Jessica leaves Feministing

It’s been a sad little while for the feminist blogosphere. First JJ, of Unrepentant Old Hippie, quit, and now Jessica Valenti has announced that she’s leaving Feministing.

In hindsight, this looks inevitable. Jessica had significantly stepped back from Feministing after her daughter was born in August. Samhita et. al. had basically succeeded Jessica after that time. Jessica’s reasons for (officially) moving on now are basically to make way for other feminists to step in. Despite Jessica moving on, Feministing will still continue to run and blog.

This saddens me. Feministing was on my blogroll from the very start of this blog, and Jessica was on of the bloggers whose posts pushed me into blogging. With all that in mind, good luck after Feministing, Jessica.
