Feminism 101: Blogroll

I was inspired by Kat's post on feminist terms to give a quick introduction to some really good blogs for new and curious feminists. Enjoy!

= Frequently Asked Questions/Concepts Blogs=
  • Finally, A Feminism101 Blog: A blog created to keep feminist newbies from derailing feminist discussion with common questions. If you're an expert, it's useful as a refresher on the basics. If you're new, I recommend reading through the whole blog because it discusses concepts that are used in nearly every feminist conversation.
  • Shakesville: This blog goes into depth on more complex feminist concepts. I really like the explanation of rape culture.
  • Official Shrub: A blog that sadly doesn't update that often. The blog is a really good place to learn about abilism. It also has really great posts on feminism and videogames and what sex positivism means.
=Personal Favorites=
  • Sociological Images:An all-around awesome blog that shows how people are depicted in the media.
  • FWD/Forward: A relatively new feminist with disability blog.
  • Racialicious: A blog focusing on race issues and anti-racism.
  • Transgriot: "News, opinions, commentary, history and a little creative writing from an African-American transwoman about the world around her."
