Ed, you're right.  Whether anger, marches or days named after a group is part of the answer, I don't know.  I know people hate it when women get angry.  It isn't well-tolerated in U.S. culture.  We women probably don't realize the power we already have if we, ourselves, didn't concede to the cultural values at play.  But we'd have to opt-out in pretty significant ways to make  cultural change.  We're so intertwined with it all.  American women fully realize the rights we enjoy.  We also realize what needs to change.  Women chose to march now because of Trump.  Because he gave voice to misogyny and sexual abuse.  And then we elected him to lead us.  Seems like a good time to march.  A good time to say that as a nation we may have elected you, but we didn't elect THAT.

And, that's why some of us men do what we can to support equality.

Just follow the "golden rule", regardless of gender, age, race, religion, nationality, or heritage.

Thanks.
Can I have some syrup on my pancakes please.
