The 8th Down Under Feminists Carnival is up at stephiepenguin. It's jam packed with fantastic posts, on parenting, and image, and work, and language, and things to make you angry, and because it's her turn to host the carnival, and she will highlight it if she wants to, stephiepenguin has also included some great posts about Asian women. And there's the usual feminist miscellany - you know, the quotidian nonsense that reminds us why we are feminists in the first place. The great holiday reading just what I need on this drizzly windy Taranaki day (and it seems that most of the rest of the country is enjoying similar summer weather).
We will be hosting the 9th Down Under Feminists Carnival here at The Hand Mirror in early February. Check the carnival homepage for guidelines (roughly, anything feminist, broadly interpreted, written by anyone down under, or from down under, broadly interpreted). When you read an interesting post, submit it using the Down Under Feminists Carnival submission form. It would be lovely to get posts from new and/or not-so-well-known bloggers, as well as from the usual suspects.
Carnival founder and Hoyden Lauredhel is looking for hosts for future carnivals. If you would like to host the carnival, contact her at her gmail address. Her e-mail handle is lauredhelhoyden. Or you can contact her via the form at Hoyden About Town. You don't need to run a "feminist" blog to host the carnival - seeing the world from a feminist point of view is what the carnival celebrates, and if that's what you do, then perhaps you might consider helping with the carnival.
