Selma Miriam remains an ardent feminist who started Bloodroot restaurant and bookstore to be a place for women and for the purpose of welcoming a diversity of people, who it was hoped, would be comfortable in that space.  Bloodroot has been the center of her life for now 39 years, and she is 80 years old.  She still loves cooking and developing new vegan dishes for the restaurant, and she and Noel Furie, enjoy their customers , their community, very much.
