20 04 2011

This appeared on our Facebook page last week:

http://www.womynwarrior.com/2011/04/an-open-call-for-writers/

Womyn Warrior blog is looking for article contributions. As they say:

Our vision is to build a collaborative of feminist, activist writers who envision and work toward the end of rape culture. Writers critically examining presentations of violence and gender in the media and politics. Writers creating a new standard for research-based and empowering personal safety information. Writers advocating for self defense, “Against Victim-Blaming AND Against Rape.”

Whether you are a violence prevention educator, a sociology student, or a recent graduate of a self defense course. Whether you have time to write one brief article a year, or are in search of a host for your weekly exposés. We want to hear YOUR voice!

Check them out, and consider adding your voice.

Do Your Students Blog?

10 03 2010

If you have an occasional student who blogs about your class, that’s great! Even better is when that student blogs for a major news source.

Mary Davies took my 3 hour class a week ago. I’m always fascinated to learn exactly what students get out of classes, and it’s rare to have one so articulate and thorough.

Her original blog post is at Sixty and Single in Seattle. And this blog feeds into the Seattle Post-Intelligencer’s Readers Blog of the same name.

If your students blog about you, please send the link to safetynet@nwmaf.org.
