We live in a world that tells us to focus on male relationships, male economics, and male artists. Female-female relationships are a central part of feminism. What are you doing to live a woman-centric life? If you want to do more but cannot, what are the barriers stopping you? Including but not limited to:

- Only consuming art by women. Reading books by women, music by women, films directed by/cinematography by women, etc.
- Learning the history and stories of women different from you (in race, class, sexuality, other things)
- Prioritizing friendships and relationships with women.
- Businesses by women.
- Learning and teaching skills women have been excluded from. For example, plumbing, carpentry, shooting, etc.

Looking forward to hearing from you nonas.

I'll start. I've made it my goal to make the majority of the new books I've read this year to be either by women or about feminism or women's history. Reading about what women have done has been so eye opening because standard man history has been that women have basically not done anything, mostly because of anti-women reasons or libfem "women CHOSE to not go into anything outside of housewifery." It's depressing sometimes realizing that things have sometimes even been better in the past than they are now, but you can also look at it as inspiring because it means we don't have to accept the way things are today and we can aim for a previous better goal and beyond.

Another thing is focusing on art by women. So I'm trying to only or mostly listen to music that is performed by women and written by women. I've found a ton of new amazing music and I'm trying to make my library full of as many women as possible, especially if it's all-women groups. I love to see women collaboration. It's also been sad a bit because you see how hard it's been for women to write, let alone to get a bunch of women together to write and perform. I try to make sure there's a mix of artists from the past, to celebrate our history, and the present, to support vulnerable young artists.

So neo-lesbian feminism

I’ve done the same thing as anon above but I don’t make any exceptions. I tossed all the music I used to love in high school and college since it was all men and am rebuilding a playlist of music written by women. It’s shockingly hard to find music in the genre I like that’s actually written and not just performed by women so I haven’t been listening to much music at all for the past couple years which sucks. I just can’t take another instance of having to trash a beloved song or album because the moid was a pedo or a rapist or some other shit. I refuse to go through that even one more time.

Once I switched to focusing on music written by women and not just performed by women, it got much harder to find stuff. In metal most articles about women are about women-fronted bands. Thankfully I've found some great rock all-women or mostly-women bands where a woman is the songwriter and even discovered new genres. I like looking for bands because most of the women artists shilled in pop music are solo artists, and what I liked about male bands was the sense of camaraderie. That narrows it even more but at least in rock there are a lot of all-women or majority-women bands.

I try to be practical for this outside of music because some fields are so male-dominated there are no options for women. ROM hacking is almost entirely men, so I treat it like a tactical decision to get as much knowledge as I can and then help other women who might be newbies.

Can you please share? I’d really appreciate it, I’m also into rock but I’m terrible at finding new stuff. The one band I found recently that I liked pretty well is called Magneta Lane, but it took me so long to find and I’m too busy lately to spend hours digging like I used to.

I don’t know if I have “good taste” lol but I’ve really enjoyed these:

tricot is a Japanese math rock band with female vocalist/songwriter, female guitarist, female bassist, male drummer. Their black album from 2020 is really good and shows they can still make good music despite having been around since 2013.

Band-Maid is a j-rock/metal all female band. Their gimmick is performing in maid outfits which is scrotey but their music is really fun and they’re great instrumentalists.

Meet me @ the altar is an all female all black pop punk band. One of their members is gnc and not nb which gives me hope. They’re really on the pop side of pop punk but that’s more my style anyway.

And besides that there’s older bands like Bikini Kill, Sleater-Kinny, the Runaways. Japanese rock seems promising in having a lot of all female rock bands, like there’s OOIOO which is experimental rock and kind of weird. If you look beyond English rock, I think it gets easier. I’ve only just started exploring Latin American rock, too.

ntayrt but if you're into prog, i've been enjoying Ars Nova lately. Japanese band that are heavily inspired by ELP but more symphonic. they were formed in the 90s but are still going now, they were originally three women however they did add some male band members in recent years but still woman-led.

It's one thing to listen to women artists, but I'm more depressed by how few women own record labels. In general, the more ownership is involved in something, the fewer women there are. Even in places where it's mostly women, you'll still see a ton of men as ceos. Fashion is one example. And with all these global conglomerates, it's even harder to find women who are actually at the very top. Trying to center women has shown me how much of what we have is only the illusion of power. And now that everyone hates girlboss feminism, I wonder how many gen zs even have the ambition to start and lead organizations. How much does it mean to support women when a man is always profiting off her?

I'm interested too, I really want something like this. I'm not attracted to men at all (and I don't think I'm romantically/sexually interested in women either), but I want a life partner.

I know some people attempting to start a friend house, I don’t see why you couldn’t do something like that but only inviting or accepting women. The harder part is making strong and long lasting female friendships where they don’t end up wanting to pair off. I think in the gay community it’s easier to find women who would be open to this idea.

I’m trying to learn handyman stuff so I don’t have to rely on a mostly male population to do it for me, and hopefully I can do it for other women or teach them how to do it. I’m starting really small by learning the names of things around my place, but it’s genuinely empowering. Why didn’t jezebel and all those other feminist magazines talk about this? Instead it was all “makeup is empowering,” “sending nudes of your postpartum body is empowering,” like beauty is fading and knowledge is forever.

I love fixing and building things but my dad never wanted to teach me because he loves doing those things for me and likewise with my ex. Ever since I got my own place, I've been teaching myself and loving the feeling of accomplishment.
How are you learning? At the moment I am using youtube + winging it but want to take a course for basic home plumbing and electrics. I saw there are some woman-led DIY courses in my city but unfortunately very expensive.
