04-07-17 – It is extremely difficult to come away reviewing Stillman’s body of work and not be impressed. She has covered my different areas and types of societal dispossession, and in the beginning of her career, there seems to be a lot of evidence that she directed and cultivated these stories, as opposed to them being assigned. Her upbringing and early life seems to indicate a grounding in social-justice and activist work, and I would consider all of her work good, valuable, honest social justice journalism. She is a person one should strive to be, in my humble opinion. As of now, she is still young and doesn’t seem to have been corrupted or discouraged from fighting.
Stillman has published one book:
2000 – Soul-Searching: A Girl’s Guide to Finding Herself
