Good morning everyone, thanks for another great week of conversation. Part of what makes Womanist Musings a community, is our willingness to take on subjects that others completely avoid. If you would like to participate in the conversations that happen here, please send a link to your blog or your original work to womanistmusings (at) gmail (dot) com. Please include a three line bio and an image that you would like associated with your work
It is clear to me that the regulars on this blog love to read as much as I do. I was wondering if anyone would be interested in participating in a group discussion of a book - a sort of online book club? Feel free to nominate a few books in the comment section. I will put it up for a vote next Saturday and we can go from there.
Below you will find blog posts that I found interesting this week. Please check them out and show these bloggers some love. When you are through, don't forget to drop it like it's hot and leave your link behind in the comment section.
