Description

Domestic violence, harassment and rape are for example so common and trivialised that we're essentially conditioned to think they're part of "normal" life - no one bats an eyelid when about 90% of women report experiencing harassment in public, yet when we get a highly mediatised case like that of Sarah Everard the authorities present it as "an exception", "a bad apple", and so on, as if it came as a suprise that a man with overtly misogynistic views and behaviours who had been reported before would end up abusing his position of power to rape and murder a woman. This was another great exploration of misogyny and every day sexism, it made me angry (but if it doesn't I am concerned for you!

Nggak sampai 200 halaman yang sekiranya bisa dilahap untuk membuka wawasan kita terhadap ketimpangan gender. Thank you Laura Bates for writing such an important book and for advocating for those of us who had not yet been able to, or might never, find the right words. Combining stories with shocking evidence, Fix the System, Not the Women is a blazing examination of sexual injustice and a rallying cry for reform. She is the recipient of two honorary degrees, an honorary fellow of St John's College Cambridge and was awarded the Internet and Society Award by the Oxford Internet Institute alongside Sir Tim Berners Lee.I understand I can change my preference through my account settings or unsubscribe directly from any marketing communications at any time. Especially men who believe feminists hate men for no reason and society is equal and there's no point to feminism, because they've never seen or experienced the things feminists are complaining about - that's privilege. This book examines how everyday accounts of sexism have become so ingrained into daily life that not only do we not even notice them half the time, but they've infiltrated and infected every structure of society. What if women can’t network, mentor, charm, assert and lean in their way out of sexism because this is a system that is rigged against them?

This book will infuriate you and open your eyes to so many injustices that you simply accept as “life as it is” presented with many accounts from real women and statistics that will shock, frighten and sadden you. Of course you wouldn't be aware of something if it doesn't affect you - you don't have to, but that's just blissful ignorance. WITH A BRAND-NEW CHAPTER 'An astute and persuasive page-turner' OBSERVER'Powerful’ SUNDAY TIMES'I challenge any man to read this and still deny there's a problem'  NEW STATESMAN Too often, we blame women.

At first I felt like I was already familiar with the material that was covered jn this but then I realised, it’s probably because Laura Bates is very much the OG on a lot of the content we hear discussed elsewhere - to say she’s across her subject is an understatement and I felt like she was able to include many other considerations and cultures in her argument through her own wide angle lens. And it’s sad and infuriating reading all these stories of abuse, harassment, abuse of power, exclusion, and rape.

This is essential reading for absolutely everyone, it made my stomach turn and made me incredibly sad. Kali ini pilihanku jatuh kepada buku barunya Laura Bates yang berjudul Fix the System, Not the Women. Laura Bates is the founder of the Everyday Sexism Project, an ever-increasing collection of over 100,000 testimonies of gender inequality, with branches in 25 countries worldwide.It’s all the things you know, from your experience in this world as a woman to be true, but now with statistics!
