Our daughters and granddaughters seemed to think the fight was over, the battle won. Thanks, Mom, Grandma, we'll take it from here. We have all we're going to get, we'll have these rights forever, now, and we can move on. WRONG.
As any other minority can tell us, the fight is never over. Unless we stay vigilant, we're doomed to slide backward, which is exactly what is happening We've become so complacent, conservatives feel the time is right to undo all the strides made by women in the past.
And, they've found the perfect vehicle to kill two birds with one stone - Obamacare. They think they see a way to repeal or damage the health care law and, just for the fun of it, take away the reproductive rights of those uppity women who should be barefoot and back in the kitchen, where they belong.
There couldn't be a clearer wake-up call for women to mobilize, again, and protect their hard-fought rights, and keep on fighting. First, we have to go to the polls en masse and vote the bastards out. Then, we have to stay vigilant so our hard-won rights will stay safe.
We may have won some battles in the past, but the war rages on.
