Announcement: Blog Against Sexism Day (March 8)

March 8 is International Women's Day, and this year, it's also Blog Against Sexism Day.

Details are up at Vegankid:

Inspired by the Blog Against Racism Day in December, it was decided that for at least one day we would try to focus the blogosphere on another evil: Patriarchy. While those that write about sexism on a regular basis are gladly asked to join in, we enourage those that never or rarely talk about this important topic to join in. There are no guidelines. All that is asked is that you write at least a little something against sexism, against Patriarchy, against Male Supremacy. We especially encourage men to challenge themselves and write about the topic.

Participating is easy-peasy! Just leave a comment on this post, indicating your intention to participate.

When March 8 rolls around, post your writing on sexism at your blog and send an email to Vegankid with the permalink.

Vegankid asks that you also trackback to vegankid.solidaritydesign.net/2006/02/12/blog-against-sexism-day/.

Tip: I recommend Wizbang Standalone Trackback Pinger.

To increase publicity and help strengthen the impact of this blog activism, you can also opt to include a Technorati Tag for in your post. (See the code in the upper left-hand sidebar at Technorati.)

Further details can be found at Vegankid.

Frankly, I can't get enough of these blog activism days, and I hope you can't either! Please consider participating - every blog entry counts in spreading awareness about sexism.
