This is what a feminist professor looks like
Thank you very much, Duchess Harris, for sharing your perspective. [OnYourMind, MWP, August 2013] Blessing to you!
Julie Kilpatrick, Stillwater

I am both saddened by the cold reality of Ms. Harris' message and inspired by her courage and candor. From my experience as a white woman in a male-dominated work environment, I understand her message from firsthand experience. I, too, believe I don't have the privilege of "dressing down" like my male colleagues if I'm to be taken seriously as a strong leader. I share Ms. Harris' dream of "I look forward to a time when Black women will have the freedom to wear what they want to wear, speak how they want to speak and still be taken seriously" and will add I look forward to this time for all women as well. Thank you for sharing this courageous and sobering message.
Deb Byers, Somerset, Wis.

Thank you for this article - powerful truth that needs to heard.

Fan mail
I love the way you've taken the usual women's magazine take on this topic and given it your own very meaningful and insightful Women's Press perspective [MWP, August 2013, What She Wore]. I passed the magazine along to my daughter - she loves it, too! I'm amazed and in awe of how you pull this off month after month. Thank you!

'It's still me'
When I needed a wig when starting chemo, I made a girls' day of it and brought six of my girlfriends with me to the wig shop, "It's Still Me." Jan [Strassburg] was wonderful. [Profile, MWP, August 2013] We laughed, we cried and she helped me find things that made me feel a little bit better about the journey I was on.
Monica Theis, Robbinsdale
