Ten great posts from 10 new (to me) women bloggers. It is here every Friday (more or less .. sorry about last week!)
Starting with the highly topical, Sherrilyn Ifill on Blackprof.com has an interesting take on the Supreme Court's ruling on Bush's power grab. It seems the splits in US society are being reflected on the court. Staying with the US, on Boiling Over, Michaela B. Reid, the "angry cartoonist", is offering a blackly comic take on Ann Coulter.
And with Wimbledon on, now's a good time to point to Kim Pearson's Blogher site. She's been celebrating the efforts of Billie Jean King, and finds some prominent women today aren't living up to the same standards.
Elle Seymour has been at the launch of an organisation called Enterprising Women, which aims to encourage business to start their own businesses. I was surprised to learn that eight or nine men are starting businesses for each woman — seems a high ratio to me, but maybe I just have lots of enterprising female friends and acquaintances.
Also on the political side (Elle is an avowed Tory blogger), I've just found a blog by a seriously important politician, Margot Wallerstein, an EU commissioner. And it doesn't read at all like she set down her junior researcher to do the whole thing. In this post she's ranging widely, from Sri Lankan conflict to cycling to work.
Kali on MySpace believes that there has to be a whole lot more dancing at the revolution before people will start coming. She believes that over decades she's seen students become more and more captives of the media cartels.
Turning to more positive topics, the blogger at Toad in the Hole has been visiting the US's Humboldt Redwoods State Park. Even the fallen trees are beautiful, she finds. "Trees are possibly the best dead things on the planet, by which I mean they leave the handsomest, best-aging, most community-minded (not to mention useful to humans, of course) corpses."
