International Women’s Day

IwdlogoIn 1908, 15000 women marched in the streets of New York demanding shorter hours, better pay and voting rights. Three years later, on March 8, 1911, the first International Women’s Day was launched in Copenhagen. Tomorrow, in Sydney, thousands will gather at Sydney Town Hall at 11am.

And in honour of International Women’s Day, I thought it worth remembering that there are some fantastic blogs by women — and what better place to start than with the W-list. If your blog/name is not on the list, then join up here to add your blog to the W Magical List of Women Bloggers. Also check out Wowowow.

Here are a couple of my local favourites that don’t seem to be listed — Dipping into the Blogpond by Meg Tsiamis, Laurel Papworth and Our Great Southern Land by Jayne.

  1. Thanks for the mention, but I no longer write on Orlando Avenue as I have moved to Niagara Falls NY and have a new site…

  2. Gavin,
    Thank you so much for re-visiting the W-list for International Women’s Day. A nice reminder of a great group of bloggers. You rock! :)

  3. Connie Reece says:

    When I see you in New York next month, Gavin, I’m going to give you a big hug for reprinting the W-list. For reasons I won’t go into, other than to say they have to do with why the W-list was created in the first place, it was especially nice to discover your post tonight. Thanks.

  4. Karen says:

    Hi and thanks for the mention. I have now taken over the Wiggly Wigglers blog for Heather Gorringe. Really enjoying it and getting to meet some great people.

  5. Ayesha says:

    Hello…,
    That is a good snipet and I must say an exhaustive list..!
    Any other story to share..!

  6. Thank you, Gavin. In Italy on March 8, all women go out to lunch and/or dinner and give each other flowers.
    There have been nice stories since the W-List’s kick off last August. My message to all is that it’s alright to interrogate reality http://tiny.cc/g7c55
    I invite you to have Three Cups of Tea with each other http://tiny.cc/DkzXq

  7. swissmiss says:

    Thank you for the mention! I feel honored.

  8. Carolyn says:

    Thanks so much for the love and the list – again. Such a lovely reminder. Much love and peace, Carolyn, The Wild Wiki Woman!

  9. Rebecca says:

    Thank you for helping to spread the list – it’s such a great project. Happy Friday!

  10. Anna Farmery says:

    I know what it is….you wanted to ensure a very warm welcome from all the ladies!!!
    It worked! Once Connie has finished there is a hug from me too :)

  11. The truly cool thing about this list is how many new connections were made, how many new bonds were forged and have only strengthened over time. It’s an amazing thing to see so many talented, bright and terrific women reach out to one another. We can’t ever lose sight of the power we have when we help one another.

  12. You are SUCH a flirt – way to go to get into our good books, you ol’ rascal. :P (thnx for the brilliant rap). Bookmarked as it’s an amazing list, very well researched. *hugs*

  13. Gavin, what a lovely way to celebrate! Thank you very much.

  14. Gavin, what a wonderful way to celebrate International Women’s Day! Thank you.

  19. Robyn says:

    Gavin, it doesn’t surprise me to see you value your women blogger friends today. Thanks so much!

  20. Ann Handley says:

    Gavin — Thanks for reprinting this list of blogs published by some truly fabulous people. I feel honored to be in their company.

  21. I was honored to see my blog, ChildCenteredDivorce, among those listed. I’m doing my utmost to serve parents faced with or coping with divorce issues and this is a wonderful affirmation that I’m making a difference. Many thanks!

    There was once a poor man who could no longer afford to keep his only son at home. So the son said to him, ‘Dear fatherworld of warcraft goldwow powow orbuy wow goldcheap wow goldwow power levelingwow powerlevelingdofus kamaskamas dofusLord of the Rings Online GoldLOTRO GoldLOTR Goldage of conan goldage of conan power levelingage conan goldaoc goldaoc power levelingaoc levelingMaple Story meso,you are so poor that I am only a burden to you; I would rather go out into the world and see if I can earn my own living.’ The father gave him his blessing and took leave of him with much sorrow. About this time the King of a very powerful kingdom was carrying on a war; the youth therefore took service under him and went on the campaign. When they came before the enemy, a battle took place, there was some hot fighting, and it rained bullets so thickly that his comrades fell around him on all sides. And when their leader fell too the rest wished to take to flight; but the youth stepped forward and encouraged them and called out, ‘We must not let our country be ruined!’ Then others followed him, and he pressed on and defeated the enemy. When the King heard that he had to thank him alone for the victory, he raised him higher than anyone else in rank, gave him great treasures Maple Story Mesosmaplestory Mesosfly for fun penyaflyff penyabuy flyff goldflyff moneyffxi gilbuy ffxi gilFinal Fantasy XI gilbuy cheap ffxi gilfinal fantasy 11 cheap gilbuy Warhammer goldWarhammer goldbuy Warhammer goldand made him the first in the kingdom.The King had a daughter who was very beautiful, but she was also very capricious.
