Hello everyone and thanks for another great week of conversation. Posting continues to be a little light because I am working in pain due to the weather. Thanks for your continued patience. If you would like to participate more fully in the goings on here, please take advantage of the open guest posting policy. Simply send in a link to your blog or your original work via e-mail to womanistmusings (at) gmail (dot) com. Please include a three line bio and an image that represents either you or your work.
March 8th is International Woman's day and to celebrate, I would like to do a series of post on women heroes. If you are interested in participating, please send me a small e-mail naming the woman you intend to write about so that I can ensure that there are no duplicates. Ideally, the finished piece will be about a prominent woman that you admire. Final submissions are due February 15th.
Below you will find links to posts that I found interesting this week. Please show these bloggers some love and check them out. When you are done, don't forget to drop it like it's hot and leave your link behind in the comment section.
