Hi–here are some links to articles and ideas we’ve been discussing in class. Take a look!

This article discusses the gender wage gap.

It may come down to this troubling reality, new research suggests: Work done by women simply isn’t valued as highly.

AND

….pure discrimination may account for 38 percent of the gender pay gap.

The article ends with a few suggestions–take a look, especially if your project deals with this issue.

Also, if you’re looking for more information for your projects, take a look at the “Family Inequality” blog.

Sexuality/Intimacy Readings

Last week I mentioned an article that discusses the idea of “intimate justice”–here it is. The focus is on young girls’ sexuality. The ideas in the article fit with some of what’s in your textbook. I’ll add more readings to the topic…it’s an interesting one. And, like we discussed last week, falls in with our (western) idea that sexuality and sexual pleasure are defining features of our identities.
