The New Supermajority

Cecile Richards is partnering with Alicia Garza of Black Lives Matter and Ai-jen Poo of the National Domestic Workers Alliance to mobilize activists with their new group, Supermajority.

Resistance hasn't resulted in what women want, and so The Supermajority. Thousands have joined its rollout today. Rachel Maddow interviewed Cecile Richards tonight, who has beautifully articulated what actions women have awakened to taking.

In collaboration with its separate education division, Supermajority will train women on how to participate in politics and activism in their communities, both online and on the ground.

One of the main goals of the group is to create a womens New Deal for gender equality, the cofounders said, an agenda that their members can push candidates and legislators to adopt.

The group will also focus heavily on mobilizing voters during the 2020 primary and general elections, Richards said, but she added that it was too early to say whether the group would endorse a candidate in the Democratic primary for president.

4. I am in awe of Cecile Richards and what she has accomplished over the years

I'm sure any effort she is a part of will be worthwhile...

5. Indeed. Her younger equal partners are forces to be reckoned with, as well.

7. I'm in 100%.

Even my spouse is telling me were just not ready for a woman president...not that I agree with that and I know its hard to hear but it is true... It breaks my heart and Im sick to death of hearing it. We are good enough to birth your babies...were good enough to raise them and run your households and checkbooks while working at our own careers but for some fucking stupid reason, we cant run a country...THIS country. Women can be presidents and prime ministers of Germany, Britain, New Zealand etc... but America? Nah...sit down honey and wait your turn. Nope. Im over it.

9. I was thinking about the same after I watched this on Rachel Maddow.

I have always said we would be better off with a woman president but the US is not ready for one yet. It makes my blood boil. If we women hadn't, and still are, been second class citizens who must obey laws made by men in religion and politics for over 2,000 years the world would have been more peaceful. I think it is the female nature to handle issues without violence and harm more than men do. Just look at who does most of the killings during peaceful times.
