Friday Femmes Fatales No 26

Where are all the female bloggers? Here, in my weekly "top ten" posts.

I'm on my way to a collection of 300 female bloggers.

Irish Witch on The Daily Kos lays out exactly why abortion rights are a deal-breaker. (Something I fear American women are going to have to work very, very hard to maintain.)

Fighting another good fight, the (wisely) anonymous author of What Now has run slap bang into academic non-freedom at the institution she calls "St Martyr's".

Still on the academic side, the author of Six Impossible Things Before Breakfast (I can only admire her - the only thing I do before breakfast is stagger out of bed) is thinking about how to develop an academic voice. (Likely to also be of interest to writers in other areas.)

Joy on Joy of Knitting finds that we are still living in a romantic society and she's convinced it is the source of many of our ills. She probably wouldn't like all of the children called Kloe or Kayleigh or Bobby-Jo or Jordyn, being discussed by Allison on Don't Let's Start.

Aekta on Whirlwings is reflecting on some gender research is strictly for the birds - swallows in this case. They're a fickle lot, those female swallows.

Monica on In Small Pieces has meanwhile been encouraged to research human sexual categories by an unusual dance troupe.

Chameleon on Redemption Blues gets stuck into issue of food and feminism. On similar lines, Lilian on Mama(e) in Translation asks: Would you like to have your meal in a public toilet? (Yep,some people still can't cope with breastfeeding in public.)

Finally, some lovely, soothing fractals - mathematically generated images, with a word-description, or for a good laugh join Annie on The Not-Quite Sunday Funnies, where she asked, how the Crazy Frog was castrated?

Last week's edition is here.

Remember nominations are hugely welcome - I'll probably get to you eventually anyway, but why not hurry along the process?
