Welcome to Monday ~ 14 May 2012

Welcome to Monday feminausts. Aaararghhhh winter is upon us! I don’t know about the rest of you lovely feminausts in Australia but Melbourne got washed out today. Wow. So. Much. Water.

We’d love to hear from you if you have anything to add to our feminist anger list – aka the shit that you can’t stand since you became a feminist (or could never stand!).

But on with the news… please don’t get angry at the messenger. Start a discussion or write a blog post for us (send to info@feminaust.org.au) instead.

No, Mr Fashion Photographer, we are not in a post-feminist world so just fuck off with your hipster sexism OK???
