International Women’s Day

Today is International Women’s Day, so this is one of the few occasions I’ll fill these hallowed pages with non-technical content.

If they aren’t already, add the following to your blog roll.

Feministe
Feministing
I Blame The Patriarchy
Litbrit
Majikthise
Pandagon
Shakespeare’s Sister

And just so I can keep this post vaguely on topic as well, Sarah Blow posted this on Tuesday.

An English professor wrote on the board: A woman without her man is nothing.

The class was then asked to punctuate the sentence.

The men wrote: “A woman, without her man, is nothing.”
The women wrote: “A woman: without her, man is nothing.”

As this is almost certainly apocryphal I’ve modified it slightly from what Sarah posted.  This version removes the assumption that the professor must be a man.
