Femme Friday: Translated Poets

Translation is never easy but I have a feeling that translating poetry is even more difficult than normal. There is the cadence of the poem and all the hidden meanings behind word usage to consider. I don't envy a translator in general, but it must take a special kind of professional to throw themselves into... Continue Reading →

Femme Friday: Superheroine update!

I wrote about superheroes about a year and a half ago here. Mostly, I went into some of my favorite comic book superheroines at the time but have since found some more favorites and some new women to check out. Headliners I already love: Spider-Woman - cancelled. I had found her during the 3 volume run... Continue Reading →

FF: 3 Authors I Need to Binge

If you’re new around here, Femme Friday was begun by Vicky over at Books and Strips. The idea is to highlight some women and femmes, whether they are authors, publishers, running publishing companies, great characters or whatever you want. As both are book blogs, they are generally about femmes and books. I'm also prone to get into... Continue Reading →

FF – Women Leaders

Happy Friday! So, yes, there's a part of me that wants to ignore what's happening in my country today, but I am still hopeful for the future. I know the general theory of what will happen but I also remember Doomsdayers of the last two administrations, so I don't really know how to feel about... Continue Reading →

FF: Book Moments that made my little feminist heart flutter

It's Femme Friday! I normally reserve my list making for Top Ten Tuesdays, but I couldn't help myself. I had just read a few books that made my heart flutter and wanted to share those moments along with some other great ones from throughout the year. I'm not one to flat out call a book feminist because... Continue Reading →

FF – Historical Fiction with WOC protagonists

I don't know about you, but I've seen a lot more historical fiction with white protagonists than with protagonists that are women of color. Now, there's nothing inherently wrong with white protagonists, but if you enjoy reading diversely and historical fiction and do not live in a country where the dominant race is not white,...

FF- International Day to End Violence Against Women

This year's International Day to End Violence Against Women happens to fall on a Friday, so that makes it the perfect Femme Friday topic. These are some books that can help get someone sped up on the history of violence against women. While men do perpetrate violence against each other as well, this day is... Continue Reading →

FF -Native American Heritage Month

I may not be completely horrible about reading diversely, but I have been negligent on my indigenous voices in general. All of these books were already on my TBR, but I haven't read them yet.              I plan to read some of them soon and others a little later, but I want to have... Continue Reading →

FF – In Honor of Veteran’s Day

I've only read one book about women in the military and this Corsets To Camouflage: Women And War - Kate Adie, which isn't particularly American for me to lean on for this holiday. The book does lean on the British experience, but it goes a long way (if I recall correctly because it's been years... Continue Reading →
