    But this passage:

     

    And many, very many, will simply not know how to shift gears in the messaging and tactics still necessary to translate that new-found majority status into lasting social change.
    sums the plight of the organized women's movement perfectly. In the early 70s, we thought women's rights had been "won." Women were "equal." Today, we are looking at the Stuebenville rape, and at horrific, consolidated official moves to roll back reproductive rights and choice.

    It sounds a cautionary note for the cause of lbgt rights, recently victorious. Relax a moment. Enjoy your success. But re-strategize and gird up again soon.

    The phases change. But the fight can never end.

    Thanks so much.
