One Billion Rising Against Anti-Female Violence

February 15th, 2013

Scoobies, in case you didn’t know, February 14, 2013, was the day of #OneBillionRising against violence against women. Flash mobs gathered throughout the world to dance for the occasion. Buffy the Vampire Slayer Online founder Samuel Scott happened to be in Jerusalem and snapped these photos of the flash mob there. (Small, but encouraging!) While this is not exactly related to “Buffy,” he thought the show’s fans would like the mention of female empowerment! See onebillionrising.org for more information, and see our Facebook page post as well!

The entertainment industry, just like any other business, has one goal in mind: to maximize profits. In the late 1960s, the music companies did not find and promote bands that played protest folk and rock music out of a desire (depending on your point of view) to do good and help the United States. The firms produced and marketed the music because they knew that the songs would sell well because… Continue reading

Buffy Summers, of course, was not the first vampire hunter (or slayer) in folklore and history (whether in fiction or reality). But she is the latest archetype in a centuries-old mythology that spans Balkan stories, medieval persecutors, and British writers. In this essay, I argue that the qualities of vampire hunters have remained generally consistent despite the variety of mediums and stories that… Continue reading
