It’s been true for a while now, but I’m making it official: Girldrive, as an ongoing presence in the blogosphere, is dead. I will no longer be posting updates, takes on the news, or Your 2 Cents. As much as I have loved maintaining this site for the last four years, I need to concentrate […]

Happy New Year!

January 16th, 2011 · 3 Comments

Well hello there. Please excuse the long hiatus…I’ve been traveling the country for all kinds of reasons (which is what a Girldriver does best, so yall shouldn’t be that mad!). First, a Nona update: I’m still at WNYC, doing some work for their music talk show, Soundcheck. And I don’t mind telling you I’ve already […]

One Nation: pre-party on Thursday!

September 10th, 2010 · 3 Comments

Has everyone heard of One Nation, the march on October 2 that plans to bring progressive, lefty-thinking people from across the country together in one place? Well, if not, kindly carve out space in your schedule for it. And read up on the march while you’re at it. It’s going to encompass a lot of […]

Real quick: Girldrive discussed on Firedoglake

August 31st, 2010 · No Comments

Last Sunday, I participated in a book salon at Firedoglake, which back in March invited me to host a discussion about Anne Kornblut’s book, Notes from the Cracked Ceiling. The shoe was on the other foot Sunday, though: Girldrive was in the spotlight. It was a great discussion, particularly because the host, 18-year-old blogger wunderkind […]

Summer break…

July 9th, 2010 · No Comments

Things have been quiet around these parts for the last 10 days, and they’re gonna be for another week or so. I’m not exactly on vacation so much as in a major life transition. So I’m gonna take a little while to concentrate on my now-permanent home…never fear, though, I’ll be guest-blogging for Feministe in […]

Girldrive the song: Video edition!

May 26th, 2010 · No Comments

I’ve blogged before about Ray McKenzie of the Jen Justice Band writing a song about Girldrive…but the only thing I had to offer was the acoustic version. This is a new and improved, live, plugged-in, girl-singer version that I needed to post immediately. It’s kinda hard to hear the lyrics over the din, so I’ve […]

April 14th, 2010 · No Comments

Check out this video on M.I.S.S., where I answer questions about Thelma and Louise, the problem feminism has with race, and Girldrive Part 2. And here’s me talking about Women Making History (this video is kind of big even on the smallest setting–sorry!): Also check out the interview I filled out on the website (one […]

Books are expensive…

March 17th, 2010 · No Comments

…so if you’re hurtin’ for cash, win a copy of Girldrive from M.I.S.S. All you have to do to enter is comment under the review about what feminism means to you. Oh, and stay tuned for an upcoming video interview I did for them–it treads on some unfamiliar ground. Speaking of San Francisco media, Girldrive […]

Feminist free association!

March 8th, 2010 · 3 Comments

The ladies from Seal Press and I took to the Berkeley streets last week, asking people to say the first word that came to their mind when they heard: “choice” “movement” “man” “woman” and, finally, “feminist.” The idea was to distill the concept of “Girldrive” down to one word, and also get some guys’ opinions […]
