comments

There are no cut-and-dried rules to commenting on our blog.

Each contributor moderates the comments on her or his own posts (with the exception of guest posts, which are usually moderated by Miranda), at her or his own pace. We’re all pretty busy, so be patient.

We love getting comments that spark interesting dialogue and respectfully challenge or add to our ideas. We don’t, however, love comments which are inflammatory, sexist, anti-feminist, racist, sizeist, ableist, homophobic, transphobic, ageist, or any combination thereof. Your comment will certainly get deleted if it is any of these things.

This is a space for us to express our ideas. As such, we reserve the right to block your comment at our discretion. We aren’t scared of dialogue and controversy, but we do like to shy away from conversations that waste our time.

If any of the above makes you unhappy, remember that this is our space. You can find your own here.

    my friend told me about this website and as i was reading through the articles i find these blogs full of ideas and opinions. This is a great place and i find myself attached to the screen of the computer reading all these different blogs. My favorite would most certainly be “M.I.A is more than a little badass” it is very entertaining article.

    I said this before (in a specific comment) but I’ll say it again: this blog is a class act. I love the fact that you monitor comments; so many blogs do not, and I’ve gotten PTSD from reading some vitriolic comment threads (joke, but barely). This is a beautiful safe space. Do you accept submissions for posts or are all the topics/writers host-generated?

  • mirandanyc says:

    Lysergic Asset, thank you for such a meaningful compliment! It’s great to hear.

    We’ve had just one guest post so far, but I’d love to have many more. If you have something you’d like to submit, shoot me an email: womensglib -AT- gmail -DOT- com.

    I just came across your blog for the first time, and am completely enamored with it. You are all amazingly brilliant, wonderfully insightful and talented writers.

    Just read the article about Glee. I loved your insight and how the characters play to stereotypes. I have only seen one episode and like yourself I was very annoyed by the characters and idiotic plot line. I am tired of the lispy “gay” character and the “finger-waggin, straight talking black woman”. I think that’s why cable has been able to stay on top. I don’t have cable, but the shows that I have seen seem to push boundaries, while giving the characters true depth. Thanks!

  • I wanted to share a documentary with readers of this blog would find interesting and inspiring since themes of activism, feminism, and global issues. The documentary is called “The Naked Option: A Last Resort” which is a story of an organized group of Nigerian women who use the threat of stripping naked in public, a serious cultural taboo, to make their voices heard against multinational oil corporations like Shell. In Nigeria there are devastating environmental issues that are the result of invasive and corrupt multinational oil companies who are not held accountable by government to any reasonable environmental standards. I believe you and others would find this documentary inspiring because the women of the Niger Delta take charge of the situation, multinational corporations’ corruption is exposed, and since the women have made major strides toward seeking accountability from these companies. The women continue to struggle against these companies and with soaring gas prices and this documentary helps show the cost of oil in the areas in which drilling occurs.
    The women of the Niger Delta continue to struggle for basic standards of living, basic air quality conditions, and struggle to survive financially, all as a consequence of nearly six decades of multinational oil companies invading their country. I believe people in the United States, would appreciate learning about the struggles of women in Nigeria due to the impact of several U.S. corporations. The documentary premiered May 21st this year at the “CounterCorp Anti-Corporate Film Festival” in San Francisco, you may visit the website at: http://www.countercorp.org/. Partners of the documentary include: Justice in Nigeria Now (JINN), Global Greengrants Fund, and Women’s Earth Alliance.
    If you have any interest in the documentary, please let me know. In the meantime, this is the link to the website for the film: http://www.nakedoptionmovie.com/. There you can watch the trailer for the documentary. If you have any questions or would like more information, please feel free to contact Candace Schermerhorn, the director of the documentary, at: Candace@nakedoptionmovie.com. You may also contact me if you have any questions regarding my email.

    Thank you for your time.

    Sincerely,
    Amanda Gonzalez

    I am a 54-year-old woman, mother of three, reader, writer, and advocate for disability-related rights. I wandered across this blog when researching Ophelia for a piece I am writing (Phoebe, thank you for your insightful defense of Ophelia)–and I spent the next few hours roaming the pages. I must tell you that you give me hope for our future; I love knowing there are so many bright, talented, assertive and conscientious young people who have a passion for justice and are not shy about sharing their convictions and their stories. I am sending a link to this blog to my daughter.
