Dana Marie Krook

Writer, editor and cupcake enthusiast (danakrook.com)

Senior Coordinator of Program Development by day, freelance writer/editor/researcher by night, Dana Marie Krook is a firm believer in "having it all"--which, of course, means chasing your dreams, your bucket list and your cupcake craving as far as necessary. She loves word games, yoga, running and super-hero movies, but would trade it all for the chance to see her first YA novel on the shelves of a bookstore.

Would You Still Be Anti-Feminist If You Knew What Feminism

Would You Still Be Anti-Feminist If You Knew What Feminism Was?

It's everyone's right to have an opinion. But here is what bothers me: they've got the wrong definition. They are basing their judgment of me, my beliefs and on feminism as a whole, on inaccurate information. What I am calling for is a re-education of women, and men, across North America. If you take a look at feminism's goal (one more time: equality!) and <em>still </em>want to tote a sign that says, "I'm an anti-feminist," I suppose that is your prerogative.
