Pro-Woman Resources!
Welcome! These are just a few resources that the Women’s Initiative recommends for pro-woman news, information, and entertainment. We’ll be adding to it all year–websites as well as people’s favorite pro-woman books, magazines, movies, TV shows, music, artists, authors, you name it! Feel free to leave suggestions on our Facebook page (Saint Rose Women’s Initiative) or blog (!

Love, Joy, Feminism, One Girl’s Journey from Patriarchy to Freedom:

  • “I was raised a daughter of Christian patriarchy, fundamentalism, homeschooling, the religious right, and all the rest. Today I am a loving wife, devoted mother, hard working graduate student, passionate feminist, and dedicated humanist. I don’t pretend know everything, but I like to think I have an interesting perspective on life!”
