Badly Behaved for Women’s History Month 2014

Anna Gallagher, Publicity Assistant at Seal Press, invited Seal authors to send in a short video talking about our favorite feminist quote.

Anna will compile these into one video in honor of Women’s History Month, and we’ll share it widely as soon as it’s ready.

I knew right away which quote I’d choose, and I had a ton of fun making my video!
Here’s something you may not know about me: I don’t wait very well. In fact, my motto used to be, “The only problem with instant gratification is that it takes too long.” Clearly I couldn’t wait to share my video with you. Anna said I could go for it — so here it is:

Do you have a favorite quote for Women’s History Month? If so, I hope you’ll add it in a comment here.

3/18/14 update: Here’s the finished video from Seal with the favorite quotes of many Seal authors. I love the Anais Nin quote!

    "You cannot hope to build a better world without improving the individuals. To that end each of us must work for his own improvement, and at the same time share a general responsibility for all humanity, our particular duty being to aid those to whom we think we can be most useful."

    Pierre Curie (1923), as translated by Charlotte Kellogg and Vernon Lyman Kellogg, p. 168

    A lot more interesting indeed. I've always enjoyed spending time with women–picnics and the like–who like being naked outdoors from time to time; a favorite way to misbehave. Also playing dress up at Halloween and New Years where we all hit the streets in Santa Cruz, beat drums and wear stilts and dance in the streets.
