Today is International Woman’s Day 2011.
Some will undoubtedly question why we should have such a day. Most women understand without thinking about it much. And all you need to do is compare pay scales here in the United States and elsewhere to realize we are still a long way from equality. I’ve never understood why women are paid less and why we so often seem to be feared or hated or thought less than men.
But I digress!
Some of my favorite women writers include:
Lori Widmer – Just love the way she tells it like it is. And she’s always got my back.
Carol Tice – Another straight shooter, and fun to teach with.
Jenn Mattern – She always knows who she is and what she wants to say.
Cathy Miller – another friend and writer who knows what its all about.
Deb Ng – A leader in the blogasphere and a good friend.
Helen Chang – Good writer, good friend.
Lauri S. Friedman – Good writer, good friend.
I am proud to know these women. Each of them makes the world a better place because they are in it, and make my world better by far. Each has a writing ability to envy and to learn from.
Now, who are some of your favorite women writers?
