Asian Women Blog Carnival #3

Hello folks. It seems a bit quiet here for the last little while. So I thought I'd have a little poke and announce that I will be hosting the 3rd Asian Women Blog Carnival =) The call for submissions can be found here. The theme of this carnival is the intersection of culture and sexism. Considering the SIS vs. PAS dust-up in Malaysia, I would very much like to hear from my fellow Malaysians on what sexism constitutes of in Malaysia.

I would greatly appreciate it if you could please spread widely, too, as this carnival is for all Asian women and allies. Otherwise we have a ton of American-centric blog posts and that's no fun! XD

Mods, if the post is off-topic, please feel free to delete!

10 Worst Countries to be a Blogger

Came across this:

Burma is the worst place in the world to be a blogger.

Iran, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, and Egypt have emerged as the leading online oppressors in the Middle East and North Africa.

China and Vietnam, where burgeoning blogging cultures have encountered extensive monitoring and restriction, are among Asia’s worst blogging nations. Cuba and Turkmenistan nations where Internet access is heavily restricted, round out the dishonor roll.
