Check out the guest blog posts by amazing folks such as Alex Gino, Carol Jenkins, Margarita Engle, and Phyllis Lyon, who shared their thoughts about what feminism means to them, in celebration of Pitman’s launch. “Everyone had something different to share, ” Pitman says. “And all of it was incredibly powerful. Their voices confirmed for me that feminism is far from dead, it’s relevant to everyone, and it’s needed in a big, big way. Especially now.”
