A clever article on women's suffrage by +Madison Salters, prefaced by an interaction with protestors that actually happened to us -- we were /actually/ called cowards for not fighting in the trenches during the WWI.

You know. Because we were totally alive during said war. u_u

Check it out, share it around, start a discussion! ‪#‎WomenInFront‬, on the front at last? Hell yes.

-----------

Another stark truth is that, often, women's right to vote is spurred by crises and political stratagem, not fairness. This shifts the focus away from the work done by women’s movements, which often underpin the thought that revolutions are responsible for bringing suffrage to the forefront, but rarely manage to produce results on their own. (Again, it’s difficult to vote yourself in when you don’t have that right.) Notably, many central European countries gave limited suffrage to women after WWI, and complete suffrage after WWII—a narrative that gets swallowed up in the many political changes of the era.

Women’s right to vote has been panhandled by gainful politics for centuries[, going so far as to be packaged] as "vitally essential to the successful prosecution of this great war", and not a measure of simple equality.

Women’s suffrage also tends to ride on the coattails of revolution and serious calamity. [...] Sometimes, it is even an afterthought: in Switzerland, women only gained fully equitable local voting rights in 1990. In Saudia Arabia, international pressure made the government promise women a vote by 2009, and then again by 2011… it is currently slated for 2015, in a release schedule that even Marvel would even find confusing.

Leaving Paris for Tel Aviv in three days because my visa's run out! Looks like I'll be there during their Innovation Festival, so I'm excited to take a look at how another country -- and one with the biggest community outside the U.S. -- runs its tech startup community.

Anyone have recommendations for places to stay, go, be, do, et. al. in Israel in general, or wanna hang out if you're in the neighbourhood? I plan to be there for most/all of September only!

For Linguaphiles.
English speakers say, “It’s all Greek to me,” when they find something hard to understand. Shakespeare used the phrase in “Julius Caesar” (“Those that understood him smiled at one another and shook their heads; but for mine own part, it was Greek to me”). It’s also common in Spanish, where some people think it gave […]

"Professor Peter Cohen argues that human beings have a deep need to bond and form connections. It's how we get our satisfaction. If we can't connect with each other, we will connect with anything we can find -- the whirr of a roulette wheel or the prick of a syringe. He says we should stop talking about 'addiction' altogether, and instead call it 'bonding.' A heroin addict has bonded with heroin because she couldn't bond as fully with anything else.

"So the opposite of addiction is not sobriety. It is human connection.

"[...] Bruce Alexander -- the creator of Rat Park -- told me that for too long, we have talked exclusively about individual recovery from addiction. We need now to talk about social recovery -- how we all recover, together, from the sickness of isolation that is sinking on us like a thick fog."
