Five days in the woods with four girls – Autumn Sawyer, Abby Cloney, Rothery Sullivan, and Jillian Hagerty, at the Jack Mountain Bush Craft School, with Ben Spencer! Hot days, mosquitoes like I've never seen, and water low enough to not do our canoe expedition. However, we swam in the river every day, made wooden spoons with burning embers and knives, and we hiked Mount Chase in 100% humidity! We cooked over fires that we started without matches, and we found ways to have tons of fun without our phones! Well, to be honest – there was one mission that included phone use but what happens at camp stays at camp!😎 ... See MoreSee Less

Haleigh Holmes and Vanessa Rafford from Ashland, performed at the Maine Pitch on Friday night in Warren. They talked with some 50 girls from Belfast, who are going into high school next year. It was POWERFUL to watch stories unfold and connections being formed! They covered topics of sexual harassment, grief, and the need for girls to help one another. Everyone agreed that girls are being "sold" some idea that beauty is perfection, and that there are many distractions to being healthy and happy! Much more worth our time and effort! Girls need to stand together ~ lots of ROUGH STUFF happening to girls in the world at large. *Thanks to the Maine Arts Commission for the grant that provided funds for two Mainely Girls performance groups to meet weekly this year, and to reach out to other girls from other places in Maine. ...
