Women are not safe.
We are stunned.

Women are not safe.
We are stunned.

Our human rights were squashed.
People measured and deliberated and reminded us that it has happened to other people before.
Politicians, including Democratic officials, postured and bandaged the edges and
left us here in our state of shock and oppression.
Around the country, in little pockets, laws are being changed to hurt us more and faster. Innocent women
are being prosecuted. Their mothers are being shamed, and prosecuted, and harassed.
Bad guys and backwards, old fashioned patriarchs are testing what else they can possibly do to women,
now that we are on the ground, foot on our necks, weakened.

It is not time to rest on laurels.
It is not time to get one law passed, or distract
America solving this little problem or that little problem.

It is time to stack the Supreme Court.
It is time to impeach the cheaters on the Supreme Court.
It is time to work each day
on how to solve this simmering problem.
It is time to listen to women,
even when they are choking on fear and silence.
