My Week With a Feminist Activity Book Staff
Posted: May 19, 2016 9:28 AM
On the cover of The Feminist Activity Book, there is an object I mistook for a red, white, and blue rocket-ship popsicle. I was, you can imagine, a bit taken aback when a colleague explained to me that it was a (used) sanitary device. This was the first of many revelations, disillusionments, epiphanies, and nasty little shocks that were in store for me as I worked through the 40 or so pages of activities in this volume. My notes sum things up nicely: “Is that a—?”; “Those are real things that people use?”; “WHY?” “They’re allowed to print that?”; “What if a child picked up the book?”; “I have never heard of this.”
