weekwoman.wordpress.com/ - A Pox on the Patriarchy. Blog for women who are interested in anything and everything. Unashamedly feminist, political and, dare I say it, sometimes intellectual.
berimbaudrum.org: Berimbaudrum was published in September and it has already been successful in engaging a good audience. I created this blog after reflecting about the presence of music in all cultures and its relationship with colonialism and globalization, in particular imposition of commercial worldwide in contrast with the changes brought by the Internet. I thought that it was also time to talk about World Music from a non Europe/USA centred perspective. As the blog developed I also realised that this is another field where women are under represented or pressurized into giving in to their objectification. As a woman, I also realised that as I advance into developing the idea into small projects, that although this field is more progressive and multicultural, I am still having to deal with the same misogynistic attitudes found in IT. But above all, this is a labour of love, a subject which I enjoy immensely writing about.
savethewomenslibrary.blogspot.co.uk not my website - but currently a really important campaign. So few women's buildings left in London. LSE are saying they have "saved" the Women's Library - but they are merely taking the collections and putting them in their own library in Holborn - completely different outcome - and they are refusing to meet with people to discuss alternatives.

IndependentVoicesandIndependentblogs Blog on those defenceless and vulnerable in society so often forgotten or hidden from public view but so frequently abused and exploited in silence when we too often choose to look the other way.

courage-is.blogspot.com This is my blog on bringing up a daughter with Asperger's Syndrome: http://www.courage-is.blogspot.com. It looks at perceptions of autism and aspergers, depression and mental health. My aim is to look more closely at what it means to be female and autistic in a world of male stereotypes on the subject, as well as to broaden the conversation about inclusivity in schools and what provision is made for special educational needs and how working families cope with the challenges that are thrown at them.

allthatchas.blogspot.com Over four years old now, what started as a space for me to rant about the sexism I regularly encounter has become a resource for all things feminist. The topics I write about include: media sexism, feminism and politics, reproductive rights, physical and sexual violence against women, sexuality, body image and many more. If it's in the news and it affects women, chances are I'll be writing about it. And if it's not in the news, I'll be asking why!
