a book and a movie

I haven’t been writing. I went to the beach and enjoyed two days of radio silence. I’ve been reading “Half the Sky,” and you probably should, too. Yes, my friends and I were the nerdy kids on the beach reading nonfiction.

Last night I saw a screening of “MissRepresentation,” which I also highly recommend. Here’s the trailer:

Not too much of the data and statistics in the documentary were surprising to me, but the film definitely opened the eyes of my friends who didn’t spend a good portion of the summer trying to figure out a way to present those issues to young girls. The teenage girls and the women in the film were inspiring, and I really enjoyed hearing what they had to say.
