I am committed and devoting my time to it, all the same. Proficiency with subject and materials is my goal and in the meantime, getting to know others of like-mindedness is refreshing. Challenge for this 2 weeks is "Women in History". I chose Gloria Steinem. Growing up in the days when her activism and message were tenacious, it was a true gift. She was and IS greatly influential to my growth and raising a daughter.

"Feminism has never been about getting a job for one woman, It's about making life more fair for women everywhere. It's not about a piece of the existing pie, there are too many of us for that. It's about baking a new pie." - Gloria Steinem
