SIGNAL BOOST THIS NEWS! Seriously, how come this isn’t all over tumblr? Angelina Jolie presided over the largest ever global anti-rape summit. She is using her celebrity for good. She is addressing rape in wartime and in conflict zones, which is where it is perpetuated on the most massive scale and in which context always has been used as a weapon.

Feminists of tumblr should get behind this woman. Let’s stop the perpetual erasure and trivialization of women in the media through their sexualization and start looking at the work that they do. Her acts here are easily in danger of being eclipsed by her image in the tabloids which is more concerned with her relationship to Brad Pitt and the fact that she is a sex symbol than the important feminist work that she is performing RIGHT NOW. 

I am such a fan of this lady… and she does not deserve to be trivialized for being a woman, a sex symbol, and a celebrity. Here, she is working for social justice for women all over the world. She’s doing what’s right.

FY Angelina Jolie

Fetishizing ‘power’ in women characters – having them kicking ass and always being ready with a putdown - isn’t the same as writing them as human beings.

An excellent point.

On being unseen.

feminally:

My good deeds are secret: words whispered in a small room with a strong woman who can only let go when the door’s closed.
My good deeds are hidden- in midnight kitchens with mothers who can’t find their sons or catch their breath.
My good deeds are silent- simply present with her in a hospital room that still smells like the way he hurt her.
My good deeds stay with me- they cling to my clothes while I prepare my dinner, while I bathe my daughter, and while I choose what I will wear
tomorrow.

It is so easy to recognize a hero that kicks in doors, that stitches wounds, that arrests perpetrators. It is almost impossible to see- let alone honor- those who are there in the aftermath- the victim’s rights advocates, the shelter staff, the peer counselors.
But they are there- and they are wonderful.

This is legit.

More PSAs need to stop worrying about offending people and get down to the nitty gritty like this. It’s the only way to open so many eyes.
