Online Feminism: Long Range Weapon
Pregnancy in adolescence: lack of information? Autores: Cristiane Albuquerque C. Adolesc Saude. Abstract: Pregnancy in adolescence has been considered a problem of public health. This work intends to find the reasons that take an adolescent to get pregnant, in spite of the great amount of information. This article reviews the history of pregnancy in adolescence, the social changes, the familiar structure, and the elements that can take the adolescent to begin his sexual life, as well as the means from which he or she tries to get information about daily life, contraceptive methods and their implications. The data obtained in the bibliographical review show that adolescents have knowledge on contraceptive methods, however they do not know how to use them correctly. The pill and the condom appear as the most known ones. Adolescents very often deny the risk of getting pregnant due to the magical thinking characteristic of adolescence and to their psycho-emocional immaturity.

As an editor for a teen feminist magazine , I give interviews quite frequently. Not a surprise at all, considering the spotlight the term has received in media last couple of years. It was magazine theme, frequent topic in almost every interview with women, and object of a lot of discussions on the internet. This approach is also one short on creativity: it is not the first time — and probably not the last — that feminism goes under a media boom. Because it claims for equality, and is aimed at women, it gets visibility when topics regarding it get visibility. It is a reaction movement, so it is just natural that it gets the spotlight in media when the problems it faces also have the spotlight.
