The Vagenda: it’s very good.

24 Feb

For those readers who share my interest in gender and feminism, or at the very least possess a functioning brain cell – I discovered this blog today, and I think you might like it.

Firstly, it’s highly amusing,  and secondly, it made me think “thank god, someone feels exactly the same way as I do about Cosmo.”

This article provides some really interesting background info on the site, and I particularly liked this summary of the authors’ approaches:

The Vagenda isn’t offering feminism-lite or the much-mocked “fun feminism” (where empowerment can mean little more than Sex and the City-style consumption); the site also carries articles about domestic violence. This is fighting feminism where the weapon is satirical wit.

P.s the observant among you will have discovered that the appearance of this blog has changed – this was due to a suggestion by Mother that a list of my previous articles to the side would be very helpful [and unfortunately my old design template didn’t have the functionality for that].

May I draw your attention not only to the new “Blogroll” section [I haven’t figured out how to change the name of this to something cool, yet], where The Vagenda resides. You will also find there a link to Olivercooperwrites, which I hope you will enjoy with equal pleasure.

There’s also several new fancy features like a “tag cloud” where you can click on a topic and internet magic will take you to everything I have written and “tagged” as relating to it. Oh, there’s also a “Follow Me!” button, if you feel like it 😉
