Introducing myself and my journal: For the Women
I am a mother, student, and activist. My son is 4, and I want him to grow up in a world where men and women respect each other and see each other as equals. I am a student at the University of Washington pursuing concurrent degrees in law and public policy. I direct Bald Solidarity, an NGO that works to promote the rights of women and end life-threatening discrimination against women through fundraising and an annual head-shaving event.
