Rock 'n' Roll Camp for Girls just completed our 14th year of summer camps! Inspiring high action packed amazingness! However, there have also been some *sun's out bummed out* moments for me & comrades near & dear. Street Harassment in particular has been on my mind.

Smashing Patriarchy is Self Care! We're Worth It!
