Ten new (to me) female bloggers, ten top posts, on my way to 400. It answers the question: where are all the female bloggers?
To begin with the seasonal, a Christmas story from Tayari Jones. Then L on Random_Thoughts says angrily the war on Christmas must end. Remember: Jesus will hate you if you take your lights down, ever.
Becca on Not Quite Sure offers advice for parents on surviving the Christmas concert.
In India, the Blank Noise Project is collecting information on “Eve-teasing” – harassment of women in public – and campaigning against those who would blame the victims. Jasmeen reports on a university’s skewed view. And the blogosphere is far from free of such behaviour. The Fat Lady Sings finds misogyny at its finest in comments on posts about violence against women.
SexPosFemme is angered by an article about black women’s sexuality.
Maryscott on My Left Wing expresses solidarity with striking transit workers.
Girlbomb, whose book is out in the new year – check out the link on the left of her blog – has a brief foretaste of fame. But if you’d like to range further afield for reading material, the Accidental Blogger offers a South Asian reading list.
Femme Feral (love the name) on Fluffy Dollars finds a good skirt is hard to find. Capitalist fashion strikes again.
You can find the last edition of Femmes Fatales here.
Nominations (including self-nominations) for Femmes Fatales are also hugely welcome – I’ll probably get to you eventually anyway, but why not hurry along the process?
