Friday Feminist Fuck Yeah: Feminist Bloggers

This was the healthiest way for me to deal with the frustration I feel sometimes from being a self-proclaimed feminist blogger. It is quick and to the point and happy hour style late.

Enjoy your weekend folks.

    Fuck yeah to Jessica! It was her interview on The Colbert Report, where I learned about her book “Full Frontal Feminism” and Feministing.com. Without either I would not be the self proclaimed feminist that I am today. Thank you Jess, and thank you to Samhita, Ann, Courtney, Vanessa, Miriam, Celina and Shark-Fu for working so hard to make Feministing so awesome!!

    Fuck yeah to all the feminist bloggers!
    Because of her recent postings on “Ms. Pacman” and “Talking About Race, pt. 2″ my favorite blogger of the week is Dolly Speaks – http://dollyspeaks.wordpress.com
    My favorite feminist bloggers that I would love to give a shout out to are the following…
    Renee – http://www.womanist-musings.com
    BrownFemiPower – http://flipfloppingjoy.com
    Glennisha Morgan – http://glennishamorgan.wordpress.com

    Fuck yeah to Samhita! Doing anything in the wonderful world of social justice is all too often a one-way ticket to mad stress without access to any kind of emotional support. It takes serious courage and honesty to step up and talk about it AND to ask for people to spread around the kudos at the same time.
    Also, she’s the feminist blogger most liked by marine mammals, in a recent survey by the American Dentistry Association of astronauts.

    Latoya Peterson @ Racialicious…amazing writer, not to mention the issues she tackles. I don’t know how she churns out such thoughtful, honest posts at the rate she does while holding down a day job. I’d give anything to be able to communicate my point like that lady.

    Totally agree. I don’t know if she counts as a blogger but I love Sarah Haskins!! I pretty much live for her “Target Women” video segments.

    Fuck yeah! Great choices, I second that. I also love Cara at the Curvature (extra love to her right now, since she’s going through a tough time) and of course the Feministing ladies, especially Samhita and Jessica (Full Frontal Feminism was the book that got me hooked!).

    Seconded many of the above. And the ones I didn’t know but will check out now!
    I want to give a shoutout to Echidne at Echidne of the Snakes, because I learned so much from her, and still do. Her recent series on feminism is awesome.
    Also Rebecca Traister at Salon. Apart from being fantastic, she often makes me laugh.

    well nicely done, even if I’m more a Heck Yeah or atta girl, California gal:-)
    you are a go to site, no doubt, Feministing!
    And i think it is great to open this to letting folks know of other great sites.
    Of course, Womens Enews is great but not really a blog, but good qd reads!
    For feminist blogs I found a round of several at the Coffe Shop blogspot:
    http://thecoffeeshopblog.blogspot.com/
    My favs there:
    Heidi’s lawish-leaning feminist blog
    http://tdg.typepad.com/heidi_lis_potpourri/
    And the new hard-hitter by MSM journalists and editors furious at sexism in the press:
    http://www.femisex.com
    And one should not miss this:
    http://thenewagenda.net/
    “a new non-partisan group for women’s rights.”

    This is a great video, thanks for this. It’s always great to get a shout out for the work that we all do and all love and Samhita, you have hit the nail on the head here!
    I love http://womanist-musings.com Not only do I always love reading her perspective on whatever the topic she’s talking about that day, but she is also an amazing person. I’ve spoken to her through Twitter and also through blog comments and she’s just always great to talk to.
    I also read http://shakespearessister.blogspot.com like a crack head.
    And because I am also a feminist blogger, I hope no one minds a little shameless self-promotion…I run http://menstrualpoetry.com
