Winners of the Hey, Shorty! drawing + help fund Hey, Shorty! book tour

I’m trying to be more interactive-y so I filmed the drawing of the names of the people* who won copies of the new book Hey, Shorty! A guide to Combating Sexual Harassment and Violence in Schools and on the Streets and a copy of the Hey…Shorty! documentary, both from Girls for Gender Equity.

(If you watch the drawing, you’ll notice something I didn’t while filming… one of my dogs is licking himself on the couch behind me. Whoops, sorry about that folks! But I can’t redo a drawing, so you’re getting real, unedited life. You can also spot my second dog on the couch on the other side of me. At one point I smile at her.)

I hope everyone who didn’t win will check out the Hey, Shorty! book. You can read one of its latest book reviews on the Ms. blog today.

Also, one of the authors of the book, Mandy Van Deven, needs your help as she works to fund a national book tour. Please consider donating to the book tour so that more people around the country can learn about the important issues the book covers. Mandy and I will co-speak at any of the events that are in my area, so if you’re on the East Coast, you may get to hear from authors of two of the only books that address street harassment! Learn more and donate.

*Jeff Stutsman and Sara Cannon won copies of the book, Dienna Howard won a copy of the documentary
