12.19.11 That Take Ovaries

Celebrating Gutsy Women Around the World – because Courage is Contagious.

Rivka Solomon

A play, best-selling book & an open mike movement. Playwright Rivka Solomon joins Botha to discuss the TTO movement that rabble-rouses from the East Coast of the U.S., with an impact heard around the globe. Along with Bobbi Ausubel, Solomon co-wrote the play, THAT TAKES OVARIES: BOLD WOMEN, BRAZEN ACTS, an exciting collection of real-life stories from women and girls about the gutsy, outrageous, courageous things they have done. Solomon’s play is jam-packed with multicultural, fun, sassy, touching true tales of estrogen-powered deeds that range from playful to political, including women fighting for their human rights. Her play has also been produced by schools and community theaters around the U.S. and globe, from Omaha, Nebraska, from Thailand to Liverpool, England.

Author: H. Sandra Chevalier-Batik

I started the Inconvenient Woman Blog in 2007, and am the product of a long line of inconvenient women. The matriarchal line is French-Canadian, Roman Catholic, with a very feisty Irish great-grandmother thrown in for sheer bloody mindedness. I am a research analyst and author who has made her living studying technical data, and developing articles, training materials, books and web content. Tracking through statistical data, and oblique cross-references to find the relevant connections that identifies a problem, or explains a path of action, is my passion. I love clearly delineating the magic questions of knowledge: Who, What, Why, When, Where and for How Much, Paid to Whom. My life lessons: listen carefully, question with boldness, and personally verify the answers. I look at America through the appreciative eyes of an immigrant, and an amateur historian; the popular and political culture is a ceaseless fascination. I have no impressive initials after my name. I’m merely an observer and a chronicler, an inconvenient woman who asks questions, and sometimes encourages others to look at things differently.
