Reflection

Just saw this quote by Lucretia Mott

The world has never yet seen a truly great and virtuous nation because in the degradation of woman the very fountains of life are poisoned at their source.

Very true today. No words just sadness

Politics is an ugly profession. There are never any winners.

The last few weeks have been very challenging. Actually, the last year since the Me Too movement began and the year before when the 2016 election occurred. All of the cultural events taking place are a reminder of how strong patriarchy is and how much misogyny and sexism are prevalent in society.

So today is a sad day when a woman casts the deciding vote to put someone with a questionable moral character for a lifetime appointment on the highest court but we are supposed to look for silver lining.

I guess we have no choice but to accept the reality and move on. Just tired and exhausting to face the reality of how little progress has occurred in the last few decades since another brave woman had come forward to speak her truth. She was mocked just like now. Perhaps one day we will look back and we will be able to say that today was a sea change for the women’s movement until then we wait.
