Happy Birthday

Karl sent me this Roz Chast color chart for my birthday.

A friend of ours told me today was your birthday.

ps: Here’s a New Yorker cartoon that made me laugh…maybe you’ll be amused by it, too.

An Old Fashion Protest

From another friend of BadGirls, Elaine.

Title IX flashback – women rowers at Harvard in the 1970s
Came across this today about women rowers at Harvard protesting unequal conditions.  The power of teammates and of athletics!

“I felt the magnificence of the moment: standing up for myself, for all of us, surrounded and strengthened by my compatriots. Forget those rower boys who thought our beloved sport belonged only to them, who thought their disgusting nicknames for us could intimidate and dissuade us. The power of “crack,” “sweat hog” and “inhuman scum” drained away, along with my sense of loneliness. I had found my place, where I didn’t have to diminish my dreams or sacrifice myself to gain acceptance or affection. I could stand tall and strong without stooping to accommodate the prejudice or preferences of others, buoyed and bolstered by my teammates.”
