****Most of the "Blog Awards" out there (that recognize women's contributions) focus around those dreaded "Mommy Bloggers" --what women should be doing right? Writing about the grocery store, whining about their husbands and changing diapers and leaving the politics to the men. Bleh! That interests me as much as having acupuncture on my eyeballs.
FINALLY, blog recognition that focuses on the few, the brave and the proud...Women POLITICAL/NEWS bloggers!
"Who says women don't like to talk about politics? We have identified over 2000 women who publish political commentary on more than 800 blogs and websites. Coming soon will be our directory of women bloggers and commentators who write about politics. You'll be able to find new perspectives from other women and vote for your favorites.
During Women’s History Month, help make women’s voices heard.
WVWV is honoring those women that have utilized the internet to amplify their voices.
Nominate your favorite blogger by March 21, then check back to vote for your favorite among our top 10 women bloggers.
Remember to visit WVWV.org later in the month to vote for your favorite in the first round." (source)
I am not linking this simply because I happen to be one of those female political bloggers, but because I'm stoked that there is actually some recognition for the women that choose to get their hands dirty in something other than their kids' mudpies! ;)
