Feminist Update – II

14 Apr

Tagged! I hope people have been keeping up with this feminism tag because there’s some great writing involved here. The latest:

At Blogpourri, Sujatha writes about her grand-aunt, married at the age of seven to a 42 year old man who promptly abandoned her. She went on to live a life that so many women today would love to have.

At Writing Life, Jawahara writes that she is not afraid of labels. Feminism is a part of her identity, not the definition and it has set her free to be all that she can.

I want more. But in the meantime, check out Charukesi’s post about the grand old ladies in her family. It’s not only an excellent blog but a look at her posts on gender issues is well worth your time.


More Tags!

DG brings the Mad Momma’s answer to a separate tag on feminism – Five Things Feminism has given her.

This was in response to Chatterbox who wrote about what feminism has done for her.

She was tagged in turn by Annie whose thoughts can be read here.

And this of course was inspired by Aishwarya who had so much to say, she was reluctant to say it all – but I’m glad she did.

She got tagged by Belledame – her take on things, touches on the greater civil rights issue.

And it came to her via Feministe here.

Who was prodded into it by Shakespeare’s Sister who was talking about American feminism.

And here, ladies and gentlemen, is the post that started it all.

Don’t you love the interconnected series of tubes and tunnels that is the interweb? I do!

    The Mad Momma wrote this a while back –
    Does it count?

    Amrita, thanks for the mention… my post was written long ago – and the funny thing is these – and such women – do not know how “femnisit” they are being!

    And there are also women who don’t even understand feminism!

    Charukesi – some things are always relevant 🙂 and yes, “feminist” is probly a bad word in their dictionary.

    Kishore – I’ll comment! I’ll comment! 😀
