Monday (?!) Links

I know, I know... I'm a day late with the links. I've added some extras from today to make it up to you though...

Six women raise money for a maternity hospital in Afghanistan by swimming the English Channel. (This link's for you, Maus).

The Feminist Law Professors discuss a new study on girls and sexism.

McCain's Radical Health Care Agenda is scary.

Studies find that boys are just as catty as girls.

FeministGal collects ads showing McCain contradicting himself - repeatedly.

Renee discusses micro-activism and gives some ideas of how we can all confront our privileges.

The American Prospect has a brief article about gender, race, and the challenges facing WOC.

The Curvature discusses a judge who has bared a woman from having children.

Some Southern Baptists are angry about a magazine cover that shows women preachers.

The American Psychological Association has voted to prohibit consultation in the interrogations of detainees at Guantanamo Bay.

What else have you been reading - or writing - since last week's links?

I wrote a fun post on the history of women pirates for Talk Like a Pirate Day.

Also a post on the impact of the economy on all of us not making millions each year.

And one exposing a couple of racist comic strips.

I must admit, if I was in London and swam for that team I would have definitely signed up for the fund-raiser. How awesome is that?! Swimming the English Channel *and* raising money for a maternity hospital in Afghanistan. An opportunity beyond anything I could imagine on both fronts.

Hey Maus - if you go swim the English Channel, we'll raise money for the feminist cause of your choice. I bet you could find some liberal-minded swim friends online too.

Elena - wow - pirates... I love it.

And finally- hey dude who's comment I just rejected, we'll be happy to advertise for you - if you pay us. No freebies.
