Beyoncé Covers Complex For Their ‘Might Fly’ August/September Issue

It seems the time has come to devote a post to some of the ladies out there making cultural contributions. Of course there's Nicki Minaj and Britney Spears tearing up the summer concert circuit, and there are other gals performing, writing, politicizing... Gals we pity, gals we love and gals we love to hate (Palin, Anthony, Abedin, Clinton...)

Sreyneath Poole is a young blogger who has begun documenting “inspiring Cambodian women”. Her blog project wants to dispute the traditional belief that Cambodian women belong to the kitchen. This is her story. Kounila Keo· reports for Global Voices :
On her blog Sreyneath writes: "This project was inspired after my essay on Cambodian women in politics and their discrimination in the public service. In my conclusion of the essay I wrote that Cambodian woman will continue to be discriminated against because of traditional values.

"Inspiring Cambodian Women" is set up in the hope of inspiring the world, especially Cambodian women, to stand up and make their voice be heard; to be active in their community or in the world. Even if tradition plays a huge obstacle, women can look up to women role models and be inspired to overcome the obstacles that they will face.

My hope is for the global community to become aware of incredible Cambodian women who put their time and effort to the development of their local community.

Through blogging, I hope to inspire women and youth to become an active member in their local and global community."

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
