This is what a feminist looks like

 

I converted back in 2007, over a conversation with my friend Sian in a youth hostel in Canada where I used the phrase ‘I’m not a feminist but…’ so many times I’m surprised she didn’t just punch me.

Earlier this week I got a message from my long-term friend & collaborator, Samantha, asking me ‘Why do you think so many girls/women are uncomfortable with the word “feminism”?’

Turns out she had been laid-up in bed with strep throat for a few days & decided to start a blog about feminism. Head over to the F bomb to read the rest of my reply, see what other people have been saying, and to add your own thoughts.
