Feminist Sunday #7

***

Feminist Sunday is a weekly roundup of all the articles/threads/news/discoveries that include or are about women which have caught my attention and/or interest.

As I’ve moved out of Auckland into more rural areas it’s becoming more and more difficult to find stable internet so I’m struggling a bit to keep up with these Feminist Sunday posts (hence why this is a day late). And that’s a real shame this week, particularly, because there was so much good stuff on the internet due to International Women’s Day on the 8th! Right now, back in the UK, the WOW Southbank festival will have come to a close and I can’t wait for some of the discussions to be available on YouTube at some point.

In terms of reading, I finally finished Elmet, which has made it onto the Women’s Prize for Fiction longlist, and have started a brilliant memoir by Porochista Khakpour, called Sick. I’ve also been dipping in and out of Slouching Toward Bethlehem – Didion’s writing never fails to impress. Long, lazy days at the beach have enabled me to get a fair chunk of reading done, making me feel more at ease in this new land.

Here are some of the interesting bookish/feminist related things on the web this week (of which there was loads!):
