About Viva la Feminista

Viva la Feminista is a blog written by Veronica I. Arreola, who is trying to navigate and understand the intersection between feminism, motherhood and her Latinadad.

Veronica is a respected member of the Chicago and national feminist community having worked with organizations such as Planned Parenthood, Women Employed and the National Organization for Women. She lives in Chicago with her partner of over 20 years. 

By day Veronica works at a Chicago university.

Veronica began blogging waaaay back in the stone ages of blogging - late 2000 - to address her horrible case of post-election depression. In 2001, her Pro-choice Webring was featured a Village Voice story about how pro-choice activists were turning to the internet to organize against the Bush Administration. Veronica's former blog was one of the first to be written by a Latina about feminism. Since then she has contributed to a number of blogs. Viva la Feminista was born in 2007 as Veronica began to write professionally and decided she needed a new blog too. Veronica is a frequent speaker on many things feminist.

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
