Welcome to Bitch Lit, the blog about one woman’s examination of all things frothy, frivolous, and feminist!
Born out of a Women’s Studies course in 2009, this blog strives to define the broad title of “chick-lit” that is bestowed upon many a candy coated book. Additionally, this blog aims to explore the themes, meaning, and importance of “chick-lit” to those who read it, write it, and market it. Above all, this blog strives to have fun and find time to enjoy this pink-splashed and frothy group of women’s literature.
Bitch Lit is maintained by Christine, a thirty-something graduate student. Christine completed her Honors degree in Women’s Studies and Feminist Research at the University of Western Ontario in 2010. After spending a year working she has decided to return to school to study chick lit and women’s literature academically at Wilfrid Laurier University.
When she isn’t reading or in class, Christine can be found spending quality time with Netflix and a glass of wine. She resides in Waterloo, Ontario with her partner and two cats.
