International Women's Day: Blogging for Gender Liberation

Last November and December, I participated in a wonderful online campaign called "Take Back the Tech: 16 Days of Action against Gender Based Violence." On Day 8 of the campaign, I collected 30 stories from 30 places, in order to demonstrate the breadth of women's experiences around the world. Tonight, in honour of International Women's Day, I want to revisit each of those 30 places and provide you with a fresh look at how women are commemorating this special day. The list is presented in alphabetical order (by country):
  1. Argentina
  2. Australia
  3. Azerbaijan & South Caucasus
  4. Bangladesh
  5. Belize
  6. Canada
  7. Chile
  8. China
  9. Dominican Republic
  10. East Africa
  11. Kolkata, India
  12. Imphal, India
  13. Ireland
  14. Israel & the Occupied Territories
  15. Jerusalem, Israel
  16. Jamaica
  17. Korea

What an amazing tour, GDKitty. Some of that is most inspiring, although so much is still so tough. It's important for us to know, though, that even in places where women face severe oppression, there are individuals and groups who are working for change from inside their own cultures, a truth our cynical political leaders obscure with their rhetoric and spin when they want to use women's oppression as a justification for imperial adventures.
