Inconvenient Women Don’t Get Angry

— They Get Active!™

Welcome to the Inconvenient Woman Activist, your opportunity to participate in proactive, positive, collective action, creativity and partnership.

Activists take intentional action to bring about social or political change. We write letters to newspapers, politicians or maintain Blog sites to bring attention to issues that matter to us. Activists are involved in everything from supporting like-minded political candidates, to coordinating grass roots organizations to persuade people to change their behavior directly, rather than persuade governments to change laws.

Transformational activism is the idea that people need to transform on the inside as well on the outside in order to tap into the power of mass collaboration and collective creativity in a way that transforms the people involved into more loving, peaceful, compassionate states and create meaningful change in the world.

Take action and change your world, and the world of your daughters and grand daughters. Inconvenient Woman encourages you to submit your articles, photos, projects or resources, via email to

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.
