when it came to my attention that women are underrepresented in most blog charts, I wondered why. Certainly, there are many intelligent and outspoken girls and women out there who have been active in the blogosphere. Where are they, though? How come that, as of February 2010, we only know a fraction of them?
GIRLS CAN BLOG would like to raise awareness of the relatively small number of female opinion leaders (both online and offline).
To this end, GIRLS CAN BLOG would like to host a collection of professional and semi-professional blogs edited by women of all backgrounds and areas of interest. Young girls especially should be encouraged to use the Internet to make themselves heard.
GIRLS CAN BLOG is pro open-source knowledge and very interested in networking with international organizations who aim for the advancement of women and girls in society. Education and the ability to read and write are crucial in a world that is taking place on screens more and more.
As of yet, GIRLS CAN BLOG is a private initiative, but I would love to turn it into a proper organization eventually. In the meantime, please support this blog by mailing your favorite links and best ideas to girlscanblog (at) googlemail.com.
Looking forward to hearing from y'all!
