Welcome to Monday feminausts! We hope you’ve had a lovely weekend, and that winter isn’t treating you too badly. Feminaust is currently in Zurich for YWCA World Council, we’re also wearing shorts and being woken up by church bells. It’s a tough gig.

Below, you will be able to find a list of the interesting and feminist reads we’ve collected from the internet. They are Australian-based or international, and we welcome any discussion they invite. However, as usual, we don’t necessarily endorse the content. Enjoy and have a great week!
