Feminist Fashion Bloggers – blog event!

by Franca on 16 February 2011

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

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:

event final

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:

Thanks to the ace Mrs. Bossa for the artwork!

Oh, how exciting! I'd really like to be involved if I may?

Sacramento February 16, 2011 at 10:24 am

I do not like labels Franca, but I will be with you all the way from afar.
Mil besos my dear friend.

Sadie February 16, 2011 at 10:38 am

Definitely the event; I like the idea of being involved in the discussion too but now I think about it I'm on holiday for a week in March so perhaps I'll stick with that.

Misfit Sarah February 16, 2011 at 11:05 am

I've already signed up over at CitizenRosebud and what a wonderful idea – thank you Franca!

I would love to join the event, but I'm not sure if I can find the time to join the discussion group right away – can I still join later? Oh, as a prerequisite I should finally write that post about why I am a feminist. Mhm. Gotta work on that :)

Cheers,

How exciting! Kudos to you all for getting this set up. I'd love to participate in both the event and the discussion group. (Though it's possible I may not be able to post every week for the discussion group, as March is a very busy work/travel month for me.) Thank you!

A big applause for Mrs Bossa! Both her images rock! And yay for you organizing this group and event, Franca. It is going to be off-the-hook!

Jeanofalltrades February 16, 2011 at 7:35 pm

I'd like to participate in the event and posts. Not sure if I can commit to the discussions at the moment though. But I'd like to be part of this in some way.

OK, I have invited everyone why who has said they are interested in the discussion to the google group – you can also add yourself – the link is above.

Thank you so much for your interest and support!

Katie February 17, 2011 at 2:56 am

I'm in, too, so I think the Interrobangs email would work.

Fabienne Jach February 17, 2011 at 4:46 am

Hey darlin', I tagged you with a Stylish Blogger Award tonight, I'd love to get to know more about you:) I want to read more about this event, too. I have a feeling it's right up my alley!

Veshoevius February 17, 2011 at 5:03 pm

Would love to join both but I may not be able to make all the posts on all of the deadlines!

Lisa February 18, 2011 at 2:37 am

Hi! I'm a relatively new reader, and relatively new to fashion blogging (it's a sort of new project of mine), but I've been modding at a feminist site for about seven years, so I am all over that angle. I'd really love to be a part of the event, and of the discussion, if that's all right. :)

Dawn February 18, 2011 at 11:37 am

I would love to take part in both the event and the discussion group!

Aly W February 18, 2011 at 3:07 pm

This sounds fun!
I'm not a blogger that blogs about feminism, though. And I'm not a fashion blogger, either (though I read wayyy too many style blogs!). I'm just a high schooler with words and a fascination with sociology :)

EBSnare February 18, 2011 at 11:35 pm

Hello! I've just requested membership for the Google group so hopefully that will come through soon. I was directed here by the blog Already Pretty's link round up and this sounds like an amazing project, both the network and the 'Fashionable Feminist' event. I would really like to be part of it if I could? My name is Eleanor and my blog is http://themagicsquarefoundation.wordpress.com, contact: eleanorsnare[at]hotmail[dot]com
Thanks, look forward to hearing from you soon!

I'm in! March is a little busy for me so I don't think I can commit to the wider round of talks at the moment – definitely up for the event on 16th, though.

Grace Mitchell February 25, 2011 at 5:02 pm

I love this! I've requested to join the Google group and am working on a post for March 16th. I only wish I had found this sooner!

oranges_and_apples October 10, 2011 at 7:25 am

I don't have an email for you, can you sign yourself up to the google group?

oranges_and_apples October 10, 2011 at 7:26 am

The event or the discssion group or both?

oranges_and_apples October 10, 2011 at 7:26 am

Is this the email you want to use (since all the Interrobangs?)? I've
created a google group and will send you an invite!

Fiona Frank December 2, 2011 at 4:34 pm
