The feminaust month that was July!

Screen-Shot-2015-07-30-at-4.40.19-PM-730x492

So this is what we were reading in July. Please let us know if you were reading anything different or better or enjoyed something we read!

Admittedly, July was more of a race month than a women’s month here in Australia. I was overseas at the end of July/beginning of August and I can’t begin to express my disappointment in so much of the rhetoric around Adam Goodes. But, I was also proud to see and hear some strength and leadership from a huge cross section of Australia supporting Goodes and telling the racists where they could put it. Thanks goes to you.

Right, links!

Feminist Academic Collective collated all their July articles here.

The International Association for Feminist Economics had their conference in July!

The 86th Down Under Feminist Carnival happened at A Bee of A Certain Age

Are you tuning in to Feminist Focus at 3CR? If not you should be. Thursday nights 6-6:30pm

And speaking of broads who broadcast, are you listening to The Downlow on 3RRR? Sunday afternoons 1pm-2pm.

And more feminist radio, here’s an online one for you Feminist Magazine.

  1. I’d be interested in your views on the position in general of women in Islam and in particular the systematic rapes conducted by ISIS in the Middle East, according to an article in SLATE:
    http://www.slate.com/blogs/the_slatest/2015/08/13/the_new_york_times_details_isis_s_systemic_use_of_rape_it_is_uniquely_horrifying.html

    Of course, you could just ignore the questions, which has been the response of other professed feminists of whom I have asked the same questions.

  2. It must be Mr Simpson’s continued quest for knowledge that prevents his returning to thank you for your help, and his eagerness that made him forget the ‘please’ in his request.

    So I’ll offer you thanks on his behalf.

    For myself, thank you! I think may use a similar response to the same old sealioning ‘question’ they drag out so frequently. Not that they’ll go read of course but the link does provide an opportunity to hear from Muslim women, in their own voices, for other people who genuinely want to expand their awareness.
    Cheers,
