Virginia Sole-Smith Wants Us To Drop The Guilt Over Family Dinner: Sole-Smith has made it her work to help parents to interrogate their body hangups and relax their perfectionism around eating. This year, more than ever, we need to hear it. by SARA B. FRANKLIN

And this year, Feminist Philosophy Quarterly ( a journal I helped found and co-edited for a few years) published a special issue on Feminism and Food. This collection of anonymously peer-reviewed articles is the result of the call for papers inspired by the 2019 meeting of the Canadian Society for Women in Philosophy hosted by the University of Guelph, on the topic of feminism and food.

Did you know there was a feminist food club? I didn’t either. I don’t know if this yummy looking banana and blueberry French toast is particularly feminist but I might make some this week for #FrenchToastFriday.
