At first I thought it was a little weird that the only lactose intolerant speaker was being sent to University of Wisconsin Eau Claire, which is firmly situated in the land famous for its cheese. Several friends told me that I “simply have to try the cheese curds,” which painted a picture in my head that I would be surrounded by only cheese all the time, which is pretty much my worst nightmare. Luckily, while Wisconsin seems to be famous for its cheese, I was at no time fully surrounded.
Getting to the important stuff, the ladies at UWisconsin Eau Claire were phenomenal and we had a great Girls Fight Back! program. The crowd had a great energy and everyone was so eager to become their best protectors . . . Basically, it was awesome! I always love a program where I get feedback saying we need to bring our program to Oprah and Colbert! To this awesome anonymous feedback giver, I thank you! Oprah and Colbert, please put yourselves on notice that we would love to grace your stages. Big thanks to the events committee for bringing Girls Fight Back to their awesome university! You were a stellar crowd.
