It is intended to share evidence of special interest targeting and to report on actions being taken across America to defend and restore women's rights.

The Myth of the 19th Amendment

The Myth of the 19th Amendment | Coffee Party Feminists | Scoop.it
In June, Hillary Clinton took the stage in Brooklyn to celebrate securing enough delegates to become the presumptive Democratic nominee for president
J'nene Solidarity Kay's insight:

It is important to celebrate milestones. It is just as critical to recognize them as markers on longer journeys toward freedom and equality. Especially in an era when states are using voter ID laws and other measures to suppress minority voting power, we should not turn the milestone of the 19th  Amendment into the myth of universal women’s enfranchisement. If we do, we risk diminishing the lengthier and more arduous struggles to achieve gender and racial equality in the political arena. Political revolutions take a long time and hard work. Hillary Clinton’s nomination for president is an important milestone, but not the final step, along this path.
