Sisterhood, the Blog is sacred space for twenty-first century women to explore self-discovery through sisterhood connections and communities, spirituality, self-care, self-expression, storytelling, social media, and social justice advocacy.
Sisterhood, the Blog will offer twenty-first century women a road map on how to creatively plug into online and offline practices, tools, experiences, and communities that encourage them to maximize the quilt of infinite possibilities they have inherited from the women’s rights, spirituality, self-help, and technology movements.
Sisterhood, the Blog will launch in June 2009 with the following Sisterhood, the Blog social media projects:
Until then, read the twenty-first century women’s manifesto below and let us know what you think.
Twenty-First Century Women’s Manifesto by Ananda Leeke
Copyright 2009 by Madelyn C. Leeke
(Excerpt from That Which Awakens Me: A Woman’s Poetic Memoir of Self-Discovery by Ananda Leeke – published by iUniverse, Inc. in Spring/Summer 2009)
Women living in the twenty-first century are the beneficiaries of four movements that have defined and expanded their individual and collective power of choice. These movements include women’s rights, spirituality, self-help, and technology. The women’s rights movement empowered women to:
- claim, demand, and exercise their equal rights in all facets of society;
- live their lives on their own terms;
- document and educate themselves and others about their experiences, accomplishments, and history through art, literature, music, film, and other forms of cultural expression; and
- establish organizations, coalitions, and campaigns that advocate their interests and concerns.
- communicate and maintain relationships in the midst of their busy lives with the support of e-mail, voicemail, cellular phones, and text messaging;
- document and tell their life stories with social media tools such as blogs, Twitter, Utterli, Flickr, and YouTube;
- connect with like-minded people for support, sharing moments, and professional networking in online communities such as Blogher, Facebook, Myspace, LinkedIn, Ning.com, and CollectiveX;
- become members of local Meetup.com interest groups that interact offline;
- expand their pool of eligible dating and life partners with support from online dating sites;
- distribute original content with social bookmarking tools such as AddThis, reddit, StumbleUpon, and Delicious;
- create and participate in Internet-based radio and television programs;
- launch businesses and nonprofit organizations;
- obtain and barter housing, services, and goods on Craigslist.com and other sites;
- publish books, e-zines, and other publications;
- conduct e-commerce and solicit donations with Paypal.com and other tools;
- identify and secure new careers with employment web sites; and
- spearhead and actively participate in advocacy efforts, political campaigns, and other movements.
