Badass Ladies You Should Know: Kaye M.

Kate Hart
A year ago this month, in the wake of a horrific misogyny-fueled shooting spree in California, many women on the internet found solace in #yesallwomen -- a hashtag in which we shared examples of the sexism, violence, and fear that affect our daily lives. The genius behind this simple phrase was Kaye M., a dear internet-friend who was already making waves with her involvement in #WeNeedDiverseBooks and the creation of #NotYourStockMuslim.

Only in her early 20s, Kaye is an inspiration as she finishes her English degree, reviews books, interns with a literary agency, and continues to raise hell (in a thoughtful way). While the internet has not always been kind to her, she continues to be kind to it, and I'm honored to profile her here.

Badass Ladies You Should Know: Kirsten Hubbard

Kate Hart

Today I have the joy of profiling one of my very best friends: author, artist, burner, and intrepid explorer Kirsten Hubbard. Kirsten has traveled (almost) every continent, illustrated her own novel, co-founded YA Highway, organized repeated Burning Man camps, and most recently, moved to the wilds of Los Angeles as she dealt with the challenges of coming out as queer. I love her and I think you should too.
