Amazons Das Rad der Zeit: Endlich Diversity in einer Fantasy-Serie

Gerade sind alle Augen auf Amazons Das Rad der Zeit gerichtet. Zum Teil, weil die Serie als neues Game of Thrones gilt, und auch, weil es die aufwendigste Serie ist, die Amazon je produziert hat – vor allem aber, weil die Hauptrollen (im Gegensatz zu anderen Fantasy-Shows!) divers besetzt sind. Diverses Casting in Fantasy-Serien lässt noch immer mehr auf sich warten als in anderen Genres; echte Repräsentation sucht man vielerorts vergebens. Verglichen mit den beinahe ausschließlich weißen Darste...

The Far Right Needs To Stop Calling Parkland Students Nazis

Simply put, they are young people who have experienced great trauma and loss that refuse to let gun violence continue to affect others the way it did them. These teens turned tragedy into an international conversation, but resistance to their message in the form of anti-Semitic and Nazi comparisons has made its way to the surface both online ...

The Unique Sexual Harassment Problem Female Prison Workers Face

The sexual harassment began in 1994, Paula Purdy says, shortly after she started work as a corrections officer at the Denver County Jail. Colleagues made demeaning comments about her body. One male captain made her so uncomfortable she avoided him. But the worst abuse came from inmates, who would make sexual remarks and masturbate at her as she did rounds in their housing areas. Purdy says she reported the behavior to her bosses, but there were few consequences. “I would get emotional at work s...

Why Are Misbehaving Rich People TV-Ratings Gold?

There's the one percent and there's the one percent of the one percent. This is a story about the latter. They only fly private, wouldn’t think twice about dropping $2,000 for a pizza covered in 24-karat gold, and put deposits on a casual chance at space travel. In recent years, they have become not just real-life people about whom we occasionally hear astounding stories but also the captivating characters who dominate our television screens.

Why Our Student Council Presidents Are Women, But Our Politicians Are Not

Rini Sampath was the first woman to run for student body president at the University of Southern California in a decade. It was a big deal, and an even bigger deal that she won. Sampath was well aware of the glass ceiling she broke. But if you had asked her just two years prior, she would have shrugged it off.“It never even occurred to me in high school that gender was a barrier,” she says. “It was pretty equal in terms of involvement.”It wasn't just Sampath. George Washington University’s Exec...
