What do you think of when you read that word?

We all have the stereotype in our minds, don't we?

Well recently I was contacted for a survey that I would love for you to participate in. It is for purely selfish reasons - I want to see the results.

Here is part of the message I got, with the link. If it something you have time to do, complete the survey. I don't want to taint your answers so I won't comment more on this subject for a few days.

Here is the info:
"Hi, my name is Mindy, merchull@umw.edu, and I am a teacher and researcher at the University of Mary Washington, in Fredericksburg, Virginia. I am researching attitudes about mothering with my colleague Miriam Liss.

We are collecting data from women over the age of 18. We are looking for feminists, non-feminists, mothers, and non-mothers. "

To participate in the study follow this link:


"Feel free to share this information and link with your friends! You can post it in other online venues you feel might be appropriate as well.

Thanks for your help.

-Mindy (and Miriam) "

Oh.. and here is a quick Halloween pic that has nothing to do with feminism (or does it since I had to persuade my husband to wear a costume and I am dressed up like a 12 year old girl and my son kind of has long shaggy hair. :)
