Amid the government shutdown where the powerful men in charge aren’t working, women are out there getting the job done.

AMEN. Our own president proved he isn’t the most apt figure to discuss female reproduction after his epic fail delivering a speech at the March for Life rally this week.

Thousands of women will come together in Las Vegas for a women’s march convention. The theme is “Power to the Polls.” From the womensmarch.com: “From the Women’s March to the Women’s Convention, we’ve seen how powerful we are when we gather together, share space and lift each other up. Join us in Las Vegas as we prepare to take that power to the polls.”
It looks like all the women out today aren’t backing down on electing more women to public office.

“I want her to know she too can run for president, run for Congress. She too has rights.” Amen to that — Kennedy’s got my vote.
