A birthing plan that is a political statement, chasing Starbucks on Fair Trade, a history of typewriters, and more ...

Friday Femmes Fatales No 40 (Women Bloggers)

… running a day late today, sorry. But whoo-hoo! Four hundred female bloggers.

One Tenacious Baby Mama discusses her development of a birthing plan. (WARNING: There’s nothing prurient about this blog, but the whole design may be too much for conservative workplaces.) Yes, I tend to put “politics” at the top, but this is definitely a political statement.

Turning more traditionally political, on the Progressive Society Blog, a roundup of the state of the American polity. “The only people who can say they are better off today than they were when Clinton left office are all of the rich bastards making billions off of Dickie’s tax breaks.”

Then Robin Herman on The Girl in the Locker Room! offers details on one more reason why American women should be very concerned about Alito.

Green LA Girl is meanwhile running a campaign to get Starbucks to live up to its “Fair Trade” promises.

Janine’s blog reviews a TV programme that asks Is religion the root of all evil?

Agent Fang, on Fangworld, meanwhile, has to creatively navigate the hazards of a hospital, which you would think would be wheelchair-friendly. But do you suffer from paraskevidekatriaphobia? Do find out the diagnosis.

Switching professions, on Living Life, a reflection on the pains and pleasures of teaching English.

Then for something different Clea’s Cave has a 1921 postcard that tells a whole story on its own.

Staying historical, on the beautifully named Every Woman is a Goddess, Dana reflects on the mixed history of the typewriter for women.


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?
