Blogs of Interest 1
Today, we are all bloggers. Or something like that.
Cruising through Feministing's blogroll, I rounded up the following blogs of interest: (Er, um, not cruising... uh, not like that, really. Oh, no! My recurring foot-in-mouth disease!)
Feminista! A Journal of Feminist Construction appears to be an online journal with articles such as Who's Co-opting Feminism? by Christy Burbidge and A Challenge to the Feminist Community by Laura Kamienski.
Feminist Law Professors is a mix of stuff, from news stories to conference announcements to letters.
Radical Doula says "Let’s start with a list of things that I identify with which led me to use this classification: doula, pro-choice, lesbian, latina, birth activist, progressive, gender non-conformist." She posts on all these issues.
Racialicious is a group blog concerned with stories on race and racism.
Pseudo-Adrienne's Liberal-Feminist Bias will entertain you and drive you to tears. (Hyperbolic? Me? Never!) She has an extensive blogroll which I'm itching to explore.
Our Bodies, Our Blog is focused on birth control and health info. From their About Us page:

* Identifying and collaborating with exemplary individuals and organizations that provide services, generate research and policy analysis, and organize for social change;
* Inspiring and empowering women to become engaged in the political aspects of sustaining good health for themselves and their communities.
And if any of the above bloggers are unhappy with my characterizations of their blogs, I plead laziness and ADD. It's a tough world for bloggers.
