    Feminist Sundays: Feminist Blogs

    Feminist Sundays is a weekly meme created at Books and Reviews. The aim is simply to have a place and a time to talk about feminism and women’s issues. This is a place of tolerance, creativity, discussion, criticism and praise. Remember to keep in mind that everyone is entitled to their own opinion, although healthy discussion is encouraged.

    Feminist Sundays & Jazz Age January

    This Feminist Sunday is a very special one. I love working with Leah from Books Speak Volumes and since I loved her Jazz Age January so much, I thought we could do a cross-over post: a Feminist Sunday post with a Jazz Age theme. And as lovely as she is, she agreed. So, Leah is posting here and I’ll be posting on her blog. This is one of the reasons I love blogging so much! You can read my post on Zelda here. I’m Leah from Books Speak Volumes, and I’m excited to be sharing a post that overlaps Jazz Age January with Feminist Sundays! After decades of hard work…

This is a place of tolerance, creativity, discussion, criticism and praise. Remember to keep in mind that everyone is entitled to their own opinion, although healthy discussion is encouraged. Today, I would like to donate my words to someone who can put them way better than me: Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.

    Hello, everyone! Feminist Sundays is a weekly meme created at Books and Reviews. The aim is simply to have a place and a time to talk about feminism and women’s issues. This is a place of tolerance, creativity, discussion, criticism and praise. Remember to keep in mind that everyone is entitled to their own opinion, although healthy discussion is encouraged.

English author Elizabeth Jane Howard died this week and, although quite an underrated and overlooked writer, the newspapers and tabloids saved a little space for her. This is an example: It’s 2014. I really, really hoped to see a…
