Five Questions with Shannon
Favorite book: The Color Purple, Alice Walker
Woman (dead or alive) to have dinner with: Fran Meneses
Favorite feminist anthem: So many! But I’ve gotta go with No Scrubs – TLC, because Left Eye’s rap is still so good.
Favorite place to go on a feminist rant: Anyplace where I least expect to be confronted by an opportune moment.
Perfect day (in one sentence): A full tank of fuel, country roads, a good playlist, and the anticipation of discovering landscapes, eateries, and thrift stores as yet unknown to me.
