- Anne-Marie Slaughter in the Atlantic: “Women Still Can’t Have It All.” Can Anyone? | Bitch Media: “The very notion of having “it all” sounds so ludicrous to me that I can’t help but put it in quotes.”
- Catch-22: Tech Blogging As a Woman – “The catch-22 here is that if I choose to blend in, then people like the commenters above assume that everything they see was written by men, and use that as an excuse to dismiss the concerns of women in the tech industry – because apparently, we don’t contribute and thus don’t matter. If I choose to not blend in, I’m dismissed as bringing up gender when it’s irrelevant (or worse, harassed by people who’ve decided gender is relevant).”
- The Mother of All Girls’ Books – The secret subversiveness of Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women:”It is, indeed, subversive, sustained by an almost unbearable tension between action and commentary and between its fiction and Alcott’s reality.”
- Destructoid Writer Takes Aim at Felicia Day, Shoots Himself in the Foot | The Mary Sue: “Certainly it hasn’t been the kind of environment that you’d, say, want to bumble into by means of bashing one of the most beloved women in geek culture.”
- The Wreck Of The S.S. Censorship (Or, “How Writers Steer Their Careers Into The Rocks”) : “It’s about how one dude misread who his audience is — one assumes he thought the audience was just a bunch of high-fiving bro-heims like himself, when really, uh-oh, the audience has women in it, too.”
