Dolly Haas as Pat Caverley in Girls Will Be Boys [d: Marcel Varnel, 1934]

This is in no way the English version of the previous year’s German Viktor und Viktoria, (it doesn’t have the knowing sophistication of that film’s genderswapping, for a start, although the ‘reveal’ scene is not at all coy) or the following year’s American Sylvia Scarlett (how I love the mid-30s trend for women dressing as men) but it’s a lovely little comedy, has Esmond Knight at his dark-eyed thick-haired swooniest as the romantic interest, and Dolly Haas is bloody marvellous as Pat; adorable, boyish, bolshy and delivers my menswear trifecta of tweed/dressing gown/chunky knit, with bonus evening wear.   

Oh, hello! Looks like I have a film to track down…

"There’s the three “men of Middle Eastern appearance” who were detained by police at a football match because someone thought the way they were checking their phones was “suspicious”.



There’s the Muslim guy who was detained by the cops for filming in the Melbourne CBD (read his account over the The Drum if you read nothing else; it’s mildly terrifying).
There’s that mosque in far north Queensland that was vandalised, that mosque in Brisbane that was vandalised, those Muslim ladies in Queensland being told to “fuck off back to your own country” and having coffee thrown on them, and that carload of white guys on the Gold Coast who threatened to behead a brown person in the street because they thought he was Muslim (seriously, Queensland, you are not covering yourself in glory on this one).
There’s the guy who walked into an Islamic school in Sydney armed with a knife, forcing children to be locked inside their classrooms and hide under their desks.
There’s the spat-upon mum, the kicked baby’s pram, the vandalised car and the pig’s head on a spike — the pig’s head on a spike — that have been reported in WA. There’s the rape and death threats being made against Muslim women, and the indifference it’s been met with.”

Portraits challenge what it means to be LGBT

These are just some of the many ways members of the LGBT community identify themselves in a beautiful photo series from San Francisco-based photographer Sarah Deragon.

Deragon’s “The Identity Project” has taken her around the country as she “seeks to explore the labels we choose to identify with when defining our gender and sexuality.” Her portraits show the amazing diversity and vibance of a queer community that for too long has been defined by outsiders.

Back to the week and back to posts about women.
This image is of a painting called Judith Slaying Holofernes by Artemisia Gentileschi. Gentileschi was an Italian Baroque Painter who lived from around 1593 to 1656 and became the first woman to be accepted as a member of the Accademia di Arte del Disegno, a renowned art academy in Florence.
This piece depicts Judith’s murder of Holofernes, a general sent to kill all the Jews. Judith, overhearing this story, decides to come into favor with Holofernes with her beauty. After he gets very drunk, she beheads him and saves the Jewish people. 
Gentileschi was born into a painter’s family, and her artistic talents were cultivated and encouraged by her father. Her father was working together with another painter on a project, and he hired him to also be Gentileschi’s tutor. However, this painter Agostino Tassi raped Gentileschi at the age of 17, and her family only pressed charges after finding out that this tutor, Agostino Tassi, was not planning on marrying her and instead planned to steal some paintings from the family. He ended up serving one year in jail, but this experience marked a change for Gentileschi in her artistic styles.
Gentileschi is an innovator of artistic styles, one of the first feminist artists, and one of the first respected female artists. In her works, she displays liberated and free women, and her life has inspired novels, movies, and plays.

I’ve always loved this painting and felt that it sided with the women, and now I know why.

One of my favourite paintings and myths.  Look at how casually Judith is avoiding that blood spray getting on her clothes, how she’s pushed up her sleeves, how firmly and calmly she cuts.  Magnificent.


I was lucky enough to see this painting a few years ago. It is magnificent.
