New Feminist Disability Blog Launched

October 12, 2009

A new blog, FWD/Forward, has recently launched at http://disabledfeminists.com/. It is described thusly:

FWD/Forward is a group blog written by feminists with disabilities. It is a place to discuss disability issues and the intersection between feminism and disability rights activism. The content here ranges from basic information which is designed to introduce people who are new to disability issues or feminism to some core concepts, to more advanced topics, with the goal of promoting discussion, conversation, fellowship, and education.

There are a number of posts up already on a variety of topics. One post that particularly caught my eye was this one on outrage about pre-existing condition exclusions in health insurance, particularly the attention c-sections and domestic violence have recently received as compared to many other conditions that lead to such exclusions.

The blogroll is also well worth exploring; the site contributors explain that it is focused on including blogs “which cover disability issues, or feminist sites which explore disability issues with some frequency.”

    I just added this today. Happily, but with a sigh. My reader is getting out of control.

      Seriously. I’ve had to declare feed reader bankruptcy a couple of times and just start fresh.

    I’d love to be part of the dialogue over there. I am afraid that maybe I’m not feminist enough or disabled enough.😉
