New Article for the University of Birmingham: Why we Like Our Crime Fiction Feminist (But We May Have a Hard Time Admitting it)’

As many of you know, apart from working at Bodies in the Library I write for other outlets as well. I was recently invited to do a series of posts on crime fiction for the University of Birmingham’s new and super cool blog on popular culture and the first of them just came out this week. This project has been in the works for quite some time now and I couldn’t wait to share it with you all. The blog also features posts on other popular literature genres, such as romance so I highly recommend some browsing.

As it could not be otherwise I chose to write about crime fiction and feminism and how some people may have a hard time admitting they like their detectives female and feminists. Enjoy and please leave a comment letting me know what you think!  Just click on the image below to read it.

  1. Very cool! So interesting that the people surveyed pretty much agreed with everything that feminism stood for yet couldn’t bring themselves to use the word feminist. It’s so odd how that word has so much power to scare people away.

    1. Isn’t it? I was very surprised by that, but then again if they are reading and enjoying those stories there must be some feminism in those people, right? There’s hope!

Don't forget to share what you think!
