Woodhull Board Member Erica Jong wonders about motherhood as a prison for modern women in last Saturday’s Wall Street Journal:

“Unless you’ve been living on another planet, you know that we have endured an orgy of motherphilia for at least the last two decades. Movie stars proudly display their baby bumps, and the shiny magazines at the checkout counter never tire of describing the joys of celebrity parenthood. Bearing and rearing children has come to be seen as life’s greatest good. Never mind that there are now enough abandoned children on the planet to make breeding unnecessary. Professional narcissists like Angelina Jolie and Madonna want their own little replicas in addition to the African and Asian children that they collect to advertise their open-mindedness. Nannies are seldom photographed in these carefully arranged family scenes. We are to assume that all this baby-minding is painless, easy and cheap.”

Check out this months issue of BUST: the magazine for women with something to get off their chests. With an attitude that is fierce, funny, and proud to be female, BUST provides an uncensored view on the female experience. 

The issue features the following article on public speaking by Woodhull’s Tara Bracco!

Speak Easy: Say it Loud, Say it Proud, With These Speech-Giving Tips by Tara Bracco October/November 2010 BUST Magazine. Read Full Article Here

“If you were asked to give a speech to a roomful of people, could you do it? For lots of women, public speaking is scary stuff. But if you back away from the challenge, you may be missing out on things like impressing your boss with a killer presentation or giving a moving toast at your BFF’s wedding. Anyone can be a good public speaker, even if the thought makes your palms sweat and your heart pound. I know because over the past six years, I’ve traveled across the country with the Woodhull Institute for Ethical Leadership– a non-profit dedicated to professional development for women– teaching hundreds of mic-shy gals how to deliver a speech. The hardest part is saying yes when given the opportunity. ” Continue Reading Full Article Here

Center for Young Women's Development burns $100,000 check from Craigslist

After coming under fire from women’s organizations such as The Rebecca Project, which successfully pressured law enforcement, Attorney Generals from states across the country finally shut down Craigslist’s adult section. A victory for women and the power of women’s organizations: prostitution and sex trafficking was being advertised on the popular site out in the open as if it were no big deal and perfectly legal. Now its all been shut down! Hurray!

But is Craigslist’s “erotic services” section closing a real victory for women and victims of sex crimes?

No doubt it’s shocking that sex and sex with children was being sold blatantly on the internet– and shocking that no one seemed shocked– letting it all just go on for years like no one cared and it didn’t matter at all except to a few fanatic feminist organizations. Not only was Craigslist perpetuating child abuse and illegal activities, but the company was making 36 million dollars from its adult section.

But is shutting down Craigslist’s adult section really just shooting the messenger?
