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?
Some of us try.ReplyDelete
Will do Blue Gal, I agree 100%. The more voices in the world the better says IReplyDelete
Um, take back the blogs seems to ME to be a gender neutral issue.ReplyDelete
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.
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*
What might I, a ma-an, do to help?ReplyDelete
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...
BG, I'm sure there are some who would like for me to STFU ... but I refuse ... 'cause I'm just that kind'a grrl! haReplyDelete
