Happy Monday!

Forget what you know about the police and homeland security for just a moment, and enjoy the fact that this woman made it all the way to the top of her chosen (and notoriously male-dominated) career..after having a baby at fifteen and dropping out of high school. I salute her.*

And while you're in DC, take a trip to this delightful museum and library. Apparently, it is America's first feminist library...

And then, just because I love this song, have some Melissa! Have a wonderful week, women!



*You understand that while I applaud her amazing achievement, I'm not actually raising my hand to my brow...

Very inspiring links.

Thanks for the comment on lads' mags. I've just blogged on the misogynist stereotypes in Big Brother - let me know what you think :)

hello dear pippa! i just wanted to respond to your comment on my blog about linking. i'm not good at trackbacks either, but oon blogger to link to a specific post, click on the time the post you want to link was posted (for this one of yours it's 10:19 and gives you this http://salfordfeminist.blogspot.com/2007/01/happy-monday.html) and then just paste that instead of the main blog link. does that make sense?
xoxo, jared
