I found this incredible article this morning, as I was scrolling through my Facebook feed.
I want to share as we look at the nunmbers listed above.
The mandate for governing isn’t his … it’s hers.
I was taught the definition of ‘democracy’
ONE PERSON = ONE VOTE

No You Can’t : Why I’m Still Crying Over Hillary Clinton’s Loss
I thought I had it together. I thought I was moving on, “getting over it” as the world kept telling me to. She lost, he won. The only thing we can do is keep fighting. We are seeds, we are safety pins, we are stronger together.
The realization hitting me.
~I AM HER~
And here was the root of my pain. This wasn’t just about the disappointment that my candidate lost. Or the fear of what Trump will do to this country. It felt like my very soul hurt and I realized that it was because of what this election said to me as a woman. It said no.
I am Her.
Every woman is, whether they know it or not. Every woman has been held back by, pushed down by, grabbed in the pussy by sexism that cannot, will not, allow a woman to rise higher than a man. The misogyny that pulses through this world, the blood that keeps the dick of American patriarchy hard, it penetrates us from the day we are born. Smile pretty. Be good. Be quiet.
Hillary Clinton stood up for women and when the world slapped her back down, my cheek felt the sting. I know that there is work to be done, battles to fight, toddlers to raise into Nasty Women.
