Let me take a moment away from my chronic writer's block* to say that the large group blog Gender Across Borders - a global feminist blog kind of rocks.
Just today there have been posts about
- Child Marriage: Ukuthwala in South Africa
- Female Circumcision: Comparing Muslim and Non-Muslim African Communities (Which helps explain some of the "blind persons and the elephant" nature of indifference to what you'd think should generate open-and-shut condemnation.)
- A Culture of Violence? (About the peculiar but extreme social pressure on women on the dole in Scotland to forgo perfectly legal and free contraceptive services.)
It's just all-round interesting perspectives plus clarification of issues I didn't know I don't know enough about. Even when I thought I did.
* About this writer's block? I dunno. I still usually draft several posts a day, get them about 95% finished, and still can't get myself to write a closing sentence and post them. Back. Log. City. Month after month. I can comment just fine on other people's blogs. Just not here. Sigh.
