RMott: “Resisting Porn Culture”

Ilithyia Inspired: “Uncensored Birth Power”

Guardian CiF: Julie Bindel on World Femininity Day, “The end of feminism, or, how I learned to stop worrying and wear lipstick”

From Meghan Murphy, “My performance of femininity and why it isn’t all about me.”

So along with all the other labels that come along with being critical of gender binaries, pornography, prostitution, etc, that plant a feminist firmly in the no-fun camp, being critical of ‘femininity’ now, apparently, makes you ‘anti-feminine’, whatever that means. The trouble with the ‘anti-feminine’ label is, of course, that femininity isn’t a real thing.

Smash the P: “Joyful Resistance”

Femonade: “On Harm Reduction”

Finally, Gallus Mag shared a fabulous (and uplifting!) short video of Gail Dines talking about the enduring appeal of radical feminism.

[Added on July 10th:] Also!! Here’s a video of Sheila Jeffreys speaking about Kate Millet’s book Sexual Politics (found via this comment on RadFemHub).
