It’s almost the end of February…

This is your regular reminder to submit to the Down Under Feminists Carnival.

The next edition of the Down Under Feminists Carnival is planned for 5 March, 2017, and will be hosted by Ju Transcendancing at The Conversationalist. Submissions to transcendancing [at] gmail [dot] com.

Submissions must be of posts of feminist interest by writers from Australia and New Zealand that were published in February. Submissions are due on 2 March at the latest, but it’ll be easier on Ju if you submit sooner rather than later. So submit early and often, please, and spread the word!

We of course took a break from the Carnival last month. Thanks so much to those who have volunteered to host future editions and keep DUFC going – it is really a collaborative community project. If you’ve ever thought about being a DUFC host, now’s the time to contact me – here’s the DUFC contact form and here is a list of future carnivals that have already been planned (pick any month that isn’t on that list). You’ll get submissions to help you out and I am of course on hand for anything you need.

Check out the Down Under Feminists Carnival homepage for more information.

Volunteer to host the Down Under Feminists Carnival!

The Carnival will be taking a break this month – that is, there will be no carnival published at the start of February. Volunteers are needed to host the Carnival for all subsequent slots in 2017. If you’ve ever thought about being a DUFC host, now’s the time to contact me – here’s the DUFC contact form. You’ll get submissions to help you out and I am of course on hand for anything you need. Hopefully we can fill up all those hosting slots and the break will only last the month!

One Hundred and Fourth Edition @ Opinions @ bluebec.com

2 January 2017: At Opinions @ bluebec.com, Rebecca shares DUFC #104! She writes of the first carnival of 2017:

Well technically it’s posts relating to feminism from December 2016, but let’s celebrate the end of that dumpster fire of a year and hope that we can find the strength and love to fight the creeping fascism around our region and the world for this year.  May all our favourite celebrities, friends and family members live at least another 5+ years and we get all the cuddly animal love that we want.
