We have open discussions of gender inequality and what to do about it for Feminist Friday as often as we’re able. This is something that started as a conversation between three bloggers in December, 2013, and turned into a project in late March.
Here’s how it works. Someone writes a post to start the discussion, and we discuss it. When we miss a week, I figure out how to start it rolling again. As of June 3, we’ve had discussions hosted on 5 different blogs, and some of the comment threads are impressive. This is a chronological list of the discussion posts we’ve published so far.
These links is just to get the page started. Eventually, I’ll add other links. These posts have referenced tons of other blogs, and this discussion has inspired quite a few other bloggers to post about gender inequality. It will all be collected here one day.
All these posts are written by me and published at Sourcerer unless otherwise noted. Author links go to Twitter accounts.
