July 30th, 2010 · No Comments

I’m really excited for my 15 minutes of fame tomorrow at the 25th annual Bughouse Square Soapbox Debates in Chicago.

It’s meant to commemorate Bughouse Square’s legacy from […]

John Mayer, you suck ass

October 19th, 2009 · 2 Comments

I’m sorry, I know this is slightly off-topic for Girldrive, given that I try to spotlight young women doing gutsy, feministy things. But seriously, John Mayer is an asshead.

May 21st, 2009 · No Comments

Thought I’d link to this piece (better late than never), an amazing and thoughtful review of the fourth book in the Belladonna series, which honors Emma, written by Ellen Kennedy Michel of RainTaxi Review of Books. It has a lot to say about Girldrive, too–and it’s very spot-on. An excerpt about my essay in Belladonna: […]
