Women in social media celebrate Digital Sisterhood Month from December 1 to December 31, 2010.
By: Ananda Leeke
Digital Sisterhood Month is the brainchild of Ananda Leeke, a lawyer turned innerpreneur, author, artist, coach, and yoga teacher, who established the online celebration to give women an opportunity to celebrate their connections, conversations, communities, collaborative partnerships, and commerce. It begins on December 1 with three online events. See below.
1) All day on http://twitter.com
Women will use the Twitter hashtag #DigitalSisterhood to celebrate the weekly Digital Sisterhood Wednesday event. They will be encouraged to tweet about their digital sisters, organizations, and causes like the Red Pump Project that promote HIV/AIDS awareness on World AIDS Day. Visit www.theredpumpproject.com.
2) 7:00-7:15 am EST on http://stickam.com/
Leeke will teach a Digital Sisterhood Online Yoga class for social media users that focuses on kind and gentle office yoga.
3) 9:00-10:00 pm EST – http://tweetchat.com/
Leeke will host a discussion on how women have used the power of their online voice to raise awareness in 2010. Women will use the Twitter hashtag #digitalsisterhood to participate and follow the discussion.
