I desire a world where women have choice. I desire a world where women are safe to tell people in power their desires. I desire a world where women are able to be a voice for those who don’t have one. I desire a world where women can be free to do whatever they want with no judgment.

I spend a big chunk of my life on Twitter and let me just say, this is not my grandma’s GOP and this hateful, angry speech towards other women is not going to help a gosh darned thing. The resisterhood doesn’t work without sisterhood. About one million years ago – give or take 20 years – I was assigned Susan Faludi’s “Backlash” as a textbook in a women’s studies class at the University of Utah.

awe According to Merriam-Webster, AWE is an emotion variously combining dread, veneration, and wonder that is inspired by authority or by the sacred or sublime. The last 5 weeks of my life have been filled with incredible AWE… The kind of AWE that made me sob tears of joy upon seeing the space shuttle for the first time, thus fulfilling a childhood dream…the dream of being an astronaut… The kid of AWE that I felt when my 3 beautiful stepchildren looked me in the eye, held my
