Friday Femmes Fatales No 42

Working on the final century of a collection of 500 female bloggers. Where are they? HERE!

I begin with a delightful post - if you only read one read this one - Heo Cwaeth debunks the arguments of anti-feminists. A sample: "If we assume that fatness causes feminism, then it reasonably follows that Rush Limbaugh and Jerry Falwell are feminists." Read it, but don't ask me how to pronounce the name - my Anglo-Saxon isn't up to the task.

On the party politics side, on Writes Like She Talks, Jill Miller Zimon meets the Ohio Democratic Party Chairman, Chris Redfern.

Then, I probably should seek out more women who blog about computer technology (any thoughts?), but to start, here are Wendy Seltzer's reflections on spyware.

Combining a site review ( with a reflection on family history, Kristie Wells on Kiki's Korner is tracing her family tree.

Turning to the arts side, a review of Memoirs of a Geisha in the form of a poem. Mmm? I hear you say. No really; go and read it. Flextime's take on the film really sums it up. Beth Gottfried on Blogcritics, meanwhile, is looking forward to new movie called Brick.

And another review, of Frosted Flakes and similar high sugar cereals and their advertising campaigns. Isabel Walcott Hilborn says: "The addictive quality of sugar is a topic not adequately explored in medical studies and popular culture."

Turning on the personal side, Southern Bird reflects on her first year in Manchester, Joanne D. Kiggins while offers a peek out her window. There are deer, wild turkeys and more.

Then on Jenn's Journal, a painful, personal reflection on the pain of miscarriage.


You can find the last edition of Femmes Fatales here.

Nominations (including self-nominations) for Femmes Fatales are also hugely welcome - I'll probably get to you eventually anyway, but why not hurry along the process?

Natalie - Thanks so much for mentioning my blog! Just an FYI - My full name is Jill Miller Zimon, like Simon. I married into it, but boy, Miller was so much easier!

Thanks and be well.
