“MeToo” was originally phrased/used as a slogan by Tarana Burke in 2006 to raise awareness against sexual violence against women. However, it wasn’t until October 15, 2017 that the slogan/phrase/hashtag became known globally. In the aftermath of the Weinstein affair Millano tweeted “If you’ve been sexually harassed or assaulted write ‘me too’ as a reply to this tweet.“ In less than 24 hours tens of thousands of people replied to her tweet.

RSA Panel: The Female Body as Text in Renaissance Literature

As the Renaissance saw a rise in female literacy and texts addressed to women readers, the relationship between gender and genre was foregrounded in debates about the appropriate texts for women to read – or if it was appropriate for women to read at all.  These conversations particularly centered on the genre of romance, simultaneously a genre classed as feminine and a genre deemed morally inappropriate for women to read. While these debates raged outside literary texts, within the texts themselves, we see women reading and women as objects to be read – both by the reader of the text and by other characters within the text. How does the female body serve as a text within a text?

Marginalized Style: Studying Fashion from Below to Promote Liberation

 

In Beyonce Knowles-Carter’s 2016 single “Formation,” the artist highlights her southern, black heritage to the black diasporic history that went into the making of her racial and ethnic background. As Beyonce proudly announces her racial identity, in the same stanza, she articulates that identity through the lens of fashion. She feels “so reckless when I rock my Givenchy dress (stylin')/ I'm so possessive so I rock his Roc necklaces.” The references to the French designer Givenchy and her husband’s jewelry collection demonstrates how Beyonce frames her understanding of her black heritage through her attire.
