I want to commend you so much for what you are doing to support Women! I am an 84 year old woman who grew up in the age of women not being accepted in the work force. I finally had the courage to go back to the University of Pennsylvania To become an Architect and walked into the first day of physics class to be told by the Professor that I would never pass because women couldn’t do physics! I aced it and went on to become an architect and eventually the first woman President of the American Institute of Architects! So I am thrilled that you are lending support to women in such a meaningful way! If I can…

Dear Mika,

My daughter gave me a book by author Bonnie Garmus, Lessons in Chemistry, that I think is uniquely feminist and drives home every grievance in a well written way. It is her first novel. Check it out if you haven’t already. Michele
