Duke University is now a training ground for feminist bloggers. Jezebel.com reports that “22 women and 1 dude” will take part in the Write(H)ers program, which is designed to help student writers explore gender issues.
The campus paper, the Duke Chronicle, explains that students “will participate in personal blogging and workshops with professional journalists to discuss gender issues in society and on campus.” One of those journalists is Rebecca Traister, the author of Big Girls Don’t Cry, a book about gender in the 2008 presidential election.
Duke’s Women’s Center is organizing the training and has been linking to student work on its Twitter feed. Here are a few recent posts:
Duke’s project, by the way, is the exact opposite of what Beliefnet did last week.
