Believing Women - Anita Hill and Now Dr. Christine Blasey Ford

Many of us were very young girls when the brave Anita Hill came forward.

Today, we are women and witnessing Dr. Ford do the same.

Laying down on the very sword of her own truth, an unfortunate one that was not of her own doing, before the country and the world who still deems that "boys will boys" and the things of the past are just that.

As if the potential seat and assignment that Kavanaugh may take, like the one Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas so proudly occupies, isn't one of unrivaled power and immense responsibility. Dictating the very autonomy, provisions, and protections that will be afforded to women.

An appointment that no one should take lightly especially a system that consistently resounds that it is "For the People.”

Well, we, THE PEOPLE, the EMBOLDENED WOMEN of this country say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

Our eyes our watching.

Our hearts are aching.

Our votes are ready!
