2. Didn't know about this project, I will check it out. Thanks. Alicia Garza has been working hard

 

Saw her on Kamau Bell's show a few weeks ago. She's a force to be reckoned with. Love the work she's doing with Cecil Richards and Supermajority women.

5. I don't watch CNN and looked up Kamau Bell's show. Thanks, tulipsandroses,

 

for that as well as Supermajority women. Wow!

For those of us who don't know.

What is going on? Women, of course, are divided by race, age, class, and much more. Our power is fractured; the powers that be often work to keep it that way. Often, even promising feminist initiatives address those fractures belatedly, if at all—and then wonder why their membership rosters remain so…white. That’s how the new women’s political action group Supermajority promises to be different—and if women can unite across the lines it’s proposing, we indeed make up a supermajority in the United States, and we can chart the future.

Specifically, Supermajority says it will mobilize 2 million women ahead of the 2020 elections while building energy around a “women’s new deal”—an agenda to meet the needs of 21st-century women, from closing the persistent pay gap to “staggering child care costs, rising maternal mortality, no family leave, and a government that continues to fail women,” the group announced in its introductory press statement. It seeks to support as well as increase the rising numbers of women running for elected office. Although women make up about 54 percent of voters, we are only 23.7 percent of Congress; that’s even after the spectacular surge of 2018.

Maybe most important, Supermajority starts with the goal of building “a multiracial, intergenerational movement for women’s equity.” If you want to know what’s different about this group, it’s that simple: having that ever-elusive objective of full inclusion as a founding premise, not an afterthought.

7. Yup, looked up Kamau's show and see it's in its third season.

 

I'll be binging this week.

The women surely are working on intersectionality and consolidating our issues as a force to reckon with. It's so long overdue
