The Berenice A. Carroll Feminism, Peace, and Social Justice Awards
The Awards are intended to foster and recognize contributions to scholarship and activism that are related to engagement with feminist studies, peace studies, and other social justice issues. They aim to honor Berenice Carroll’s contributions to teaching, scholarship and activism of various sorts (anti-war, feminist, pro-ERA, anti-sweatshop, to name a few) by encouraging students involved in feminist or social justice work—be it purely academic, purely activist, or a mixture of both—to apply for this award. The Awards Committee will award annual prizes for outstanding contributions by undergraduate and graduate students. Analytical papers and creative/activist projects will be accepted for consideration. Application and Instructions can be found here: http://www.purdue.edu/butler/documents/Instructionsandapplicationform.BereniceCarrollAwards.2012.pdf

Senator Janet Howell, Baddass Bitch of the Day

To protest a bill that would require women to undergo an ultrasound before having an abortion, Virginia State Sen. Janet Howell (D-Fairfax) on Monday attached an amendment that would require men to have a rectal exam and a cardiac stress test before obtaining a prescription for erectile dysfunction medication.

“We need some gender equity here,” she told HuffPost. “The Virginia senate is about to pass a bill that will require a woman to have totally unnecessary medical procedure at their cost and inconvenience. If we’re going to do that to women, why not do that to men?”

I stumbled upon this news story in today’s Lafayette Journal Courier about Taryn Gerson, one of your classmates, who is helping raise money for breast cancer awareness. Check out the article for more information.

I hope Taryn doesn’t mind me giving her fundraiser a plug.
