International Women’s Day 2017

We’ve had some of our most success, interaction, and made the most friends through being feminists. Which is interesting, I suppose, since many people have an opposite experience on the Internet.

Regardless, happy International Women’s Day!

In case you weren’t aware, the old Feminist Friday posts that we were a part of aren’t dead yet, and you can find them going on on Part-Time Monster:

In the past, I’ve talked a bit more about that project and the original e-book that came out of it:

The e-book is no longer on Amazon, I don’t think, but is still up on Smashwords. I don’t think any later ones were ever pulled together, which is too bad, but perhaps we’ll all get together and do more with it. I know I have other plans for projects like this, expect more on that soon!

For now, what would you like to see coming out of Feminist Fridays? Let me know in the comments below!

Happy International Women’s Day… Have More Deadpool?

Happy International Women’s Day! In past years, we might have shared a post like this one: A Little Something for International Women’s Day, March 8th. However, Deadpool has given a whole new meaning to the day, it seems… one everyone seemed to be thinking about today, if my Facebook feed was any indication.

Of course, one of my favorite takeaways from Deadpool was this:

Deadpool Surprised poster

That’s basically my favorite emoji, and if they replaced it with Deadpool that would be perfectly fine with me…

But the big Deadpool news today is, of course, that the How it Should Have Ended for Deadpool came out today… After the jump!

A Little Something for International Women’s Day, March 8th

Maybe you’ve been following them, maybe you’ve been a part of the conversation. Maybe you just remember one of our most popular posts here and wondered what it was about. Well, last year’s Feminist Friday posts from here and other blogs have been published in an e-book!

The cover! It's a real thing!

The cover! It’s a real thing!

You can find the book, available March 8, on Amazon for $0.99. They wouldn’t let us run it for free, so we’ve decided that any proceeds will go to a charity to be determined. There is also a free version available on Smashwords.

As an e-book, all of the links are active, so you can go from pages in the book to the original blog posts, where you can still like, comment, share – all the good stuff. If you have not engaged with these posts before, be prepared! Most of them had well over 50 comments, some incredibly long and thoughtful. Some probably worthy of being their own blog posts…

The original post I wrote for it was about the Purpose of Education, which has been spruced up to include data from the poll at the end! Turning towards education for a bit made sense, as it was a topic which kept coming up in the comments of previous posts. I also added a lot of an international perspective, by referencing the documentary Girl Rising quite a bit!

We’ve written about Education a few other times here on the blog, here’s a few other good ones to take a look at:

Also, we have a whole category here on Comparative Geeks about Feminism, take a look:

One last thing. The cover was the design work of one Jennifer Miller, please check her out and if you need graphic design work, look her up for sure! And a big thank you to Natacha Guyot of Science Fiction, Transmedia & Fandom for the editing and organizing work!
