today. I’m not big on setting aside a single day to recognize the worth and importance of fully 51% of humanity, but nonetheless, happy day! Nadia has written an interesting article on this subject today, based on her thoughts and the responses to an email that she sent out earlier in the week.
I was lucky – my mother is and was a feminist, a business-owner, and an all around great role-model both for me and about the role that women can play in society. That kind of upbringing is fundamental to who I am today. In my life, the event which most clearly marked my development on the relationship between men and women in society was December 6, for sure. By then I was already clearly pro-feminist, but the terrible events of that day (which I remember here annually) served to change the place that these ideas had in my life. From that day on, the idea that women were to be respected as equals in every way was not simply a background thought but an up-front concern. It went from background feeling to an everyday commitment.
that is definitely worthy of much attention: Nadia chez les Internautes. She’s been working out the focus of her blog for a little while now and is starting to really get something cool going. Note that I’m incredibly biased when it comes to Nadia, who is one of the best people I’ve known in my life.
I should also note that the original YULBloggers present last night all sighed wistfully that the other original participant, Ms. Champ herself, couldn’t join us yet again… since of course she actually lives far away now. In a whole other city, a whole other country!
