Hello world!

And welcome to Teaspoons. We’re named after an idea from one of my favorite bloggers, the woman who created Shakesville, Melissa McEwan, who explains the concept a lot better than I ever could: 

“All I ever do is try to empty the sea with this teaspoon; all I can do is keep trying to empty the sea with this teaspoon.”

I’ll be writing about politics and feminism, and the confluence of the two and the influence they have on each other and the impact they have on everything. Not everything will be about both, but I’ll try for some balance of the two, and as a good start my next post will be about Jeannette Rankin, the woman who inspired my nom de plume.
