"Though we have the courage to raise our daughters more like our sons, we've rarely had the courage to raise our sons more like our daughters." - Gloria Steinem

In addition to the quote by the great social activist and writer, I've written my own ruminations on the topic, based around personal experiences.

This is the perfect postcard to send to your like-minded (or maybe not so like-minded) friends to start or continue a discussion.

Many of us are writing to our representatives and senators to protest the actions of the new United States government; if you wish to use this for that purpose, select "Addressed to Rep" in the Addressing Services section above. Once I have your address, I myself will put in the effort of finding out the address of your local congressperson and write it in. All you'll have to do once it arrives is fill in your own message, or slap appropriate postage on the card and send it in, letting Gloria Steinem speak for you.

This card is made by using a quill on 9.5"x6.5" neutral upcycled cardstock. If you would like it on a different kind of paper, please let me know and we'll work something out.

You can also choose your font style for the quote. Select DEFAULT if you like the way it's written in the pictures, or check out Calligraphy Services for illustrations of what the other font styles look like.


Cancellations accepted until work has begun--that is, until I confirm receipt of your envelopes.

Shipping from United States

All calligraphy orders will be sent back via USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate, so shipping cost depends on the size of the order. As soon as I find out the size and amount of envelopes, I will inform you of the price.

Jewelry and other orders are also sent USPS Priority, unless otherwise requested.


No refunds on custom orders, I'm afraid. For everything else, it may be returned in the original packaging within two weeks of receipt.


Unless we have discussed my providing your envelopes, you are responsible for doing so. Please be advised that shimmery, coated envelopes do not do well with calligraphy ink, and that some types of paper will not cooperate with fountain pens or other ink-heavy pens. Also, please plan to need 15-20% additional envelopes to allow for human error or add-ons (for instance, at the last minute your college roommate wants to bring a date, or you can't get out of inviting a distant relation).
