The advocates of retaliatory wars will continue to assume a much simpler reality with their hoary oppositions: Religious and secular, backward and enlightened, free and unfree.

I don't go to things because I want to see violence, I go to things because I want to see them handled well.
Violence against women is real and something I feel passionately about, and the gateway to all that is wolf whistling.

For most women, Greenham was a place of principle, growth and song. Often joyful, sometimes terrifying, and almost always cold.

I love a good harsh horror movie, when it's done well. But there are times when it feels cynical.
