    Women's Autonomy and Sexual Sovereignty Movements

    Morgaine and Pseudo-Adrienne have started a new blog/site called Women's Autonomy and Sexual Sovereignty Movements. That's the splash page; read to the bottom to find the link to the blog. Morgaine explains a little of it thusly in What She Said! (emphasis added):
    Women's Autonomy is the best description I could come up with for a new wave of the women's movement. The tag line - The Third Wave just became a Tsunami - expresses the need for renewed energy feminists, and a deeper goal than just more opportunity and better pay. I want to see deep change in the way women are perceived. It's time for people to really "get it" - that women's rights ARE human rights, and we won't be an underclass when we are the majority. We are not property. We are people.

    The second issue, Sexual Sovereignty, involves a change in the way sexuality is perceived in this culture. I'm fed up with kowtowing to regressive attitudes about sex. If someone wants to practice some bastardized version of 2,000 year old scripture, that's fine for them, but I live in the 21st century. The mores of ancient tribes don't work for us in this culture - or any other, for that matter.
    I wish them luck with the project.
