I’m wondering if you could help me out here? I’m doing a write-up on feminist blogs and online communities for this year’s edition of the university’s women’s magazine which includes listing and profiling some blogs/sites. I’m also putting in a section on why feminist and women’s only spaces are relevant and valuable.
- What do consider to be a “feminist blog”? Does it have to be predominately about women’s issues or can it simply be feminist-friendly? Do sites devoted to things like fat activism count?
- Why do you read feminist blogs? What do you get out of them and why do you consider them valuable?
- Do you perceive any deficiencies in online feminist communities?
- And the fun part: recommend me some sites! I read about 15-20 feminist/feminist-friendly blogs on a daily basis but a need more, and a more diverse range of sites to profile. I’d like to be able to list a couple of blogs representing: women and technology (inc. geek culture), women and pop culture, gay activism, racial equality (particularly indigenous Australians), disability activism, fat activism, women-centered news sites, religion and atheism and especially Australian blogs.
