Bella Abzug's feminist schlemiel standard achieved

“Our struggle today is not to have a female Einstein get appointed as an assistant professor. It is for a woman schlemiel to get as quickly promoted as a male schlemiel.”

-Bella Abzug

Part of social change are the results you’re not fond of. Opportunity means opportunity for everybody. We can thank the feminist movement for Palin (as well as Bush who paved the way for her as a national candidate at this point in her career). We can also thank the feminist movement for Ifill as moderator and Biden being choked up in public.
