Marilyn Launches
An Irregular Monthly Curmudgeon Newsletter
Marilyn Fitterman
 
Hello All: I'm trying out a new one-click way of reaching all my friends and associates with news, opinions and attitudes.
 
It should go without saying that I will attempt to make this column progressive, feminist and provocative. 
 
I hope you'll stay tuned and feel free to get back to me with your thoughts.
This launch is in honor of Women's Equality Day. This being the week of the Democratic Convention means that many of my pals are in Denver working, demonstrating and lobbying with the intention of convincing enough delegates to vote for Hillary. Nope, many of us have not given up. 
 
After the initial shock of having the rug pulled out from under us when we tried to put a woman in the White House, and after about eighteen million of us grieved, many of us got angry and continued our efforts by contacting delegates. Thanks to some really wonderful web-sites like the Electability Watch (EW) and Women Count, to name just a few, we banded together, sending thousands of emails and snail mails and as many phone calls. EW actually supplied many of us, via the web, with Super Delegate labels to use on the snail mails.
 
So August 26th is Women's Equality Day, commemorating 88 years since we got the vote. Let's remember that it was our dear friend Bella Abzug who, soon after entering Congress in 1971, had the day declared Women's Equality Day as a national day of celebration. So celebrate, rejoice and put your wishing hats on that by some miracle Hillary takes the ticket.
