Hiya, if you are doing a piece that refers to feminism which resource do you use to see whats hot and whats not, IYSWIM?

Are there any reputable online feminist sites for instance that publish cutting edge stuff?

Thanks in advance smile

Oh come on Edam I know you are there! Its a bit of info, I'm not asking you round for cakes wink

I'm sorry about all the unpleasentness before.

It's the steroids.

Can you help me out with a bit of info please?

am not a journo

I would imagine that offline sources were more likely to be cited like the US magazines and the (few) UK ones

It would depend on the context though wouldn't it?

Did you see the article in the Fawcett society mag which mentioned Mumsnet?

why the steroids btw

by context I mean it would depend whether you were going for something academic or something popular/grass roots

Not really steroids, just nicotiene withdrawal. Was trying to be funny grin that's gritted teeth

I heartily do NOT recommend this weekend's Observer piece on new feminists

morningpaper Tue 11-Sep-07 20:51:28

Fawcett mag not online UNFORTUNATELY

Monkeytrousers Tue 11-Sep-07 20:51:53

Acedemic I think MP. I'm looking for a stepping stone to publish some stuff.

morningpaper Tue 11-Sep-07 20:53:12

Monkeytrousers Tue 11-Sep-07 20:57:52

As if feminism is about whether one 'can' go to lap-dancing clubs. Is not as bad as I remembered but I was apoplectic that the Obs Woman was yet again a huge spread of fashion and make-up.

Because there's nothing else that women want to read, right? <fears this may be true on the whole>

Monkeytrousers Tue 11-Sep-07 21:03:12

Can't fidn it MP and I can't CAT you as I have shamefully paid no money this year. Can you email me at porlawright @ msn . com

Monkeytrousers Tue 11-Sep-07 21:04:28

They just turned down two of my articles Billy - they might just have been crap of course [shame]

BillyBragg Tue 11-Sep-07 21:11:42

Well if they weren't about the latest trend for slouchy bags......
(Sorry, though.)

Oh, hello MT, sorry, missed this - left that thread and have been doing some RL. Um, I'd start with the Fawcett Society. And then scratch my head a bit and email MI, probably! I don't really write about feminism as a subject, I specialise in one area IYSWIM.

Monkeytrousers Tue 11-Sep-07 22:26:41

have emailed MI, awaiting feedback grin
