Women Who Own Nice Belts

July 17th, 2008

A piece on Salon this morning called Cracking Code Pink featured a number of criticisms of the women’s anti-war organization (that, I confess, I’m doing a little work with) that were on target and worth some in-depth discussion. But I’m a bit dismayed by the writer’s continued assertion that poor fashion is a reasonable excuse […]

The National Conference on Media Reform is in Minneapolis this weekend, and I’m all over it (with several fellow WIMN’s Voices Bloggers!) Come say hi, or if you’re not going to the conference, stop by Arise! bookstore on Sunday night for a Foundation For Freedom PowerPoint Presentation (FFFPPP).
June 7: Panel Discussion: There Is No Media […]

April 22nd, 2008

I occasionally grow tired of theorizing about corporate culture and cataloguing its public if hilarious malfeasances committed in the name of publicity—I mean,who reads that stuff?—and so, on Thursday, April 17, I started a new project with the Anti-Advertising Agency’s Steve Lambert called the Anti-Advertising Agency Foundation For Freedom. It’s a not-for-profit charitable arm of […]

No Need to Exaggerate, CNN: The Facts Are Bad Enough

amoores Icon Posted by Anne Elizabeth Moore

April 8th, 2008

Considering the recent death of Dith Pran in a New Brunswick hospital of pancreatic cancer, Christine Amanpour’s recent CNN report on the Cambodian genocide is concerning. She quotes two numbers at the end of the piece—14,000 deaths at Tuol Sleng, formerly known as the prison S-21, and 2 million dead under the Khmer Rouge regime’s […]

New tactic, new column

amoores Icon Posted by Anne Elizabeth Moore

April 1st, 2008

As pop culture fuses more and more with advertising—despite that I’m devoting all my available skills to holding that line—I’m finding myself increasingly frustrated at the infiltration of consumerism into all aspects of our lives. It’s a trend I’ve been blogging about (alongside Diane Farsetta and others) here on these very virtual pages. But sometimes […]

I know I should be psyched to go see Girls Rock: The Movie

amoores Icon Posted by Anne Elizabeth Moore

March 12th, 2008

But I’m just not.
I’m concerned that in all the hype over the proof! Finally! That girls can represent themselves on a musical stage, that we’re overlooking the fact that, once again, men here are doing the representing. But because it’s a film, in which the two male filmmakers do not appear, it’s easy to […]

Getting Girls Voices Out in Cambodia

amoores Icon Posted by Anne Elizabeth Moore

February 6th, 2008

Friends and reporters in the US asked frequently why I would pick up and go to Cambodia after the long-running magazine I co-published and edited for three years in Chicago folded last summer. My book on the problems plaguing independent media in North America was just released, too—Unmarketable—and I cut touring with it short to, […]

Happy Merry Christmas

December 24th, 2007

Christmas has finally arrived in Phnom Penh, or will tonight at midnight, and I’m living with 32 smart Khmer young women attending college for the first time, set to become the first generation of women leaders in Cambodia. Tonight we will celebrate. They like Christmas because Christmas is the present holiday; I like it because […]

The Baby, The Bathwater

amoores Icon Posted by Anne Elizabeth Moore

October 22nd, 2007

I went to the NAMAC conference this weekend, which I describe elsewhere and was insanely fun, but for days, one of the questions from the audience after the panel I was on was stuck in my craw.
The issue pretty much revolved around the use of the phrase “not throwing the baby out with the […]
