“No matter that patriotism is too often the refuge of scoundrels. Dissent, rebellion, and all-around hell-raising remain the true duty of patriots.” –– Barbara Ehrenreich

In case you are male and were busy yesterday getting ready for today’s big football conference showdown you probably did not notice the unprecedented political mass protest demonstration that women waged globally demonstrating their heated opposition to the newly elected president’s way of doing business on political, social, economic and moral levels.
They peacefully swarmed on the streets like ants on a picnic basket knowing that the way they felt about the new president could not be kept quiet.
Yes gentlemen , the oft labelled “weaker sex” demonstrated to the entire world that they had more spine and political savvy than many of the top gun politicians around the world.
Over 100 years ago the suffragette also made their voices and presence felt world-wide tying to get equality and the vote for women in a male dominated world. Many of these early day “radicals” were arrested.Their efforts did make newspaper headlines.
This might be the start of a new era in which women will no longer remain silent or be willing scapegoats in a world in which warped male egos slough off criticism of their foibles as just “being male”.
This is a healthy sign that females want their demands heard and noticed globally – gc
