Fighting with the Sky

This Week in Blogs: July 5 – July 11

Posted on: July 12, 2009

This week has been kind of crazy for me, which means that time to work on the blog has been given a lower priority to some of the others things that I have to do. But hopefully this will be a relaxing Sunday and I will have some time to work on blog posts.

Here are some blog posts that I found interesting this week:

  • Sarah Seltzer at RH Reality Check compares the racism of the burqa ban to the patriarchal standards of beauty in the United States.
  • How do you describe you personal and political attitudes towards abortion? Are you pro-choice? pro-life? anti-choice? pro-abortion? RMJ at Deeply Problematic explores her view being pro-abortion.
  • Lizz at Choices Campus Blog looks at how jokes about rape add to a culture where rape is not taken seriously.
  • Jill at Feministe qualifies what is necessary in a feminist urban policy.
  • There has been a lot of news over Palin resigning. Jordan at Equal Writes examines her resignation a little further.
  • Jessica at the Frisky asks: could you date a guy who wasn’t a feminist?
  • Amy at Pregnant Pause looks at two tv shows that represent teen pregnancy: The Secret Life of the American Teenager and 16 and Pregnant.
  • Even though this isn’t a feminist blog, I thought I would include this one. Entertainment Weekly examines the role women play in gangster movies.
  • Dave Zirin for The Nation further explores the sexism present at Wimbledon.

What were some of your favorite blog posts that you wrote or read this week? Leave some recommendations of blogs and blog posts in the comments.
