All About Eve – Invitation to March Synchroblog

6 Mar

UPDATE! Due date for posts has changed to 6 p.m. EST on March 20, 2012

Women's History Month Observance Poster (Defense Department illustration: Peter Hemmer)

It’s Women’s History month and International Women’s Day is March 8. Women’s rights have been all over the news recently, from bills in Congress and state representative bodies to crass “jokes” by national broadcasters. The idea that women are or should be equal to men has become a polarizing topic of discussion on the national stage. So we thought Synchroblog might jump right in. Anything concerning women in general, women and the church, balancing women’s rights with religious freedoms, the differences between men and women … these are all good topics for blog posts.

There is one caveat, we are asking that the Synchroblog be a voice of moderation and temperance. You may have strong beliefs on this subject and that is good. Giving voice those beliefs in a spirit of cooperation and bridge-building is also good. We would like these posts to step in that direction.

Here are a couple of great examples of moderate writing on women’s issues to prime your writing …

–> An Apology From Limbaugh, But The Damage Is Done by Denny Burke –

–> And now…on the other side (critique of extreme complementarianism) by Roger E. Olsen

This topic idea brought to you by Wendy McCaig and Katherine Gunn (aka Jeannette Ailtes) … thank you for your help, ladies.

Add your post link in the comments section by midnight 6:00 pm EST, Tuesday March 13 20, 2012 to be included in this month’s Synchroblog. We are looking forward to hearing from you.

    April 13? Or March?

      Steve – It should be March 13. We will make the correction. Thanks for the alert.

        Yay – the date has been changed to March 20! That gives us a little extra time :>)

      Sorry about the confusion … my kids’ teen group is planning a dance on April 13 and I mixed things up.

      The new date is March 20th … extra time 🙂
