Hello. I'm Heather. I'm 21, and a senior at UC Santa Cruz. My majors
are literature and history, I'm obsessed with the 18th century Atlantic
world, and I love reading/writing with a feminist/fem theory slant.
Current favorites include Barbara Kingsolver, Jane Austen, Audre Lorde,
Adrienne Rich, Judith Butler, Gilbert and Gubar, and Gayatri (sp?)
I also just finished Liberty's Daughters
by Mary Beth Norton, one of my favorite historians. She focuses on
women's experience during the American Revolution and afterward.
So, I guess that's it for now. This is a cool community. I'm not a
women's studies major so I never felt right in the other
feminist-themed communities, but I am an avid reader and writer. Here's
a poem I wrote with multiple female literary references you might
