As many of you will know, I’ve always wanted to be published in the Athabasca Student Union newspaper. And how, it’s happened. Not that I know where Athabasca is.
I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the number of positive reviews of Getting Real: Challenging the sexualisation of girls. This review, titled ‘The Care and Grooming of an Object,’ was published in The Voice, the Athabasca Student Union newspaper. It’s written by Wanda Waterman St Louis.
Here’s her summary of why she likes the book:
Getting Real manifests seven of The Mindful Bard’s criteria for books well worth reading: 1) it confronts existing injustices; 2) it renews my enthusiasm for positive social action; 3) it gives me tools enabling me to respond with compassion and efficacy to the suffering around me; 4) it displays an engagement with and compassionate response to suffering; 5) it inspires an awareness of the sanctity of creation; 6) it is about attainment of the true self; 7) it poses and admirably responds to questions which have a direct bearing on my view of existence.
Love your work, Wanda of Athabasca.
