Lately, when I need to unknot a tangle in my thinking, book or life, I’ve been reaching out to the wise women I know – and some I don’t know personally, too.
I call it my phone-a-feminist lifeline. And lo, I am using it.
I’m going to try to use it at least 100 times in 2016 (this is totally inspired by Desiree Adaway, who aimed to have 100 conversations in 2015 with people she didn’t previously know).
I want to be in community with wise women who are seeking justice. I want to help build community. I want to help.
And sometimes – most of the time – I need help, too.
So let’s make the phone-a-feminist a real lifeline, shall we?
If you’d like to be part of the phone-a-feminist project by making yourself available to other women for scheduled phone calls, then drop your calendar link in the list below.
(And if you want to call me, I’m available. See my deets in the list.)
Some notes on logistics:
I use Google Calendar, Timebridge and Skype.
First I set up a Google Calendar. Then I created my free Timebridge account and selected my Google Calendar to sync. I defined my work hours and that I’m only available to take calls during those hours. Then I copied the link for my ‘meet with me’ page in Timebridge. That’s the link I pasted in the list, below. Anyone who clicks on that link can block out 30 minutes with me for a phone-a-feminist call. We both get an email confirming our appointment and then we convene on Skype.
You don’t have to use the same method, of course, but I just wanted to share my process in case you’re wondering about logistics.
