Trump wages war on women twice this week.

One of the leading causes of death for young women is murder by a partner — often involving the use of a gun.

The statistics are terrifying: women suffering from domestic violence are EIGHT times more likely to be killed if there are firearms in the home.[2]

But President Trump wants to cut all grants under the Violence Against Women Act, leaving women in dangerous relationships without the vital support they need.

“The Avenging Uterus” aimed at “The Donald”

I just couldn’t resist this cartoon about “The Avenging Uterus” directed at “The Donald”. I just roared. http://www.dailykos.com/story/2016/05/18/1527420/-Cartoon-The-Avenging-Uterus-vs-Donald-Trump?detail=email&link_id=1&can_id=465aaa9fb617a07ec81c1bad251fa95c&source=email-cartoon-the-avenging-uterus-vs-donald-trump&email_referrer=cartoon-the-avenging-uterus-vs-donald-trump&email_subject=cartoon-the-avenging-uterus-vs-donald-trumpClaudia's photo (1)

Feminism is not a negative word. Women across the world are joining in the insurgence of gender equality

Emma Watson of the Harry Potter series gets together with Malala Yousafazai the young woman who stood up for girls going to school and was shot in the head in Pakistan. These two strong women. from completely different worlds, come together to work toward a better world where girls go to school and women are empowered.

Educating girls will improve the world, start the path to healing and empower women worldwide. Women are the majority in the world. Tackling the pay equity between men and women, should be our goal for this decade of women going forward.
And where are the 275 girls that Boko Harem Islamic group kidnapped and married off? We must not forget them, ever. #BringOurGirlsHome

Another reason I like my Congressmen Ron Wyden. Women need pay equity now. 76 cents on the dollar isn’t enough

It’s been 95 years.  95 years, this week, since women won the right to vote in America. 
And yet, the political battles still rage — about whether women should have the right to make their own health care decisions.  About how we can ensure that women are paid the same wage as men doing the same job.  About whether corporations can decide to deny female employees access to birth control.  About whether we’re going to take violence against women seriously.
Now that the presidential race is in full swing, we’re hearing one crazy idea or comment after another about women’s healthcare and equality.  It seems that they just can’t help themselves.

A beautiful tribute to Georgia O’Keefe.
