Belated Weekend Roundup Roundup

Apologies, I’ve been trying to sleep away a headcold. Here’s some other people’s roundups of recommended reading this week.

Feministing’s Weekly Feminist Reader

Carnival of Radical Feminists – this is a bit later than planned, because Heart put so much work into setting the stage for what radfem is and isn’t and what radfems have achieved as she introduces the festival. Some thoughtprovoking reading about Women as a Colonized People, with specific areas of colonization highlighted. You don’t have to agree with every aspect of radfem theory to find the posts here highly valuable.

Lauren (Faux Real Tho): Things Your Mother Guilt Trips You Into Reading

Last week I missed the 22nd Carnival Against Sexual Violence and for a broader view of anti-oppression writing and activism, Blogging Against Disablism.

Feel free to use this post as an Open Mothers’ Day reading thread as well – any posts about Mothers’ Day that have a feminist or anti-feminist slant you want to highlight, leave a link in comments, please.
