What Gives Me Hope
That America may SOME DAY pass the ERA that all nations since WWII already have! I've told the legislatures "you've seen us (ERA INC) in the capitol hallways and in your offices. You're gonna keep seeing us there whether in a wheelchair and on oxygen, BECAUSE we are going to DO this!"
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
Declare ALL PEOPLE EQUAL and deserving of equal treatment under the law.
I would make impeachment or recall of officials easier to accomplish.
What/who changed my life and why
The Feminine Mystique, Betty Friedan. Because it gave a name to what we American women face every day--sex discrimination. Men and boys do, too, but less often and less egregious.
