Here’s what’s going on with this series. The feminist in me wants to ignite the feminist in you, and regularly share with you stories of some serious girl power. When I’m gushing over a woman who has done something that totally lights a fire under my ass, I will put them in the spotlight and that bundle of female magic will be featured here.
