I remember...

By Libby

The first day that CNN came on the air. It felt like a breath of fresh air in a stale news enviroment. Unfiltered news 24/7. A permanent fix for a news junkie. I mainlined it daily. Now it feels like one more noxious gust of intellectual pollution. I rarely tune it in.

The BEEB and PBS are about all that is left. Desert island, anyone?

PBS isn't what it used to be either but BBC is still good. I just figured out that I get it on my TV.

Libby, I thought you might find this interesting. Here is a sampling of the latest gender equality rankings from The World Economic Forum (just released today):

1 – Sweden
2 – Norway
3 – Finland

7 – Germany
6 – Philippines
11 – Britain

31 – United States

With respect to the USA, it seems rhetoric is louder than action, like everything else going on these days.

Tell you the truth SC, I'm a lousy feminist. Gender issues don't concern me much. It's just a fact of life.

But the stats are interesting. Thanks.

Libby, I follow gender issues because I raised 3 daughters. Legal and social issues that impact their lives as women are of concern to me. In addition, I see gender equality, freedom to choose, and gay rights as part of the liberal social agenda, and I regard myself as decidedly liberal.

There are young, feminist bloggists whom I admire for their brilliance and edginess, like Bean (at LGM), Lindsay (from Majikthise), among others. Supporting their forums is also a form of mentoring.

Yeah, that's the other reason I don't post on feminist issues. Because there's already a core group of bloggers that do it so well, I don't see the point of just adding to the chorus.
