Welcome to the new blog–a sister, of sorts, to our podcast series, “In Their Shoes: Women Walking with Women Worldwide.” We got thinking about the fact that we often have books we’ve read, documentaries we’ve watched, or just things in the news that we’re keeping an eye on, that don’t always make it into a podcast episode. How could we share those things with people who have the same concerns we do? Why, a blog, of course!

So here it is, “In Their Shoes: The Blog.” We’ll be posting recommendations, news items, stories about people at work in the field, and all sorts of helpful things related to global issues having impact upon women and girls.

We’ll also be looking to you to help us–be sure to leave your own thoughts and suggestions in the comments on the blog. Your voice is important to the conversation!

You can follow this blog in a number of ways: subscribe through email, or subscribe to the RSS feed through your favorite blog reader. You’ll see links for both of those options in the sidebar. You can also subscribe through Networked Blogs in Facebook if you’d like–and be sure to like our Facebook page!

Again, welcome, and we’re glad you’re with us on the journey.
