Selfless Signal-Boosting Wednesday

A complement to our long-standing Shameless Self-Promotion Sundays, this thread is for links to pieces on other people’s blogs that you have found memorable/provoking recently.  Please save the self-promotion links for this Sunday – use this thread to let Feministe readers know about the other blogs you love to read.


  1. Ensure other readers have enough information about the post to make an informed choice on whether to click on your link. Content notes are advised for posts discussing problematic issues/incidents that might be NSFW or potentially distressing/triggering.
  2. Keep this thread focussed on the linking – the idea is to make your comments on the other blogs being linked! If you feel you must discuss it here, please take it to the Open or Spillover threads, depending on your assessment of its zombie stoush potential.

    I recently found Athena Andreadis’ blog here. It’s excellent! I’ve also read the book of short stories she edited titled ‘The Other Half of the Sky’, and strongly recommend it as well.

    I am have been following Jade’s work for a while now, but this blog piece reflecting on the start of her own journey is a particularly beautiful piece about redefining women’s beauty.

    I count on Echidne of the Snakes for consistent, well-informed commentary on the issues. This post of her’s raises the alarm for all of use concerned about our right to vote-

  6. The nasty trashing of Rachel Jeantel (prosecution witness in Zimmerman murder trial) has been openly racist, sexist, fatophobic and in general, utterly infuriating.

    Some writers who have nailed it:

    Support #RachelJeantel!

    (Trigger warnings for the stuff I mentioned above, including the murder of Trayvon Martin, which is highly disturbing all by itself)
