"On Saturday, at the first ever Mumsnet Blogfest, held in central London, 300 women and a handful of men took trolls to task, exchanged stories about their most offensive tweets, slated misogynist detractors, shared tips on going viral and offered support to one another."
Mines the power of women bloggers as a cultural force in the U.K. and across the world, pointing out that Mumsnet bloggers still face sexist obstacles.
Notes that Mumsnet has been poked fun of in sexist ways, but the festival could have sold out at least 3 times over, and women have power in communities across the web. Blogging empowers the women with a voice, and each has her own story about why and how she blogs.
