Porn and feminism

A really refreshing look at porn and feminism (link in title) where the writer talks to various non-exploitative film-makers and discusses with them what they think is important about making porn films, and how porn can be reconciled with feminism. Kudos for the expression ' po-mo homo porno'.

Feminist book club - part 1

So, it's my unilateral decision this time - democracy can come later - and I'm suggesting two books, to read over two months, as that gives us all a bit more flexibility, especially those of us with finals in May...Books one and two are The female eunuch by Germaine Greer and The dialectic of sex by Shulamith Firestone. Anyone interested in reading along is very welcome to, and eventually we'll have a drink and discuss the books. Men are very welcome to join in!
