A Decade of Women of Color in Blogging: What Does WOC Mean?

3/2/2010 10:13:00 AM

by Nordette Adams


It's starting to feel like the term woman of color is being reduced to mean black woman, this and more as the writer looks at women of color in blogging

Nordette Adams will tell anyone that she's always been writer and poet, and anyone who knows her will say that she's also opinionated, which is why she enjoys writing as a contributing editor for BlogHer.com. It gives her a forum to say what she thinks.

At that site where women of all backgrounds speak their minds, Adams covers a variety of topics. For instance last week she wrote about the break in the Danziger Bridge case in New Orleans. The week before she wrote about the Lifetime Movie Network's premiere Sins of the Mother, a movie based on a book by fellow blogger Carleen Brice.

And this week she tackled a complicated topic that she says made her pull out her hair, a decade of women of color in blogging. The article caused her to wonder what does the term "woman of color mean," and why when she asked for the names of influential women of color blogs, most people sent her links to blogs written by black women.

"Now that the WOC piece has been published online, I see something else. There's no book on the topic of women of color in blogging that I could find, and the comments section of my article shows it's a topic worth a closer look," said Adams.

You may read the full article and the comments section at BlogHer.com here and listen to her podcast interview with Gina McCauley of What About Our Daughters, a high profile blog by a black woman, at BlogTalkRadio.com, "A Brief History of Black Women in Blogging."
