Happy first week of 2014, everyone. Let’s hope this is the year everyone realises you can’t polish a turd. Here’s some things I read this week that I found interesting.
2013 – The year Intersectionality gave WoC their own voice (Sam Ambreen and guests)- Women of colour discuss the highs and lows of 2013.
On the fallout from Women’s Hour (Reni Eddo-Lodge)- Reni expresses her right to reply with grace.
Louise Mensch and the grotesque spectacle of white privilege (Ally Fogg)- Unfortunately, Reni’s right to reply provoked more shit. Ally reports on the fallout of the fallout.
“I can’t think of any high profile white UK feminist who has “rejected” intersectionality” (Flavia Dzodan)- Flavia spots a troubling new trope in mainstream feminist discourse and pops it.
Whovian Feminism Reviews “The Time of the Doctor” (Whovian Feminism)- A feminist review of the Doctor Who Christmas special, covering what it got wrong.
Living the consequences (Feministkilljoys)- Beautiful post on the impact of whiteness in feminism.
Intellectual gaslighting or “Feminism needs a new intellectual voice” (Flavia Dzodan)- Flavia again, being awesome, again.
And finally, have a gratuitous selfie.
