Who wants a free audiobook? Tracy’s giveaway

Last week Sam gave away three copies of our new audiobook version of Fit at Mid-Life: A Feminist Fitness Journey. We love that there is an audio version of the book now. Our narrator, Adrienne Cornette, did a fantastic job reading it. And our agent, Lisa Adams, put in a lot of time reviewing the drafts and imposing her exacting standards to make sure it’s the best it can be.

This week it’s my turn for a giveaway! I too have some codes. And I’m eager to share them. And you hardly have to do anything (but not nothing). We’d like a bit of help promoting the audiobook. There are two ways you can do that and be eligible for the audiobook contest:

  1. Share this post on Twitter and tag us @FitFeminists so we know you did.
  2. Share this post from our Facebook page (where it will appear today) and if you share it we’ll be able to see that you did as long as your settings on that share are public.

I’ll close the contest at noon Eastern Time (Daylight Savings!) on Sunday and announce the winners.

Thanks and good luck!

Win our book!

Greg at KineSophy interviewed us for his blog and he’s having a book giveaway.

Here’s an excerpt from the interview:

Greg: You co-write a blog called “Fit Is a Feminist Issue.” What does feminism mean to you?

Sam: Feminism for me is a commitment to women’s equality with a focus on the values of inclusion and diversity. It’s also about paying attention to intersectional injustice. My feminism is trans-inclusive, body positive, anti-racist, and anti-ableist. That’s not to say I always get things right. I don’t. I make mistakes like everyone else. I try to listen and to apologize when I get things wrong.

Tracy: Like Sam, I think of feminism as a social movement for equality that cares about inclusion and diversity. Feminist analysis recognizes unjust structures of power and social arrangements that privilege some and disadvantage others in systemic ways on the basis of membership in social groups. It’s not just about gender. A true feminist approach has to recognize intersecting social locations such as race, disability, sexuality, economic status, class, and others that generate unique forms of and experiences of oppression.

Go read the rest here.
