Gloria Steinem and Dorothy Pitman-Hughes, 1972 and 2014
Both by Dan Bagan
Wanna see my cry like a baby? Ask me who these women were.
Hughes’ father was beaten nearly to death by the KKK when she was a kid, and what does she do? Become an activist to try and stop that from happening to other people. She raised money to bail civil rights protesters out of jail. She helped women get out of abusive situations by providing shelter for them until they got on their feet. She founded an agency that helped women get to work without having to leave their children alone, because childcare in the 1970s? Not really a thing. In fact, a famous feminist line in the 70s was “every housewife is one man away from welfare.”
Then she teamed up with Steinem to found the Women’s Action Alliance, which created the first battered women’s shelters in history. They attacked women’s rights issues through boots on the ground activism, problem solving, and communication. They stomped over barriers of race and class to meet women where they were: mostly mothers who wanted better for themselves and their children.
These are women are who I always wanted to be.
We need your help.
This is Brody. Brody turns 14 on 10/21/14. With age has come some complications—over the past three years we’ve battled pneumonia, arthritis, and deafness—but he has lots of good years left with the right care!
Brody has a tumor in his back toe. On 10/23/14 the vet will remove his entire toe, and he’ll check to see if it’s spread. Brody’s already had blood work, toe and chest X-rays, blood pressure monitoring, medications, and an aspiration of the tumor. His vet bills are piling up fast.
By donating even the smallest amount, or even just signal boosting this post, my friend can afford to give her beloved pet the help he deserves.
Please help Brody— donate here.
