Viva La Feminista is one year old!

The party penguin is starting the party up a little late due to a hectic day of work and then a sushi party for the Chicago Abortion Fund. But enough about our work day, it's time to party!

One year ago I sat in front of a computer and started up this baby and woo-wee has it taken off far better than I had anticipated.

Thanks so much to everyone who visits or reads this lil blog on a regular basis. If you're stumbling thru, thank you too!

So what's a party with out some gifts?

Thanks to Mom Central, I have a two Preserve tooth brushes to give away! Yes, I'm giving tooth brushes away on my blog bday. Gotta a problem with that? Dental hygiene is important and then a toothbrush that's made of recycled yogurt cups? Keep your teeth clean AND be green!

And when it's time to get a new brush, you send your brush back to Recycline and they recycle it AGAIN!

Now that's getting a lot of use out of a yogurt cup.



But that's not all...My mother-in-law is awesome. Especially when she travels to China for work and brings me home some purses. She's gone enough times that I actually have too many bags! Can you believe it?


So here's your chance to get a free pouch.


To enter just leave a comment (with your email, if it's not on your Blogger profile) and leave me some love. Tell me your favorite post from the past year - no need to link to it, just say, "That time you ranted about X." Or just why you keep coming back. I'll pick winners at random.

I'm leaving for a mini-vacation tomorrow, so you have until Monday to leave a comment!

And again...THANK YOU for reading!

:) I can't believe you've been doing this for a year. It hardly seems like its been that long. I won't tell you a specific vent that I loved...I just want to thank you for venting at all...I find myself feeling insecure about how I feel about certain issues and so I keep my mouth shut. Thank YOU for not keeping yours shut.

Love you

Congratulations on your first blogiversary - you look so young :-)!

I have your blog in my Google Reader because the issues you talk about matter to me too, and you talk about them better than I do. Oh, and then there are the occasional book reviews and baseball talk, too.

Enjoy your mini-vacation, and keep it coming for another year!

Hi! Long-time lurker here, but I'm finally piping up to say Happy Blog Birthday!!!!

Can't pick a favorite post, but I'll have to say it was the one about Rayana and her choices about her pregnancies. I was heartbroken to hear about how her mom forbade her to abort during her first few pregnancies. I think it's very important to hear stories like this.

ok, i've been urged here enough by your twitter urging, so I am here, and I will vote, even though i ALWAYS lose when it comes to random votes, hence my general refusal to sign up for them!!!

Ok, my fav post here was your post with maya angelou and her poetry for hillary clinton. I liked to read the poetry because Maya is just amazing anyway, but I also liked how it was presented in a political way and that it inspired me to post my own posts about it.

and you do that a lot for me!!!!

ok, twitter urging--you can no longer guilt me!!!!
:-)

(and happy birthday to your bloggy, love)

Frederick, A Virtual Puppet Performance - Read by Michael Shannon

WOW...this is my first post during the Coronavirus pandemic! I hope you and your loved ones are healthy and safe. Thanks to the Chicago Children’s Theatre, the city’s largest professional theater devoted exclusively to children and families, for launching a new YouTube channel, CCTv: Virtual Theatre and Learning from Chicago Children’s Theatre. To kick if off we are treated to Frederick. Here's hoping this helps with your little ones. Or is a comfort to everyone of all ages. Chicago Children’s Theatre’s all-new virtual puppet performance was created while all of the artists were sheltering in place, working with resources limited to what they had in their homes or on their laptops. Frederick is directed by CCT Co-Founder and Artistic Director Jacqueline Russell. Puppets and sets were designed, built and puppeteered in a home studio by Grace Needlman and Will Bishop, CCT’s Director of Production, the creative team behind CCT’s annual series of Beatrix Potter puppet show

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
