A year of feminist classics

Feminist Classics

I don’t do resolutions, but here’s something of interest for the year: a Year of Feminist Classics blogging project. Operating along the lines of an informal blogging-reading group, each month a different feminist text will form the subject of discussions on the blog – the reading list is an interesting and varied selection of classic feminist texts (about half of which I’ve read, some only in part, several which I’ve intended to read but never quite gotten round to, and others which I hadn’t thought to but am now thoroughly looking forward to reading this year). Anyone can participate and add their blog; I hope to do so, as it will be interesting to read a range of feminist perspectives on and responses to these texts, as well as writing about my own thoughts on these texts.

First up this month is Mary Wollstonecraft’s A Vindication of the Rights of Woman. (I’ll be getting stuck in just as soon as I’ve dealt with the pre-term to-do list that seems to have taken on a life of its own in my holiday absence…)

Happy 2011!
