We need you: to help us update our Resources

Hannah Mudge is taking on the tremendous task of updating our Resources section. In this post, she breaks down what the new Resources section will look like – and calls for your input in making it a useful and thorough compendium.

Hannah is a Cambridgeshire-based feminist who works in publishing by day and enjoys all things activism-related as well as running, reading and cooking. She blogs at We Mixed Our Drinks and tweets far too often as @boudledidge.

As part of The F-Word’s revamp, the site’s list of resources will be fully updated and revised. In the years since the resources pages were created, many new groups, sites and campaigns have sprung up – and sadly many others are no longer in existence. The F-Word hopes to provide a varied and accessible list of resources for feminists and that’s where you come in.

The new Resources section will be broken down into the following sub-headings:

  • Mailing lists and forums
  • Local and national feminist networks
  • Websites, organisations and charities (UK-based)
  • Websites, organisations and charities (International)
  • Campaigns
  • Blogs

If there’s a blog, group or campaign you think should be linked in the revamped Resources section, you can tell us about it by commenting on this post or contacting the collective directly via email. You could also make suggestions via The F-Word’s Facebook page or Tweet your recommendations @thefworduk. Letting us know about the places you’ve found helpful, the groups you’re a part of and the blogs you read will be a huge help to all The F-Word’s readers and will hopefully provide a wealth of information and ways to get connected into activism.

If your suggestions have a website, it would of course be most helpful to provide a link!

I would love it if you could include the Manchester Feminist Network.

Our facebook page is: http://www.facebook.com/#!/group.php?gid=111813245503764

We meet the second Saturday every month at Friends Meeting House, Mount Street in central Manchester.

Likewise a shout out to the Leeds Feminist Network would be great. We meet the second Thursday of the month at the Victoria Hotel on Great George Street, all women, men,self -identifying women and men, gender queer and intersex persons are more than welcome. Unfortunatly the pub does not allow children.

There is a facebook page, but I don’t use facebook so have no idea how to find it, but it should be fairly easy to figure out!

Thank you

I feel sad when I look at the old resources section as so many things no longer exist!

Maybe it would be best to focus on online resources (such as useful 101s) or major organisations rather than attempt to list all the UK feminist groups, as it might be duplicating what UK Feminista are doing?

Can the blogs only be British ones? Because there is an American one that I am a huge fan of- I Blame The Patriarchy.

Hannah // Posted 16 November 2010 at 3:29 pm

Catherine, that’s a good point! I’ll have a think.

Mica, no that’s absolutely fine. I Blame The Patriarchy is actually already listed in the current Resources section and it’s not a problem.

It would be great if you could add Women Speak Out: http://womenspeakoutuk.wordpress.com.

I look forward to seeing the Resources page when it’s done – should be good!
