(Think: A Radical Chicken Soup for the Feminist Soul.) These first person stories of strength, perseverance and courage will serve as inspiration to women and girls as they continue their work in or enter the movement.” Stories will be published weekly at their website and they are looking to collect and publish the stories as well.
