Before I get into the movies for this week, I want to say this about Roe V Wade.
Women have fought and died to have a freedom that every man has always had. The right to have health care. When I worked for Safeway as a dept manager. I had insurance but it didn't cover any "women problem" That's how it was worded. This was in the early 1980's. In the 1970's I was not allowed a credit card or utilities in my name. My husband had to be named. In the early 1960's my dad beat my mom on a regular basis. When she called the police to press charges the cops told her she would have to go to jail too and the 6 of us kids would go to the state home. My mom dropped the charges. My grandmother stood the line at age 13 with her sister and mom to fight for the 19th amendment. My mom, my sister and I stood the line to fight for Row V Wade. Women were beaten, slugged in the stomach, hit over the head with clubs by men who didn't want us to have rights. The constant fight we women have to endure to have equal rights in this country is the shame of men and now other women in power. It doesn't matter your view on abortion. It's not about abortion. It is about the maga party taking away our rights one by one right in front of our eyes. Find out what you can do locally to make the change for all women. Even if you are not a blue voter, vote blue. This fight is bigger than ever before. If the maga party gets in more than it is now we are lost to democracy. All rights are at risk. What are you going to do about it?
The first movie is, " Suffragette"
The title speaks for itself. Staring Meryl Streep and Cary Mulligan and takes place in Brittan.
This is on Netflix.
The second one and a must see for everyone is, "On the basis of sex."
On the Basis of Sex is a 2018 American biographical legal drama film based on the life and early cases of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. You will be surprised what her fist case was.
