Return to Krista's Korner

"Each of us must come to care about everyone else's children. We must recognize that the well being of our own children is intimately linked to the well being of all other people's children. After all, when one of our children needs life-saving surgery, someone else's child will perform it. When one of our children is harmed by violence, someone else's child will commit it. The good life for our own children can be secured only if it is also secured for all other people's children. But to work for the well being of all children is not just a practical matter-- it is also right!" - Lilian G. Katz, Phd.

Looking for Feminist Nominations

The best of ‘07: Femmobolsho nominations, please! at Hoyden About Town:

"Lauredhel and I decided last night that we would like to do a retrospective of 2007’s best feminist blogging, because there’s been some great stuff written this year (as there is every year) by all the passionate bloggers out there who identify as feminists and feminist allies. So here’s a chance to go over everything you bookmarked in your browser or starred in your feedreader over the year, and share your absolute favourites. (Or go back over the various carnivals and pick out the ones you still remember vividly, perhaps).11. tigtog: I expect to end up with a mix of favourites from blogs that people read every day and posts that people found (via those blogs) from bloggers who they don’t normally read as much but still vividly remember. It’s all good. [↩]

We’d also like to encourage you to spruik your own wares - so don’t be shy, please: self-nominations are not about tooting your horn as one of THE best posts of the year, just about letting us know about YOUR best post for the year. Not necessarily the most popular post, because that can be all about the topicality of a particular day or week, but what you personally are proudest of as a piece of writing or creative commentary, whether it’s a piece about outrage or disgust or despair or inspiration or"
I don't really write from a feminist perspective, although I consider myself one. I am sure there are undiscovered gems out there. Please go check out Hoyden About Town and nominate a post that caught your eye and made you think.
