Happy Halloween

Scare us all! Open thread for creepy stories and revoltingly sexist costume links (because strangely, we don’t see superheroes in costumes like this, at this time of year or any other). Alternatively, if you’re doing something kickarse for Halloween or Samhain, link here to your posts about it.

Reading roundup

The 45th Carnival of Feminists went up last week at Feminist Philosophers. Lots of good reading there, and below are links to some more great feminist reading that I’ve found in my feedreader this last week. I can’t read all the blogs out there, so obviously I miss great stuff. If you’ve read something insightful, […]

Feminism Friday Round-Up

As usual, not all of these posts have actually been tagged as Feminism Friday articles by their authors, but if a post appears to fit into the category I include it. Please add any other online articles you think fit the bill from the last few weeks in comments. Amanda Marcotte is out of the […]

Blog Against Sexual Violence Day

was April 5, and I missed announcing it here. Hopefully lots of you already found links to it elsewhere, and I’m sure that if there’s a post just hanging around inside you waiting to be written that it won’t matter if it’s a week late. Click on the image below to go to abyss2hope’s blog […]

Feminism Friday: Young Feminists

What with the continually alleged “death of feminism” in this “post-feminist” age, how are young women finding their way into feminism going about it?

FAQ: Aren’t you all just a bunch of "feminazis"?

The word “feminazi” is a false construction, a strawfeminist, created to scare people away from the juicy crops of equality, equity and the end of female subjugation. (See the “strawman” entry in the Logical Fallacies section at the Critical Thinking Website.) stealthbadger (Stealth Badger): A dudely introduction to feminism (utterly debunks the arguments made to […]

Friday Open Thread: Favourite Feminist Music

Please add your favourite performers/songs/musicals/operas in comments. Especially keen for an international sampling outside the Western mainstream hit parade. If you’ve written a review on any of them, please add the link.

FAQ: What can feminism do for me?

You will find that you are not alone in thinking something is disturbing and unjust with the way that society deals with gender. my first encounter with feminist writing reassured me that i wasn’t insane, and that amongst other things, it was in fact normal to be bothered by violence and misogyny.
