We talked to a couple of colleague feminist bloggers about poker and gender. Here's what they have to say.

Julie Zeilinger – The FBomb



Julie Zeilinger calls herself “one of the proudest teenage feminists of all”, which isn’t saying a little. She describes how the constant bad weather and non existing city life of her home town have made her comfortable with expressing her points of view loudly. Certainly not a bad upbringing, I’d say.

A poker home game, name three women-rights activist (famous or unknown)you would invite, and why?

Which US politician do you think would be best at bluffing?





Do men hold an advantage against women in games such as poker?


Would you mind dropping a line of encouragement to all our poker sisters out there?

Amy Rubinson – Appetite For Equal Rights

Amy Rubinson created the feminist blog Appetite For Equal Rights in 2008 to “counter the lack of coverage of women's issues provided by mainstream media”, obviously a task just as enormous as necessary. As a fellow feminist blogger, Lady Junkie fully subscribes to Amy’s view that “feminist blogging is a way of challenging the patriarchy by giving women the voices they need but are often deprived of”.
