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 (the links can be to older posts, just something you’ve found recently relevant).  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, especially those on the margins of the mainstream social justice communities, who tend to not get as much exposure as they should.


  1. Signal-boosting only here please ~ links you want to start a discussion on belong on the Open Thread or Spillover.
  2. Include content notes/trigger warnings/NSFW alerts where needed as a courtesy to other readers.
  3. Keep this thread focussed on the linking – the idea is to make your comments on the other blogs being linked!  (adding relevant links for further related reading is always welcome)

    A mathematical explanation of why women in tech experience more sexist incidents than men.

    The Petrie Multiplier was devised by Karen Petrie to explain why an attack on sexism is NOT an attack on men. This blog post explains it with some nice pictures/animations. (The mathematics applies to other minority groups too.)

    Mild content note for discussion of rape: So apparently someone at a high-profile news site wrote a piece about why college women shouldn’t drink alcohol (because that’s how you get yerself raped), which I will bother neither to read nor to link to, but here’s a good parody of it.

    Also, a post about why it matters when people misgender Chelsea Manning.

    “The Guardian Princesses” – Indiegogo campaign:

    The Guardian Princesses are leaders who protect people and other living beings. They are a group of racially and culturally diverse heroines who model compassion and intelligence, as well as the power of knowledge and collective action. Our stories move away from a focus on external beauty of the princesses, and emphasize what princesses can do for others.
