      Eva Colen is an inspiration. And I love her.

      Creator Eva Colen on April 26, 2012

      OK friends, I did it - so should you. I'm skipping the unnecessary purchase of a new bikini & sandals in order to raise my pledge to $250, since an anonymous donor will match that pledge and make it an even $500. THIS IS SUPER IMPORTANT, sister-bros. Laura Goode & Meera Menon are badass feminists and even more badass friends who have undertaken a very important project that portrays diverse ladyfriends the way we see ourselves. In an era where shows like "Girls" are getting massive press and attention because they show 20something women in all their awkward post-adolescent glory, it's even more important that we increase visibility not only of real women (not just archetypes) but also of DIVERSE women. Farah Goes Bang offers something that shows like "Girls" do not - diversity. DO IT, FRIENDS.
