Who I am~I am a progressive feminist activist in Wisconsin.
My life consists of challenge, struggle, fighting, and crusading. For the past two years I have been a political activist fighting Wisconsin state level government, our governor, Scott Walker, and the rampant corruption. I spent the entire 2011-2012 winter standing outside collecting signatures on recall petitions. I cried tears of joy at the news of the delivery of over one million recall signatures. I volunteered sixteen hour shifts validating signaures before their delivery.
I cried tears of sorrow at our defeat.
My work life also consists of challenge. I am a female pipefitter, refrigeration specialist. My day-to-day life consists of challenging stereotypes, that women can’t comprehend mechanical things. I specialize in cascade refrigeration, which can be pretty technical.
Yet, I will seek to find beauty in this blog.
But you will also get snippets of my feminism and activism. That’s just how I roll.
