I hope no one ever put their hands on me because I'm not responsible for my actions. After a while, a women will get tired, fed up, of taking the physical and mental abuse. Then when her life is threaten, (as many has been) and she takes matters into her own hands to either live or die and choose to live, then she's the one arrested and locked up. Hell now, girls, women, DO NOT LET ANYONE PUT THEIR HANDS ON YOU. Men, it happens to you too. Don't let any women hit on you just because she knows she can get away with it. Sad to say, I know some men that will knock the hell out of a women if she slaps or hits on him so I pray they never meet those men I know. Point blank, keep your hands to yourself. Violence is not the answer.

Kudos to the V-Girls! Can they get the attention of their Reps. in Congress?

Gene J. Well-said! I tried to send you a star, but care2 seems to be having star issues today. Consider this a green star for you, sir!

Gene J., were you a woman in another life?! But really, thanks for your words, it so good to see a man who always stands up for women and is a positive force. Thanks to you, Gene.

And V-Girls, keep up the fight, don't get tired and "old." Take all your energy and change this pathetic world. I'm sure every woman who watched your video saw a part of themselves in you. You have our support. So if you see a woman on the street, ask her if she knows about V-girls, I'll bet she'd give you a hug and ask what can she do to promote you more.

Stand up and stand tall Women!

These girls are *fantasttic!*

As a grandmother I continue to fight for women's equality. I have also joined the worldwide fight for financial equality. It's wonderful to see these young women coming together in an ongoing cause for women's lives.

Inspirational.

I hope these girls can accomplish their goals and help the women of the world move forward...not take a giant step backward!
