Women on Wednesday #2

/ posted in: FeminismWomen on Wednesday

For those of us who follow a lot of news about women, it can seem like a never ending list of gloom and doom.  Sometimes we need to remember that women are doing great things!  That’s the idea behind this new feature.

Every Wednesday I’ll feature some news, articles, and blog posts that are positive about women.  To do this I need your help too.  Link up posts that you have about women.  It could be reviews of a book with a female author, a discussion on a news article you saw, a blog post about important women now or in history, or anything else to show the world that we are able to lift up and support each other.

I’ll be featuring some of the linked up posts the next week, pinning all of the posts to the Women on Wednesday Pinterest board, and spreading the love for our links on Twitter.

When Teaching Your Daughters about Gender Equality is No Longer Enough (Guest Post by Benjamin L. Corey)

“I’ve learned my lesson on the dangers of going to a church that doesn’t affirm equality of women. Instead of dismissing it as a “disputable matter” in an attempt to keep a faux version of peace, I now know this isn’t a disputable matter at all—not for me. Not for my family.”

This is a great post on ways that men can support equality for women.
