Here’s where the whereabouts of those mythical women who blog on politics can be found. Are you a woman who blogs politics?

Started By Angry Black Bitch (see comments), this is now a group blog on anti-racism and anti-sexism and anti-prejudice of all kinds. Do the Required Reading before wading in further.
For those who want to have a look at what I’m reading and finding memorable on various blogs but may not have found time to write a blog post about, you can look at my latest Shared Items from my Google Reader in the sidebar on the About Us page.
