Women, Independence & Declarations

The New York Times kindly published the Declaration of Independence in print and online. You can see it here.

But as all Americans should know, there are huge chunks of our population who were not covered by that document, certainly not as fully as others. Kathy Groob has a nice post about its failure when it came to women.

And this post, by several legislators who are women, including my state senator, Nina Turner, declares the current state of how women contribute and need to continue to contribute – aggressively so – if we want to be sure that no other declarations related to this  country excludes so many Americans, for so long.

How did you declare your independence, today or at any other time in your life?
