I met Melanie in Zuccotti Park day 49 of the Occupy Wall Street movement. She spoke to a group gathered with the amazing Eve Ensler to hear women's stories of why they had come to Occupy Wall Street. Melanie shared her excitement about the new women's safe space tent she had gone to check out and donate supplies to. It was the first day of the tent, a welcomed protected space as it was a cold and windy night.
What inspires Melanie Butler? Her female mentors @CodePink.org a women's peace organization and the activist community in NYC.
To watch and hear her speak these words "I'm just so full of hope." Well all I can say is Inspirational!
