For further reading about femslash (and especially for an intersectional reading about it), I highly recommend Rukmini Pande’s and Swati Moitra’s work.

We seek to locate the ways in which such queer fans grapple with critiques of misogyny and homophobia in popular cultural texts and online spaces, both in relation to and in conjunction with the problematics of race and racial identity, and thereby address this existing lacuna in contemporary fan studies. We will locate this discussion within a consideration of existing scholarship on femslash and its relationship to other genres of media fandom activity. Following that, we will also consider the ways in which race has been engaged within certain key femslash fandoms in order to historicize our understanding of the same.
