I’m taking a break from the capsule wardrobe challenge business to tell you about the feminist fashion/fashionable feminist blogging event I mentioned last week in my post about what feminism means to me. We’ve gone one further and set up a bloggers network! Here’s all the info on both the network and the event. So exciting!
Feminist Fashion Bloggers (FFB) is a network for fashion bloggers interested in feminism and feminist bloggers interested in fashion. The aim is to meet like minded bloggers, encourage dialogue and discussion both within and between the two blog niches and to explore the intersections and links between the two topics. And to have fun in doing so!
Also, FFB is hosting a blog event to celebrate Women’s History Month:
Show us YOUR “Fashionable Feminist”! on Wednesday 16 March
You are invited to answer the question: How do you express your feminism in the way you dress? You can answer by outfit posts, or essay, however you see fit.
If you would like to take part in the Women’s History Month event, you can sign up by replying in the comments, with your name, blog name and email address. Or you can email me at at franca(dot)likes(dot)apples(at)gmail(dot)com).
I would LOVE to see lots of people take part in a discussion around this fascinating issue!
In addition to this, FFB founding members will hold a virtual roundtable discussion and post a series of coordinated posts on each Wednesday during March, beginning with a post on 2 March featuring a personal feminist/fashion icon. This could be a feminist who also has great style, or a fashion icon who also works with and for women, someone from history, or someone active just now – again the choice is up to each blogger!
The remainder of the posts will be based on the roundtable discussion.
If you’re keen to find out more about FFB or become involved in the roundtable discussion, please comment or email me, we’d love to have you! You can also join FFB’s google group, just go to that link and request an invite, I’ll approve you soonest!
Current FFB members are:
