This has been a very hard, very sad day. I cried, I yelled, I vented to my daughter and my friends. Now what I asked them and no one had an answer. We are numb; we are disheartened; we are shocked. But most of all we are angry! I personally am enraged. How can it be that we represent 51% of the population but still have no voice? How is it that women are turning on each other and playing right into their hands? Let’s face it. The Republican senators did believe Dr. Ford but they don’t care! Let that sink in. THEY DON’T CARE.
We are at a crossroad and we can’t and we won’t go back. This is not the country I want for my granddaughters. I’ve been fighting this fight throughout my life – years of male bosses coming too close for comfort; years of being told I wasn’t as smart as the men in the room; years of taking this treatment and I am so done.
So what do we do now? We turn years of anger and frustration into action! THIS IS THE TIME. We’ve lost many battles but we can win the war.
First we vote and we volunteer for female candidates and if possible we donate to candidates that share our values.
Then we research. What companies promote women? That’s where we shop.
And we won’t forget. Every day take just five minutes to contact a senator that voted yes. Let them know we are watching, we are here and we will win the war!
