Confronting classism:

Two years ago, I wrote a manifesto on who I wanted to meet: intelligent, interesting women who didn’t orbit around men. I live in Arizona, which is a bit Stepfordian in its bent. Surely there were others out there who were feeling me.

This manifesto crystalized into my Meetup, and today we have almost 500 members. I’ve been very please with the diversity of my group in every way — it’s full of women from all over the world, of all regions, religions, backgrounds and age groups. We’re now a powerful network of women who want to change our society and the world, and we’re starting to mobilize in a real way.

But today’s meeting left me a little scared and sad.
