So, we’ve got the ball rolling on the Gingerbread Feminists blog. However, there are still questions about how to make this the bet kind of space for conversation. I want to have this discussion on the blog because how we create this space and how we conduct our dialogue is as much of an important issue as any of the other topics that might be raised. How we are communicating with each other is as important as the content.
So, here are a few questions for starters:
What kind of space can Gingerbread Feminists be?
How can it be an open and a safe space? I don’t believe this is an either or situation (i.e. freedom of speech vs political correctness), so I’d love to hear some thoughts on how to create both.
Do we need a sense of guidelines for contributors?
What does it mean for this space to be feminist, pro-feminist and feminist-questioning?
Do we need a clearer sense of why this space exists and what it is about?
