Today is Blog Action Day — and this year we're joining pens, pads and keyboards to discuss inequality.

Blog Action Day has existed since 2007. It's a yearly event that sparks awareness and important discussions by uniting thousands of bloggers, focusing on one theme, and reaching a collective audience of millions. Over 1,500 bloggers have joined the initiative this year, coming from over a hundred different countries.

Have a thing or two to say about inequality?

Then participate in #Blogaction14 by registering your own blog. Write in any language, from any country. Also remember that a blog is a wide definition: Vlogs, podcasts, photos, design and social media sites all count. On Twitter, keep an eye on the hashtags #Blogaction14#Inequality and #Oct16
