If, like, just 10 more people voted only for women jugglers, there would be double the number of women in the top 40 this year.

Really. Wes Peden doesn’t need your vote. I don’t need your vote. Wes Peden didn’t vote for any dudes. I’ll be voting for at least half of these:

Dulce Duca - the best show I saw all year
Amal Basalama - first woman winner of a National level Fight Night
Kathrin Pancakes - also a great German language teacher (handy for getting German citizenship this year)
Florence Huet - best act in the EJC gala
Erin Stephens - IJA and instagram stuff
Cinthia Buitrón - still better than everyone
And other performances/follows this year that stand out:
Daniela Paličková
Liza van Brakel
Ariane Oechsner
Helena Berry
Sophia Oltmans

Haha! :D Naming every female juggler you know about, or how did I get on that list? I don't even make videos... I participate in one from last January, though, but I only have a small part in it. Oh, right, I'm in one from June, too. Don't think that one is public, though, only posted on Facebook by a friend. :)

Yes, I named all that Burrage forgot :op mostly not knowing, though, who's been active in 2019.

And Top 40 isn't only about videos, but about like "who inspired you most?" too, .. you could even name Jenny Jaeger or so.

.. and one more thing about your part and about videos ( I remember you logging one as a group, for a show, where you walked in circles and did passing ) .. logging constantly several times per week in years is a source of tracking a juggler's progress, that you don't get from people posting clips of their best runs, and is in a way a precious insight into reallike everyday's business of a juggler. Generally, it's hugely underrated, I find, how many things aren't (in case: at all) conveyed by a vid, but only by spoken \written language, e.g. how a trick or a run or a pattern feels, how s.o. got there, what made it click, how to think a trick, a sequence, what to focus on an' all such things.

Unrelated to the OP, but that's why I started doing a brief commentary for almost every Instagram pattern I've posted in the last couple months. I had trouble understanding how some jugglers thought about their patterns, and figured others would have the same issue with mine.

True, it's not all about videos, but if you don't post videos and don't perform, most people will probably not even know who you are.

This post worked!

I'm curious: did it? Did votes for women go up after this post was made?
