I did! Unfortunately despite my best efforts I was unable to get enough people to continuously submit to it to keep it running for very long. I am unaware of anything that functions in the same capacity on a national level, but I would take a look at NOW’s or the Feminist Majority’s websites and see if they have anything of interest.
Hello friends and followers! As many of you have noticed, its been an exciting and hectic couple of weeks for me. In the last month I have finished finals, finished grad school, packed up my whole life, moved 7 hours away, and started working full-time at a content marketing firm. Unfortunately, all of these life changes have left my with increasingly little time to devote to this blog- and that just is not fair to all of you.
In order to continue to provide great original content on feminism, activism, and everything in between I am going to need some help, and so I am opening up BCIAW for contributors. Those who are chosen to contribute can anticipate sharing in the many benefits of writing for a successful feminist blog- including a chance to have your writing shared with thousands of readers on a regular basis and occasional opportunities to write about and receive some of the products featured here. I am looking in particular to bring on 2-3 diverse and dedicated writers with knowledge of the subject matter covered on this blog. In particular, I am hoping for someone who will propose and execute a series of posts on a particular topic.
Sounds awesome, am I right? To apply, please submit or email in with the following information:
Short Answer Questions (Take as long as you would like to answer):
I will be accepting applications for contributors for the next two weeks- until June 1, 2013. To apply fill out the form above and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any questions about the application process, feel free to ask.
How can you look at a cultural landscape of institutionalized inequality and not be angry, right? I mean, if you’re a genuine ally and all.
And, if you are, you’ll be glad for that anger, because you know that the opposite of anger, for a progressive, is complacence—and there can be no progress if everyone is perfectly complacent with the way things are.
Progress is dependent on people who get angry, because anger—productive anger, motivating anger, directed anger, rational anger—is the root of all progress.
