No Girls Allowed: File Sharing Culture and BitTorrent

Our buddy Anita over at has another great video up about how women are systematically left out of techno-geek culture.

Created for and originally posted at Bitch Magazine’s Mad World Virtual Symposium on July 20th, 2010

“It’s a boys club that’s reinforced socially and culturally. It creates a space that is so undesirable for women to be in that they don’t want to or they aren’t given the opportunity to participate.”

Vote for Feminist Remix Video for Webby Awards!

[youtube KKpSSCUrWqE]


“Did you get a chance to see “Buffy vs Edward: Twilight remixed“? It was recently nominated for a Webby! And it might be the only feminist anything that is nominated at all this year, which is why we think it’s so important that it wins the people’s choice award for best remix/mashup video! Currently it’s only in third place and it needs a big boost of votes to bring it to first.”

There are only a few days left (voting ends on April 29th) and it only takes a few minutes to vote on the Webby YouTube page:

For more information on the creator:

Read an article from Jonathan McIntosh about why he made “Buffy vs Edward” at WIMN Voices where he discusses his pro-feminist interpretation of Twilight and also gives a big shout out to the vidding community which was a primary influence in making this video.

“How To Lose Your Virginity”

Film Info:

documentary-in-progress by Therese Shechter, director of the
award-winning and provocative I WAS A TEENAGE FEMINIST.

dogma and misconceptions, female virginity is something our
culture cares deeply about.

posted originally


A one night stand far from home goes terribly wrong. As the filmmaker unravels her experience, she decides to confront her attacker.

Told through a “sex-positive” lens, THE LINE is a 24 minute documentary about a young woman – the filmmaker- who is raped, but her story isn’t cut and dry. Not a “perfect victim,” the filmmaker confronts her attacker, recording the conversation with a hidden camera. Sex workers, survivors and activists discuss justice, accountability and today’s “rape culture.” The film asks the question: where is the line defining consent?  THE LINE was completed in July 2009.

I never intended to make a film about my sexual boundaries, or to involve myself in THE LINE.
