The Carnival of Feminists is a wonderful bi-monthly event, where I often find much of my feminist reading. They feature a lot of new blogs each time, so it really makes for some interesting points of view. Ofcourse much of it is still US and Euro-centric, but that is changing, and should change faster, if more and more of us from other countries participate !
I often complain about how so much feminist blogging is lovely to read, but doesn’t tie in directly with my immediate concerns as an Indian woman. Abortion rights, for e.g., which seems to be the most hotly debated topic in the American feminist blogspace is not directly relevant here – technically, we have complete rights to choose, though the social structure may in reality leave women with few choices. The onus of bringing these issues up then, is on us, who live in this environment and need to deal with it.
So, if you have a good post you’d like to share, or have come across an interesting post that you’d like to nominate, head over to the F-word blog which is hosting the 35th Carnival.
The current one is on at A Somewhat Old, But Capacious Handbag (Doesn’t that deserve an award for the title…)
