Tell the world what inequality means to you. Tell your story, share your view, debate and argue. Do it this Thursday, October 16 on Blog Action Day together with thousands of other bloggers.

Blog Action Day 2014

Bloggers, unite!
Since 2007, Blog Action Day have been gathering bloggers from around the world to put global important topics to the table. Together, we have massively hit the blogosphere with thousands of posts on water, climate change, poverty, food and the power of we. It is a brilliant initiative that creates a worldwide action, a global community, and a great dialogue. Again this year, Global Voices Online is proud to be an official partner.

If I say inequality, you say…?
The word inequality may bring many associations. Too many maybe; which is exactly why it is a crucial topic to bring to the headlines. Inequality could refer to healthcare inequality, economic inequality, global inequality, educational inequality, racial inequality, gender inequality, social inequality, and many more unequal constellations. Express your view and experiences in your blog, and let’s stand together in discussing inequality in all its forms.
