Mary, about whom we've posted frequently, is among America's leading legal historians, the author most recently of Exporting American Dreams: Thurgood Marshall's African Journey (2008), and is at work examining war's impact on American law and politics. The Judge Edward J. and Ruey L. Guirado Professor of Law, History and Political Science at the University of Southern California Law School, Mary is a Distinguished Visitor at the University of Maryland School of Law and an Affiliated Scholar at Harvard University's Warren Center for American History.
She's also the founding mother of one of my daily must-read websites, Legal History Blog. Mary's great work there inspired IntLawGrrls. And her help along the way -- like her decision to feed our most recent headlines onto her own blog -- has sustained us since our IntLawGrrls' gestation and birth more than a year and a half ago. In her guest post below, which we've reposted from LHB with her permission, Mary surveys recent "Do Women Blog?" queries. She then offers practical tips on how women can give voice to other women; my own thoughts are also below.
