The Clock is Turning Back? by The Elephant's Child


I am woman hear me roar, In numbers too big to ignore,”
Hillary is apparently planning to run on Women’s Liberation, to show that she is completely up-to-date. She warns in a new book that the “clock is turning back” on women across America and offers a passionate argument for prioritizing the advancement of women and girls. It’s 1966 once more.

[Fighting] to give women and girls a fighting chance isn’t just a nice thing to do. It isn’t some luxury that we only get to when we have time on our hands. This is a core imperative for every human being in every society. If we do not continue the campaign for women’s rights and opportunities, the world we want to live in — and the country we all love and cherish — will not be what it should be.

Well, I am woman too, but I’ve never been able to think properly of myself as a victim of a male dominated society. I have never been particularly impressed with the idea of “the first woman…” It’s fine to notice that Janet Yellen is the first woman to head the Fed, but her gender is not the important question, the important question is her capability and her intent.

Hillary’s career has been notable for starting things, advocating for things, but never accomplishing much. Her career as Secretary of State was notable only for the amount of air miles she racked up — and a reset button.
