Our comments after this article which we stumbled upon today.
Women were intentionally excluded as equal citizens under our Constitution for 228 years and counting. Our Forefathers consequently used laws to keep women in their place: couldn’t own property, or keep their wages, or file for divorce, or apply for credit, or speak in public, or be educated, or work overtime, or serve in our military, or walk down the street alone safely (we still can’t do that), or ride a bicycle, or wear pants, or escape domestic violence (we still can’t do this), or escape being raped by her husband (not sure about this either), and more…. Our legislators have carried on their legacy of oppression and still today deny women equal rights. Women have NEVER been encouraged to develop to their full potential UNLESS it is to support a man as WIFE or as MOTHER to his children. Even today, the daily diet of sex-laden, sultry images of women half undressed isn’t to lift women up or to respect us for our contributions to society which far outnumber men’s. Patriarchy exists is to keep Women down. To convince us that Hillary Clinton is a lying vixen. To not trust Women to lead our country of men. God forbid Hillary is portrayed as any less “vile” than Eve was to Adam. Careful voters, Hillary could be responsible for the Fall of Man. Or Patriarchy. We can only hope. For our Planet’s sake.
