For a woman to question the patriarchy, her outcome historically wasn't good. This brave activist, Olype de Gouge, wrote a well thought out declaration to the lawmakers of her time.
Because she had the audacity to write such a thing, she was sentenced to death by guillotine. This is a reading of the writings that took her life, called “The Declaration of the Rights of Woman and of the Female Citizen,” published on 15 September 1791, written by Olympe de Gouge and read by Francesca Fiorentini.
i think heard it first the other day on "Rumble," a Michael Moore podcast, and it moved me. It's brutally honest, and is focused on the lawmakers; and how women, (the majority of the population), were not being represented in its laws. She is full of frustration. A feeling I know 70% of this country feel right now. This include many men.
I put this video together, audio of the Declaration, along with images of a few women who changed the world in one way or another. I find them inspiring. I'm sure each women had to deal with inequality at some point in their lives.
And I knew it was coming, but the reversal of Roe v. Wade still broke my heart. And every day after the pain does not go away.
Women need equal representation at the table. It feels so far away now. How do we get there?
