 Election time is just around the corner (that or the rest of us are just eagerly anticipating when it actually is) so I thought I would post a few links today on getting to know your candidates on a somewhat under reported aspect - their stances on women's rights.  Read more for helpful (in my opinion anyway) links.

      So while riding the information super highway today, i came across this little gem over at the ever excellent blog Feministing. How utterly amazing right?

With all the good press veganism has gotten lately, much of the bad press is fading into the background, such as veganism ... Read More
So two weeks ago, I received my Diva Cup in the mail, just in time for my monthly visit from 'Goddess Moon'. What timing! What an omen!
