I am going to be pulling quite a late night catching up on a lot of work that I won't be able to do tomorrow while I'm at a training seminar. So I don't have time to blog, but fortunately there has been a lot of great blogging done elsewhere, including stories from the women at Mind the Gap as to why they became feminists. Read them here, here, and here.
Also, I've been meaning to critique a National Review interview of Kate O'Beirne, author of the delightfully titled Women Who Make the World Worse: and How Their Radical Feminist Assault Is Ruining Our Schools, Families, Military, and Sports. (Hat tip to Mrs. B). Feministe, however, has beaten me to the punch with a takedown of Ms. O'Beirne's interview with Rebecca Traister in Salon.
Please also check out the commentary in Black Looks on Monday's inauguration of Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf as the new President of Liberia and (I believe) the first woman elected president in Africa. She's got a real challenge ahead of her in light of the serious issues of corruption and nation building in her war torn country.
And last, but definitely not least, Emma at Gendergeek generously describes (at my request) her experiences when she was a fundamentalist Christian. As you all know, I have a great deal of interest in but difficulty understanding women who belong to very conservative Christian denominations. I have read stories of women who have transitioned from a sort of feminism to fundamentalism, but I have not seen too many women write about the opposite transition.
