Anything worth talking about, is worth blogging about

Send this woman to college

I urge all of my readers to go here and cast a vote for the essay there. It will allow the author to get a scholarship so she can go to college. She is an escapee from the Quiverfull/Christian Patriarchy movement and education will be a huge help for her. It will take only a few seconds you don’t have to provide any information to help.

So go vote.

  1. Reblogged this on Clarissa's Blog and commented:
    Let’s all help this brave woman escape from the clutches of religious fanaticism!

  2. Voted, and will mention this on my blog in a few. Go, Jennifer!

  3. Y’know, I absolutely despise the idea that something like this should be reduced to a popularity contest. I hate that the course of someone’s life can be determined in this way, not by the inherent value of what she is doing, but by how much support she can drum up online.

    That said, I still gave her a vote, and I hope she gets through.

    • I don’t like that it takes a vote to help others either.

      But it’s even worse that we allow people to use religion to oppress women and girls this way.
