I met her in quite an ordinary setting. It was at a gym and I walked in around about 10 am ( I was in between jobs then) and made a wisecrack about the parking situation to which the sassy receptionist came back at me at an instant with a stinging retort. As I walked in, I... Continue Reading →

Sadie Nardini Anybody?

Feminism- Way Down Under!

I was first introduced to feminism in university in the land down under, Australia. One afternoon during a rather intense game of Call of Duty, I heard rhythmic chants and the mumbled voices of protest.
