Women's History Month

I'm a bad feminist, especially considering that I hold two minors in women's studies, for not having blogged about Women's History Month yet. Let's just say that the first week of March has been so full of work related work that I can't believe that today is the 6th.

I was also at a professional development conference all day today and a mentoring program dinner tonight and I'm pooped! So forgive me my readers...and now that I have this baby on Feedburner, I know I really do have some readers now. Well at least on peep's RSS readers...Tonight I am sending you off to read what the fabu women of Womenstake have to say about Women's History Month. I promise, I'll write my own ode to this estrogen filled month soon. Well at least before April.

The Women Who Came Before Us

by the National Women’s Law Center Staff

March is Women’s History Month. To celebrate, the staff here at the National Women’s Law Center have been thinking about a few of the women who inspired us to become the people we are today.

Almost 110 years ago, Susan B. Anthony sent a letter asking for support for the cause of women’s suffrage. She wrote, “With these dollars, we can push the work still further ‘till all women inside the home, as well as outside, shall be free to do as their consciences dictate, rather than as custom demands.” Her tenacity, and those words, have inspired me for many years. — Marcia Greenberger, NWLC Co-President

Is there love after abortion?

Over two years ago , way before I started writing for Girl w/Pen, Alison Piepmeier wowed me with an essay about getting an abortion and how her decision made with her husband was a love story : ...the story I most want to tell—and one I have never heard—is of abortion as an intimate part of a couple’s life together.  Our abortion was a love story. I’d worried that Walter and I were rejecting a gift from the universe.  What I discovered, though, was that when we stripped away the distractions of everyday life so that we could make this difficult decision together, it bound us together as surely as if our choice had been different—and as it turns out, that was the gift. Every once in awhile their story returns to me. I often don't know why it stumbles into my brain and says, "Hey! Ponder me!" but it does. This morning it returned to me yelling, "Why?!" I was half-listening to WBEZ's 848 and some story about a man running away from his life. Original, I kn

Book Review: Wolfpack by Abby Wambach

Less than a year ago, Abby Wambach took the stage at Barnard's commencement and gave a speech that shook many, including myself, to the core . Her speech went viral and I made the above image in order to share the highlights of her speech. Earlier this month Abby released the speech in book form. Wolfpack : How to Come Together, Unleash Our Power, and Change the Game is short (less than 100 pages) but is much more than just her speech . You get a peek into how the speech came together and why she said everything. And because the book is short and is an expanded speech, it moves quickly. I feel that it moves with the same ferocity that Abby use to move down a soccer field. And you might find yourself cheering as she takes you through the story. Abby has always been one of my favorite players. The way she ran amok on the pitch was exactly the way I felt I played sports. Never caring how you looked and giving it your all. Leaving it all on the field. When she retired from socc
