This marks my 100th post on Fruitloop Feminism – yay! My story today isn’t one that recaps what I’ve written to date or celebrates all the super positive feedback I’ve received from my wild and crazy fans.

For a special version of Feminist Follow Friday, I’ve chosen to introduce you to some of New York City’s feministas. Not only are these women brilliant, they do their work in the biggest most cut throat city in the world.

If you follow me on Twitter, you would have seen that I scoffed at this recent article on HuffingtonPost.com written by Lisa Copeland on why Katie Couric was not married. I must confess that my scoff was premature. Upon reading the entire article, Lisa hit a nerve that really got my feminist brain thinking. Let me backtrack … Continue reading
