It’s that time of the month again, when the best feminist posts from Australia and New Zealand are in one place for your reading pleasure. Bluebec has done a wonderful job putting it all together:
I’m not going to poo on bluebec’s sandwich by linking to them here, but there are fabulous posts on bodies (eg: being a fat dancer; taking up space; periods) family and parenting (eg: poking fun at motherhood; economic theory and happiness; the flawed paid parental scheme), LGBTIQ (eg: beliefs and the rights of others; obnoxious pantos; queering twitter), personal stories (eg: having one of those days; not asking people about their love lives), politics (eg: Jones’ sewage politics; demonising people on welfare; international day for the decriminalisation of abortion), racism (eg: damning everyone with the actions of a few; taniwha and belief; when it’s not about you, your reaction says a lot), feminism (eg: Collective Shout and shaming; defending Catherine Deveny; discrimination in academia), media (eg: de-storying the joint; Doctor Who’s companions; female superheroes), and violence (eg: taking back the night and tethered goats; silencing tactics; moral panics and trolling).
I love these carnivals. They show that the online feminist community – of which you are a part – is freakin’ awesome! What a year it’s been for feminism.
Steph at 天高皇企鹅远 is hosting next, and then it’s my turn for December.
So, check it out: The 53rd Down Under Feminists Carnival.
