In fourth grade, I did a massive project on Amelia Bloomer and she became one of my heroes. Today (via a note from their MySpace site which shows you how the world is changing), I discovered that Rickshaw Girl made ALA's 2008 Amelia Bloomer Project list.
This award is moderated by the Feminist Task Force of the American Library Association's Social Responsibilities Round Table (SSRT), and I'm wondering why it seems to have been overlooked in ALA's award announcements.
Oh, well. Amelia rocks! And I'm wearing a comfy pair of bloomers right now, my blogging outfit of choice.
