Ms. Blog Launched on International Women’s Day

Today, on International Women’s Day, Ms magazine launched Ms. blog. The Ms. Blog will be a hub for exchange, collaboration and discussion, introducing fresh perspectives on national and global politics, culture, media, health, law and life. The blog already includes contributors from seven countries, and the overall contributors’ roster ranges from well-known names to up-and-coming writers and thinkers. Among the bloggers who have signed on to the project are novelist Diana Abu-Jaber, feminist writer Deborah Siegel, sociologist Shira Tarrant, media scholar Ebony Utley, memoirist Aimee Liu, Chicana activist and “mommyblogger” Veronica Arreola, and many more. Recognizing that no aspect of life is immune from gender politics, the Ms. Blog will address the intersectionality of gender with race, class, nationality and sexuality. And although there will be personal talk on the Ms. Blog, it will always be with the recognition that the personal is political.
