Tonight I was eating yogurt and drinking red wine, admiring the flickering flame of my tea leaf & honey scented soy candle. Then I set down my spoon and felt like an idiot, like some kind of ladyloser straight out of a Sarah Haskins skit (PS Sarah Haskins if you ever [for some godforsaken reason] read this, I’m your biggest fan).
Then, after validating a few lady stereotypes — namely that my life is lonely and filled only with Yoplait, a chalice-size wine glass and scented candles — I remembered that I have this thesis to write about feminism that’s due, well, kinda soon.
And I really need your help! I need to locate contemporary feminist blogs — even better if these blogs include criticism or response to mainstream women’s magazines (i.e., Jezebel-style posts about things like Photoshop editing gone awry in Elle).
I already follow Jezebel, The XX Factor, Feministe, and Feministing. If you know of any other good feminist blogs or publications — independent bloggers, magazines, underground newspapers — please respond here or shoot me an email. You will be compensated for your help with an over-sized glass of Franzia at my next Grrlz Night, where we’ll watch The Notebook. Thx!!!
(Seriously though, please get in touch if you have any recommendations).
