I was at a political meeting last night, in support of Sharon Sund, who is running against some guy for the Democratic Party nomination for MN Third District Congress, and eventually, against Erik Paulsen, who now “represents” the district. As we were breaking up and starting to head out, two women I was standing near started talking about which women’s issues should be underscored in an upcoming event. Someone suggested “There is only one issue” and they both looked at the speaker to see what it was. “Getting a woman–this woman–elected to Congress!”
And then spontaneiously the two of them sang every verse of “Bread and Roses.” It was awesome.
Anyway, I can’t really reproduce that event for you but I can show you this video I just got from Moveon.org:
“We women have a serious problem with the Republican Party”
And now …
Oh what the heck, let’s do that again with a slightly different feel:
And, what does it all mean?
Thank you Katie and Samantha.
