Dear Ms. Barr. . .

Dear Ms. Barr,

I hope you are doing well today and that your nut farm is prosperous. I am the current president of The University of Iowa’s Feminist Majority Leadership Alliance (FMLA). We are in the process of planning the first (as far as we know) Midwest Feminist Conference. It is just a short 2 months away, on November 4th-6th, 2011. It will be held in Iowa City, on the University’s campus. Our goal is to find the middle ground between academia and activism and hopefully motivate all the young leaders that will attend the conference to go to back to their own communities and spread their new knowledge and network of young progressive folks.

You might be wondering why I am telling you all of this, probably not seeing as how you are a very famous and talented woman. I am asking you to come to Iowa City and talk about your experiences as a woman who has been fought against, but who has still prevailed (so far; keep it up!). We would love to host you in the chilly Iowa November, and treat you to the joys of college town life! You could also briefly discuss your presidential candidacy, as I am sure, people are interested in where you stand, and supporting you.

Please seriously consider coming to our conference and changing the lives of the many young, Midwestern leaders that will some day (soon) change the world. 

I will be trying to contact you through all mediums. Be prepared, for I don’t really go to class so I have some extra time. I just need to figure out the time difference between Iowa and Hawaii.

Thank you for your time and I look forward to. . . potentially stalking and hopefully hearing from you.

In solidarity,

Emily J. Sullivan
