Feministing Follow Friday: Feminist Academics, Vol. I

Twitter, Feministing style

It’s no secret that there’s a special place in Feministing’s heart for academic feminists. It’s a rare treat, though, to see what distinguished profs and researchers think about outside the classroom. Twitter can offer a little window into this world, so here are five of our favorite feminist academics to follow.

Nominate for next week’s installment in the comments! We’re particularly looking for activists tweeting about their on-the-ground work. Links appreciated. Of course, make sure to follow @feministing.
