About Me: 

I've spent more than two decades as a multimedia producer, activist, and writer, specializing in radio and print with an emphasis on social justice, feminism, peace, women's culture, and human rights. I'm the former assistant director of the literature program for the National Endowment for the Arts and the author of seven literary anthologies. With Julie Parker Benello, I'm the co-founder of the Women's Media Fund (www.womensmediafund.org), a field of interest fund at the Global Fund for Women. Last year I completed a 241-mile peace pilgrimage in India, a re-enactment of Mahatma Gandhi's 1930 Salt March. In addition to long walks, I enjoy time with family and friends, my peace and justice community, reading books by women from around the world, foreign films, travel, laughter yoga, canoeing on backwaters and rivers, listening to music, biking, and the oldest medium of all, conversation.
