About this deal
INTERSECTIONALITY! Vivian is given a firsthand lesson in the problematic aspects of "white feminism" and learns how to take the extra steps needed to ensure complete inclusion of all women (not just the white girls). Viv and the Moxie Girls face off against a powerful entrenched "boys will be boys" culture that turns a blind eye to girls at the high school being routinely degraded, grabbed, harassed, and bullied. As the novel progresses, more and more girls find their voices and summon the courage to take a stand.

As much as I love her, I know she wouldn’t get it. Meemaw and Grandpa see the world one way. You go to church on Sunday, you don’t wear white after Labor Day, and you always say “Merry Christmas,” not “Happy Holidays.” This is not a review – you can read my (sadly short – I wrote the post when new to reviewing!) thoughts on the book here. What I wanted to do was look at how the movie compared to the book.It turns out the Big Bad Evil Sexist Principal wasn't JUST a Big Bad Sexist- he was literally stealing money from GIRLS SPORTS to give it to FOOTBALL, which is a BOYS SPORT. As in, LITERALLY STEALING MONEY FROM THE GIRLS TO GIVE TO THE BOYS. Likely for the first time in her school life, Vivian finds herself as part of a social circle comprised of Moxie admirers. She also starts a relationship with Seth (Nico Hiraga), a proud ally and initially the only person to know the truth about Moxie. However, Vivian’s relationship with Claudia begins to suffer, as both of them start to feel that they increasingly have fewer things in common with each other. Moxie Ending: Is Vivian Revealed as the Creator and Publisher of Moxie? Lucy takes in a sharp breath. “Wait, what did you just say?” she asks, turning in her seat, her dark eyes wide with surprise.

And if you upgrade to the VIP MicroBook Mega, you get two 1-2-1 calls with me. You can use your first one right away and I’ll help you figure out which idea you want to start with. I have an idea for my MicroBook, but haven’t started it yet. Is the course right for me? When I was 6 years old, I got the slipper* for daydreaming in class when I should have been writing. That was the start of my rebellion against “what writers do” and also against being bored.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Onboarding week starts today (but it’s not too late to join!) and the first live call is on Tuesday March 7. Here’s the schedule for MicroBook Magic Season 3: Moxie is unashamedly feminist, but also takes a look at high school culture in small towns with a football obsession, and at how some men behave. I enjoyed it and remember coming out of it feeling empowered and like I need to do more. I am always striving to be a better feminist and this really brought out that side of me. Well,” Lucy starts, and you can tell she’s excited to get going, even sitting up a little straighter in her chair, “if you think about the reference the speaker makes in line 8, what I’m wondering is if the light doesn’t indicate, a, um, what would you call it … like a shift in the speaker’s understanding of…”

The world is an evil, sexist cesspit that won't let you dress the way you want because you're a girl. I've put off weeding that veg bed for a bunch of reasons, none of them good. And so I've wasted more time worrying about the onions than it took me to just do the bloody weeding. Read more
But wait—where did all this come from, exactly?
Just a wild guess,” says Claudia with a roll of her eyes. She’s tinier than me, the top of her head only reaching my shoulder, and I have to lean in to hear her. At 5'10? and a junior in high school, I’m afraid I might still be growing, but Claudia’s been the size of a coffee-table tchotchke since the sixth grade. It’s like I’m living in a feminist fantasy,” Lucy says. “But it can’t be a complete fantasy, because Roxane Gay isn’t here.”
