Reclaiming The F Word: New Edition

Dear friends,

A new edition of Reclaiming The F Word is coming out in June 2013!


It has an updated preface by myself and Kristin Aune which discusses developments in feminism since the first edition, in 2010.

Anyway, for fun I bunged the preface into a wordle and this is what came out!

The first thing you’ll notice is the new cover. It keeps the suffragette colours of purple and green but has a more graphic design. I really like it.

We’ve also changed our sub-title from “The New Feminist Movement” to “Feminism Today”. I also really like this too, as it relfects our aim to try, as best as we can, to give an overview of current feminist issues, debates and activism to those who are unfamiliar with feminism today and who want to know more.

I’ll try to write more about it when I have time. Most of it was written whilst breastfeeding my baby (like this blog post was). Luckily he liked to nurse a lot so I rigged up a system with me at the computer with him on my lap on a pillow. I felt a little smug when a relative kindly said “you won’t have much time for writing now then” and I replied “well actually we’ve just finished a new edition…”

I’d blogged briefly about writing the last edition under the writing tag. I will post up more posts from our now defunct book website (long story short: bit of a cock up with domains expiring suddenly without us knowing).

Anyway, if anyone has any questions about it, tweet me @cathredfern or message me on Facebook if we’re friends, and I’ll answer them here.

Thanks for your support.
