Sex and the City

Claims have been made that Sex and the City is helping the feminist movement by showing women who have been sexually liberated.
What do you think?

Happy Mother's Day AND Happy Birthday to the Pill!

Today is Mother's Day. If you are lucky enough to have a mother who is living, in your life, and/or a positive role model, I hope you hugged her, called her, gave her a sappy card, or spent the day with her. Here are a few great things on the Internet about Mother's Day and feminism:

A Very Special Mother's Day Event at Tiger Beatdown: I really love Tiger Beatdown because it is fun and hilarious to read. I hope you like it, too.

The Longer I'm A Mom, the More I'm Pro-Choice by Robyn Marty at RH Reality Check

Mother's Day is for Feminists at Bitch Magazine: I especially love the tribute to my favorite fictional mother/daughter duo and TV feminists (I don't recall there ever being a specific mention to the Gilmores being feminists, but I do remember Rory having a pro-choice poster in her dorm room!)

It is also the 50th anniversary of The Pill. Now, the pill is not without its problems and Margaret Sanger was a racist, but uh, besides that mess, the pill is awesome, if you're okay with hormonal birth control. Thanks, birth control, for providing us with reproductive freedom!

With that said, I am thankful for my mother and for the pill. Both have helped me tremendously throughout my life. Hooray!

I'm still working on posting the rest of the 'zine pages to the blog (check it out! --> but I have to figure out how to convert some of the files to .jpg so it's awhile. I think most people gave permission to upload them, with a few who had amazing pages but wanted to remain anonymous. I'll hopefully get them all up by the end of the weekend! Everyone did an amazing job. I miss this class already :)

1st Girl in Major League Baseball?

I just read this story. Thought I'd share with my "virtual" home girls. ; )

This girl is an amazing athlete. She plays in Little League with the boys - not softball "for girls". She throws a pitch nobody can hit and she's got a great batting average. She's in Plant City, Florida. Check it out.
