Did Hillary Pass the New York Times’ Feminist Test?
All together the essays I read showed a range of ages and opinions circling one idea – “Is Hillary a good enough feminist?” Funny. I didn’t realize Hillary was running for Feminist. I thought she was running for President.
Brand. Images of multinational corporations form in my head when I see that word. We have barely noticed that the word brand has slipped into our lexicon to assist us when we describe ourselves and our beliefs. It’s shocking. Brands sell products. They are trademarked. A brand is also burned into the skin of an animal to mark ownership. It can’t be undone and it never changes.Remember the phrase “corporations are people” from the 2012 presidential debate? It was more insightful than many care to believe.

Congratulations to Jennifer Lee on being named Global Ambassador for the Global Media Monitoring Project! Here are some updates about her and her work.
Women’s History Month Screenings in Public Libraries
Global Ambassador for Global Media Monitoring Project
March is Women’s History Month and “Feminist: Stories from Women’s Liberation” will be screening for free in March in public libraries around the country. This is part of the Women’s History Month initiative.
I just returned from a great screening at the University at Buffalo. The screening was hosted by The Society of Feminists.
Additionally, I have been appointed one of four Global Ambassadors for the Global Media Monitoring Project. The GMMP is the longest longitudinal study of women in the media globally. Every five years the GMMP have monitors around the world who watch the news and report on the representation of women in news stories and as anchors and reporters. I will talk about the information in my presentations of “Feminist: Stories from Women’s Liberation.”
Have a great Women’s History Month!
Jennifer“Monitoring media around the world means “you are getting a reaction from a person not in the media bubble and getting a perspective we don’t normally get,” Lee noted.”
–GMMP Ambassador: feminist filmmaker Jennifer Lee by Solange De Santis February 24, 2014
The 2014 Global Ambassadors for the Global Media Monitoring Project!
“The GMMP, which has been held every five years since 1995, monitors the representation of women in global media. So far, the monitoring shows extremely slow progress in bringing women’s voices to bear in public discourse taking place through the news media. Not only does the news present a male-centric view of the world, it is also marked by gender bias and extensive stereotyping that underpin marginalization, discrimination and violence against girls and women.” – GMMP to have Ambassadors“Feminist Stories” is poignant, funny, very powerful, and unapologetic.”

“This is a MUCH SEE film for anyone who is interested in the women’s liberation movement. This film addresses issues of intersectionality and provides important clips of a broad cross section of women activists.” – Linda M. Perkins, Associate University Professor and Director of Applied Women’s Studies and Africana Studies Certificate Program, Claremont Graduate CollegeThere are many ways to construct the narrative of this history, but Jennifer has put together one of the best. In one beautifully organized hour of video, she is able to cover the deep roots of women’s discontent in the postwar years, the brave and pioneering individuals who opened up to her about their women’s liberation experiences, and – most movingly – acknowledgement of the innumerable other women, the movement’s rank and file, in one of the great grass roots political developments of the era. Thank you Jennifer!” – Professor Ellen Dubois, UCLA Department of History“Remembering and studying the women who broke the barriers before us is not just the right thing to do; we ignore their hard-won lessons at our own peril. For American women, our careless amnesia is plain poison and Lee’s film is a healthy portion of the antidote. – Amnesia: Feminism’s Poison Pill, Huffington Post, Kamala Lopez
