#BAD14, #BAD2014, "Blog Action Day"

I just got an email that sums it all in a nutshell:


The blogging community showed the power of sharing ideas, stories, opinions and dreams. 116 countries were represented on Blog Action Day 2014. More than 1700 bloggers  generated a conversation on inequality and an audience of millions saw that message.

“Malala knew the power she had to speak up for herself, and those who couldn't, by sharing her story. Authentic voices are always the best way to convey struggles of inequality and tell stories of our shared humanity.” — Malala Fund post

“Extreme inequality should not be ignored—or worse, celebrated as a sign that we have a high-performing economy and healthy society.” — Bill Gates' post

“Being a female and from a country where gender discrimination continues to be an enormous problem, I didn’t have to think twice about the topic to write on. The fight starts off from my mother’s womb.” — Blogger Rekha Dhyani's post
