Planned Parenthood president tells white women to 'do better' in fight for equality

Boom! Fact! Said by a white woman and as one myself I must agree.

.........................................

The president of Planned Parenthood called on white women to do more to "save this country from itself," crediting women of color with many of the recent political victories.

"These victories were led and made possible by women of color," Richards said.

She urged white women to join forces with women of color to change the nation.

"So, white women, listen up. We've got to do better. ... It is not up to women of color to save this country from itself. That's on all of us. That's on all of us," said Richards, who also heads the Planned Parenthood Action Fund.

"These victories were led and made possible by women of color," Richards said.
She urged white women to join forces with women of color to change the nation.

"The good news is when we are in full on sisterhood, women are the most powerful, political force in America," she said.

6. The apple does not fall from the tree.

She is her mothers daughter. Sharp, strong. inspiring and motivational.

"The good news is when we are in full on sisterhood, women are the most powerful, political force in America," she said.

7. For sure. Governor Richards was amazing.

"George Bush, born with a silver foot in his mouth." never forget that line from the Democratic Convention. Can't remember the year.

9. The headline took me aback, just a little.

Upon reading the expanded version, I am totally on board.

10. I agree but I feel like us white women that are trying

Are the only ones listening. The ones who need to do better are not paying attention.

13. Yeah, definitely a case of preaching to the choir

 

I don't disagree with their sentiment, but it may turn off those who are on the fence. There are better ways to engage people.

12. Good on Cecila Richards! Black Women are our most Important Resourse

because they're smart activists who get out and fucking VOTE. They know who to vote for to make our Country Stronger.



Mahalo for the encouraging and inspiring piece, she!

17. She's not wrong...

Republican stepford wives won't hear it, but the country is teetering on the brink. There are many states where black women can't repeat what happened in Alabama because they don't have the raw numbers. We're getting an influx of women candidates this year. Perhaps this will motivate other women to at least pay attention and get out and vote.

Hell, the real problem of the last few decades is lack of participation. Women are half of the population. Increase their participation numbers and we'll make some progress.

18. I've yelled this since 1975.

But, as a female, wasn't listened to.

YOU GO GIRLS!
