RT @thejuliettes Okay, today I decided to express my rage.
Please feel free to re-tweet it. Pic Twitter

I AM A WOMAN

And NO MAN, NO GROUP OF MEN, AND NO INSTITUTION OF MEN hold dominion over me, my mind, my body, my life, my choices, my vagina, or my uterus

If you attempt to restrict my access – or my sisters’ access – to health care or contraception, WE WILL FIGHT YOU AND WE WILL WIN

Do not fool yourselves for ONE MOMENT that you have the right to speak for women, their choices, their thoughts, or their lives ANY MORE

Your attempts to own us, to harm us, to control us, to dictate policy to us, to impose your will over us – IS AT AN END

You look scared, and I can smell your fear. And you should be afraid. Cause we aren’t going to take your shit anymore.

We know how to direct 80% of the buying power and we know how to vote.

The age of old, crooked, white men is over. Consider this the death knell. Deep down, you know it. And we know it too.

Oh, and one more thing – deprive us of access and we will deprive YOU of access. If you take my meaning.

WE ARE THE MAJORITY

WE ARE THE 52%

It's great! Quote Gems throughout! More power to Rock Women! and All Women!

....and for those who remember her is the original:
Helen Reddy in 1975 I AM WOMAN

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.
