Feminist Carnival: Break out the party hats ...
The Carnvial of Feminists No 8 is up on Gendergeek, and once again it holds hours of entertainment. There's everything from an interview with a female funeral director, to a lament about the covers of "chick-lit" novels (here, here), and a female US president (sadly only in a television drama).
There are lots of blog names there I don't recognise, which is always great to see - one of the main ideas of the carnival is that it highlights new names, and puts in contact people previously unaware of each other.
So go and check it out now!
All else that needs to be said is that Carnival No 9 will will on Mind the Gap on February 22. That's not far away ... Please send nominations to mindthegapcardiff AT yahoo DOT co DOT uk, to arrive no later than 19th February.
(By the way, MtG is having a "Body Image Week", and at present at the top of the blog really has to be seen to be believed.)
