Vote for Sheril

One of our recent posts–Sheril’s much-read “Singled Out“–is in the running for the Three Quarks Daily 2009 Science Prize for science blogging. We encourage those of you who enjoy this site, and who liked that very courageous post, to head on over and give us your vote. And thanks in advance for considering us.

Since launch yesterday, Arikia Millikan has volunteered to create a central website (I’ll share the url when it’s live) and reader Christine set up a facebook group, which already swells with over 1,100 members. There have been a deluge of excellent blog posts, including one by Nicholas Kristof–author of the NYTimes piece that inspired me to act. I’ve been most touched by your emails of personal stories, making it clearer than ever that sexual abuse continues to be dramatically under reported here in the United States as well.

The Intersection
On Becoming A Domestic And Laboratory Goddess
The Questionable Authority
Adventures in Ethics and Science
Blog Of The Moderate Left
Seattle Grassroots Examiner

We’ll continue posting stories, updates, and progress (as well as regular Intersection topics) throughout the month. Tremendous thanks to all who have joined the initiative so far.  In less than 24 hours, we’ve started to create momentum.

..and this is only the beginning.
