Selfless Signal-Boosting Wednesday

A complement to our long-standing Shameless Self-Promotion Sundays, this thread is for recommending someone else‘s writings/events.

Especially welcome are links to 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 (seconding/thirding etc is fine, but keep it short and sweet) ~ analytical discussions about various links 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)

    She hardly needs signal-boosting from the likes of me, but Libby Anne over at Love, Joy, Feminism has written a disturbing and eye-opening piece on the practice and glorification of child marriage among fundamentalist homeschooling Christians. Yes, in the United States.

    I think Feministe should consider cross-posting this or inviting Libby Anne to write an expanded piece for those less familiar with that culture. Just my $0.02.

    From Lana Hobbs The Brave, who blogs about being raised inside the fundamentalist community, a wonderful post on what that’s like: “Raised to be a Wife.”

    My brothers are doing a podcast of the 37 year long love letter/journal their mother wrote to them. They’ve never read the entire letter before, so I don’t know what will happen in the future (it’s not my mother), but the story begins in 1974, when Kendra is 16, married, and two days overdue:
