“Ne voit-on pas des industries péricliter entre des mains masculines et des entreprises devenir fructueuses gérées par des femmes ? Les féministes n’ont pas la sottise d’en conclure que les femmes seules sont aptes au commerce ! Quelle conception erronée, quelle orgueilleuse prétention permettent donc aux hommes de s’arroger le droit de dire : Cette fonction est notre domaine, cette carrière est notre propriété.”

Marguerite Durand*, Préface in Congrès International de la Condition & des Droits des Femmes, 5au 8 sept. 1900 à Paris, Arts et Manufactures, Paris, 1901.

(* Marguerite Charlotte Durand, 24/01/1864 - 16/03/1936, journaliste et féministe française fondatrice du journal La Fronde)


It’s hard to imagine the damage overfishing is wrecking on the oceans. The effects are literally invisible, hidden deep in the ocean. But there is data out there. And when you visualize it, the results are shocking.

This image shows the biomass of popularly-eaten fish in the North Atlantic Ocean in 1900 and in 2000. Popularly eaten fish include: bluefin tuna, cod, haddock, hake, halibut, herring, mackerel, pollock, salmon, sea trout, striped bass, sturgeon and turbot—many of which are now vulnerable or endangered.

Dr. Villy Christensen and his colleagues at the University Of British Columbia used ecosystem models, underwater terrain maps, fish catch records and statistical analysis to render the biomass of Atlantic fish at various points this century (see the study).

Is it worth it? (No)

don’t worry.  rich white men assure us that everything (that makes them rich) is fine.  when they run out of money or we all die, then we can start to worry.  we should just trust them.  they are very, very rich after all and they’re white.  that’s all we really need to know.
