I am excited to announce a blogging adventure that I am going on with some women that I have had the good fortune to meet because we all work on body image and beauty perception issues in some way. We wanted to create a joint dialogue on women’s issues from a variety of perspectives and this blog is the result. Here’s the formal announcement and make sure to Fierce Women Dish on your blogs to check out list (right beside Hijas, right?)…
Join us for
Fierce Women Dish
an artist, a journalist, an activist, a psychologist, and a diva place a cup of nourishment on the table.
The idea for Fierce Women Dish evolved around lunch tables across our city. We’re a lively group of women, equal parts spunky and plucky, heart and hope. We are reverent and irreverent, serious and slapstick, churning and relaxed. Though there is no telling what might come out when we gather at the table, there is always one certainty: no matter how depleted we might have been when we walked in, no matter how uninspired we may have felt, we always leave each other with our wells full.
So, here at our table, this is what we offer you: the opportunity to discuss issues critical to women- to humanity, really- with humor, hope, hurt, and heart. Each Monday, check out the table’s feast at http://fiercewomendish.wordpress.com. There, the five of us will deliver a potluck as we respond to questions like ‘why are the physical effects of aging so terrifying to us when the wisdom gained is so profound?’ And over the course of the week, we hope that you will add to the feast with your insights and observations. Whether you visit Fierce Women Dish each day while eating your lunch or after you have tucked the children into bed, know that our table and heart and hopes are always open to you. Have a seat. Dig in. Help us grow. And fill your well.
Fierce Women Dish launches April 7 with our attempt to answer this question:
Why do women hold each other to such high standards and then celebrate each other’s missteps?
Join us. Together, we can fill our wells.
