A dollmaker and watercolor artist from Boise, Idaho, I live with chronic Fibromyalgia and inflammatory arthritis. I’m also a stay at home, homeschooling mom who is raising my son to be a feminist. She lives with her husband, son, and their two cats. Instagram: @henandchick
I am so grateful that this opportunity to participate exists! So often as disabled and chronically ill people, we already feel powerless. Being unable to participate in my city’s Women’s March made me feel even more powerless, as I am unable to walk for long distances or stand for long due to fatigue and pain from Fibromyalgia and Arthritis. Now I feel like my voice is being heard, and I can join with all of the others in working to ensure the new administration doesn’t undo all of the difficult work that has been done for the progress of women, people of color, those with disabilities, and others who live with oppression.
