Index of 72-27 Posts

The 72-27 blog is a cross-generational dialogue between two Christian feminists, Letha Dawson Scanzoni and Kimberly B. George. The blog was active from July 2008 through November 2011. As Letha and Kimberly launched the blog in the summer of 2008, they were aware that the digits of their respective ages were exactly reversed. Letha was 72 and Kimberly was 27, hence the title and the numeric nicknames they used for their posts.
