- A couple of our favorite ladies were interviewed in a couple of great lady blogs this week: Chris Bobel spoke with Adina Nack of Girl with Pen about her new book, New Blood: Third-Wave Feminism and the Politics of Menstruation (Rutgers University Press, 2010), and Shameless interviewed Madeleine Shaw and Suzanne Siemens of Lunapads.
- Dr. Petra Boynton pointed us to this engaging discussion of the seemingly endless debates over usage of the word vagina, noting that often “those who feel it doesn’t matter what we call sex, our genitals, or experiences are already in a privileged place.”
- Our Bodies, Our Blog rounds up the news about tenofovir gel, a vaginal microbicide that has the potential to reduce the spread of HIV/AIDS through sexual contact.
- Ms. Magazine’s Blog points out that Sarah Palin’s animal role model, the mama grizzly, is pro-choice. (Sarah Palin is not pro-choice.)
