Juliet found herself in the eye of the gender equality storm in the spring of 2014, when her daughter's middle school banned leggings and yoga pant's because they were, "too distracting to boys."  She is a kidlit writer, gender studies instructor and a mother of three who married her high school boyfriend.  She earned her MSW from the University of Illinois, and has worked and published content about adoption, apology and forgiveness and youth grief and loss.  In 2011, she founded the nonprofit organization Evanston COPE, which serves families in Evanston.
