Finally, A Feminism 101 Blog was started on Blogger.com in March 2006 and promptly put onto the backburner. It was resurrected in March 2007, and ported over to WordPress.com in May 2007.This blog is an information resource, for both feminists and those questioning feminism, concentrating on typically disruptive questions/assertions which frequently arise in online feminist discussions.

Q: Why no blogroll of feminist blogs?
A: Because there are links galore within the FAQs: you’ll find blogs that most interest you by clicking through on links in topics that interest you already.
Q: Why don’t you make it easier to find the FAQs?
A: Because it is actually quite easy if you read the introduction pages, which are there for a reason. If that’s just not you (but why not?), then you could look at the navigation tabs at the top of the header, or look at the Where To Start module in the right sidebar.
