The Hunger Game is one of the most popular young adult novel series’, rivaling Harry Potter and Twilight. As the first of its film adaptations was just released in March 2012, readers and audiences have been pleasantly surprised at this fresh, dynamic, young female protagonist.

This blog is about the endeavors of women. I feel there is a growing need for activism in the current political climate. I will showcase: LBGT rights, body positive imagery, pro-choice, birth control, reproductive rights, safe sex, sex positive, media literacy, news about women worldwide, gender roles, women throughout history and current badasses, feminist literature, and other general women's issues. And of course, what you can do to fight the good fight.
