Similarly, female perspectives on domestic and international issues are often missing from the online debate.In celebration of International Women's Day, here are three little-known but thought-provoking blogs written in English by Lebanese ladies across the world. The 25-year-old former English and philosophy teacher, originally from the south, has since moved to the U.S., from where she began her blog last summer.The posts are often long and academically written, a world away from the more skim-friendly fodder of other blogs. Daher may have grown up in Europe, but her thoughts are strictly focused on Lebanon and the Middle East. The 29-year-old Lebanese writer, currently based in Switzerland, actually runs two blogs, of which Myrhh and Mint is her personal creative outlet. For Daher, blogging is a form of therapy, a "venting outlet". It's a place where she can organize her thoughts and share her writing with a larger audience, such as her popular series Tales of the Phoenix City, a number of intersecting stories about the life of Beirutis. A heartfelt mash-up of creative writing and personal essays, Myrrh and Mint offers up a stimulating exploration of women's rights, feminism and the little-discussed subject of sexual and reproductive health and rights.
