    and that is why this gets so difficult.  We have to deal with INSTITUTIONAL MYSOGYNY that has become worse under this administration.  What ever happened to the feminist world view anyway?  Has this yet again become the F word?

    And yes, I agree, I noted that Cutts was a police officer which made this incident even worse.

      we let feminism become a dirty word. If it wasn't for feminism, many of us wouldn't be were we are now!!! I am proud to call myself a feminist and more women and men should do the same!

        to talk with some very successful women nowadays
        People I admire and respect
        (or so I thought)
        They are in their 30's and will argue to their last breath that they are not a feminist.
        They are in the tops in their field in traditionally male held jobs
        lawyers bankers.
        If there were no feminists they would not have those jobs.
        It is that black and white.
        To me feminism encompasses every choice a woman can make whether it is to stay at home or not.
        I am proud to be a feminist and you won't find one plaid or flannel shirt in my closet;)

          supporting the right to equal protection under the law, to own your property and to vote and hold elected office.  The right to safe abortion care comes within equal protection as well as the right to privacy- both protected by the U. S. Constitution (but not all states) therefore national precedent (like Roe) is necessary so that individual states can't violate the equal protection clause.  However, they're getting damn close.
