Help (again) May 22, 2006

Posted by Winter in the adventures of mind the gap.

I know we really should do our own research, but we’re incredibly busy at the moment: Naiades is in the middle of a house move, Siberian Falls is revising for finals and I’m facing a viva. So I don’t feel too bad about requesting our readers’ help with our group’s discussion nights again.

This week the topic is “Socialist Feminism.” If anyone has spotted or written any posts, essays or articles on this subject, please could you let us know about it in the comments or drop us an email? It needs to be fairly short and accessible to people who dobn’t know much about socialism. So far I’m thinking about using something from Angela Davis’s Women, Race and Class, but it would be good to have something British as well.

The discussion nights are going well, but we’ve been shamefully bad at writing posts about them. The ones we’ve done on women in the media, pornography and post feminism will all make interesting posts if we ever get round to it.
