Ring Them Bells

This morning, I included a video of Sarah Jarosz with Jerry Douglas in my post about tomorrow’s #FeministFriday post at Drifting Through. This version is different, and it’s the perfect way to end the day. I encourage you to visit @gkelly73‘s blog tomorrow. Thoughts on the music below.

I’m told there will be a #FeministFriday post at Drifting Through tomorrow. I am hoping for a good discussion on the thread. If we manage to have one, it will be the sixth Friday in a row that we’ve managed to have a good discussion about gender inequality. I’ll certainly chime in if I have anything to say, and I will read every word of the thread. Remarks about the photo below.

These Friday discussions are into their sixth week now. The reason I had the idea to start them was because Gretchen, Diana, and I have had a running conversation about gender inequality on comments threads since December or January. You can read the story of how our conversation started in my first discussion post, which asks the question “Is Feminism a useful label any more?”

Here’s a list of the other five posts, in chronological order. Some of them have links to posts on other blogs, and it’s all good stuff.
