Featured on HelloFlo: Alexandra Dickinson Empowers Women to Go After What They Want

I am a huge fan of HelloFlo. I first fell in love with their hilarious videos and continue to strongly embrace their mission to spread shame-free information about women's bodies and health. It was Naama Bloom, HelloFlo's wise and wonderful founder, who gave me some of the best advice of my life: "Don't take no for an answer. Think of it as 'no for now.'" So it's my absolute honor to be featured in the Femspiration category of their blog!

Here's an excerpt:

What inspired you to get started with Ask For It?
When I was a junior in high school, someone gave me a copy of an influential psychology book called Reviving Ophelia: Saving the Selves of Adolescent Girls by Mary Pipher. That was one of the first times I realized the differences between women and men mattered deeply to me. It was a long time before I allowed myself to acknowledge that there are formal ways to turn that feeling into action, much less a career.
