This just in: the International Women’s Health Coalition just launched a blog called Akimbo about sexual and reproductive rights and health around the world.

They have a bunch of youth partners who are at the Commission on the Status of Women at the United Nations this week who will be blogging about their experiences there. Check out staff member Chelsea Ricker’s post, for instance, about the embarrassment of being a US-based activist.

The blog will be carrying input from feminist activists from around the world – including video interviews and posts by advocates from places like Nigeria, India, and Brazil.

A hearty welcome from this corner of the feminist blogosphere to new blog Akimbo! So very glad you’re here.
