The Top 10 Blog Posts of 2012December 28, 2012
We’re throwing our hat into the lists-of-2012 ring with a roundup of our top 10 most popular blog posts. From analysis of television and pop culture to updates on our work to empower women, these posts illustrate the work we’ve done together.
In honor of International Women’s Day, we highlighted five former AAUW International Fellows who are empowering women across the globe.
AAUW created our very own bingo cards to help readers engage in (or stay awake for) the presidential debates.
A week before Melissa Harris-Perry launched her own TV show on MSNBC, AAUW interviewed the fellowship alumna on her rise as an academic and a political analyst.
AAUW Outlook Editor Hannah Moulton Belec makes a compelling case as to why voter-identification laws are nothing more than “old-fashioned voter suppression.”
Two weeks after AAUW hosted Sandra Fluke at our national office, Rush Limbaugh used his bully pulpit to make offensive remarks about her. This post called on AAUW members and supporters to stand up for Sandra.
Sandra Fluke, Sara Hutchinson from Catholics for Choice, Washington Post writer Ann Gerhart, and AAUW’s own lobbyist Lisa Maatz sat down for a panel discussion on why birth control was still an issue in 2012. This post profiles the February event.
Featuring a video celebrating women’s gains since getting the right to vote in 1920, this post encouraged readers to celebrate the 19th Amendment’s birthday by getting ready for the 2012 election.
The holidays are coming to a close, but this list of empowering, gender-neutral gift ideas will be useful for any gift-giving occasion.
Kids watch a lot of TV, which is why female characters playing nontraditional career women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) are so important. This post features TV and movie characters who make great role models for girls.
We wouldn’t have a top 10 list if it weren’t for you — our readers. On behalf of all the blog’s writers and editors, thank you for reading in 2012. We’ll see you next year.
