Welcome to the 22nd exploration of the Planet of the Savage Strident DKos Feminist Supervixens!

This week: Arty Shots.

"Feminist Supervixens" of every sex and gender are invited to participate in this feminists' circle.  Our goal is to build a vibrant community of feminists here on Daily Kos.  The emphasis here is on camaraderie and support, so if you're looking for an argument, we suggest that you go instead to room 12A, just along the corridor.

Previous "episodes" in this diary series have been written by hrh, with guest-host diaries from mem from somerville, Elise, righteousbabe, irishwitch, and aphra behn. Some more guest-hosts are waiting in the wings. Feminists who are interested in being a guest-host can email hrh at: feministsupervixens (AT)

Tonight it's grim and rainy outside, and I think a dose of beauteous glamour is called for.  So I'm pulling an "Al Rodgers" and treating you Supervixens to some of the pics I have on my wall.  Yes, feminists like pinups of women too.  At least, this one does - you can call it "The Female Gaze" :-)

You can tell which photographers I'm a particular fan of:

Bettie Page, by Bunny Yeager (an excellent pinup in her own right)

So who/what's on YOUR bulletin board, Supervixens?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
