Not sure if I have the time to dedicate to this right now, but I'm definitely interested!

Ditto! I'm glad the deadline for signups is pretty far away.

Awesome!  This is the swap that's finally going to get me off my swappy ass and join in on one of these things.

I'm so in!

Hurray for youse!  I am so glad to find people who'd be into this swap!!

Selkie - Thanks a ton for putting up the definition of feminism and being really clear about where you're coming from!

TwistedRedhead - yay for women's studies and I really hope you find time to join!!

ohsweetie - thanks so much.  I was trying to be as inclusive as I could be.  Most of my friends are full on feminists (like auntiem!!) but there all similarily between them ends!!

Let me know if you need anything from me apart from what's already up here.  And looking forward to getting to know each of you and your unique brand of feminsm soon.  Yay!

I just signed up!  this is a great idea, thanks for organizing.

The interpretations are going to be great.  I've only though of feminism and crafting together in the sense of reclaiming lost space and holding onto traditional woman-space.  I've not thought of making feminist crafts.

I can't wait for this one---

I've been looking for a swap like this for a long time.
However, I don't like having to differentiate between waves, and it seems like self-labeling feminists are such a minority nowadays-- everyone's afraid of using the "f word."

I'm just someone who demands equality in every aspect of her life and expects to be able to make her own choices, from what to think to what to wear and what to do in her life and in her bed.... 
And just for fun- I read this recently and got pissed off and decided to denounce PJ Harvey:

*source-Bust magazine's interview with her* "I dont ever think about [feminism]. I mean, it doesn't cross my mind. I certainly dont think in terms of gender when I'm writing songs, and I never had any problems as the result of being female that I couldn't get over. Maybe I'm not thankful for the things that have gone before me, you know. But I don't see that there's any need to be aware of being a woman in this business. It just seems a waste of time." She added, "I don't offer [support] specifically to women; I offer it to people who write music. That's a lot of men."

Nothin' worth doing ever comes easy.

I love men. They make such good pets!  Grin

Especially when they are housebroken Smiley

mimikachu - I have to admit that I didn't read that interview because I honestly don't know who PJHarvey is (I usually have never heard of most of the musicians they interview - embarrasing fact) Do you remember what month it was in so I can find it? I find it really hard to believe that she hasn't encountered gender bias in the music biz.

"i'll love you and be your catfish friend!"

working on my questionare - I need a clarification:
for favorite feminist icon - do we put the feminists who's politics we most align with or the women we admire because they were "feminists" before the term was even coined? (for example Nora Zeale Hurston)
