Annie, Get Your Gun

From my favorite blogger, - Heidi Li - a feminist, truth teller, leader of the next wave. A voice of reason in a sea of unbelievable discontent and unwillingness to accept that which is wrong.

The first group in the U.S. to wage a nonviolent civil disobedience campaign

Many others who believe, as I do, that this election season has revealed how far women have to go in the fight for full civil and political equality, have noted the work of Alice Paul, the author the Equal Rights Amendment, and a prominent force in the fight for women's suffrage. What many Americans do not realize is what a long, hard fight that was nor how original and intelligent Paul's tactics were. An extended excerpt from one source of information about Paul's life and times.
