  1. Feminist Book Review: Romeo and/or Juliet

    Every so often the debate arises: Was Shakespeare a real person? Did he write the plays he is famous for? Or did he collaborate with other writers, or steal their work, or was his name just a pseudonym? Ryan North has the answer–Shakespeare stole his famous tale Romeo and Juliet from Ryan himelf. “How?” you… Read More View the full article
  2. Feminist Book Review: The Summer Prince

    The city of Palmares Tres rises above the post-holocaust wasteland that was once Brazil. Men destroyed the world so now, in Palmares Tres, women rule. But every five years, the Queen chooses a king. When June Costa is just 16 years old, a young man named Enki is crowned king. June and Enki bond over… Read More View the full article
  3. Black Mirror and EC Episode

    I was mixed about it. I was initially confused once the nurse said it was EC, because it didn't make sense the mom would use EC when she knew the sexual encounter was older than 24 hours. When the nurse said she was no longer pregnant, then I assumed the same as you did - that in this future world we have an accessible early abortion OTC option. I can see how people would be upset though. No doubt we are a bit more aware of the issue of Plan B and how it is different than abortion. It could be that other people are still conflating the two, and this episode will further cement their belief. That first episode though! Such a good one - that is my favorite so far.

  7. In Finnish the word "sisu" roughly translates to "have guts", and that is my motto for 2018. I heard the word often growing up in Northern Minnesota, but as a fourth generation Finnish and Swedish American I feel very distant from the countries my ancestors came from. I want to reconnect to my roots and harness the term in what will surely be an awesome and goal achieving year. (That's why I made my first pot of mojakka on New Year's Eve!) I will be having my first child in April (or March if early!), but don't want to slow down my work with F-BOM or my work with my local DFL senate district as we continue the battle for the mid-term elections. In order to do all the things, I will very much need sisu!
  8. 2017 was some year for feminism. From the Women’s March on Washington to the #MeToo movement, women’s voices are being heard louder than ever. Throughout the year, feminist movies and television provided additional bright spots of representation. Whether or not you believe these shows represent a cultural shift, they provided comfort, distraction, motivation, education, and hope… Read More View the full article

  10. Star Wars The Last Jedi: A Feminist Movie Review

    ***This review is spoiler-free until the last paragraph*** *Cue theme song* Like many nerds, I was a big Star Wars fan growing up. However, my love of Star Wars faded as I got older, because I noticed how little of the story involved women. *Cue the reboot* With women and other underrepresented groups taking up… Read More View the full article

  13. Best TV Show of all time (and why?)

    I remember the Wire was super popular when I worked at the Library for a few years ago. People were always checking out the DVDs. I have watched the first season of Breaking Bad, and I just really hated Walt so I couldn't get into it. If I had to pick my favorite show of all time....man that's hard! I really like Sailor Moon, but I also had a Dark Angel phase (but it got cancelled after 2 seasons). I am also a big Walking Dead fan, so I think that's what I'd have to go with currently. Especially season 5, which was just amazing. I'm sensing a trend here though! I would also characterize TWD as a character driven show.
