Ruth – Aden – Nic – Dhonielle – Ashley

Yesterday these five strong women inspired me!


Questions these five have me thinking about:

  • What am I doing to keep RBG’s spirit alive? Somehow seeing my grandbaby wearing this onsie I purchaced at The Outrage gives me great hope!
  • Attending the evening book event that brought Nic Stone to town (and then is able to visit MY SCHOO this morning) gave me great hope! She was interviewed by two authors, Dhonielle Clayton, the founder of #Weneeddiverse books, and Ashley Woodfolk, wearing a t-shirt, We Need More Thinkiers, to promote an organization that I’ll be donating to. I recommend reading ALL books by these three authenic, honest, amazing black authors.

Which women inspire you today, this month, always?!!

PS – More about Nic Stone tomorrow
PSS – I’m co-hosting a Slicer Workshop with Fran McCrackin on Friday
(St. Patrick’s Day at 5pm – Wear green and come join us to chat about writing)

    I zoomed in to read Aden’s onesie and enjoyed exploring the Outrage site. Using all this women’s names was a good idea- made us want to know who each one was. And thx for the shout out for our slicer’s meet-up!

    I think it’s so important for women to find inspiration in other women. I’m a fan of the women you mention here. Love the onesie. My daughter-in-law is a quiet inspiration to me. She is an amazing mother, and I’m grateful for the love she gives my son. I’d love to attend your slicer workshop, but it’s too early for me. I’m subbing tomorrow and am on MST.
