Hey everyone! This is Genevieve, sometimes known as UneFemmePlusCourageuse. I’ve read and commented here for a while, and I’m one of those new people who will be writing this column. Sooo, let’s have a go at it, shall we?
Over at Pajiba.com, a review of The Rachel Maddow Show, probably the best news show out there now (at least for crazy liberals like myself).
Sarah Haskins of Target: Women has been everywhere in the feminist blogosphere in the last few months, and Jezebel has an interview with her.
Several bloggers…among them Cara, Lynne of The F Word, and Renee, have been calling attention to Pepsi’s latest horrible ad campaign. Because apparently women are worth no more than soft drinks.
Chevy plays to the stereotype of the ridiculous materialistic woman–and with a gas-guzzling SUV, no less. From Feministing.
Beyonce has an interesting new video exploring gender roles in relationships. From the Feministing Community Blog.
Ampersand from Alas, a Blog writes about the new Watchmen adaptation and how its directors just can’t seem to allow a character to be fat.
Jesse Taylor and Amanda Marcotte of Pandagon review Rock Band 2.
Kate Smurthwaite of Cruella Blog talks about some awful headlines in British free newspapers.
MzBitca of A Crazy Random Happenstance discusses the awesome female characters of Harry Potter, focusing particularly on Molly Weasley.
Carrie Brownstein, of Sleater-Kinney and the blog Monitor Mix, wrote a funny list of songs that could save a person’s life (and how.)
Sweet Machine over at Shapely Prose has an open thread up about Halloween costumes. And Kate Harding discusses what an asshole Denis Leary is (personally, I have despised Denis Leary for a long time.)
And something I’ve been enjoying…and being unnerved by…lately–Linda Hirshman’s serialized novel Red State over on RH Reality Check.
And because I’m not above self-linking…Hannah Montana is racist.
