You Are Not Equal. I’m Sorry.

I feel like you didn’t address the original piece at all. They in no way disavowed what women have done for us in the past, and the women’s march in no way was synonymous with the achievements of those women. The piece specifically addresses someone who says that “We will walk for you. We will fight for you. We will stand up for you.” with this:
“Where were you protecting our rights when that poor helpless woman was raped behind a dumpster and the rapist served only 3 months?

Where were you protecting our right when the US Women’s Team was fighting for EQUAL PAY?

Where were you protecting our rights when women soldiers fought to be in the front lines?

You were NO WHERE- You had so many opportunities to stand for women in the past 8 years, and did nothing.

So stop giving me the speech that you are “protecting my rights.”

You can’t protect women’s rights when it’s only convenient for you- you protect rights at EVERY moment you get- NO MATTER who is President. That’s the true definition of being a feminist.”
