WHO IS THE PHALLIC WOMAN?

LOUISE BOURGEOIS

Is Louise Bourgeois smiling because she no longer has to envy the penis, now that she has one in her clutches. 


Louise Joséphine Bourgeois (French: 25 December 1911 – 31 May 2010) was a French-American artist. Although she is best known for her large-scale sculpture and installation art, Bourgeois was also a prolific painter and printmaker. She explored a variety of themes over the course of her long career including domesticity and the family, sexuality and the body, as well as death and the unconscious. These themes connect to events from her childhood which she considered to be a therapeutic process. Although Bourgeois exhibited with the Abstract Expressionists and her work has much in common with Surrealism and Feminist art, she was not formally affiliated with a particular artistic movement.

WHY ARE GIRLS ACTIVISTS?

WE WANT OUR FUTURE BACK: WHY GIRL ACTIVISTS ARE LEADING THE CLIMATE MOVEMENT.

According to “Women’s Agenda”…

The future used to be full of possibilities for young people. Now it scares us. Will we still have enjoyable summers? The wonders of the Great Barrier Reef and Amazon rainforest? Or will we suffer unbearable heat waves, famines and disasters?

Right now, we face a climate crisis and our future could go either way. But the people in power aren’t acting like there’s a crisis. That’s why young people around the world are mobilising on mass to take matters into their own hands.Why girls like Greta have stepped up to lead the climate movement. We’re advocating for the future because ‘those in charge’ have left it up to us.

Because the world is hurtling towards a future of catastrophic climate change. By 2030, the World Bank predicts extreme weather events and the devastating impacts on agriculture, health and labour, are predicted to push 100 million people back into poverty.

What’s more, girls and women are systematically excluded from climate change discussions and decision making around the world. In 2015, an IUCN report found women made up just 12% of the heads of 881 national environmental sector ministries.

Homeless people are dying on the streets of L.A. in record numbers.

Los Angeles Times

Living on the Streets, Dying on the Streets
The bodies are being found in virtually every corner of Los Angeles County: on sidewalks, along riverbeds, and in tents, parks, shelters, vehicles, motels and hospitals. On average, nearly three homeless people are dying every day — setting L.A. County on a record-setting pace to exceed 1,000 deaths this year, far higher than in the harsher climes of New York City. Columnist Steve Lopez explores the disturbing details and hits the streets to follow the case of one man who died Sunday on a West L.A. sidewalk: “You can call it a travesty. An emergency. A call to action. It is all those things.”
