Stop Misusing the Term 'Empowerment'

Helen Reeves | Posted 11.05.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Helen Reeves

With the common mantra that "sex sells" and the idea that we have now reached a cultural peak of sexual openness and opportunity, a so-called 'post-feminist' outlook might argue that women today are now more sexually empowered to make a broader range of sexual choices. But whilst it's laudable that women are allowed to be sexual and openly enjoy sex; surely empowerment would be doing that on our own terms?

As with just about every feminist campaign in history, it didn't take long before we found a backlash. Ours came from fellow students as well as university bodies, calling a boycott of The Sun illiberal, painting us an authoritarian, conservative voice out to censor people's freedoms at every corner.

My friend said "My boyfriend doesn't want you to come over. He thinks you're a slut who's just going to jump into bed and have sex with us." I could only assume from this statement that he had mistaken the word 'polyamorist' for 'rapist'.

Is This What Rape Culture Looks Like?

A consent culture, where both partners are encouraged to take an active role in their sex lives would lead not only to a reduction of the 'grey area', where rape can be most easily dismissed, but would also lead to more gratifying sex for both men and women.

It Doesn't Matter What We Wear

Paige Shepherd | Posted 29.04.2013 | UK Lifestyle

The research is not ambiguous on this topic; there is no relationship or association between the clothing and likelihood of being raped. So in the face of overwhelming evidence that clothing does not prevent rape or assault, the real question becomes why do people keep suggesting it does?

Slut-Shaming, Taylor Swift and Female Sexuality

Helen Charman | Posted 27.04.2013 | UK Universities & Education
Helen Charman

Taylor Swift is, in many ways, far from a negative role model for young women, but the near fanatical devotion she inspires in many of her legions of supporters illustrates that the message she is giving out is one that is likely to hit home, and it isn't a healthy one.

Female Freshers, Beware the Slut-Shaming

A sexual double standard of male and female promiscuity is arguably an inescapable, endemic feature of university life. Female promiscuity at university risks severe condemnation where the derogatory terms such as 'slut' and 'whore' will be used.

I grew up with words like 'slut' and 'whore' being thrown around by my peers, used in reference to both genders, but more typically slanted towards girls. Only a handful of boys gained reputations as 'man-sluts', and even then they tended to be held in high esteem.

I shuddered as I watched women in odd, outdated outfits carrying signs saying: "This is what I was wearing when I was raped. Tell me I asked for it."
