Happy Birthday Jos!!

jos as taylor swift for halloween last yearYeah!! Today is Jos’ birthday!! I join the entire Feministing crew in wishing her an incredibly joyful and fulfilling day.

Jos, I knew you were a talented writer before I ever met you, but I had no idea what a wonderful friend, devoted activist, sick dancer, and overall win of a human being you are. I’m so glad I’ve gotten the chance to get to know you a bit better over the past year, and I’m honored to write alongside you on the site.

In honor of Jos’ birthday check out of a few of my favorite posts from her archive!

Rallying for sanity or fear or something.

And of course, she is responsible for the Feministing Mad Men Mondays/Midweek Fix!

Happy Birthday Jos! I know you’ll rock it out :-)
