Can’t LIVE Without Celebrating Women’s History Month

March is women’s history month and women and girls have a special place in my life. Which is kind of funny, because when I was younger I so did not love being a girl. I was not feeling everything from having to wear skirts ad dresses while my brother wore pants and it was freezing cold, to not being able to play certain sports like my brother did because I was a girl, to being offered dancing lessons instead of boxing lessons because I was a girl and shouldn’t want anyone hitting and bruising my face, to the whole period and child labor thing. Yeah no, not feeling the girl/woman thing. But things changed. Life has a habit of doing that and with it I have not only fallen in love with all of the beauty and mystery that comes with being a woman, but the importance of educating, supporting, advocating for, recognizing, crying with, standing with, and celebrating women. So this month a few ways I’ve done that and will continue to do that includes

Performing in  Eve Ensler’s A Memory, A  Monologue, A Rant, and a Prayer in Philadelphia to raise money for Women In Transition
