Blog for International Women’s Day THIS MONDAY, March 8!
As many of you know, Gender Across Borders is planning the first-ever Blog for International Women’s Day [IWD] and it’s just around the corner. Blog for IWD is only three days away–this Monday, March 8. The U.N. theme for International Women’s Day is “Equal rights, equal opportunity: Progress for all/” Based off of that theme, we’re asking bloggers to write posts this Monday on their blogs about IWD, and think about the following ideas:
*What does “equal rights for all” mean to you?
*Describe a particular organization, person, or moment in history that helped to mobilize a meaningful change in equal rights for all.
We’ll be reading the answers to these questions from blogs who signed up for Blog for IWD (click here for the full blog directory)–and we’ll also live-blog what some of you are saying about equal rights. In addition to our live-blogging throughout the day, Gender Across Borders has some exciting things planned . . . so, stay tuned!
We have about eighty blogs signed up right now, and there’s always room for more. Tell your blogger friends about Blog for IWD (they can sign up for it here), and tell your Twitter friends that they can tweet their responses about equal rights using the hashtag #BlogforIWD.
We hope you enjoy the day as much as we will. If you have any questions or concerns regarding Blog for IWD, feel free to respond to this email (or write to email@example.com).
Thanks, and we’ll see you on Monday!
