Here's the thing with the history of activist women--there are layers upon layers, and finding even the first layer is a radical discovery. Two or three layers in, and you can't believe what you didn't know, what you should have always known. You can't believe what has been kept from you, kept from us all--and you find yourself wanting to tell the explosive secret of our shared history to the world. You find yourself wanting to be the telltale heart, beating beating the truth so loud that you force the country to pry up the floorboards and discover the truth of our own madness.

I had the pleasure of speaking with the Academy-Award winning director of Brave, Brenda Chapman, at the Virginia Children's Book Festival last month. Listening to Brenda’s perspectives on creating Brave, as well as what has shaped her as a feminist and a writer, was truly a gift of an experience, and I am thrilled to be able to share it:  https://elizabethhallmagill.wordpress.com/2015/11/06/an-interview-with-brenda-chapman/

A deeply spiritual, deeply political consciousness animates these pages, and that is the greatest evidence of the Divine Feminine there is, for She is not passive, but an active force moving in and around and through us all.  https://elizabethhallmagill.wordpress.com/2015/07/10/she-rises-a-book-review/

Mary Carroll-Hackett is both an astounding poet and a dear friend--check out her site, and share. This is a woman who knows how to start a revolution while she's singing a lullaby--she loves the whole world through her words, and you just can't help but love her right back:

“Some people think that spirituality is not justice-oriented, that spirituality is otherworldly and has nothing to do with the affairs of the world. To me, spirituality has to be incorporated into every aspect of our lives. Spirituality calls us to care deeply and to be involved, to realize our interconnectedness, to let our hearts ‘break’ open by daring to see clearly the pain around us and to act against injustice, inequality, and oppression with compassion and wisdom.” —Cheng Imm Tan
