About this blog
Welcome to Pondering Postfeminism, a blog by Sydney researcher and writer Dr Penelope Robinson.
Alongside the exploration of postfeminism as a concept, this blog ponders pop culture, gender, cultural theory, sociology, politics, current events, and anything else that happens to take my fancy.

The image on the banner above is a photograph I took when I was at a feminist conference in Liverpool in the UK in 2009. The building in the foreground is the Blue Coat School, an historic Liverpudlian structure, now an arts venue where the conference was hosted. The background is a billboard from the nearby shopping precinct – I didn’t photoshop the face in there. It’s Twiggy! I loved my short time in Liverpool, a city where the old and the new are excitingly mixed together. I thought the combination of the face of a female icon from the 60s with the building where I presented a paper about “postfeminism in popular culture”, was a fitting image for my blog!
