Global Voices Online – Mar. 10, 2006

International Women’s Day in Latin America

Latin American bloggers are not to be left out in remembering and celebrating the achievements and contributions of women throughout time as well as today. Many gains have been made towards gender equality in the region, but plenty of work still lies ahead as this post goes to show.

Landing at the Iraqi Blogodrome

Salam Adil’s latest contribution is a macabre and eye-opening look at the way Iraqi bloggers deal with the death all around them. Reading an excerpt from a blogger whose close friend lost her father, cousin, and uncle in just a few days’ time, one begins to realize the triviality of much of the blogosphere’s content by comparison. As Adil succinctly puts it, “in Iraq the horrific becomes the ordinary.” A glimmer of hope can be found in one writer’s predictions for Iraq after 2055.

Rolling Stones and U2 in Argentina

Global Voices’ newest contributor, Jorge Gobbi presents readers with what has been the nearly unanimous buzz of the Argentine blogosphere as of late: concerts by the Rolling Stones and U2. Each band played two shows in Buenos Aires and it appears that they didn’t disappoint any fans even if some political statements may have.

Hidden treasure in the Bahamas, office superstition in Indonesia, Latvia’s potential U.N. Secretary General, and much more can be found in today’s Global Roundups.

Get the blog buzz from East Asia, South Asia, the Americas, Middle East & North Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa, and Eastern Europe, Russia, Central Asia & the Caucasus.
