On Our Radar: Feminist News Roundup
Happy Wednesday! Here's all the feminist news on our radar today.
• The Montana judge who won our Douchebag Decree last week for his victim-blaming comments has ordered a new sentencing hearing in the case in the trial of a teacher who raped a 14-year-old student. [RH Reality Check]
• Stories about the increasing trend of stay-at-home dads may have overhyped the situation—stay-at-home dads still occur in less than one percent of all married couples with young kids. [The Atlantic]
• Speaking of appreciating the labor that goes into child-rearing, a Nicaraguan co-op is paying parents for domestic work. [Autostraddle]
• Isreal has a sex-ed problem: The state is removing chapters on contraception and reproduction from the textbooks of religious junior high schools. [Feministing]
• Pennsylvania has a ban on same-sex marriage, but that's not stopping one county clerk from writing marriage licenses for queer couples anyway. [Mother Jones]
• Horrible history time! Until 1926, Oregon's constitution specifically excluded black people from the state. A new article looks at how racial exclusion laws affected black Americans' lives. [Oregon Humanities]
• Actress Azie Mira Dungey spent time playing a slave at George Washington's historic plantation. Now she's turned the ridiculous questions tourists asked her into a pretty funny web series: "Ask a Slave." [Jezebel]
