The Quest Beyond the Pink Collar
We would like to say thank you to Jolanta Walukiewicz, who's idea it was to have a place where girls can learn about themselves and the world around them. She was a great inspiration and mentor. Also supporting this page is Lloyd Nebres, who taught us all about HTML and the secrets of Apple Macintosh computers. Thanks to both of them for their time, energy, and dedication to us. Thank you also to all of the girls who contributed to this page in their ideas, comments, and writings. This page is for you, we hope you enjoy it!
