Do women deserve full "human rights"? The U.S. Senate isn't sure. That's why I'm writing to you from the World Women's Conference in Seoul, where I have been meeting and collaborating with women's rights activists around the globe.

Thank you, I will write to my Senators despite knowing that they will send me a "little lady" letter telling me that they want to protect me and that I can go bake a cake or something while they look out for my best interests.

Thanks for the post.

Noted with disgust. Ridiculous that this is even an issue at any time. Should have been resolved a very, very long time ago. The Senate needs to do the obvious on this and spend its time debating and acting on matters that are so obviously in need of time to thrash out. This one is a "no-brainer" and should sail through. Of course, at present, we do have equal rights with men: no one has any rights!

Note to the US Senate--- What is your definition of "Human"? And do women fit that definition? And if not, who else do you consider "not Human"?

Of course all women deserve human rights, all humans deserve human rights

As long as men are insecure we will have this problem. The question is : are your mothers human? your wives, daughters? Power is in the hands of men and that's where they want it to stay. Women can only strive to be their best at what they do and not get beaten down by the persistent efforts of weak men to keep them in their so-called place. The good news? women are doing it every day and whether men acknowledge it or not, more women are stepping up to the plate but, above all, we need to support each other.

This is the best you can expect from Bushco....and any of the NEOCONs-why should women in the U.S. put up with this-mothers, sisters, daughters, grandmothers, workers in and out of the workforce -you should ALL be INCENSED that YOUR government thinks so little of you. Get rid of these disgusting Old WHITE MEN who think women belong in their place particularly if they are middle class or poor-now those women can work themselves to death for all the NEOCONS care. And that is the TRUTH. Noted.

Well, I sent a message to my idiot Senators (Kyl and McCain could care less about people). I don't think it will help much sending a note to THEM, but maybe everyone else's will do something. I added to the text, of course in my ever-so-tactful way!!! lmao!!!
