Zuzu: Why Calling Out Misogyny Matters

Susie Madrak: Media Bias

In particular, note Eric Boehlert's assessment (in Susie's piece) of the blogosphere's dereliction of duty on behalf of Hillary and the unfair media treatment she's gotten: "What's happening online now is potentially dangerous: HRC has gotten dreadful press, not fair, 'gotcha,' and so on—there's a portion of the blogosphere that has ignored that and there's a portion that has encouraged that. [...] [W]e can't very well say, 'You can't go after our candidates … except this one'."

The deafening near-silence on "Blue Dress Day" was one of the most disappointing days for me as a progressive feminist blogger in almost four years of blogging.
