Speak up, speak out: Women Against Sarah Palin

Feministing featured a brand new blog watch, Women Against Sarah Palin.   At a time when it feels like the walls are closing in and our voices are growing weak, I am inspired by this blog. It is an example of a true call to action.  In my own case, Feminist Fatale has been an idea  has been formulating for years and has been in the works for months but it was Sarah Palin’s meteoric thrust into the political and cultural atmosphere to finally prompted me to make a move and just start writing.

It is absolutely imperative that we take an active role in our own lives and the social/historical/political context that are seemingly private lives are embedded in.  I highly urge you to join the conversation here, at Feministing, at Women Against Sarah Palin, at…??

And, I must admit, the use of Elizabeth Cady Stanton’s quote, “Come, come, my conservative friend, wipe the dew off your spectacles, and see that the world is moving” at the top of the Women Against Sarah Palin blog “had me at hello.”

I am happy to know that there are so many other women and men out in the blogosphere, out on the streets, in their homes and in the classrooms having this important conversation and asserting their voices.  It’s like sipping fresh air in a stale room.
