Link Roundup: Media

The Vagina News plate-clearing continues! Today, the ups and downs of sexism in media.

Uplifting piece (in Glamour, of all places) on how women’s changing attitudes toward sexual assault are changing how we talk about it on a large scale.  

Today’s ‘girls’ toys’ are a lot a) pinker, and b) sexier than they were a generation ago. 

Great images from the ‘I need feminism because…’ project.  (Thanks Di!) And the wonderful Soraya Chemaly’s ‘Why Society Still Needs Feminism.’ These deserve to be greeting cards.

You’re probably familiar with the argument that sexual violence is common in human and animal nature. Newsflash – that’s bullshit. 

Finally, a great piece by a great male ally – Frank Bruni.
