Before I read Grassroots: A Field Guide for Feminist Activism, I didn’t even know about third-wave feminism and the importance of social activism. Thanks to Jennifer Baumgardner and Amy Richards, I began to look at life in a new way. A few years ago, I emailed the duo to thank them for their inspiration. Then, I had the pleasure of interviewing Jennifer (I was nervous because I was a bit star-struck!) for my women’s book.
And now, the two will appear at Powell’s Books in Downtown Portland on Wednesday, Oct. 8th at 7:30pm. WOOHOO! I will actually get to meet two of the women that helped set me on my path. So cool!
Jennifer will be promoting her new book: Abortion & Life and Amy will be promoting: Opting In: Having a Child without Losing Yourself.
You do not want to miss this historic event.
Hope to see you there!
This just in: Baumgardner & Richards will also be at Portland State University on Wednesday at 12pm in the Multicultural Center.
