Coincidence? I think not.

NO that's not the actual logo, folks.

There are not enough women writing about politics in the blogosphere. Look at the signatories of this important letter. I count about, what, 4% female?

Next weekend is Take Back The Blog. More on this after Tuesday's Primary, but I wanted my regular readers to have advance notice.

I'm organizing TBTB this year. I guess Arianna was busy.

Please think about ways that we can encourage more women who are already blogging, about their kids, their knitting, whatever (and you know I blog about that stuff here too sometimes, so I'm not judging) to take a leap and write about what can change this country for the better.

Is it about feeling safe to do so? Ya think?

  2. Um, take back the blogs seems to ME to be a gender neutral issue.

    But if there's a need for you, or anyone, to declare a lack of women's voices in the blogosphere, then get on it. I'll champion anything I agree with!!! *G*

    I read anything that interests me.

    I'm not much into knitting, though.

    But I read you. ;-)

    I'm REAL disappointed with two SUPPOSED major blogs by women I gotta tell ya.

    FDL. Digby.

    Failed me, as a progressive, and as I share and discuss with my wife who agrees, they fail women like Shilary and Gerry Ferraro failed women.

    But it seems I keep finding OTHER blogs to read.

    But EmptyWheel still rocks when she's on the trail of injustice. Phoenix Woman, too. Shakespeare's Sister. A few others I forget for now . . . .

    N you've pointed me to a few now and then again.

    Yer in my 5. Keep talking . . . . there's a lot to talk about, doncha think? *G*

    Thanks for your voice. The panties? My wife's got some I like . . . n they fit. *G*

  3. What might I, a ma-an, do to help?

    A knight's errand! I shall scour the tubes and deliver forthwith, a score of fresh, well a couple of... at least ONE voice to join the chorus.

    By your leave...
