Vaginas, In Michigan and Elsewhere
I am enormously proud to call this woman my friend, and to do everything I can to promote her work. I believe she is the most important voice speaking out on sexism today. This video is in relation to her recent attendance at the 2012 National Organization for Women’s national conference, and to the celebration of and by Eve Ensler there.
(Warning: a few four-letter words.)
The things Karen speaks of are things no one wants to hear or talk about–neither old-school “social conservatives” nor modern day “liberals.” In the best tradition of old school journalism, she afflicts the comforted and comforts the afflicted, and she has the audacity to say it out loud when the Emperor has no clothes. Even when I don’t agree with everything she says, she says things that desperately need talking about that no one ever does. And the hatred and contempt she receives is only further proof of that to me. But you watch it and you be the judge.
