    Reject the idea that a woman gaining weight is letting go of herself. Throw that entire concept in a dumpster. Stop posting pictures of women who weigh more than they used to as a way to show that theyve “stopped caring” and instead lets post more pictures of cool dogs and tons of selfies with neat stickers on them

    fun prank: teach girls from an early age that their entire worth lays in how pretty they are, then make fun of them for being “”“superficial”“”

  3. "The problem is that white people see racism as conscious hate, when racism is bigger than that. Racism is a complex system of social and political levers and pulleys set up generations ago to continue working on the behalf of whites at other people’s expense, whether whites know/like it or not. Racism is an insidious cultural disease. It is so insidious that it doesn’t care if you are a white person who likes black people; it’s still going to find a way to infect how you deal with people who don’t look like you. Yes, racism looks like hate, but hate is just one manifestation. Privilege is another. Access is another. Ignorance is another. Apathy is another. And so on. So while I agree with people who say no one is born racist, it remains a powerful system that we’re immediately born into. It’s like being born into air: you take it in as soon as you breathe. It’s not a cold that you can get over. There is no anti-racist certification class. It’s a set of socioeconomic traps and cultural values that are fired up every time we interact with the world. It is a thing you have to keep scooping out of the boat of your life to keep from drowning in it. I know it’s hard work, but it’s the price you pay for owning everything."

  4. WARWICK ANTI-FASCIST DEMO

    In response to Neo-Nazi Fascist activity at Warwick, Warwick Anti-Racism Society held an anti-Fascist demo on 1st June. The fact that Fascist activity was taking place on campus is truly terrifying and heartbreaking; thankfully, the founder of the group has left campus and the demo was an amazing success. WASS obviously completely supported the demo to show that, along with the other liberation groups on campus and the entire Warwick student population, we will never condone racism, anti-semitism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia or ableism. 


     

     

     

  5. RECLAIM THE NIGHT 2014

    On 1st March 2014, Coventry held its first Reclaim the Night march since the 70s! WASS teamed up with the Coventry University Gender Equality Society to hold the march across the streets of the city. The night was extremely successful and powerful, and we’re so grateful for everyone who joined us and spoke at the end of the march.

  7. Why Dove’s “Real Beauty Sketches” Video Makes Me Uncomfortable… and Kind of Makes Me Angry

    jazzylittledrops:

    So this video started going around my facebook today, with about a dozen of my female friends sharing the link with comments like, and “Everyone needs to see this”, and “All girls should watch this,” and “This made me cry.” And I’m not trying to shame those girls! I definitely understand why they would do so. And I don’t want to be a killjoy. But as I clicked the link and started watching the video, I started to feel a slight sense of discomfort. I couldn’t put my finger on why that was, exactly, but it continued throughout the whole thing. After watching the video several more times, I have some thoughts…

  10. Moo-sogyny

    Moo Bar in Leamington have recently re-decorated and this is what they have decided to put on the walls of one section of the bar. Huge, sexualised images with accompanying text of prostitution, slavery, and even schoolgirls. We should not have to put up with seeing things like this when we go out for a dance. If you agree, please sign our petition!
