International Women's Day

Peruvian women to be.

For international women's day, here are links to a few women's blogs NOT from the U.S. (but in English, because I'm linguistically impoverished.)

What An African Woman Thinks by Rombo from Nairobi, Kenya. Wonderful writing about a woman's life. Do check out the story of the clerk and those videotapes.

Lavinia Live by Lavina Mahlangu, a journalist, from Pretoria, South Africa. She has just lived through covering municipal elections with lots of pictures

Raising Yousuf: a diary of a mother under occupation by Laila El-Haddad from Gaza. Israeli settlers may be gone, but the grinding reality of the occupation continues. Laila has reason to be tired.

Black Looks This site is THE invaluable source for all developments African. Today she honors Mrs. O. C. Odua, a founding member and President of the Egi Women’s Council and the Egi Widowhood Association both based in Erema Town, Egi, Rivers State, Nigeria.

Thanks for the links to international women. I'd like to hear more of these voices in our conversations about feminism.
