This essay analyzes how traditional notions of family are "queered" in contemporary memoir. I explore how heterosexual coupling becomes unnatural, undermining its equation with reproduction-and even the predictable forward march of family time becomes circular, haunted by alternate kinship models. I refer to this dynamic as "akin to kin" to consider how these representations both approximate and depart from normative ideas of family. I analyze several contemporary family memoirs to tease out moments in which "family" is imagined otherwise through queer relationalities.

Family is an important issue in imagining queer modes of existence. In this essay, I argue for a queer relationality that is structured around biogenetic family, a site that is often marginalized and negated in dominant Euro-American queer discourse. Informed by queer of color critique and postcolonial feminism, this essay affirms the relational framework in understanding the everyday struggles of queer subjects. Situated in the context of Chinese society, I investigate a queer relationality that centers ambivalence and inbetweenness as queer modes of positioning, challenging the teleological narrative of queerness that is characterized by oppositionality, singularity, and anti-relationality.

Each of us leaves a trace of our consumption on the environment. Take a step back, though, and consider how much influence people have had on the Earth. The Anthropocene, sometimes known as the era of humans, refers to how significantly we have changed the Earth's systems. This is the grand view of humanity's impact on the Earth. In this article, we plan to introduce and explain ecofeminism. Because of the natural connection with nature and the social role as housekeepers, women often have empathetic power when expressing their demands for the public environment, thus becoming a vital force in public environmental protection. Facing the public environmental forces spurting from ecofeminism, we study the dissemination of ecofeminism with the help of mass media. However, in present-day China, as pointed out by ecofeminism, the predatory exploitation of nature and the catastrophic killing of plants and animals make the fate of women challenging to control. Therefore, we study the theory of multicultural ecofeminism and public environmental protection. Finally, based on the integration of ecofeminism and the public environment, we interpret Lawrence's famous work, Sons and Lovers, and analyze the relationship between men and women and the public environment in this work from the perspective of ecofeminism. In human socialization, ecofeminism has provided strong support for protecting the public environment, and at the same time, it has also improved.

Drawing on insights from feminist epistemology and experience in genomics-related bioethics research, this essay offers three suggestions that may enable bioethics to contribute more persuasively to urgent issues affecting the health and well-being of individuals, communities, and the world they inhabit. First, it suggests that bioethics pay more attention to people's feelings, particularly those that help constitute their self-identities, and to the role of those feelings in their health-relevant behaviors. Further, it proposes conceiving of health-relevant behaviors expansively. Second, it suggests that bioethics advocate for a longer time horizon for the conduct of empirical bioethics research and other types of research addressing complex, systemic factors influencing health. Third, it suggests that bioethics play a larger role in illuminating and applauding the evolving nature of scientific knowledge.

This paper reports findings from a project that aimed to generate new feminist visions of later life, inspired directly by Sandberg and Marshall's paper 'Queering Aging Futures' (Sandberg & Marshall, 2017). Creative workshops with groups of self-identified feminists led to the generation of a range of artefacts exploring personal visions of a good feminist old age. This paper firstly considers the features that participants most frequently imagined - which were independence, social connection, pleasurable encounters with water, and good health - here treating feminism as a participants' resource explored through inductive analysis. The paper then explores the extent to which participants were able to imagine good feminist old age beyond the normativities of 'successful ageing', using a more deductive style of analysis drawing on feminist theory and feminist gerontology. Several participants imagined powerful and agentic old women who resisted the idea of older women's powerlessness. Some imagined new emotional and psychological foci for later life, clearly distinct from those of mid-life. Others imagined future physical decline and ways of embracing or overcoming it. Finally, drawing on feminist theory about the need to be reflexive and accountable in knowledge production, the paper concludes with consideration of the researcher's own imagined feminist old age and feminist history, and the implications this might have for the analysis presented.

Intimate Karaoke, Live at Uterine Concert Hall (IK-UCH) is a performance-based sound installation that examines vulnerability and shared intimacy through the site of my body by inviting audiences to sing their favourite karaoke song into my uterus while other audience members listen via stethoscope through my flesh. This article uses this project as a case study to examine the queering of the uterus as a site of production (not reproduction) and recoups the perceived uselessness of my middle-aging queer female body. This work connects to Linn Sandberg and Barbara Marshall's critique of the "problematic ways that aging and imagined futures are intertwined with heteronormativity in contemporary Western cultures" and how "some aging bodies and subjectivities are understood as desirable and taken-for-granted while others are constructed as unwanted and problematic" in their article, "Queering Aging Futures" (2). To make the body, vagina, cervix, and uterus structural materials for a venue is to renovate their functions outside of the logics of cisheteropatriarchy and reproductive futurity and further trouble mainstream perceptions of aging. I challenge heterocentric human reproduction as a marker of successful aging and as evidence of 'living a good life' by presenting queer feminist performance-based practices that centre my nonreproductive body as site for art production, presentation, and consumption.

Reproductive and sexual health policies have long mobilised religious and political forces. In this interview conducted in September of 2021, Brazilian feminist activist and researcher Sonia Corrêa guides us through a genealogy of anti-gender politics showing how they have been grounded in carefully crafted discourses about rights and gender that hinge on interpretations of the 'original' intent as ascribed in 'founding' documents such as the bible. In her overview of the transnational connections and ramifications of anti-gender politics, Corrêa provides a critical analysis of their geopolitical connections and the disastrous effects they've had on sexual, reproductive and social rights. In highlighting the problems with naming anti-gender politics as 'anti-rights' and dismissing the strength and complexity of the forces behind them, Corrêa alerts us to the depth of their roots and urgent need for a shift in strategy to fight them.

El presente artículo tiene el propósito de reflexionar sobre un reciente caso de triple filiación desde el nacimiento en Argentina que constituye una nueva forma de coparentalidad. Para ello, en primer lugar, realizo una descripción de los hechos y la sentencia. En segundo lugar, refiero que los feminismos y los movimientos por la diversidad han colaborado en comprensiones y prácticas más respetuosas y dinámicas de lainstitución familiar en clara oposición al neoconservadurismo. Luego planteo que la defensa de dicho dinamismo familiar fundado no debiera llevarnos a defender cualquier camino para la consecución del proyecto familiar, puntualmente en el caso de varones solos o en pareja. Por ello, diferencio los modos que usualmente tienen para alcanzar la paternidad con el objetivo de mostrar cómo la coparentalidad y la adopción son moralmente aceptables mientras que la subrogación del embarazo es cuestionable éticamente.(AU)

El present article té el propòsit de reflexionar sobre un recent cas de triple filiació des del naixement a l'Argentina que constitueix una nova forma de coparentalitat. Per a això, en primer lloc, realitzo una descripció dels fets i la sentència. En segon lloc, refereixo que els feminismes i els moviments per la diversitat han col·laborat en comprensions i pràctiques més respectuoses i dinàmiques de la institució familiar en clara oposició al neoconservadurisme. Després plantejo que la defensa d'aquest dinamisme familiar fundat no hagués de portar-nos a defensar qualsevol camí per a la consecució del projecte familiar, puntualment en el cas d'homes sols o en parella. Per això, diferencio les maneres que usualment tenen per a aconseguir la paternitat amb l'objectiu de mostrar com la coparentalitat i l'adopció són moralment acceptables mentre que la subrogació de l'embaràs és qüestionable èticament.(AU)

The purpose of this article is to analyze on a recent case of triple filiation from birth in Argentina, whichconstitutes a new form of co-parenting. In order to do so, firstly, I describe the facts and the judicial sentence. Secondly, I explain that feminisms and diversity movements have collaborated in more respectful and dynamic understandings and practices of the family institution in clear opposition to neoconservatism. Then I argue that the defense of such family dynamism should not lead us to defend any path for the achievement of the family project, especially in the case of single men or couples. Therefore, I differentiate the ways they usually have to achieve parenthood in order to show how co-parenting and adoption are morally acceptable while pregnancy surrogacy is ethically questionable.(AU)

Las corrientes intelectuales e ideológicas posthumanistasabogan por la superación de diferentes límites biológicos de la especie humana. La ruptura incluye los asuntos reproductivos, como estrategias para la supervivencia y como cuidado de una dignidad posthumana. En este trabajo, quiero esbozar cuestiones del trans y posthumanismo reproductivo interesado en la gestación subrogada (GS) en sus diferentes modalidades. La GS es relevante para reconducir la reproducción siguiendo criterios promotores de la elección individual. Comienzo subrayando la herencia liberalen el movimiento por la mejora humana y la elección procreativa. Después, sugiero que el posthumanismo reproductivo se apoya en los estudios de género y en la permisividad del comercio sexual para redefinir la GS como probable reproducción posthumana. Así, los objetivos del posthumanismo reproductivo ambicionan una agenda distinta a la feminista. Las perspectivas posthumanas y feministas proponen horizontes de justicia reproductiva que deberán criticarse en contexto antes de que los estados-nación procedancon reformas.(AU)

La ruptura inclou els assumptes reproductius, com a estratègies per a la supervivència i com a cura d'una dignitat posthumana. En aquest treball, vull esbossar qüestions del trans i posthumanisme reproductiu interessat en la gestació subrogada (GS) en les diferents modalitats. La GS és rellevant per reconduir la reproducció seguint criteris promotors de lelecció individual. Començo subratllant l'herència liberal en el moviment per la millora humana i l'elecció procreativa. Després, suggereixo que el posthumanisme reproductiu es recolza en els estudis de gènere i en la permissivitat del comerç sexual per redefinir la GS com a probable reproducció posthumana. Així, els objectius del posthumanisme reproductiu ambicionen una agenda diferent de la feminista. Les perspectives posthumanes i feministes proposen horitzons de justícia reproductiva que s'hauran de criticar en context abans que els estats nació procedeixin amb reformes.(AU)

Posthumanist intellectual and ideological currents advocate the overcoming of several biological limits of humankind. The rupture includes reproductive issues to care for posthuman dignity. In this work, I want to outline questions of trans and reproductive posthumanism interested in surrogacy in its different modalities. Gestational surrogacy is relevant to redirect reproduction following criteria that enhance individual choice. I begin by underliningthe liberal heritage in the social movement for human enhancement and procreative choice. Next, I suggest that surrogacy could be considered as likely posthuman reproduction by drawing on gender studies and the permissiveness of commercial sex. Thus, the reproductive posthumanist goals envision an agenda different from the feminist one. Posthuman and feminist perspectives propose horizons of reproductive justice that will need to be critiqued in context before nation-states proceed with reforms.(AU)

La donación de leche humana ha sido un tema infravalorado y muy sesgadamente examinado hasta hace relativamente poco tiempo, en relación comparativa con otros tipos de donación humana (órganos, tejidos, fluidos), no siendo reconocida su dimension de acto altruista y filantrópico corporal del mismo modo que otras realidades (medianamente) análogas, así como en su abordaje desde la perspectiva de los estudios feministas y de género. Por otro lado, aunque la pandemia de la COVID-19 y los diversos procesos de confinamiento han impactado onerosamente en la lactancia humana en general, encontramos datos sobre el incremento global de la donación lactante como gesto altruista específico durante la pandemia en España e, incluso, sobre las decisiones en los momentos más complicados del estado de alarma acerca de donar la propia leche en caso de muerte perinatal. Estas donaciones altruistas contribuyen a llevar a cabo el cumplimiento de lo que ya ha sido declarado como un derecho humano y una de las inversiones sociales con índice de costo-beneficio más ventajoso. La necesidad reconocida, recrudecida y amplificada en la pandemia, de los bancos de leche pone sobre el tapete de un modo específico la condición de la leche humana como recurso fisiológico de primer orden y, en definitiva, como bien global. Este artículo se dedica a profundizar en una hermenéutica crítica de la donación lactante a la luz de la pandemia y como oportunidad para repensar los estudios de las últimas décadas al respecto.(AU)

The human milk donation has been an undervalued and very biasedly examined subject until relatively recently, in comparison with other types of human donation (organs, tissues, fluids), not being recognized its dimension of bodily altruistic and philanthropic act in the same way as other (mildly) analogous realities, as well as in its approach from the perspective of feminist and gender studies. On the other hand, although the COVID-19 pandemic and the various lockdown processes have had an onerous impact on human breastfeeding in general, we find data on the global increase in breastfeeding donation as a specific altruistic gesture during the pandemic in Spain and, even, on the decisions in the most complicated moments of the state of alarm about donating one’s own milk in the tragedy of perinatal death. These altruistic donations contribute to carrying out the fulfillment of what has already been declared a human right and one of the social investments with the most advantageous cost-benefit index. The recognized, intensified and amplified need for milk banks in a pandemic brings to the fore in a specific way the condition of human milk as capital physiological resource, and, ultimately, as a global good. This article is dedicated to delving into a critical hermeneutics of milk donation in light of the pandemic and as an opportunity to rethink the studies of recent decades in this regard.(AU)

BACKGROUND: People of African Nova Scotian (ANS) ancestry are a culturally distinct group who experience numerous socioeconomic inequities and health disparities, secondary to structural and social determinants of health. Understanding the experiences of ANS health practitioners is important in addressing anti-Black racism in health care. We sought to critically examine the leadership experiences of ANS nurses in health care practice. METHODS: We used Black feminist theory to guide this qualitative study. We conducted 1-on-1 semistructured telephone interviews with ANS nurses and analyzed interview transcripts using Critical Discourse Analysis. RESULTS: We interviewed 18 nurses of ANS ancestry. We conceptualized study findings in 3 overarching areas: People of ANS ancestry as a distinct people, institution of care, and leadership philosophy and practice. Each area, and its corresponding themes and subthemes, illustrated an emergent understanding of factors that influence leadership among ANS nurses, such as socialization, early exposure to care and diversity in health care. Participants perceived and practised leadership in a manner that transcended formal titles or designations. INTERPRETATION: African Nova Scotian ancestry is implicated in the perception and practice of leadership among ANS nurses, who considered leadership to be a fundamental component of nursing practice that was grounded in community-oriented care. This study provides new insights that could inform recruitment, retention and representation of ANS people in nursing and other health professions.

Sex work and violence have become co-constituted, routinized, and even sanitized in Global Health journals dispassionately advocating for intervention. This paper situates ethnographically shared experiences of Kenyan sex working women within the global condition of antiblackness. By grounding our conceptual analytic in Black Feminist scholarship, we illustrate how antiblackness subtends the conditions of possibility for women's entry into sex work, their subsequent experiences with interpersonal and institutional forms of predatory violence, and lack of recourse for their material needs and suffering. This analysis requires a meditation on the relationships between the types of violence conditioning Kenyan women's lives and the limitations of Global Health's conceptual logics and disciplinary practice. Our discussion reflects on the ways Global Health practice can neglect conceptual foundations in antiblackness, thus complicit in upholding violence against the very groups it purports to assist. In charging Global Health "as usual" as methodologically violent and sustaining global antiblackness, we call for disciplinary transformations beginning from a shared consciousness regarding the ways global antiblackness structures health inequities. Beyond critique, our meditation is an invitation for all committed to dignified Global Health to contribute creative, non-hierarchically collaborative work engaged with those in material, structural, and immaterial need.

Theorists of the ethics and politics of care, with their feminist and intersectional analyses, have spent decades trying to leave their mark on clinical practice and political structures . In them, extensive processes of humanization of the relationship between professionals and people who need their care are required, without neglecting inequalities due to gender, social class or belonging to vulnerable minority groups that go through health and disease experiences in the community. society. It is evident that our institutions must be extensively rethought in their foundations; from nursing homes to highly technological ICUs; from the saturation of primary care to the lack of specialized personnel. In areas such as nursing, great emphasis is placed on models based on interdependence and the particular context to generate another care framework , while fighting for hierarchies and invisibilities related to highly feminized professions . Not surprisingly, the reflections that follow are signed by three women with hybrid profiles who have dedicated part of our working life to the field of primary and hospital care (both in nursing and in physiotherapy) and, in turn, to research and teaching in bioethics, philosophy and humanities. We have experienced in our flesh the contradictions between a will to serve and some axes of oppression connatural to the institutions.

Las teóricas de las éticas y políticas del cuidado, con sus análisis en clave feminista e interseccional, llevan décadas intentando dejar huella en la práctica clínica y en las estructuras políticas . En ellas, se requieren amplios procesos de humanización de la relación entre profesionales y personas que necesitan su atención, sin dejar de lado las desigualdades por motivos de género, clase social o pertenencia a colectivos vulnerables minoritarios que atraviesan las vivencias de salud y enfermedad en la sociedad. Es evidente que nuestras instituciones deben ser ampliamente repensadas en sus fundamentos; desde las residencias de ancianos a las UCI altamente tecnologizadas; desde la saturación de la atención primaria a la falta de personal especializado. En ámbitos como la enfermería se hace gran hincapié en los modelos basados en la interdependencia y el contexto particular para generar otro marco de asistencia , a la vez que se lucha por las jerarquías e invisibilidades relacionadas con las profesiones altamente feminizadas . No en vano las reflexiones que siguen las firman tres mujeres con perfiles híbridos que hemos dedicado parte de nuestra vida laboral al ámbito de la atención primaria y hospitalaria (tanto en enfermería como en fisioterapia) y, a su vez, a la investigación y la docencia en bioética, filosofía y humanidades. Hemos vivido en nuestras carnes las contradicciones entre una voluntad de servicio y unos ejes de opresión connaturales a las instituciones.

In recent years, women are acting all over the world against gender violence and femicide. This new wave of feminist claims is characterized by the intensive use of social media to spread consciousness and amplify influence. For this research, we analyse three femitags (i.e., feminist hashtags) from Twitter that have been relevant in different crucial mobilizations in Argentina, Spain, and Mexico. These are three hashtags with different functions for activism that have shown special relevance due to their continuity or their intensity in the Spanish-speaking area between 2015 and 2020 (before the confinement due to the COVID-19 pandemic). #NiUnaMenos (#NotASingleWomanLess) started in Argentina in 2015 and called to massive mobilizations on the streets. #Cuéntalo (#TellIt) was initiated in Spain in 2018 for sexual abuse disclosure. #NiUnaMas (#NotASingleWomanMore) trended in México around 2020 to denounce every new victim of rape or femicide. We analyse how those hashtags have spread in the Spanish-speaking region, what kind of social actors have been involved and what has been the role of opinion leaders. All data were collected with academic access to the Twitter API during December 2021. We have found that the most influential actors in the conversation are contingent and circumstantial, the leadership structure tends towards horizontality, and opinion leaders with large numbers of followers are only important in very specific moments. In all cases, femitags serve as a toolbox for action and build up an archive of grievances with a transnational dimension. Furthermore, all of them point out that structural violence against women leads to feminicide.1.

Drawing upon fieldwork data collected among young female bar-goers in China, we examine the gender politics manifested by their leisure activities and argue that these young women are pursuing individualism without feminism. By analyzing the act of bar hopping, we reveal the internal tension of individuation, which urges women to engage in gender labor in order to obtain preferential treatment regarding consumption and a competitive advantage in esthetic femininity. This indicates that the central axis of Chinese women's individualization is a hybrid of neoliberal individuals and essentialist gender roles. It encourages women to see themselves voluntarily as subordinate subjects in market transactions and feminized objects under male scrutiny. The pursuit of individualism without feminism prevents women from overcoming the highly gendered settings of bar scenarios, or imagining the female as a whole group with communal solidarity. The Chinese female individual manifests herself as a hostage of the collusion between the commodification of social life and a conservative gender regime. The case of China brings the individualization thesis out of its original compressed-modernity framework and indicates that East Asia's quest for modernity must address the compressed conditions of individualism and feminism simultaneously.

BACKGROUND: Emancipation and self-determination are critical elements of midwifery care and therefore should be explicit in midwifery education. If not, the woman-centred midwife with her trust in women and birth may become a thing of the past, and the patriarchal, technocratic medical model of maternity care, with its trust in machines and misguided interventions will continue to dominate childbearing practices. The optimal time for exposure to feminist principles within the midwifery educational journey, however, is unknown, despite recognition that teaching feminist theory and related concepts positively impacts the way students value women-centredness in midwifery practice. OBJECTIVE: To understand midwifery student's perspectives of assimilating feminist theory and midwifery philosophy. DESIGN: A qualitative approach using reflective journals was used to explore student midwives understanding of midwifery as a feminist profession. SETTING: One regional Australian University that teaches midwifery at two campuses, one of which straddles a state border. PARTICIPANTS: First session, first-year midwifery students undertaking a unit of study focusing on "what is midwifery" and how at its core, midwifery is a feminist emancipatory political discipline. METHODS: Data from weekly reflective journals were analysed to produce themes. FINDINGS: Three themes were identified 'Midwifery: Past and Present', 'What is this 'F' word? - feminism revisited', and 'Midwifery-feminism dyads'. These themes demonstrated transformative learning had occurred as participants appeared to value understanding feminism as the essence of midwifery philosophy early in their midwifery studies. CONCLUSION: Students embarking on their journey appear to value assimilation of feminist theory as a core tenet of midwifery philosophy. Feminist principles, particularly the protection of women's rights to informed choice, trusted relationships, dignity, and control throughout their childbearing journey appear to illustrate the emancipatory nature, and importance of, truly 'woman-centred, partnership-based midwifery care'. RECOMMENDATIONS FOR PRACTICE AND FURTHER RESEARCH: Whilst the findings of this study relate to midwifery students, the findings point to a need to explore ways to strengthen midwives' assimilation with feminist theory, and their ability to promote feminism and provide woman-centred, partnership-based approaches.
