GAB Book Giveaway!

May 25, 2010

Hi GAB readers! I’m very excited to announce our first giveaway!

Try to Remember is the debut novel from award-winning poet and expert in US immigration and asylum law Iris Gomez. The novel tells the story of Gabriela, a Latina daughter who attempts to sustain her family as her father battles with mental illness after immigrating to the United States. In light of the recent anti-immigrant law in Arizona, and the feminist community’s response to it, the timing of this giveaway could not be more appropriate.

This is not only your chance to win a free book, but your chance to give us some feedback on the site! In order to enter yourself for the giveaway, please leave a comment below with your thoughts on GAB: what you like, what you would like to see more of, etc.

To enter yourself more than once, mention us in a tweet with your comments (@GABblog) or leave a comment on our Facebook wall.

We will pick two winners randomly on Friday morning at 10 am CST.

Update: our winners have been picked in this post. Because the giveaway is over, we have closed the comments for this post. We plan to do more giveaways in the future.

    It’s not for the free book, but for the feedback 🙂
    I started following this blog on twitter soon after I joined it last summer. I find myself clicking the links you post often. You provide a good source of information, leaving out the nonsense. Keep up the good work.

    GAB is outstanding for its broad explorations of topics that need consistent exposure. I’ve learned a lot about issues through this site, and feel very special for being given the opportunity to write about a couple of topics for GAB, too. Immigration is especially important to me, and I respect GAB’s attention to this topic 🙂

    I started following GAB via twitter and it was a wonderful decision. I often find myself retweeting articles because I find them quite compelling. I also like that GAB covers a wide range of subjects from entertainment (I really enjoyed the women singers piece recently) to human rights issues. Honestly, what I can say is keep up the good work.

    GAB is one of my favorite FB friends and websites. It helps me feel connected to the outside world when I’ve been locked down at my desk all day. Regardless of the nature of the stories shared, I always feel hopeful after visiting the site. It makes me realize that I can do something–if it is just sharing what is printed on the screen. Thank you for keeping this site alive and lively!

    I have GAB linked under “Blogs I Read Regularly” on the sidebar of my blog:
    http://bonniesbooks.blogspot.com/
    That way, I always know when anything new is posted, and I check several times a day.

    GAB helps me keep up with — and find out about — issues important to women. That’s especially important to me because I’m writing a book related to both women’s issues and the way women are helping and supporting each other through social networks and blogs.

    Wow, this book sounds perfect for me…Not only am I a feminist and a book-lover, I’m a double major in Psychology and Spanish (with a minor in Family Studies). I found this blog on Tumblr and I’m really glad I did. I especially enjoy the international stories and issues because even though there are still boundaries to be crossed and strides to be made in terms of feminism in the United States, it’s important to have a global perspective and remember how far we have to go to achieve equality.

    GAB has quickly become my favorite blog. It is so important to link feminism with the international community, especially with the issues plaguing the women of the global South – those who have not had a voice via the online platform before – and I become more encouraged and hopeful for the future of the international women’s/feminist movement when I read this blog. The broad variety of topics and the interaction with the readers is an amazing contribution to the movement. Thank you, Gender Across Boarders, and keep up the good work!

    I would love to be entered. I love GAB for bringing so many great articles and issues to my attention. Such an incredible blog. I have been reading a lot on women’s and gender studies and here you bring up related and new issues that are so important. Thanks!

    I like that you are addressing things on a global level and can appeal to people in different countries who have the very same issues.
