Feminist Wednesday on Empowering Women Radio

Screen Shot 2015-01-30 at 10.37.24 AMCheck out the brand new interview with Erin from Feminist Wednesday on Empowering Women Radio with Dr. Shellie Hipsky. In this interview Erin talks about how she came into her feminism and why she felt called to create Dream, Girl:

“There is something so romantic about a film and I think it is truly the most powerful media we have. I mean its one thing to read a story or have someone tell you advice but to see these women actually living that in their life…to be able to feel Mariama’s energy…it’s so much more impacting.”

Meet Amanda from Revolution Buffalo

Amanda

I am so excited to introduce you to my dear friend Amanda Moses! Amanda and I have known each other since high school and I am so proud of her and the Revolution Buffalo team for the success of their brand new indoor cycling and spinning studio. The courage, perseverance, and passion of starting a brick and mortar business is not easy to come by and I was so excited to dig in and find out what inspired her! Check out what I learned below.

Introduce yourself to our readers & tell us how the idea of Revolution Buffalo came to be?

Hi Feminist Wednesday! My name is Amanda Moses and I am a born and bred Buffalonian. I am a Certified Public Accountant by day and a gym rat by night. I love all things fitness related, from indoor cycling, to weight lifting and yoga, to my absolute favorite, TRX. In between number crunching and ab crunching, I strive to find time to maintain balance and spend time catching up with family and friends. So it only seemed natural that I find a way to merge the fitness and social factor into one. A great friend and fellow Sacred Heart Alumnae (what can I say, SHA breeds strong and motivated women!), Rachel McCrone (Bratton), had been instructing indoor cycling for a few years and casually mentioned, “Wow, we could totally do this!” I nodded, thought it was great, and we let the idea go.

Then this summer, things fell into place for us… Continue reading…

I’m a male feminist and I love it!

In my short time of getting more comfortable with the appellation, my perception is that more men need to be involved in it as well (nod to Emma Watson and HeForShe). It’s clear that men are, in general, less comfortable with claiming feminism as their own.

Sexual Assault: You’re Not Alone

Rich1By Rich

I was sexually abused when I was a child.
(There, I said it.)
I was sexually abused by a family member when I was a child.
(That’s even more uncomfortable to say.)
I was sexually abused by a male family member when I was a child.
(This is getting more and more difficult.)
I was sexually abused by a male sibling when I was a child.
(OK. It’s out there now.)

OK, I said it—out loud—and here in print—to a number of people. I’ve admitted that this happened to me. So I guess it can only get better from here.
Right?
