New feminist group for Birmingham

// 6 March 2008

Birmingham readers: a new group has been set up to serve the city and surrounding area.

Birmingham Fems has a Yahoo! Group, a Facebook group and a blog.

I particularly enjoy this recent post on the blog (no prizes for guessing the result of the poll!)

Birmingham Fems lapdance poll

One of the group’s members is also responsible for the brilliant blog Brand New Feminist.

Thanks for posting this Jess! We know we are not the only feminists in Brum. We look forward to meeting new members who will help up put Birmingham on the feminist map!!!

Oh *blush* brilliant blog indeed, you don’t have flatter! Thanks so much for giving us this publicity. You will see on the blog that I have added our banner for the MWR march, its pretty good and I think we can sew the middle together so it just says Birmingham Feminists for future use!

Oh *blush* brilliant blog indeed, you don’t half flatter! Thank you so much for this publicity! There are definitely more and more of us coming out of the wood work and in the ‘lapdancing capital’ we really need West Mids women (and men!) to rise up together against the misogyny that litters our otherwise rich and cultural city! Apologies if you have three versions of this comment from me!
