I’ve known Daniel Hernandez for a few years now, and I must say he is one of the most realistic individuals I know– especially when it comes to business. As he’s said to me on many occasions- “You can love doing something, but what’s real is the need to make money!” And I’ve watched him do just that […]

  • Remember #BringBackOurGirls? This Is What Happened In The 5 Months Since

    My new essay explores how Beyonce’s feminist stance in pop culture helped frame my own feminist awakening:

    “I am in my 30s and was emboldened by Beyonce’s feminist stance on that stage, and can’t help but believe that that image will be equally as powerful to young people who witness that moment, whose first engagement with feminism will be that moment. Maybe, just maybe, Beyonce will serve as the bridgebetween pop culture and feminists like bell and Barbara and Audre, maybe some young woman bobbing her head to ‘Blow’ or ‘Partition’ or ‘Flawless’ will do so while reading Ain’t I A Woman? or Homegirls or Sister Outsider.”
