Women live…

feminism, anti-war, international women, solidarity, sisterhoodIt won’t help us to elect women to offices of pow­er, if they turn around and vote for huge mil­i­tary bud­gets. This recent­ly hap­pened in the vote for the US Nation­al Defense Autho­riza­tion Act of 2017, the largest “defense” bill in his­to­ry which passed 89–8 in the Sen­ate.  Of the 21 women sen­a­tors vot­ing (16 Democ­rats, 5 Repub­li­cans), only one Demo­c­rat woman vot­ed against it. That means 15 Demo­c­rat women betrayed, and made inse­cure, women here and around the world. There are approx­i­mate­ly 3.8 bil­lion women in the world; 126 mil­lion in the U.S. For whom does our fem­i­nism stand?
