Ms. launches blog on International Women’s Day

Read Lina Abirafeh's on-the-ground report about how Haitian women are faring in the wake of the earthquake.

It’s International Women’s Day, and Ms. magazine has celebrated the occasion by launching the Ms. Blog.

The Ms. Blog will showcase the sharp writing and informed opinions of a community of feminist bloggers from around the nation and the globe. Contributors will report on the ground from seven countries for starters, and the overall roster ranges from well-known names to up-and-coming writers/thinkers. Most of the bloggers are women, but some feminist men have joined the team as well.

Ms. has also created two special pages-Share With Ms. and Take Action-in recognition that real feminist change requires both community dialog and direct auction.

Continue your celebration of International Women’s Day by reading “Tomorrow’s Journalism” by essayist Mary Kay Blakely. In it, she assesses the contribution of women’s media, not the least of which may well be charting a path to a healthy journalism that serves the public good.

If you have a Twitter account, use the hashtag #IWD when you tweet about International Women’s Day.
