Note to Amy Poehler

Although I am the brand of crank that writes letters to the editor, I do not write letters to celebrities. But I am hoping, Amy Poehler, that you see this note in which I express my undying admiration for you and your pregnant belly.

The Working and Parenting Conundrum

If you think that feminism is almost obsolete, and the good fight has already been fought and won, just talk to a mother of school-aged children.
