I saw some sad news when I clicked on one of my favourite blogs yesterday. Bitch, PhD is closing down.
The signs were there. Posts from my favourite BPhD writers have been thin on the ground this year. This has been one of my go-to group blogs since 2004, and has been one of the feminist blogs which has helped me work out my own feminism.
It’s not too clear how long it will be up – the wording of that post suggests it’ll be pulled altogether – so go and read their archives, and enjoy that fabulous header image, while you can.
Here’s my favourite BPhD post. I’ve linked to it before for Blog for Choice day. It’s the best response I’ve ever seen to the nonsense that with “abortion on demand”, women will be “demanding” abortions on a mere whim. It’s especially relevant in Australia at the moment. Not that it addresses the specific case of Leach/Brennan, but you can bet that attempts to undermine womens’ reproductive choice will continue.
