dam nice of the Illinois senate to give express priority to get roe v wade sent to the scotus.

 If you read about the brouhaha in Missouri, it looks as though women may soon not have an abortion clinic and all the other wonderful General Health, gynecological  and obstetrical services that Planned Parenthood does provide women in that state.

But Kansas City is on the state line and all you have to do to get any kind of women's health care that you need is Take 5 minutes and cross that State Line Rd.

For women who will demand whatever they want in terms of their civil rights and health care who live in St Louis,

They may have to get in a car and take a little longer than 3 hours to get to the State Line Rd.

*Missouri has always been a backward state next to Kansas,

 trying to influence us to have slavery and Jim Crow and who knows what else.

But we hold our own around here.

Trump impersonators, women costumed as handmaids, even dressed-up dogs. See them all in the best photos from the anti-Trump protest in London.

In Japan, the minister of health has dismissed calls to ban current requirements that women wear high heels at work.

He said today that such attire is "necessary and appropriate."

 

More than 20,000 women in Japan have signed an online petition to ban the mandate.

"The group is part of the #KuToo movement – a combination of "#MeToo" and the Japanese words for shoes ("kutsu") and pain ("kutsuu").

“It seems like men don’t really understand that wearing high heels can be painful and lead to injuries,” Ishikawa told Reuters....

I think it’s “necessary and appropriate” that all MEN in Japan wear high heels to work for just one week

and then we’ll see what happens to those requirements...

Meghan’s steadfast refusal to participate in the Trump circus was generally greeted by the public as an appropriate response to Trump’s bizarre insults of her and his history of misogyny and racism

Helen Clark Can Do It All: Run A Country, Fight For Women's Rights ... And Snapchat

When NPR asked Helen Clark if people are tired of talking about gender equality,

the former prime minister of New Zealand responded: "Well, women aren't tired because we're not there yet."

What E. Jean Carroll describes here is a rape, and it’s clear who the perpetrator is. The President is a credibly accused sexual predator—but misogyny endures. Even Carroll acknowledges, “I run the risk of making him more popular by revealing what he did.”

Renato Mariotti Retweeted Scott Bixby

E. Jean Carroll is at least the 16th woman to accuse Donald Trump of sexual assault.

 women are not afraid to speak out anymore.
