WOC Blog Carnival

After spending sometime on the blogsphere it has become clear that the issues of WOC are either marginalized, or silenced.  I think that a change needs to happen.  We have something to say and deserve to be heard.  To that end I am starting a carnival...its called Tell It, WOC speak.  Please submit your articles here.  They can be about anything that you deem important, race gender, family, personal stories etc..you decide.  What is important is that we send our collective voices out there and demand that we be heard! The submission date is June 25, and I will post the carnival here at womanist musings on July 1. The homepage for the carnival can be found here.  Articles submitted by allies will also be accepted.

I am hoping to run this as a monthly carnival so if you are interested in hosting a carnival please feel free send me an e-mail at womanistmusings@gmail.com . I am really looking forward to reading all of your entries.

Hey - this carnival is a good idea thanks. We all need to be writing about how feminism intersects with race, sexuality, gender identity, and social class - and we can all be allies for one anther. These issues shouldn't be marginalized within feminism, nor should they be 'ghettoized' by those who want to shove them to the side as 'not mainstream feminist issues.' Hopefully, this carnival will encourage people to embrace issues of race and ethnicity into 'mainstream' (rich white?) feminism, and discourage the all too common excuse for silence "but that doesn't affect me."

Renee - this sounds fantastic! I'm working on a couple of things, so I'll certainly send something. Thank you again for for putting your voice out there, and now inviting others to speak. Yes - Tell It - WOC Speak!

THanks so much...I have not gotten any submission yet but hopefully as the word spreads, women will start to send their posts. I think this could be great if we all just give it a chance.
