Women on Wednesday #5

/ 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.
