Dreams for Women - We're back!!!













We're back!!!! Sorry again for the absence and the length of the absence! I was home visiting family and as soon as I was back... I had family here to visit! Anyways, Dreams for Women is back to normal and will be coming to you every second Saturday. Here is the 13th week of the Dreams for Women art project and I just want to thank everyone for all the fabulous postcards that have been submitted so far. You gals have been doing such a fabulous job!
Thanks to all those who submitted... and keep it up... spread the word! I just wanted to remind readers that we currently only post postcards every second week! We're hoping to post them every week but we need your help! So get some friends together and make some postcards and send them in!

Also, here's another link to the movies!











Antigone Magazine is launching a Feminist Postcard art project! We want to know what your Dreams for Women are.What are your own dreams for yourself, your friends, your sisters, your daughters? Paint, draw, write, sketch or decoupage your dreams on a postcard and send it to the address below:

With your postcard submission, we ask that you make a donation (if you can!) to Antigone Magazine for anywhere from $1 to $10. You can send your money along with your postcard or donate on our blog: http://www.antigonemagazine.blogspot.com/ .
But don't worry... if you don't have the money, just send along the postcard and tell people about this program.
What is Antigone Magazine? We're a grassroots national magazine that works to encourage young women to get involved in politics in Canada. We work to empower young women to engage politically and civically and to actively take part in leadership roles.We are raising the money in order to help launch the Antigone Foundation, a national foundation that will encourage young women aged 10-30 to get politically and civically engaged. Help support Antigone as we help to make the dreams of young women come true!

Sexism sells, but we're not buying it

Media companies may think that sexism sells, but I'm not buying it! The Women's Media Center is calling on national broadcast news outlets (CNN, FNC, MSNBC and NBC) to "stop treating women as a joke; to stop using inherently gendered language as an insult or criticism; and to ensure that women's voices are present and accounted for in the national political dialogue." Tucker Carlson and Marc Rudov, shame on you. Do I see a 'Most In Need of Enlightenment' Award nomination in the future?

Sexism isn't a partisan issue.
