Response to kmlisle (Reply #10)

49. Welcome to DU, kmlisle!

Glad you're here! That woman always amazed me. She was out there - as a businesswoman (well, of sorts), commanding big speaking fees and enjoying a high public profile and really getting ahead in the world, building her professional reputation and fame and fortune, taking FULL advantage of everything for which feminists had been fighting! For access. For equal access and equal treatment, breaking barriers down for women so that we could achieve in our own right, and be defined by and as ourselves instead of strictly in regard to whether we did or did not have a man, and to have the doors open and the playing field a little more level so we had a chance to work and expand and achieve and become and express, to NOT have to be hostage to the kind of gonads we had. Especially regarding personal choices, career choices, and life choices.

And all she wanted to do, and clearly still does want to do, was/is to undermine the feminist movement, turn the clock back at least 80 or 90 years (or decades, or more!) and drag the rest of us women and those who love us back to primordial times. Probably, preferably, to when women were property and we didn't have to bother our "pretty little heads" about any of this stuff. I just found that - well, dumbfounding! Seriously, phyllis? You're out there writing books and giving lectures and going on TV and making a fortune and actively influencing policy - that would relegate women to pink collar jobs only, with no opportunity for advancement or to be paid a living wage (especially many female heads-of-households who have no partner to help with the workload) because we womenfolk really all belonged at home with the kids and out of the workforce. So why aren't YOU home too, then? Instead of carrying on in the limelight all the time?

This woman literally built a career trying to prevent generations of women coming up after her from having the opportunities and choices she had. And she sure threw a lot of weight behind the fight against the Equal Rights Amendment. She did everything she could to slow down progress, if not stop it altogether and then roll some of it back.



That said... I hope the GOP does everything she tells them to do! Stick with whites only! Stay true to that diminishing demographic! All the better for the rest of us.
