Welcome to Maoist Orange Cake. Each week one of our Divas posts a thoughtful (but not necessarily serious) essay on whatever calls forth her Voice or strikes her Fancy. We invite you to join us wherever the discussion leads.
Motto of the MOC: Sincere, yes. Serious? Never!

"I would also like to add that ‘Maoist Orange Cake is possibly the best name for a blog ever. Just my twopence." -- The Sixth Carnival of Radical Feminists, 1 October 2007

The Twelfth Carnival of Radical Feminists is up at The Burning Times blog and mentions one of our posts, Helen 'Wheels' Keller, for recommendation. Orangeists spreading our zest!

I am this month's host of the 14th Carnival of Radical Feminists. Aside from spreading the news about that in general here, I want to draw attention to the fact that one of our divas, Kat, has a submission up at the Carnival: It's the post from BitchCraft entitled Housework, Gender, Being a "Wife". Good work, Kat! -- Maggie Jochild

It can be viewed (and, if you are inspired, altered/improved upon at ICHC Vote Page.

Go for it!
