I wrote the attached essay in 1994 and reading it today sends chills down my spine. Almost 25 years later and we are far worse off! We have a president that demeans women, a Congress that still bans bare arms in the capitol and we are on the verge of having a Supreme Court that will overturn Roe and set women’s rights back 100 years. I, like many of you, fought that fight back in the 60s and 70s and it is appalling that here we are fighting the same fight for our granddaughters. How and when will things change? When we elect women that will not take a back seat to any man and who will stand taller and fight for the rights that are inherent to every human. WOMEN stand tall and take action – THE TIME IS NOW!
