Hillary : We've Come a Long Way, Baby!

In recognition of the Seneca Falls Convention in 1848... As I said yesterday, yes, we have come a long way, but as this video demonstrates, we have a HELLUVA long way to go. We can get there, but it is going to take a lot of hard work. I had no idea how much until this election cycle in which I have been truly shocked by the level of sexism and misogyny. By our politicians. By the Democratic Party. By the media. By Obama's supporters. Shocking, and appalling.

Hillary Clinton is the role model we need. Her continued grace under fire, her ability to stand strong in the face of the rampant sexism, is awe-inspiring. No doubt, she is exactly the kind of woman who fought for our right to vote. She has demonstrated time and time again her willingness to fight for us - women, children, veterans, lesgianz, gay men, bisexuals, trans-gendered, Native Americans, elderly, poor, middle class..Let her be an inspiration to continue this struggle for women's equality.

Again, Happy Anniversary! Now, let's get to work!
