Friday listicle round-up

Here we go – some light feminist Friday reading to ease you into your weekend. I’ll be spending the weekend working at and presenting at the Women Writing Across Cultures conference here in Oxford; if you’re interested in academic feminism and women’s writing, I’m going to try to live-tweet some of the panels.

In the meantime, this week was Bisexual Awareness Week! Bisexual erasure is a HUGE problem in media and in the way we speak about sexuality.

bisexual-umbrella-640x563The first link in this week’s round-up lists five ways in which you can celebrate. Enjoy!

1. Five ways you can celebrate Bisexual Awareness Week.

2. We have only a month until Halloween! Here’s a costume guide for girl empowerment!

3. Looking to see a film this weekend? Here are twenty things that everyone should know about gender bias in film.

4. From Cosmo, thirteen things everyone should know about personhood.

5. And, for those of you who, like me, don’t think you ever want kids, here are twenty-five famous women on childlessness.

What were you reading this week?

  1. This is fantastic! And as an out and proud bisexual person, It’s so cool that this umbrella chart exists. The only thing that’s disappointing is that it still leaves out definitions for men who identify as fluid. I mean, I know it already does with the term homoflexible along with lesbiflexible. As well as not singling anyone out, by using the terms, “people”, which is great! But I still wish there were other words along with the “other bi identities” like, “fagbi” “fabi” or “bisexual-gay”, etc. to describe men. 🙂
