Take Back the Blog Swarm

With a cutoff of April 28th, 7pm, Crablaws Maryland Weekly is hosting the Take Back the Blog blogswarm (hat tip Jessica at Feministing):

As announced, this page will host the April 28, 2007 Take Back the Blog! Blogswarm in support of the rights of women to participate fully in all aspects of our society, including specifically online in the world of blogging but indeed everywhere and at all times, day and night, without fear of harassment, intimidation, sexual harassment, online stalking and slander, predation or violence of any sort. This page will be modified without notice during the next several weeks to accommodate the incoming structure and content for this Blogswarm.

If the term “blogswarm” does not appeal to you, that’s ok! You can call it a “virtual march” or, if you contribute, anything you like!

NEW: HOW TO SUBMIT POSTS to the Take Back the Blog! Blogswarm. I have set up a new email address at:

TBTB2007 (crablaw.com) [Edited to be a bit less spam friendly]

solely to receive links for TBTB. If you don’t have a blog, but want to contribute, email me and we will work something out. The “cut-off” time will be 7 PM on Saturday, April 28. Submitting early is GREAT – whenever you find it convenient,

This is about the right to live and act without fear and violence. So join in and write a post or three. Write about personal experiences, write about local laws. Write about marches and protests and the underlying principles behind equality.

The goal is both to provide a convenient compilation of (undoubtedly excellent) content for readers’ benefit and to make a show of strength and of organization within the blogosphere from bloggers with different perspectives towards common concerns.

This is a show of strength. Come on and add your voice!
