The bored and lonely housewife embarking on a life of erotic pleasure has been a porn-movie trope since at least the days of the 8mm-stag film. But the Belle de Jour -style protagonist is never an unhappy Australian mom who goes from planning suicide, to radically reclaiming agency by hiring a male escort, to soaring to international fame as an award-winning feminist pornographer. Until now. As a gift to herself, the self-invented sex symbol had asked the duo to document the celebration — specifically her naked body suspended in Japanese rope bondage. And thus the idea of a film about an artistically defiant, middle-aged porn star was born. And from the depths of misery to ageless body positivity.

Here are the number of FAR forms in the first distribution for each year since All information obtained from various blog posts, blog comments, Tweets, and Facebook postings over the years and not independently verified. If you have more accurate information, please post it in the comments and I will update accordingly. Many candidates do this multiple rounds, so if you are already in the “system” i. It may get better in 2 years once whoever is in the system clears out, probably people will get jobs, the rest will wait another year or go back to practice.
But I would not expect to see much of an effect on the supply side this year, which is what the FAR numbers indicate. On positive side, there may not be as many people giving up secure jobs in law firms to do fellowships, especially when they realize how uncertain it is so if you are interested in doing a fellowship or perhaps a second fellowship , that market may be hot, or at least if you strike at on tenure track market you could try for that.
I suspect the huge drop off in the FAR over the last 5 years is the fact that many people are not willing to take the risk; 5 years ago a fellowship was almost a sure bet for a job; now, I know many fellows don’t end up getting jobs, especially those who are not geographically flexible, which is in many cases is prohibitive in normal market times, even more so now. Many schools also post ads, but it will be interesting in the end how many actually hire. Some may have had lines approved before the pandemic got real bad, and while they may be posting they don’t really end up hiring or schools realize how bad their financial situation is and they can’t get it approved.

WILPF continues its ongoing engagement in Syria, with the concerted aim of supporting the Syrian feminist movement, addressing the root causes of violence from a feminist lens, and mobilising for nonviolent action towards peace and justice for all. WILPF believes that how the transition from violent conflict into the process towards peace is designed, managed and effected will determine whether that peace can be sustainable.
This requires a process that is inclusive, participatory, and which seeks to understand and identify the nature of harm suffered by all different groups in the community, and secure appropriate and accessible mechanisms for redress and accountability. This process should be grounded in an understanding of what justice means to Syrians and how it can redress the transgressions on civil and economic rights that took place during the conflict.
The work done so far on transitional justice in Syria largely lacks context and gender-specific identification of harms that is the baseline for moving forward in an equitable and fair process. This has resulted in transitional justice strategies that failed to understand the gender dimension of wartime harms, as well as the violations of human rights of women and the disproportionate impact of conflict on them.
Although many women-led organisations have been working on engaging women and communities on violations they face, with a mix of service provision, economic and political empowerment, data collection and advocacy, they have been excluded from spaces where these strategies are developed and, when involved, their presence has been mainly tokenistic.

A digital collection featuring award-winning stories by twenty-five young women from across the five regions of Africa and its diaspora, it is the first ever feminist blog of its kind. Young African women were invited to share their contributions in writing, visuals, audio or video, presenting their thoughts and innovations in the face of COVID, as well as their daily struggles amid the evolving pandemic.
The winners were also awarded a USD cash prize each in recognition of their creative work. Menia pointed out that Sauti offers a platform to “amplify the voices” of young African feminists, drawing attention to the ways in which COVID is affecting their lives, but also to their actions and achievements in fighting this global health crisis.
This one was recommended to Carrie and she really enjoyed it, giving the book an A- :. I enjoyed the way this book both used and subverted Beauty and the Beast tropes. Bawdy Bookworms is currently celebrating their fifth anniversary congratulations!! Today my guest is award-winning author Alexis Daria. We talk about a little of everything, including graphic design, art, typography, languages, writing, planning, journaling, and of course, her new book, You Had Me at Hola.
We also discuss how writing contemporary romance is changing given, well, the contemporary landscape. Shana reviewed this one and gave it a B :. A Cowboy to Remember was an enjoyable read, but left me with the type of disappointment that only happens when your expectations are very high. Still, this is a low angst, and frequently funny romance that allows readers to get their cowboy fix without traveling to a red state. If you like gritty, feminist retellings of fairy tales then be sure to try Flyaway, a loose retelling of several fairy tales set in Australia.
