Uh,Ms.Coravos doesn't seem to relaise that bananas didn't exist in the Americas until it was brought there from Asia.When I first read her banana statement I still though she was an American rightwing male.All I could think was that indeed this character must be smoking bananas.
Meet Katrina from Liberty Chocolates!

Liberty Chocolate began just two years ago in the home kitchen of owner Katrina Coravos (pictured at right), who wanted to make a wholesome, delicious chocolate bar using local honey as a sweetener instead of refined sugars. The result was pure decadence and uniqueness!
Now situated in a commercial kitchen space, Liberty Chocolate sells to hundreds of locations around the country. All of the chocolate is still made and wrapped by hand using only the finest quality ingredients. The brand has expanded to 12 flavors: Dark, Almond Coconut, Maple, Acai Blueberry, Cherry Pomegranate, Hot Pepper, Passionfruit Lemon, Peppermint, Salt, Strawberry, Vanilla Rose, and Coffee.
The name Liberty Chocolate comes from the founder’s intention to one day create a women’s self-sufficient retreat center. The company is committed to sustainable agriculture, traditional practices, and hand crafting from farm to finish. Made with organically grown Peruvian cacao beans that are harvested, aged, and laid on banana leaves to dry in the sun on small farms in Peru, the chocolate is then hand blended, mixed, and packaged right here in Calais, Vermont. It's another story of success from a Vermont Mom!

This powerful statement, made by Marjory Meijia is revolutionary in its depth and implications.
Under all perceived differences between us as women — our blood flows as one.This profound realization filled my eyes with tears at the first Jewish & Palestinians women circle I held in 1999 in Israel (my country of origin). Having held many women’s circles before, and having been touched time and again by the power of sharing our first blood stories, I was unprepared for the depth of emotions that engulfed us all: Muslim, Christian, and Jewish women, divided by years of political bias, cultural stereotypes, and accumulated fear of each other’s nations, we found a common ground that effortlessly bridged any perceived abyss between us!
Raised in small villages or in large urban neighborhoods, by deeply religious or defiantly atheist parents, in close-knit traditional communities or in loosely bound modern ones, our first blood stories differed in details, yet shared profoundly common flavors: those of feeling alone and scared, unprepared, ashamed, fearful, or just plain ho hum, a similar cord ran through our stories — a thread of invisibility, of a Coming of Age lacking in welcome, honor, or celebration.
How did the Red Tent movement begin?
By Isadora Gabrielle Leidenfrost, PhD
To begin this analysis of Red Tents, it is important to define what the Red Tent is. First and foremost, The Red Tent (1997) is a novel by Anita Diamant that retells the biblical rape story of Dinah. “The Rape of Dinah” (Genesis, chapter 34) was recounted not by Dinah, but by her brothers. Diamant provided a fictional feminist retelling of the tale, giving Dinah her own voice. She also gave the women a menstrual hut, a form of women’s community. The book is presented through Dinah’s eyes and those of the women around her. The Red Tent is rooted in its feminist retelling of this ancient biblical story, in which the idea of a menstrual hut has struck a cord with modern women.
The Red TentThe Red Tent novel originally did not have a great impact on women’s lives. This began to change when the author herself initiated a word-of-mouth campaign by giving copies away to Rabbis, female Christian leaders, and independent booksellers. This approach proved successful, and by 2002 The Red Tent had become a New York Times bestseller and a publishing phenomenon. The book has since been published in twenty-five countries and translated into twenty languages.
What is a Red Tent?
The “Red Tent” is many things to many people. It is a womb-like red fabric space, it is a place where women gather, it is an icon, and it is a state of mind—all concepts inspired by Diamant’s book. Some women create red fabric spaces specifically to honor their menstruation. Others create spaces where they can take care of themselves, promote women’s conversations, and/or hold workshops and other events for women.
