On a day of remembrance, BlogHer Community Shares Nearly 200 Accounts of the Day, Reflecting Personal Experiences from Ground Zero to Around the Globe

BlogHer, Inc. (http://www.blogher.com), the premium cross-platform media network and publisher for women, today thanks its community for sharing their stories and perspectives of 9/11 on the tenth anniversary of the attacks.

Writings by women range in topic from painful remembrances to new traditions, from analyses of global policy to purely personal reflections, highlighting the role social media has played in the last ten years to give birth to community reporting and citizen commentary.

“Reading the voices of women in remembrance of 9/11, embracing their right to a free press, has been a very moving experience,” said BlogHer Co-founders Elisa Camahort Page, Jory Des Jardins and Lisa Stone, in a joint statement. "Thanks to technology and, in large part, the seminal drive to community journalism that the events of 9/11 became, women are telling their own stories about what these attacks mean to their families and their world views -- that day, in the years since, in the future."

Readers can find these stories on individual independent blogs by women. BlogHer is compiling a growing list of links here: http://www.blogher.com/document-our-911-stories-share-your-posts-past-10-years.
