Teachers Teaching Teachers #153 – Girls Rule (2 of 2): Meet three glib feminists! – 05.27.09
This is the second of two shows we’ve done recently that featured young high school women. On TTT#152 we enjoyed learning from the young women at Matt Montagne’s school who are involved with tthe Gator Radio Experience.
On this podcast, we feature three amazing teenagers, three glib feminists who have begun to make their voices be heard on a group blog, "Womens Glib."
File this one under student self-initiated work that gives you hope for the future — and the present too!
The young women who started a feminist blog recently to join us on Teachers Teaching Teachers. We learned so much from them that we can’t wait until we play this for our students in this fall when we introduce them to blogging.
Women’s Glib is a community of nerdy, foul-mouthed youth. Miranda started the adventure in January, after many months spent wondering if she was up to the task of maintaining a blog. She was very quickly joined by Katie, Ruth, Zoe, Phoebe, Shira, Silvia, and Kyla. Guest contributors also help spread the feministy love now and then.
Here’s what they say on their about page:
Women’s Lib[eration], a.k.a. feminism: n., belief in the social, political, and economic equality of all people regardless of gender or sex
glib: adj., performed with a natural, offhand ease
Women’s Glib is a blog by and for young feminists and womanists. Contributors are teenage New Yorkers, writing about what matters to us with a focus on feminism and other progressive values. We cannot and do not speak for all teenagers or all young feminists; we simply speak for ourselves and write our own truths.
Listen to the podcast and be inspired with us by this new generation of feminist bloggers.
