Drop It Like It’s Hot

Hey everyone, I hope that the week went well for all.  Once again we had an influx of trolls, please try not to engage with them and I will delete the commentary as soon as I see it.  They are not here to argue in good faith.  Arguments that disagree with the point made in a post are always welcome but not if they include the debasement of others.  As much as possible I would like Womanist Musings to be a safe space for all.

I would also like to take the time to thank this weeks guest posters.  Your contribution helps to widen the discussions that take place here.   If anyone is interested in guest posting here, please note that Womanist Musings has an open guest posting policy.  Please send a link or your original post to me via e-mail.

On Sunday at 8pm EST, the Womanist Musings podcast will return.  This week we are interviewing Irene Vilar, the author of  Impossible Motherhood.   We will be discussing her experiences with addiction and abortion.   Her book recently hit the front pages polarizing the discussion regarding a woman's right to choose.  Ms. Vilar had 15 abortions over the course of 17 years.  Today she is the mother of two.


Below you will a few links to posts that I found interesting this week.  Please show these bloggers some love and check them out.
