Feminist Link Round Up

I’ve been doing so much writing on our Australian domestic politics lately (we’re coming up to an election) that it’s crowded FAQ writing out of the schedule. My apologies. I hereby resolve to at least keep up to date on Round-up posts for you twice a week. Please treat this thread as a shameless spruiking opportunity for your own blogging – or to let us all know about a great post you just read – just leave a link and a brief topic description in the comments!

Some of these posts are full of information, some are fabulous rants, some are brief but pose important questions and some have fantastic comments threads. Some posts tick several of those boxes. Please think about leaving some comment love to encourage the authors on smaller blogs!

(N.B. Occasionally, some of these posts generate monster comments threads. It’s understandable to not want to wade through hundreds of comments, but usually reading at least the first 50 or so is illuminating.)

Now, on to the links:

  1. Inspired in part by this blog, I’ve put together a new Squidoo Lens called Advice for New Feminists (previously titled Feminism for Beginners). In addition to links to Feminist blogs, I’ve started a list of good feminist reads to start out with, t-shirts etc. I’d love for people to come by and check it out as well as to leave some advice for new feminists.

    (I’ve also done another lens called Relationship Advice that doesn’t Suck which may also be of interest to folks with a feminist bent.

  2. Thanks, Liz. Good luck with it.
