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 delightful memorable/provoking recently, especially those who are blogging on issues Feministe has not recently addressed.  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. This is not a new Open thread – mainstream media/news links that you want to discuss should be taken there. This thread is for signal-boosting bloggers and ex-bloggers’ opinion/analysis pieces, not just journalistic reportage.
  2. 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.
  3. 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 at Feministe, please take it to the Open or Spillover threads (see sidebar for quicklinks), depending on your assessment of its zombie stoush potential.

    Not a blog, but an interesting video about the Council of Europe’s recent meeting held with regard to the media and sexism.

    Laura Bates, founder of the Everyday Sexism Project, is one of the people who speaks in it.

    It’s only around 7 minutes long.

    This has nothing to do with feminism, but for all the knitters who’ve ever found rows’n’rows later that they crossed a cable the wrong way … Yarn Harlot has a post with two methods for fixing it. It’s very clear and very funny. Sadly it’s from 2006, so comments are closed and I can’t thank her for saving me!
