So much of what I see on tumblr re: riot grrrl is the rehashing of old riot grrrl slogans, so it was really restorative for me to listen to/see something that goes deeper, that reminds me that the women involved in riot grrrl are living, breathing, growing, learning people with interesting thoughts and perspectives — that they’re not just the static words and images that people reblog endlessly.

The Purity Myth Trailer. Produced & Distributed by the Media Education Foundation

In this video adaptation of her bestselling book, pioneering feminist blogger Jessica Valenti trains her sights on “the virginity movement” — an unholy alliance of evangelical Christians, right-wing politicians, and conservative policy intellectuals who have been exploiting irrational fears about women’s sexuality to roll back women’s rights. From dad-and-daughter “purity balls,” taxpayer-funded abstinence-only curricula, and political attacks on Planned Parenthood, to recent attempts by legislators to de-fund women’s reproductive health care and narrow the legal definition of rape, Valenti identifies a single, unifying assumption: the myth that the worth of a woman depends on what she does — or does not do — sexually. In the end, Valenti argues that the health and well-being of women are too important to be left to ideologues bent on vilifying feminism and undermining women’s autonomy.

When a girl in the developing world receives seven or more
years of education, she marries four years later and has 2.2 
fewer children.
(United Nations Population Fund, State of World Population 1990. )

When women and girls earn income, they reinvest 90 per-cent of it into their families, as compared to only 30 to 40 
percent for a man.
(Chris Fortson, “Women’s Rights Vital for Developing World,” Yale News Daily 2003.)
