Jane Hamsher over at firedoglake wrote a great post about women bloggers. It seems we are toiling away along with the men, but none of us have been able to break into the top 100 (although firedoglake is well on the way). As Ms. Hamsher points out, it is not due to lack of support from our male counterparts, they are in fact extremely generous with their help, nor is it because we aren’t good at it. It may just be that we haven’t hit our stride yet, but female voices in politics have always been marginalized to some extent. Just look at the make-up of Congress, The Supreme Court, the White House and of course cable news. They have plenty of women delivering the news, but few women are invited to give their opinions on the pundit shows (except those with terrible opinions like, Peggy Noonan, Ann Coulter and Kate O’Beirne). Hopefully it’s just a matter of time.
I suggest you check out the list of her favorite female bloggers, many of them my favorites too, but I’d add these fine women as well:
Gray Does Matter
Mad Melancholic Feminista
Tennessee Guerilla Women
Ravings of a Semi-Sane Mad Woman
This is by no means a complete list (often times I don’t know the gender of the blogger) and there are many great women bloggers out there that I just haven’t found yet, if you have some favorites, please share!
