In recognition of International Women’s Day today, Angie of One Cat Per Person and Clare and Aisling of Any Other Wedding put out a call for posts by women, about women. In Her Own Words is intended to raise awareness of women’s rights and to celebrate women at a time when it’s increasingly scary to be one. Please read on for a much better description of their efforts and links to this important series.
Big ups to Angie, Clare, and Aisling for putting this on, and a shout-out to Angie’s partner, Joshua Gomby, for designing the banner.
I’m so proud to be participating. You can find my post here.
[And should you have missed it the first time around, here’s a small yet topical piece about my mother.]
In Her Own Words: In Celebration of International Women’s Day 2011 was created to share and celebrate the experiences of women from many walks of life. All day Tuesday, March 8th Any Other Wedding and One Cat Per Person will feature posts written by a collective of intelligent, passionate and opinionated women bloggers from the United States and the United Kingdom. We encourage you to comment and create dialogue as well as visit their respective blogs. The conversation starts here, but it does not need to end here.
