Want to know about an outrageous woman who broke all the rules with humor and an unshakeable sense of self? Take a break with Pancho Barnes, a fearless woman who:

  • escaped kidnappers by riding a horse across Mexico dressed as a man—
  • repeatedly said ‘No!” to authority, standing up for herself and others—
  • beat Amelia Earhart’s speed record— and much more.

My favorite quote from this interview:

“If you want to ask for a raise, Pancho Barnes is your spirit animal.”

Check out this week’s video with writer/filmmaker April Wolfe talking about a bold adventuress who’ll capture your imagination and win your heart!

As you know, we’re in the middle of our crowdfunding campaign and though we’re doing well, we’ve hit a bit of a plateau. If you’ve been meaning to give but haven’t gotten around to it—we’d be most grateful if you did.

And why not make your donation in the name of a woman who’s made a difference in your life? We’ll shout out your appreciation for her on social media.  You’ll feel great, we’ll feel great, love all around.
