Emily Brontë, feminism in the Victorian age

Women’s history in the domain of the arts and science, as well as in other domains, has been invisibilized since ancient times. The field of writing has also been a battle arena dominated by men.  Emily Brontë emerged, alongside her sisters, as one of the pillars of Victorian writing. The expansion of the feminist movement has been responsible for giving just recognition to many female figures that history and the patriarchy had tried to erase.

Clarice Lispector: The Brazilian Writer Who Challenged Established Structures

To understand Clarice Lispector is to take a leap; like every great leap, it is scary yet liberating.

Network, be awkward!

When you are a filmmaker your world is shaped by a peculiar set of circumstances. The very nature of the job is one of instability, projects that come and go, a calendar that will burn you out within a few days of intense work, then leave you with nothing at all and a sense that you will never get a job again and you might as well give up on the dream.

Once a year, though, all that’s thrown firmly out of the window as the ...

Veganism and Extreme Metal

Rosa Parks and the Bus Seat that Changed Everything

Rosa Parks is regarded as one of the most influential black figures in all of Black History due to how she was able to start the civil rights movement by simply refusing to give up her bus seat to a white passenger in Montgomery, Alabama.


In order to start talking about the origins of March 8, International Working Women’s Day, we must historically address, on its own, the women’s movement and how they were involved in the class struggle.

Simone de Beauvoir and a brief overview of her life ...

by Nuala Szler, translated by David Crowe “One is not born, but rather becomes, a woman” declared Simone de Beauvoir during the tumultuous 20th Century and couldn’t be heard. This is because Beauvoir asserted that femininity should not consider itself developed merely due to biology or organs, rather it should consider itself a social construction. Time has concluded that these were and are the fundamentals of the feminist struggle throughout the world.
