I'm anxious to read more about this phenomenon in relation to femininsm. I've yet to be exposed to many women who have quit their jobs in order to raise animals. But I have found that more women AND men are attempting to live simpler lives by growing their own food, baking their own bread. While growing your own veggies or caring for a few hens doesn't solve many of the environmental issues we face, these actions reflect a changing national consciousness. Your comments on the urban farms in Detroit were of particular interest, and I hope to read more positive accounts of what is happening in that city.

  • Isak is a space to celebrate tales and truth in the curious, joyful way embodied by the writer for which it is named. The name "Isak," after all, means "laughter," as she was fond of pointing out.

    By tales, I mean fiction (especially short fiction), as well as other literary and artistic narratives. By truth, I mean the world in which we live. I especially have my eye on creative social justice.
