Despite the nonsense and bluster coming from a certain orange man living in a certain White House, it’s impossible not to see where we as a world are heading – toward greater equality and perhaps, yes, maybe, toward an era of Female Supremacy.
Sure, the female candidate didn’t win the last U.S. election, but there were a number of reasons for that. What have seen from the man who won, since then, however, has been an embarrassment of riches and near tragedy.
Sometimes things have to get worse before they get better. We believe that’s what we are seeing right now. Unfortunately, sometimes people don’t heed the warnings of those who actually do remember the past. They need to witness first hand what bad shit really looks, feels, smells and tastes like.
We are seeing that, and women – more than anyone else – have begun taking the lead in winding the U.S. and the world back toward sanity. The protests across America and elsewhere in the world have demonstrated that more and more people are willing to act to bring the change that we all need and deserve.
We may have to wait until 2018 or even 2020, but when evil-doers are forced to show their cards, then they can’t lie and bluff any more.
When they push to curb women’s access to health care (from birth control to maternity coverage), when they seek to eliminate protections from corporate greed and malfeasance, when they give corporations more access to information about our personal lives, then they reveal who they really are.
No more bluster. No more lying to people whose only sin is wishing for a fair(er) deal.
Women are leading the charge against this. Pussyhats were the first salvo. Women will win, and the men who stand in their way will learn (perhaps to late) that they were standing on the wrong side of history.
To women everywhere: Do not despair. Instead, act up, speak out, and demand what is yours – the World!
