After threats against her life, Anita Sarkeesian canceled an upcoming talk at Utah State University. Gamergate trolls are celebrating on Twitter while simultaneously dismissing the threats as nothing. Does this read like nothing to you?

➜ Time for U.S. to Support Abortion for Rape Victims in Other Countries

A 40-year-old law named for the arch-conservative senator who authored it, Jesse Helms of North Carolina, prohibits U.S. funding from supporting abortion “as a method of family planning” in foreign countries. But every administration since has interpreted it even more strictly, refusing to allow U.S. funds to pay for abortions even in the case of incest, rape, and life endangerment. Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Action, is urging the Obama administration to end that ban — now. 

➜ Of Gamers, Gates, and Disco Demolition: The Roots of Reactionary Rage - The Daily Beast

I’m not scared of desperately uncool cultural reactionaries like Jack Thompson or anti-witchcraft Harry Potter burners. I’m scared of the people who do hold cultural power, who have the loud voice, who are, in fact, the cool kids, but think they’re embattled underdogs. I’m scared of the people who think that because disco was “taking over music” they had the right to “fight back” bullying and attacking disco performers and fans.

Can’t believe we neglected to wish everyone a happy Ada Lovelace Day yesterday! 
Ada Lovelace was a female mathematician born in 1815 who worked with Charles Babbage on one of the earliest computers.
Of particular interest to us at the Feminist Press, she was an accomplished science writer- she wrote explanations for how the innovative machine worked and indeed how to program the early computer. Science writing is its own talent, and she proved her abilities and in-depth analytic understanding through her writing. 
She proves women have long been making important strides in STEM fields like mathematics and computer programming. And yet still women in science are rarely acknowledged or encouraged. 
Come discuss modern day issues for women in science at our FREE event, STEMinism, next Thursday! Register here!

"Failure is not an option"
Alyssa Carson, 13, is determined to be the first person to land on Mars.
This is more than wishful thinking - Nasa thinks she has a chance and she’s already in training.

Catcalling is not sweet or empowering. It’s harassment, with potentially deadly consequences.
