I honor all the women who came before me and blazed trails that give me life and hope. From Suffragettes like Emmeline Pankhurst  to Civil Rights Activists like Angela Davis, strong and determined women have pushed back against oppression and discrimination. And we have much to still learn about being feminists and holding an intersectional lens; watch Kimberlé Crenshaw speak on this important topic.

Today I’m appreciating local community members who call attention to the need to support women-owned businesses. And I want to add that I stand strongly for all women, trans and cis. This recent post by Nora’s Kitchen included my business as one to support in Portland, Oregon. Thanks friends!
