A New Kind of Post Feminism

In the new year, I will be back to business as your local feminist mail carrier. And the mail bag overflows with remarkable letters!
Make sure you keep an eye on the blog as I will be showcasing individual works along with artist statements. There sure are some stunning works and great stories.

And don't forget - your voice matters too. Be "in correspondance" with a letter you feel is speaking to you, or write one of your own. Just join in the growing conversation!

Exhibition Teaser!

Here is just a small excerpt of text from a work submitted to Love Letters to Feminism. Thanks to Lori Stewart for sharing the love a little early.

12 of the Many Reasons We Need Feminism:

1. Because gender selection exists.

5. Because very few boys are named Sue... and a lots of girls are named Taylor and Morgan and Mackenzie and...

10. Because rape is a deliberate war strategy.

Want to see the full list? The exhibition opens one week tomorrow. See posts below for details, and make sure to come to the party on October 15th!

Can't Make Tomorrow's Deadline? Don't Let That Stop You!

If you are interested in submitting a love letter for the exhibition and you just can't get it done in the next 24 hours, do not fear! There are still great opportunities for you to be a part of this project. The exhibition, which opens on October 4th, will be a dynamic one, allowing for works to be added until it closes at the end of December. Get your work in by tomorrow to secure prime wall real estate, but if that doesn't work for you, get that letter in the mail at a date that works better for your schedule!
