Weekly round-up and open thread: what we missed
Lynne Miles // 2 August 2010
Here’s just a handful of things we’ve noticed but not had time to post about this week. If you know of any more you want to let people know about, or just fancy a natter with fellow feminists, consider this an open thread for discussion.
- Cool feminist street art in NYC and LA by Yli Onassis – the artist has a facebook page here
- The network of radical libraries is being launched
- A cool Bidisha piece for the Guardian on casual sexism and misogyny
- Goodreads list of best young adult feminist fiction
- Geek Feminism on computer geeks and privilege
- It’s Filament magazine‘s first birthday!
- Charlotte Cooper on Public Health Minister Anne Milton inverting debates about language in fat activism
- Evidence on how the UK Film Council has systematically failed to fund films by black and ethnic minority film-makers
- Where are all the lesbians?
- Genderlicious: “I believe that I can support you, but also support people who hate you”—On the Michigan Womyn’s Music Festival. Note: the full text of Annie Danger’s open letter is up at Monica’s
- On Facebook deleting feminist sexuality pages
- Implied consent: women can be stripped if they’re dancing at a bar
- Want more skeptical atheist women? Defend us!
- The 2010 Pink List
- Fawcett Society in legal challenge to ‘unfair’ Budget
- Papua New Guinea apologises for CEDAW record
- and finally…. a critique of last night’s Sherlock
Phew! You see, we miss a LOT. We don’t mean to, and in an ideal world we’d love to write about every single one of these, but in the imperfect present we’ve decided the least we can do is a round-up and shout out to all the cool stuff going on. If you know of more, tell F-worders in the comments. Thanks!
