Today we talked about the feminist praxis and how we can do little things to apply our theory to our practice. We looked at feminist blog that does a lot to help the feminist movement just by being a presence on the internet. This link I am sharing is a list of what the author considers to be some of the best and most influential feminist blogs.
I, for one, hadn’t heard of any of these blogs, or any blog, frankly. I think they could be very beneficial on keeping me updated on the issues and I think anyone could use these blogs to help spread the feminist message.
Sharing articles and paraphrasing ideas on social media that you get from these blogs can lead to them spreading. We know that social media is powerful. According to this blog post by Facebook (https://research.facebook.com/blog/three-and-a-half-degrees-of-separation/), the average amount of mutual Facebook friends between you and any other random Facebook user in the world is roughly 3.5. So any little thing can spread to a whole lot of people.
Here is the list. The blogs are varied. One covers health issues only. One talks about street harassment. Many touch on current events and many others are all about angry, in-your-face feminism, which is cool.
