A thousand apologies (feels like this is all I ever say at the beginning of these posts these days!). My wifi is broken so I have to try at get these posts ready with intermittent internet at home and during my lunch break at work. EXHAUSTING! but so worth it to bring you lovely feminausts all the beautiful links we’ve been reading this week. And more importantly to introduce you to a little surprise!
Yes that’s right, feminaust is expecting a new addition in the coming months – the EDITH fund for fabulous young women (props to Edith Cowen, obvs). Thanks to you readers the balance sheet already reads $682.48 collected from our commission on mooncup sales and from the amazing Christmas (Island) in July party last month. We need to raise another $1317.52 before we can open a Gumnut Account with the Australian Communities Foundation. So make sure you remind your friends to buy their mooncups from us and stay tuned for more fundraising adventures in the future!
Right, onto the links.
This week’s pony award goes to feminaust favourite Damon Young and his article about the fallacy of “women’s work”.
Although I also can’t go past this “open letter to an anti-feminist” it reminded me of something we published some time ago “Forever Not Yours ~ an open letter to a random sleeze”.
Yes, it’s here, if you’re not enrolled now it’s too late. And so the circus begins!
