I had an interesting experience while volunteering for Barack Obama's campaign tonight. The room was packed with women. Dozens of women in one tiny little local office. They were all there for the same reason I was: they were terrified of the idea of Sarah Palin as VP, or worse, as President of the United States of America. Fear of Palin and her radical, anti-woman views had moblized the whole room of us. One woman had brought her young son with her. He ate his supper and colored with crayons while his mother called voters in New Hampshire. I enjoyed the sort of warm-fuzzy feeling that comes from knowing that feminism is alive and well in the US. Intelligent, concerned women won't be fooled. Whether or not John McCain or the Republican base know it, we understand the myriad differences between Sarah Palin and ourselves. We're looking out for ourselves, our children, our communities and our country.
What a feeling!
