Where My Girls At?

Alrighty Feminista readers, there are less than 10 days left in the DonorsChoose Blogger Challenge!

Thanks to the Working Mom Gourmet for the first and ONLY donation!

So, peeps, it's up to the rest of ya. I know that time is tough on all of us, but seriously, I'm asking for you to donate $5. One-two cuppa coffees this week, depending on how you like your java.

First the classroom:
Mr. B wants this funding ($356 or 71 donors at $5 each) because:
My students need to see 27 examples of women writers who are creating fiction that is captivating and relevant to their lives. I encourage the young women in my class to be leaders, and I am confident that they can help me make reading cool.
These books will be used in future classes, so your $5 will live on for years to come.

Next the thank you gifts:
I have been able to get a few fellow feministas to donate some items as swag for people who donate. If you donate at least $5, your name will go into a drawing for the following items:
  • A copy of Ellen Bravo's Taking on the Big Boys
    Why Feminism is Good for Families, Business, and the Nation
  • A copy of Leslie Bennett's The Feminine Mistake
  • A copy of Gloria Feldt's War on Choice: The Right-Wing Attack on Women's Rights and How to Fight Back
  • A University of South Carolina t-shirt from Ann Bartow of Feminist Law Professors
If you donate and then blog or twitter this you'll get one additional chance at the prizes per blog or twitter up to two. If you twitter and I'm not following you, @veronicaeye to let me know.

BUT...for the donor who gives the most will be your very own Poise Dots Meets Stripes tote. Cinnamon's bags are all hand-made and all materials used to make this bag are guaranteed to be sweatshop free and except for the snaps are made in the United States.

So what are you waiting for? Donate now!

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
