Favorite Quote: ‘”Feminism is a collective adventure, for women, for men, and for others. A revolution, well underway. A vision of the world, a choice. It’s not about pitting women’s little advantages against men’s little gains, but about blowing everything up.” – Virginie Despentes, King Kong Theory

In her free time she reads feminist authors.
