A Herald-Leader female intern writing about the positive impact of the film “Wonder Woman” on girls (this old girl was in the front row) prompted my stalled piece about the negative impact of men running/ruling the country/world.
I don’t think people realize how suffocating male dominance is, whether or not we can see it since we’re seldom told/sold/shown another reality.
Women are 52 percent of society, but about 20 percent of our nation’s leadership.
Do you “see” white male radical conservatives in Congress and the states huddling in secret to dictate, as one example, diminished health care for millions of constituents, one-sixth of the country’s economy, while the so-called savings of taxpayer money are distributed to the already-rich?
Women, too, are unique human beings with one-half of the world’s brains and far more understanding, cooperation and compromise leadership skills and experience due to withstanding male dominance.
U.S. Sens. Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren and Oregon Gov. Kate Brown are my “sheroes” on that political island of embattled female warriors, with Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi and others before them showing the way.
Not as wonder women but every woman: you, me.
