Writing at the intersection of motherhood, feminism and my Latinidad

Work it, Mom and DonorsChoose GIVEAWAYS!

Today at Work it, Mom! I'm complaining about Columbus Day.

Also, if you haven't noticed, but I joined the DonorsChoose Blogger Challenge. Thanks to the generosity of one reader & a good friend, one class is fully funded. BUT we still have $356 to go to fully fund Mr. B's classroom and their goal of buying books by women authors:

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.

I'm not sure that by getting the girls to love reading that the boys will follow, but I do agree that the young women in his class need women authors to discover.

I have the following giveaways for anyone who donates at least $5 thru my donors page by the end of the month:
  • 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
  • And at least one more goodie to come!
Winners will be chosen using random.org and notified as soon I can after Halloween. Check back to this post to see if any new goodies come in from my networks that can be offered.
