why am i doing this?
For years, I've written from a personal perspective. My feelings. My thoughts. My emotions. The only problem was, the women in my life, whom I credit for much of my success as an author, experience a very different reality. The way they're approached by men, how they're treated on the job, what expectations are placed upon them as mothers, wives, and providers; I could never fully understand. But I knew Shopderrickjaxn could be an opportunity to give them a voice. Instead of being another quote that would soon be forgotten or book that only some will read, I use items like tees, wine glasses, and more as the megaphone to the hearts and minds of women everywhere because if we're going to move forward as a culture, we MUST acknowledge them and act accordingly. While I can't control how society acts, I can remove ignorance as the excuse and that's exactly WHY Shopderrickjaxn is here to stay." -Derrick Jaxn
