Support Elaine Day's Writing on Asperger's and Women

i wanted to draw your attention to the work of Elaine Day.  She is a woman and an Aspie.  And she wants to write a book about her experience as a woman growing up undiagnosed on the spectrum.  I think that women are underrepresented as writers in the autism world, and that the experiences of autistic women don't get the coverage they deserve.

Ms. Day is running a campaign on Kickstarter  to raise funds for her project.  She hopes to raise $1,000 within the next 17 days and has already raised $440 toward her goal.  If you can afford to make a contribution and want to support autistic women, I encourage you to do so. I think autistic women and autistic people in general need to support one another and so I am supporting Ms. Day.
