Bristol Misogyny Watch

Bristol Misogyny Watch - it's a bit like Autumnwatch but for misogynist behaviour in the media and at the Council in the Bristol area; anyone or any organisation who should know better in fact.

Yes, it's 2010. Yes, we all hoped that those dinosaur attitudes would have been long gone by now but it seems that they are alive and kicking in Bristol still.

This blog will record incidents of misogyny or sexism or discrimination in the media and at the Council. It's not slander. It's just how it is. Unfortunately.

Please let us know if you spot any misogynist behaviour that you'd like recorded on the blog.

International End Violence Against Women Day - or should that be: International End Violence Against People Day?

The United Nations had designated the 25th November 2010 International End Violence Against Women Day.

However, two Lib Dem councillors at Bristol City Council believe that it's discriminatory to have an EVAW day.

They visited the Council's EVAW photocall.  One councillor refused to look at the artwork on display because it had been put together at workshops for female survivors.

Both councillors have been asked to issue an apology but none has been forthcoming as yet.
