Specter of sonic sexism looms

By Samantha Anne Carrillo [ Tue Nov 27 2012 1:15 PM ]

Sexism in the music industry is alive and well. But it’s almost 2013, you might say. We’re more than a half-century removed from the height of ’50s paternalism. Sadly, we’re not quite as distanced from the weaker-sex mentality as we’d like to think. Whether exploring industrial music, producing or music-related subcultures, misogyny still patiently waits to be acknowledged and abolished. We chatted with Burqueña noisemakers and aural curators about their experiences with sexism in our burg. Read all about it in Burqueñas Talk Musical Misogyny.

Military sexual assault numbers are shocking

By Marisa Demarco [ Fri May 18 2012 12:45 PM ]

Last week, I sat down with Yvette McClelland, a veteran who served in the Air Force for a decade. She worked as a telecommunications maintenance specialist. Her time in the military was fraught with sexism, harassment and assault. McClelland was raped three times by fellow service members, she says.

Many years later, she’s still working on handling the fallout. As part of an effort to draw attention to this systemic problem, she’s brought a movie to town. The Invisible War will screen at Guild Cinema today at 4, 6 and 8 p.m. and tomorrow at 12:30 p.m.

The 8 p.m. Friday and 12:30 p.m. Saturday screenings feature guest speakers Ariana and Ben Klay. They are suing the military after Ariana was assaulted while in the Marines.

The numbers are staggering. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta estimates that 19,000 people serving in the military were sexually assaulted last year, though only about 3,000 people reported it.

Though the Department of Defense is attempting to address the issue, McClelland points out what she thinks is the real problem: Sexual assault cases remain entirely within the military. The Stop Act, introduced in November, aims to create an independent body of civilian and military experts to investigate and prosecute those cases. McClelland says she hopes people will encourage their political representatives in Washington to support the bill.

Happy Women’s Day

By Marisa Demarco [ Thu Mar 8 2012 1:22 PM ]

Today is International Women’s Day, which coincides with Women’s History Month, observed in the U.S. in March. The theme this year, as declared by the United Nations, is “Empower Rural WomenEnd Hunger and Poverty.” But regional groups develop their own focal points.

In Albuquerque, there’s the Women & Creativity series, which unfolds over the course of the month. Tonight, Instituto Cervantes is presenting They Count, a documentary about women of African descent living in Brazil. It will screen at the National Hispanic Cultural Center’s Bank of America Theatre at 7 p.m.

The UNM Women’s Resource Center and Women Studies Department were supposed to celebrate their 40th anniversary today, too, but the festivities have been postponed.

International Women’s Day has been celebrated for 101 years, beginning in 1911 after German activist Clara Zetkin called for it at the International Conference of Working Women.

If you know of any other related events today, add them in the comment field below.
