Welcome to my new blog, On Gender. Thanks for stopping by. As we move into the new incarnation of Colorlines.com, we’ve been thinking about how to balance and broaden our editorial mix. A focus on gender and race has emerged as an arena where race, politics and culture intersect, sometimes in subtle ways that both empower and constrain us. While a number of “women’s” blogs have emerged lately, often as part of a broader effort to develop niches within the political blogosphere or reach out to a specific demographic, we’re trying to do something different here.
