Feminism Friday – The Blog

Reflections of a young feminist… and much more!

About May 13, 2009

This blog was created with inspiration from “Finally, A Feminism 101 Blog” who informed me of the “Thinking Girl’s Feminism Friday” archive. The goal as I understand it is to share the popularity of the search words “Feminism Friday” to further spread the word about the causes of all feminists.

This blog will focus primarily on issues of young womyn and third wave feminism. We will cover topics ranging from; sexual assault, wage disparities, trans-activism, abortion and reproductive rights, gay marriage, racism, and much more.

I have not yet decided on whether this blog will be anonymous or not, although I am leaning towards being totally open with my identity. The people who I care about know me and the rest will never be that important to my life for their opinions to matter.

I am a white, female, cis-gendered, mostly straight, young able-bodied person. I work for non-profit, mostly feminist run organizations. In other words I am speaking from a place of privilege when it comes to most issues. I hope that I am able to use this privilege to benefit all womyn human beings (and the animals too!) and our mutual political actions.

I cannot promise to blog everyday, and obviously the title of the blog should indicate that I would be blogging on Friday. But I am not going to hold myself to either of those things. I will however, promise with all my heart to blog at least once a week assuming no major emergencies arise.

Finally, I am Canadian. I hope to add some content from north of the border that I find is missing from my favourite blogs. And for the inspiration I will link to them on the appropriate page so please click over to visit them as well. Enjoy and comment often!
