A very good speech. A woman on the twenty dollar bill would be awesome. It may even be a step toward equal pay for equal work. I come from a long line of abolitionists, suffragists, feminists, other protesters and public speakers. I started being in protests when I was very little. I've signed declarations and re-declarations. Maybe I will see the day when men and women are paid equally. One of my ancestors, a suffragist, climbed up onto someone's roof in her long heavy d...


This is the second time I have posted this. I am posting it again because what I am talking about is very important to me and many other people. I don't think at the time I truly understood the importance of what was happening that day in Seneca Falls, NY. I was in 1840s dress, My Mom was portraying Elizabeth Cady Stanton, And there was a declaration to be signed. It was Convention Days 2014. I met Nadia Shahram who was leading a movement for Muslim women. After...

After my Mom (as Elizabeth Cady Stanton) read the Declaration of Sentiments, Nadia and the other leaders of her group read the Declaration of Equalities. It was pow...

8 more girls have been abducted. Will you sign this petition made by Ify Elueze to help bring back all the girls that have been taken? (The photo is mine. It is not from any site.)

This is a video from the site UPWORTHY. It was originally posted on that site by Rajiv Narayan. To set the scene, the (poorly posed) question is referring to comments made by former Treasury Secretary and Harvard University President Lawrence Summers, who suggested that genetic differences could explain why there are fewer girls in science.

This is a poem I wrote a while ago that I thought would be nice to post. People, animals, and places in need. All suffering from humanity's greed. Living in a world that is changing bit by bit.

A step in the right direction.

The above is what Margaret Badore said in her post on the site treehugger. Please read the article for more information.


This is the video after the other one I posted. Just think of what a girl can do when she has the opportunity to do so.
