Sex, Seminaries and Wonder Woman's New Look

by contactus@ontheissuesmagazine.com

Don’t miss the new articles in The Café at On The Issues Magazine:

Pro-choice activists today need to take a lesson from second wave feminists of the 60s and 70s, writes Carol Downer in “A Blast From the Past Can Secure Abortion Rights.”

“We need women who have had abortions to share the story of their abortion. Sharing our stories not only helps us to integrate our abortion experience into our lives, but also informs others of the reality of abortion and lets other women know they're not alone.”

Donna Schaper is the senior minister at Judson Memorial Church in Greenwich Village. Schaper writes that public ministry differs from parochial ministry because those who practice and preach it attend to the community first and the parish second. Read more in “Taking Seminaries Outside of the Box.”

On the road, two indie bands, Mountain Man and Sleep Over, experiment with offering zines that preach sex positive messages for fans.

“The goal was to inspire and teach,” said one band member. Read more in “Indie Music Groups Share Sex Positivity.”

The Poet’s Eye at On The Issues Magazine features poems by Meena Alexander, Margaret Randall and Suheir Hammad on subjects like growing up different, sisterhood and war.

In The New York Times today, see the article on the updating of Wonder Woman’s costume. Art Editor Linda Stein wrote about Wonder Woman too, and had this to say about the new depiction:

“With her new makeover and costume, WW is still a male fantasy, and looks to me much more violent and cruel than she did in her 1940's persona.”
