From Bombay to Tokyo, from dealing with Christmas to God's choice of publishing method ...

Friday Femmes Fatales No 36 (Women Bloggers)

Ten new (to me) female bloggers, ten top posts, on my way to 400. It answers the question: where are all the female bloggers?

First the stunning Within/Without, on which Neha posts about working with street girls in Bombay. Also check out the post below about a child welfare official who employed am 11-year-old maid!

On Conversations with Dina, a report from the Global Voices Summit and Rebecca posts her impressions of the Les Blogs conference.

Tokyo Girl provides a deadpan but highly illuminating account of gender/national differences revealed at a Swedish housewarming party. Staying on the national customs side, on Frizzy Logic an explanation of a German Christmas tradition.

Then, on the British media, Sashinka reports back from a taping of Have I Got News for You.

Turning personal, on This, That and the Mother Thing, Anita is blogging day by day about dealing with a miscarriage.

Less seriously, Masked Mom suggests taking those dog days of February and adding them to December, while on Little Red Boat, Christmas looms as a menacing wave.

On This Too, Jean meditates on order and disorder, while (at the top as I write), Natalie on Augustine’s Blog wonders if God would have chosen to be self-published.


You can find the last edition of Femmes Fatales here.

Nominations (including self-nominations) for Femmes Fatales are also hugely welcome – I’ll probably get to you eventually anyway, but why not hurry along the process?
