The ‘Woman,’ The ‘Mother’ of Humanity Must Have ‘EQUAL RIGHTS’

 

 

Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

 

“The cause of the slave has been peculiarly woman’s cause.” Frederick Douglass

 

 

A large number of women supported abolition, and most men believed it was women’s high moral standards and their tender hearts that the two monumental reform movements came into being.  The abolition of slavery and women's suffrage, the two movements inescapably tied together, both sought to secure the American promise of liberty and equality for all people. Abolition was the mother of the suffrage movement. 

 

NOW IS THE TIME FOR THE NATION TO FULFILL ITS PROMISE.

 

We the people, white and black alike should never forget the woman. Because of her courage and high moral standards and her tender heart, she defied the evil misguided way of life system of slavery during a time when social standing, race, and gender defined a person's place in society. Courageous women were involved in the common cause and dared to fight for freedom and equality.

Equality before the law without distinction of sex or color.

Now is the time for the nation to fulfill its promise.

 

EQUALITY BEFORE THE LAW WITHOUT DISTINCTION OF SEX OR COLOR.

 

Sojourner Truth was the first African-American woman to make public speeches about the connection between the rights of slaves and the rights of women. 

 

Harriet Tubman escaped slavery to become a leading abolitionist. She led hundreds of enslaved people to freedom along the route of the Underground Railroad.

 

Her torch was inherited by other women, Mary Church Terrell, the daughter of slaves, spoke out against lynching and campaigned for human rights.  She became an advocate for women's rights and joined the National Women's Party in picketing the White House.

 

While most of the courageous pioneers involved in the abolitionist and suffrage movements saw some of the fruition of their efforts, they knew the fight had just begun; though the 13th Amendment outlawed slavery in 1865 and the 19th gave women the right to vote, the struggle for equality continues to the present day.

 

Lucretia Mott, Susan B. Anthony, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, ran for Congress in 1866. Carrie Chapman Catt, Anne Dallas Dudley founded the Nashville Equal Suffrage League in 1911.

 

ELIZABETH CADY STANTON DECLARATION OF SENTIMENTS STILL STANDS AS THE TORCH OF WOMEN FREEDOM

 

Sojourner Truth, born into slavery, became free to fight for women's rights.

 

Inez Milholland Boissevain rode a horse for hours in the March 13, 1913 Suffrage Parade in Washington DC, the first of four mounted parades. She collapsed October 23, 1916 while giving a speech for women's rights. While she was collapsing, she exclaimed, “President Wilson, how long must, how long must, how long must women wait for liberty?”  Inez died a few weeks later from leukemia. Her words became the battle cry of the suffrage movement.

 

Elizabeth Avery Meriwether in 1872 published her own pro-suffrage newspaper The Tablet. Her husband was a confederate soldier and a friend of General Nathan Bedford Forrest. In 1867 when Forest and some of her husband’s other friends were visiting their home, she asked the question, “But when will women have the right to vote? I have been taught to believe that taxation without representation is tyranny.” To which Matt Galloway, editor of the Memphis Appeal replied, “You know very well your husband will take care of your interest.”  Elizabeth rejoined, “Who will take care of the interest of women who have no husbands?” That question was never answered then. However, the question is passed to a new generation of women patriots, dedicated to freedom and equality for the women of America. 

 

NOW IS THE TIME FOR THE NATION TO FULFILL ITS PROMISE. 

 

TERRORISM ANYWHERE IS A THREAT TO FREEDOM EVERYWHERE…

 

In the nuclear age, one nuclear bomb has ten times the power of all the Allied Air Force bombs used in World War II according to our great former visionary President John F. Kennedy. We need the Mother of Humanity, “the Woman,” to help us in our hour of need at the negotiating table of mankind for human survival.  Her contribution can and will make a difference.

 

It will be significant to note how timely and appropriate this speech of yesterday (John F. Kennedy, June 10, 1963) is so applicable to today’s nuclear deal with Iran, along with the incendiary conditions in the Middle East, and the global expansion of terrorism.  The world is in a state of TOTAL UNREST!!! We must therefore persevere in the search of peace in the hope that constructive changes within the Middle East bloc might bring within reach solutions, which now seem beyond us.

 

As President Kennedy warned, “Above all while defending our vital interests, nuclear power must avert those confrontations, which bring an adversary to a choice of either humiliating retreat or collective death wish for the world.”

 

NOW IS THE TIME FOR THE NATION TO FULFILL ITS PROMISE. 

 

WOMEN MUST HAVE EQUAL RIGHTS

 

WORKING TOGETHER WORKS

 

The evil misguided way of life system must go…eliminated, disassembled and destroyed

 

All presidential hopefuls (candidates) must make the commitment to the American people that they will eliminate the evil misguided way of life system, that makes wrong right and right wrong; that makes the victim, the criminal; that denies women and people of color their God given inalienable rights.  We must unite: women, minorities and people of color, organize our votes – withhold our vote from any candidate that doesn’t give us the commitment to eliminate the evil misguided way of life system that contradicts our founding principles; liberty, freedom, justice and equality.

 

Thus far the only presidential candidate Donald J. Trump has made the commitment to create a whole new system…

 

We the people, the American People, prayerfully urge the other presidential candidates to follow suit by giving us their commitment to eliminate the evil misguided way of life system.

 

To claim that you are going to make changes within the evil misguided way of life system, leaving the system in tact, is MEANINGLESS…AN ABSOLUTE JOKE!

 

“Its doesn’t matter who people vote for. What voting does is legitimize and perpetuates a racist, oppressive, hierarchical system of government owned and control by big business interest.

Taking it to the streets is not likely to be effective as long as the people continue to vote to authorize militarize U.S. law enforcement agencies to suppress demonstrations by any means necessary.

 

For their to be change, people have to stop having faith in any and all aspects of system oppressing us, withdraw our consent, and delegitimize the system. STOP VOTING” –BAR-

 

 

NOW IS THE TIME FOR THE NATION TO FULFILL ITS PROMISE. 

 

WOMEN MUST HAVE EQUAL RIGHTS
