Call For Nominations

Today I have been inspired by Echidne of the Snakes:

Do you get upset, sad or angry when you read bad news about the rights of women or when you come across yet another misogynistic joke or tidbit? If so, what do you do about those grimy feelings?

Whenever you cannot shake off something misogynistic you have seen, read or heard, send a small check to your favorite feminist organization. If you have no money to send, e-mail a thank-you letter to one of those unsung hero(ine)s doing the hard work on behalf of world's women.

I know my readership is small, but I would like to try to highlight an unsung heroine from nominations from you. When I say highlight, I would like to write a post dedicated to this person, describing their contributions to the world that have helped women. It could be anything--from founding an organization to providing advice and encouragement to a friend. There needs to be more singing of these heroes, and I would like to help, using my platform--my writing.

If you would like to nominate someone, please send me an email at khutchinson719 AT gmail DOT com. Please include a short description of your nominee (it could even be yourself) and why you think s/he is an unsung hero and how this person has helped women. Include your contact info so I can be in touch!
