#ImWithHer

Hillary Clinton H logoI want to be honest here. Until last week I was a supporter of Bernie Sanders. Despite some depictions of Bernie’s supporters as a bunch of heathen, misogynistic¬†“bros” or misguided boy-crazy young women, I know I am not the only feminist who supported him.

But now that Hillary Clinton is the Democratic party’s nominee, and the Platform¬†includes so many of the things that made Bernie my choice in the first place, I am happy to say loudly and proudly that #ImWithHer.

To my fellow Bernie Sanders supporters: if you haven’t already done so, please read the Democratic Party Platform (linked above). I would say that they heard Bernie. They heard us. And, Bernie is standing with her too.

Could we please not…

In our efforts to point out hypocrisy on the part of other parties and their supporters, could we please not engage in misogyny? To quote First Lady Michelle Obama, “When they go low, we go high.” Let’s go high.
