About Megan Seely

Megan is a third-wave feminist who teaches at Sierra College in Northern California.  While attending college, Megan worked at the Chico and Sacramento Women's Health Specialists (a Feminist Women's Health Center) doing educational outreach and public relations for the health center.  She has been a board member ever since. 

Megan earned her Master of Arts degree at California State University, Sacramento in 1998.  Her Thesis is entitled "The Taboo of Women's Bodies, Dispelling the Myths of Menstruation".  Her thesis was that American mass media portrays menstruation, through product advertisements, in a negative way; a woman who internalize this portrayal will have a negative attitude toward her own menstrual cycle.

Megan was the youngest ever elected president of California National Organization for Women (CA-NOW), serving two terms from 2001 to 2005.  She wrote a primer and call to action for the next generation of feminist activists, "Fight Like a Girl, How to be a Fearless Feminist".

Megan teaches a Sociology of Women's Health, and Feminism and Social Action. She coordinates and hosts an event every Spring called "Love Your Body Week" with speakers, projects, and workshops. She also presents a workshop/presentation "Politics of our Blood", which discusses current attitudes, politics, producs, advertising, etc.

Megan has a web site, www.fightlikeagirl.org and she welcomes input and queries on the "Ask Megan" contact form.
