Have you "liked" Viva la Feminista?

I decided it was time to start a fan page for Viva la Feminista. Not because I think this is the biggest and most awesome of blogs, but I know there are far more of you out there then I care to admit. That's my modesty peeking through. As I consider my 10th blogging anniversary, VLF is just over three years old and with this PhD thing, I'm not posting as much as I use to, I'm trying to do a few things to help keep us all in touch.

I also know that there are some of my Facebook friends who do like to read my stuff, but not everyone. So instead of feeding VLF RSS to my personal Facebook profile, I'm going to feed it to the VLF fan page.

I know it may seem strange, but I don't think I've ever promoted VLF over at Facebook. I guess it's because my whole point of joining Facebook was to connect with students in my program. Then after Zuck left everyone and their dog join Facebook, I walked a fine line between being me and being the director of a my office. Last year I started to move students over to my office profile. I'm still trying to make sure all that need to be moved are moved. I also am friends with people who just want to be connected to me, but I'm pretty sure, based on things I've posted at Facebook, would rather not be inundated with my blog posts. Thus the weird divide.

Anywho, head on over to Facebook and like this blog. I'm going to try to post a featured blog post when I can. I did today, so head on over and see what I loved reading today. Thanks!

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
