FF: Book Moments that made my little feminist heart flutter

It’s Femme Friday! I normally reserve my list making for Top Ten Tuesdays, but I couldn’t help myself. I had just read a few books that made my heart flutter and wanted to share those moments along with some other great ones from throughout the year. I’m not one to flat out call a book feminist because there can be a bit of a hard line and … Continue reading FF: Book Moments that made my little feminist heart flutter

FF – Historical Fiction with WOC protagonists

I don’t know about you, but I’ve seen a lot more historical fiction with white protagonists than with protagonists that are women of color. Now, there’s nothing inherently wrong with white protagonists, but if you enjoy reading diversely and historical fiction and do not live in a country where the dominant race is not white, then you may not have a solid place to start … Continue reading FF – Historical Fiction with WOC protagonists

FF- International Day to End Violence Against Women

This year’s International Day to End Violence Against Women happens to fall on a Friday, so that makes it the perfect Femme Friday topic. These are some books that can help get someone sped up on the history of violence against women. While men do perpetrate violence against each other as well, this day is meant to bring awareness to the fact that there are … Continue reading FF- International Day to End Violence Against Women

FF -Native American Heritage Month

I may not be completely horrible about reading diversely, but I have been negligent on my indigenous voices in general. All of these books were already on my TBR, but I haven’t read them yet.              I plan to read some of them soon and others a little later, but I want to have read them all by the next Native American Heritage Month. … Continue reading FF -Native American Heritage Month

FF – In Honor of Veteran’s Day

I’ve only read one book about women in the military and this Corsets To Camouflage: Women And War – Kate Adie, which isn’t particularly American for me to lean on for this holiday. The book does lean on the British experience, but it goes a long way (if I recall correctly because it’s been years and I’ve been meaning to reread it) to explain the … Continue reading FF – In Honor of Veteran’s Day

FF: American Women in Politics

By the next Femme Friday, America will have a new president. Hopefully. There is the possibility of shenanigans that would prevent the naming of a new president (like back in 2000 when the election went really bananas), but we will hopefully know who by then who will be the next person to sit in the Oval Office. Now, I’m not one to try to persuade … Continue reading FF: American Women in Politics

FF: Good Girls do revolt too

I was debating on what to post for this week’s Femme Friday and then I saw that Amazon FINALLY made the rest of the first season for The Good Girls Revolt! I watched the pilot last year during their Pilot season and absolutely LOVED it and then I never saw anything about them choosing to continue with it. I had high hopes at first because … Continue reading FF: Good Girls do revolt too

FF: Great Girlfriends!

Between I Thought It Was Just Me pointing out the way people think women and can’t be friends and are just catty and reading Lumberjanes yesterday, I realized that books about great girlfriends would make a great Femme Friday post this week! There really is this horrible idea that women don’t go along, that we just have to be or are naturally catty and obstinate toward each … Continue reading FF: Great Girlfriends!

Women at Marvel Comics Watch – December 2016 Solicits, 37 Women on 25 Books — STRAITENED CIRCUMSTANCES: Tim Hanley on Wonder Woman and Women in Comics

So this isn’t a normal Femme Friday post, but I wanted to share someone with you all that regularly writes about women and does some great research into the progress of women in comics. I love this blog and have been following it for a while. I think it’s been two years. As suggested above, it focuses exclusively on women in comics and not just … Continue reading Women at Marvel Comics Watch – December 2016 Solicits, 37 Women on 25 Books — STRAITENED CIRCUMSTANCES: Tim Hanley on Wonder Woman and Women in Comics
