Stavrositu, Carmen & Sundar, Shyam S.  Does Blogging Empower Women?  “Exploring the Role of Agency and Community”.  Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication  Volume 17.  Issue 4  (July 2012):  369-386.  Web.  17 Oct. 2012.

In changing my paper focus to what blogging does for women in general, this article defines two theories.  This article discusses how women who blog develop a strong sense of agency from blogging.  Blogging gives them a sense that they are competent and confident as well.  The article also discusses how blogging gives women a sense of community.  Readers are invited to interact with blogs in commenting.  By reading what other women have to say and feel, a sort of bonding occurs forming a community with fellow readers.
