Welcome to Monday! ~ 30th May 2011

Well, SlutWalk Melbourne has happened! And oh boy did it happen!

Meanwhile we also had Feminist Futures AND The Emerging Writers Festival over the weekend so that’s given the feminausts plenty to think and write about over the next few weeks and all the while we were still reading heavily and generally getting along in our exciting feminaust lives.

The official launch date of feminaust is fast approaching, so we hope you’re coming and that you’ve RSVPd (because if you do you get to go on the bar tab and have free drinkies!). We’re pretty excited about the line up for the festivities, we have a few announcements to make in that regard over the next few weeks, but in the meantime, enjoy catching up on all the feminaust goss from the last week. This is what WE were reading. If YOU were reading something else, please send it along or comment below.

I don’t like to promote The Bolt Report (aka The Amazing Racist) but here he is interviewing Clem Bastow about SlutWalk… rather badly.
