Hit one for the women’s team.
……Yesterday Tim who is in charge of the DNC blog
decided to put up a diary and promote a group of recently retired
military candidate, male and female and call it “The Band Of Brothers”.
I objected but neither he nor anyone else at the DNC had the courtesy
I think they were just not thinking clearly. So I decided to make this
fundraising page. It is not that money donated to swinging this bat
will go to female candidates only. But I would like to make this bat
about reminding the party that you can not take women and their issues
for granted and casual unthinking sexism is not okay. This is not
longer the 1500s and we now have women in the military and they are
giving as much as their male counterparts for this country.
So here is my band and all you women and men who care about Choice,
equal access, equal pay and equal rights… and the end to guys
thinking it is okay to call a group of veterans which includes women
“Brothers”, or if you just would like to make the point that we are
here and you need us to make this party whole, then swing this bat.
