Little Women

Though I get the Me Too Movement, and yes, I am connected, I never felt like I needed to waive the flag of injustice. Until now. Not so much as a woman, or even as a victim of the same culture that Professor Blasey-Ford fell victim too decades ago, but as a citizen of the … More Little Women

Fallout
