IWD / INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY / in the U.S. A DAY WITHOUT WOMEN was Wednesday, 8 MAR 17. This was one of the most robust IWDs in recent history, at least in the U.S., in recent memory. The misogynous drumpf/trump-pence administration has women fired up and organizing. After all, this is the (NOT MY) president who, we found out during the 2016 presidential campaign, likes to grab women by the pussy (with the vice (stressing VICE)-president's approval) and has shown how much respect drumpf/trump has for his own wife by publishing pictures of her like that at the top of this post. Women in America have been the sleeping giant in American politics, but they are awake now. It will be interesting to see if the level of outrage and activism can hold till and thru the state and local elections next year. I hope so, and I think we can be sure this White House will keep pouring fuel on the fire. From +Daily Kos and +Democracy Now!
