The article considers the integration of Web logging and other electronic formats into women's studies classrooms. This initiative was launched at a classroom activity that sought to analyze self-identified feminist Web logs. In preparation for this activity, students were asked to discuss the suppression and dismissal of women's writing. The concepts they learned from this exercise were applied to the context in which blogs are produced. As a result, students wrote essays that dealt with recurring themes of reproductive rights, gender equality, sexuality and popular culture.
