Motherhood needs much more politics. Kudos to the Circle of Moms for promoting political bloggers within the ‘mother bloggers’ set, and given that their editorial staff nominated me and a bunch of other feminist bloggers to their Top 25 – The Mamafesto, The Radical Housewife, Jessica Valenti, The Feminist Breeder, Pundit Mom, Working Moms Break, Mamapundit and Viva la Feminista – I have to also say a big Brava! to them for making sure feminist motherhood gets recognition. In fact, last year when the votes were finally counted their top four winners were all feminist mothers. Fringe group, indeed.
In the tradition of all good elections (particularly those on the Internet) my advice is to vote early and vote often.. and also, to vote for me or another favourite feminist blogger on that list.. but mostly for me. You can vote every 24 hours right up until 4 April 2012. Chomp down that click bait, I’m counting on you.
