo de protección para defensoras 
 
Por Anayeli García Martínez
 
México, DF, 30 ene 12 (CIMAC).- Mientras la situación de vulnerabilidad de las y los defensores de Derechos Humanos (DH) se agrava día con día, la Secretaría de Gobernación (Segob) mantiene en la “congeladora” el mecanismo de protección para activistas, criticó la Comisión Mexicana de Defensa y Promoción de los Derechos Humanos (CMDPDH).
 
La abogada de la CMDPDH, Silvia Vázquez Camacho –quien ha sido víctima de amenazas por su trabajo humanitario– afirmó que la falta de un marco normativo que proteja a las y los defensores y la impunidad dejan en riesgo a aquellas personas que se dedican a la defensa y promoción de los DH.
 
En entrevista, Vázquez Camacho señaló que actualmente las y los activistas trabajan en “un terreno complicado”, ya que viven con la zozobra de padecer amenazas y violencia. Como ejemplo citó los asesinatos de Marisela Escobedo y Susana Chávez, dos mujeres que denunciaban casos de feminicidio en Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, y los cuales siguen impunes.

La cita será semanal
 
Madrid, 31 ene. 12. Amecopress. Ni AmecoPress se salva de la crisis. Hemos hecho todo lo posible –y lo imposible- para mantener un ritmo diario en la elaboración de nuestras informaciones para la igualdad, pero los “tijeretazos presupuestarios” nos llevan a recortar la frecuencia diaria en la salida del boletín.
 
A partir de ahora, intentaremos mantener un ritmo semanal en la emisión del boletín, lo que nos obligará a variar su composición, aunque mantendremos el mismo criterio básico: defender una información subjetiva al servicio de la igualdad de género.
 
Además, actualizaremos permanentemente la web y a través de facebook difundiremos las noticias más significativas.
 
Esto no es una rendición. Seguimos adelante con nuestro esfuerzo y con el apoyo que incondicionalmente siempre hemos recibido de vosotras y vosotros. Gracias.

Requesting Organization Sign-on Supporting OCR's Letter on Sexual Violence Under Title IX

Requesting Organization Sign-on
Supporting OCR's Letter on Sexual Violence Under Title IX
 
Dear Colleague, 
 
On April 4th, 2011, the US Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) issued a “Dear Colleague Letter,” (DCL) which summarized schools’ responsibilities for addressing campus sexual violence under Title IX. The DCL offers uniformity and clarity on school’s duty to prevent and address sexual harassment and assault, and promises to improve student access to equal educational opportunities. 
 
Certain aspects of the DCL have been highly criticized, particularly the provisions requiring a preponderance of evidence standard of proof when assessing the merits of a complaint, and equitable treatment for both victims and accused students. The sign-on letter below attempts to provide support for the DCL letter, specifically addressing those contentious issues. In addition, the letter summarizes provisions that specifically relate to athletics, and schools’ responsibility to act promptly. The letter also supports the Campus SaVE Act, which would codify certain provisions of the DCL. 
 
We ask you join the Women’s Sports Foundation and the Association for Title IX Administrators (www.atixa.org) to sign the letter to the OCR before Thursday, February 2nd, 2012. 
 
To sign on, please email me with your signature block and electronic signature. If you do not have an electronic signature, we will provide a cursive font. 
 
Additionally, we encourage you to share this opportunity for sign-on with other organizations in your networks. 
 
Warm regards, 
 
Sarah J. Axelson | Advocacy & Program Coordinator

Imparable el embarazo adolescente en México

 
Por Rafael Maya Barradas * IPS/ Cimac
 
las mujeres son noticia
 
MÉXICO, ene (IPS) - Las adolescentes siguen sin contar en México con políticas públicas eficaces para prevenir embarazos no planeados y muertes maternas, así como apoyos para afrontar la pobreza.
 
Cuatro estados del país son ejemplo de la lacerante realidad para millones de mujeres adolescentes, quienes carecen de atención gubernamental para un acceso pleno de anticonceptivos, educación sexual de calidad y atención sanitaria a fin de evitar muertes ligadas con el embarazo, parto o puerperio. 
 
En Veracruz, Morelos, Oaxaca y Colima, las adolescentes –sobre todo indígenas o en situación de pobreza– conforman uno de los grupos poblacionales más vulnerables, y las autoridades no pueden satisfacer sus necesidades en materia de salud, educación y empleo.

USA
Forced Marriages Still an Ugly Secret
By Charundi Panagoda

WASHINGTON, Jan 26, 2012 (IPS) - Two years ago, 40-year-old Vidya Sri decided to leave the devastating marriage her parents had forced her into nearly two decades ago. Alone for the first time, she began an earnest quest for support groups, women\'s organisations or service providers who might help her in the healing process.

Instead, what she found was a shocking lack of awareness on forced marriages in the United States. 

Sri came to the U.S. with her parents as a toddler and grew up in New York. Her Indian parents were quite traditional, especially her father, who was adamant that she not mingle with the opposite sex. 

\"My parents were very strict about family honour. It was (important) to my father that I remain untouched, unspoiled, pure and pristine because I would be of marriageable age very soon,\" Sri said.

C-Change Launches Programme in DRC to Mitigate Gender-based Violence in Schools

C-Change implemented a programme to prevent and mitigate school-related, gender-based violence (SRGBV) in 31 schools in Katanga Province in Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The programme in the DRC uses the tested USAID Safe Schools Doorways - I & III curricula for teachers and students to promote positive changes in students, teachers, school administrators, parents, and community members on attitudes and knowledge concerning gender-based violence.

Based on formative research, the C-Change project in DRC has developed community media campaigns utilising radio, television, educational comic books and other community channels to create awareness of the issues related to SRGBV and youth. These messages focus on improving attitudes and behaviors that contribute to hostile environments for students. Materials are available here.

Guatemala escucha los gritos de las víctimas de feminicidio
Por Danilo Valladares

GUATEMALA, 27 ene (IPS) - La inclemente ola de feminicidios en Guatemala, uno de los países del mundo con mayor incidencia en estos crímenes, generó acciones gubernamentales, sociales y de dos premios Nobel para intentar detener está barbarie contra las mujeres de cifras pavorosas

Según información de la Comisión Presidencial contra el Racismo, en 2011 las mujeres que perdieron la vida en hechos violentos en este país fueron 705, la mayoría por arma de fuego y por causa de su género, frente a las 675 del año precedente. 

Ante esta realidad, el país ha querido reaccionar desde diversos ámbitos y expresiones. 

El 24 de este mes, el recién estrenado presidente, el derechista y general retirado Otto Pérez Molina, creó una \"fuerza de tarea contra el femicidio\", como se llama en Guatemala a los asesinatos de género, aunque las organizaciones de mujeres determinaron que feminicidio define el fenómeno de asesinadas por su feminidad. 

Esta unidad se dedicará a labores de inteligencia e investigación para impedir los homicidios de mujeres, tendrá al frente a la exfiscal Mirna Carrera y dependerá del Ministerio de Gobernación, encargado de la seguridad interna.

Federal immigration enforcement is mandatory, memo says
A recently released memo says that the Secure Communities program will become mandatory by 2013; states and some counties had been told they could opt out.

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano at a December speech to the… (Mark Wilson / Getty Images)
January 08, 2012|By Paloma Esquivel, Los Angeles Times
Two years after the Secure Communities immigration enforcement program was implemented, federal officials determined that choices available to local law enforcement agencies that wished to decline or limit their participation would be \"streamlined\" or \"eliminated,\" making the information-sharing program mandatory, according to a memo recently made public.

Launched in 2008, Secure Communities was promoted to local and state leaders as a way to focus immigration enforcement efforts on \"serious convicted criminals.\" But the program, which involves the FBI sharing fingerprints collected from county jails with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, has come under fire because a large percentage of immigrants caught up in the system were never convicted of a crime or were low-level offenders.

Acoso sexual en el trabajo

Es una forma más de violencia, que constituye una forma de comportamiento intolerable que atenta contra los derechos fundamentales de la persona, con una repercusión social lo suficientemente importante, ya que las víctimas, aunque se dan casos en ambos sexos, en la inmensa mayoría son mujeres. Y podría venir potenciado por una situación laboral precaria (INSHT, 1999). Todo ello afecta a las condiciones de trabajo, como un problema cada vez más grave para las empresas.

Sobre el acoso sexual, y especialmente sobre sus víctimas, existe la creencia generalizada, que puede catalogarse como mito, de que está relacionado con los cánones de belleza; sin embargo, el problema del acoso sexual tiene que ver, más bien, con las relaciones de poder (INSHT, 2001c).

La frecuencia del acoso sexual es reiterada, por lo tanto no se trata de comportamientos aislados. El acoso sexual en las organizaciones se ve favorecido por aspectos organizativos como la sexualización del entorno de trabajo, la proporción de hombres-mujeres, el tipo de tareas que realizan, la discriminación sexual, el clima laboral o la valoración del trabajo (Llaneza Álvarez, 2002).

You have a right to record the police

All over America, police have been arresting people for taking video or making sound recordings of them, even though such arrests are pretty clearly illegal. Usually, the charges are dropped once the case becomes public, and usually that’s the end of it.

But sometimes things go farther, and in two recent cases, they’ve gone far enough to bite back at the police and prosecutors involved. We need more such biting.

Argentina: Parir como “Dios manda”

Continua la polémica sobre una niña de 11 años que fue violada y su madre solicitó la interrupción del embarazo

Buenos Aires, 25 ene. 12. AmecoPress/SEMlac.- Aunque con algunos avances, la hegemonía cultural ha sido por siempre impedir, ocultar y negar a las mujeres herramientas que perpetúan la subordinación de ellas en la sociedad. El único hecho que jamás se les negó ni discutió fue el de parir.

Parir como Dios manda, parir aunque no se quiera, parir aunque no se esté capacitada psíquicamente ni físicamente. Parir, cueste lo que cueste.

Este es el ideario instalado en la sociedad y es lo que prevaleció en los últimos días en Argentina, cuando se conoció la noticia de una niña de 11 años que fue violada y su madre solicitó la interrupción del embarazo que ya lleva más de 10 semanas.

DOD sex assault prevention efforts fall short, critics say

Panetta announces new measures to combat sexual assault

WASHINGTON — While praising some of the new steps to combat sexual violence that Defense Secretary Leon Panetta announced Wednesday, critics say the Pentagon isn’t going nearly far enough.

Measures outlined by Panetta included training military advocates for sexual assault victims to the highest national standards. Meanwhile, $9.3 million would be spent on training to give rape investigations and prosecutions more teeth, he said, providing servicemembers the protection they deserve.

“We have a moral duty to keep them safe from those who would attack their dignity and their honor,” Panetta said.

But that doesn’t cut to the heart of the problem, said Anu Bhagwati, executive director of the Service Women’s Action Network.

“Commander influence is the crux of this problem,” Bhagwati said in a news release. “Spending an extra $10 million training military lawyers to try these cases does no good if commanders are not preferring sexual assault cases to trial.”
