With the Women's World Cup now underway in Australia and New Zealand, we're celebrating Mighty Girls of soccer, including Carson Pickett who made history last year as the first soccer player with a limb difference to play for the US Women's National Team! The 29-year-old defender, who was born without the lower half of her left arm, currently plays for Racing Louisville; she made her debut with the USWNT in a match against Colombia last summer.

Carson, pictured here with a young fan, says that she hopes that her example will raise awareness and acceptance of people with limb differences. "While I know that I am confident and comfortable with showing my arm, I know there are so many people in the world who aren't. The feeling of being different and the anxiety of not fitting in is something that I have been through. Wearing sweatshirts in the dead heat of summer to hide my are," she wrote on social media. "I hope to encourage anyone who struggles with their limb difference to not be ashamed of who they are."

For soccer-loving Mighty Girls, we've featured books, clothing, toys, and gear about girls and women's love of the game in our blog post "The Beautiful Game" at https://www.amightygirl.com/blog?p=15478

For an excellent middle grade novel about a girl who thrives despite her "lack of armage," we highly recommend "Insignificant Events in the Life of a Cactus" for ages 9 to 13 (https://www.amightygirl.com/insignificant-events-in-the-life-of-a-cactus) and its sequel, "Momentous Events in the Life of a Cactus" (https://www.amightygirl.com/momentous-events-in-the-life-of-a-cactus)

This beloved novel has also been adapted into a new chapter book series starring Aven, an armless Mighty Girl who loves solving mysteries, which begins with "Aven Green, Sleuthing Machine" for ages 6 to 9 at https://www.amightygirl.com/aven-green-sleuthing-machine

For an inspiring memoir by Jordan Reeves, a Mighty Girl growing up with a limb difference, we recommend "Born Just Right" for ages 8 to 11 at https://www.amightygirl.com/born-just-right

There are also several fantastic books about Mighty Girls who pursue their dreams after leg amputations: "Rescue and Jessica" for ages 5 to 9 (https://www.amightygirl.com/rescue-and-jessica), “The Running Dream” for ages 12 and up (https://www.amightygirl.com/the-running-dream), and “A Time To Dance” for ages 13 and up (https://www.amightygirl.com/a-time-to-dance)

For more books that encourage understanding and acceptance of people with disabilities of all varieties, visit our blog post "Many Ways To Be Mighty: 25 Books Starring Mighty Girls with Disabilities" at https://www.amightygirl.com/blog?p=12992

I’M A BIG FAN OF WOMEN

I’m a big fan of women with raucous laughs,
women who overshare awkward truths,
when the conversation stalls.

I’m a lover of singing loudly in the car whenever possible
and I love pulling alongside a fellow diva doing the same.

I’m a big fan of women who love women,
who spot lipstick on teeth and help each other out,
when Mother Nature calls.

I’m a huge believer in comparison being the thief of joy,
that dimming someone else’s light,
won’t ever make yours shine more brightly.

I just can’t get enough of those women,
who are unashamedly themselves,
in technicolour glory.

I’m a lover of laughter and those moments,
when the tears of joy start to flow, give me life.

I think the best therapy is quality time with a friend,
who listens without judgement.

I’m a big fan of women who break, who share,
who rebuild each other and cheer along the way.

I’m grateful for this world half-full of fabulous females,
I see you all,
each and every one.

👋 After a hectic end to 2022 with the launch of our 3rd book, the DRP team has been quietly hibernating this winter. However, we are making plans for local events in spring and doing more online outreach this year. Please follow our page for updates!

Did you get a copy of "Every Breath Alight"? If so, we'd love to hear what you think of "Every Breath Alight." If you haven't gotten your copy, get the paperback or e-book at https://tinyurl.com/56k4kyvk

If you haven't finished it, that's ok. Enjoy one story at time. And to help you decide what to read based on your mood, here's a "Story Map." Since our stories span genres and themes, they're grouped together - although some are hard to pin down to one genre.

The new year is a good time to pause and take time for introspection and reflection - see what works for you, what doesn't and what you want to walk towards now that the path is cleared.

The project aims to bring the perspectives of poets and artists to the public in small and meaningful ways this winter through an uplifting poem, an inspiring piece of public art, or a new piece of clothing.

A new revolution has ignited.

In this third anthology from Dandelion Revolution Press, a breathtaking collection of fourteen stories tells tales of women who find their voices—and aren’t afraid to use them.

Step into different worlds where characters strive to be heard. A mermaid reclaims her voice and shares her final story. A young witch-hunter challenges the demons of her past and present. A forgotten wife finds freedom in the plunge. Modern women balance demands of their society as they grapple with their dreams, while others struggle in futuristic worlds that constrain and control their voices and bodies.

Join these women as they reckon with who they once were—and burn to find who they were meant to be.

Story 13: The Roommate by Natalya Bucuy
---
Natalya Bucuy is a journalist and a writer who believes that if a story doesn’t come to you, you just have to go find it. That’s pretty much why she usually ends up in some kind of shenanigans. But, in the end, there is a story to take home and share with the world, so it’s all good. Natalya’s favorite way to find adventures is to travel—near or far, that doesn’t matter—especially with her two awesome teenage sons. She lives in a historic house in Doylestown, PA, where inspiration (and possibly some ghosts) live in the walls and help her write.
