Yesterday was HUGE for all women. Whether one likes Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi or not one cannot help but note that this is a big step for woman-kind. Aside from being a mother and grandmother, I have never felt so proud of my womanhood as I felt today.

I hope that the young women will begin to see what a true role model is. That Paris and Britney and the like are not good role models for anything of value. That Trump's promotion of slutty beauty pageant winners who tarnish their light are not shining examples for a young woman to aspire to.

I hope that women like Nancy Pelosi, Rosie O'Donnel, Oprah, all the congresswomen,female senators, mothers, grandmothers are the women to be looked up to. That intelligent, responsible women are more attractive, more vital, more important than a show of cleavage or the flash of a thong. The men who prefer the latter are not the men who will give you the respect and honor most women deserve. They are not the men who will stand beside you as you aspire to do great things.

I hope that men will see and know what a real attractive woman really is.
I hope that the media stops focusing and promoting women by appearance, clothes, boobs, hair color  or as eye-candy.

I hope the media pays attention to the milestone that women made yesterday as the story, the bigger story than the antics of a useless bimbette like Paris Hilton.

I hope this is the beginning of the ending of the media dumbing down of our young people and especially at what it has done to young girls.

Bravo Democrats, Nancy and those who see and know how HUGE this magnificent moment is.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
