In what is arguably one of the most contentious elections in recent history, the backlash against Feminism and indeed Feminists has become a rising tide. Anti-Feminism and indeed Misogyny is something that we have come to expect from the Right Wing self-professed “Christian” American Male.
In light of this we tend to drown out the Willful Ignorance. We know there’s a War on Women. We know that we are not receiving equal pay for equal work. We know that we are underrepresented in all aspects of life, particularly in political leadership. We know. We get it.
It’s astonishing that in 2016 we are out there fighting the same fight our Great-Grandmothers, Grandmothers, and Mothers fought. However, We Can Do It. We are out there with our Daughters and Granddaughters. We will not be silenced, we will not give in. We will march in the streets, we will petition, we will vote…
…except that there is a large growing number of women who don’t want women to vote. Yes, you heard that right. Women like the despicable Phyllis Schlafly and the aggressively stupid Ann Coulter who has said, “If we took away women’s right to vote, we’d never have to worry about another Democrat [sic] president.”
As unbelievable as it sounds, yes there are women who would stop other women from having equal rights and voting.
So what do we do about it? We are the evolved. We are the Activists. We are not going to sit quietly and allow anyone to take away the rights for which our Ancestors fought vigorously.
So in the spirit of Liberal Nation Rising, here are links where you can volunteer to help voting registration and educate others on the issues facing our modern Sisters.
