Fresh Australian Feminism

Happy New Year – And Happy Voting!

Posted by Clem Bastow on January 4, 2009

On behalf of everyone here at The Dawn Chorus, happy New Year and thanks for becoming a part of our first “year” in earnest. We’ve shone the Australian feminist spotlight on everything from underage female bodybuilders to hypocritical gymnastics coaches, airbrushing in political campaigning to dressing for your sex (or lack thereof), not to mention ongoing coverage of reproductive rights, violence against women, media sexism – and, because we’re not just angry all the time, the amazing feminists making a difference throughout the world and the women we love.

Now, if you look to the right-hand side of the page, you’ll notice a new little banner – yes, in just six months of posting, The Dawn Chorus has been nominated for a 2008 Weblog Award for Best Australian or New Zealand Blog! Voting opens today (January 5th) and continues until the weekend, and since we would very much like to be able to thank the academy, VOTE! You can do so once each day for the duration of the voting period. Encourage your friends and family to vote! Re-blog the banner, email out, send postcards, whatever!

Let’s make 2009 a feminist spectacular, and here’s to two-thousand-and-fiiiiiine!

    Congrats on being a finalist – and I’m certain the final result did not do you justice. Next year I hope this blog gets the recognition it deserves.
