Check out our recent discoveries:

Boss Lady: Because women run businesses - fresh new blog by Lauren Bacon & Emira Mears, two brilliant women in Vancouver who also run the divine Raised Eyebrow Web Studio. Smart, sassy, Canadian. What's not to love?

FunnyBusiness: Real Stories about Real People who have Real Jobs. - This sharp and sometimes surreal blog about business management is by BlogHer Contributing Editor and terrific writer and journalist Elana Centor, who says:

The focus of this blog is on the story, not who is telling it, or what company the story is about...These are real stories, about real people, who work real jobs, for real organizations....If you have a story that you want to share, share with me.

I could not make this stuff up. Not the shenanigans, not the showstopping, not the hidden agendas, and definitely not the policy statements.

Read her blog and still want more Elana? Of course you do. So check out her podcasts, too!

And make sure to visit the meta-blog, BlogSheroes: The Feminist Bloggers Network, managed by the tall, slinky, gorgeous and smart-smart-smart Blog Diva Liza Sabater.

Liza who runs a number of other great blogs, including Culturekitchen and The Daily Gotham. What is BlogSheroes about? Says Liza:

[Our] mission is to facilitate promotional, professional and development opportunities for feminist bloggers. We do so by managing The Feminist BlogAds Network; by serving as a directory of feminist bloggers and networks; as well as a clearinghouse of resources that will empower feminist bloggers to better support their writing as careers or new media business ventures.

No matter your politics, no matter your point of view, stop by these sites, read some posts, make a comment or three. Join a discussion. Be heard!

Can't Stop the Serenity

Can't Stop the Serenity

Joss Whedon's Serenity on the big screen.
On Joss Whedon's birthday.
To benefit Joss Whedon's favorite charity, Equality Now.

There are two ways to fight a battle like ours. One is to whisper in the ear of the masses, try subtlely and gradually to change the gender expectations and mythic structures of our culture. That's me. The other is to step up and confront the thousands of atrocities that are taking place around the world on an immediate, one-by-one basis. That's a great deal harder, and that's Equality Now. It's not about politics; it's about basic human decency.
- Joss Whedon

Equality Now works to end violence and discrimination against women and girls around the world through the mobilization of public pressure. Issues of concern to Equality Now include:
