A Woman Was Lynched Today is a brilliant new blog that highlights the problem of hate crimes against women. 4 women are murdered every day just for being women. This Sister is asking for help, and I know we've got plenty of material to send in, so I'm asking all of you to go by when you hear of a hate crime against a woman and give her the name of the victims. We need to drill it into the mass consciousness of America that there's a form of Apartheid in this country based on gender. If any country anywhere treated a group determined by race or national origin with such hatred and violence people would march in the streets.
Call a bigot a bigot and a misogynist a misogynist - let's not let domestic terrorism against women be dismissed as a private family matter anymore. Demand that we be counted, and that our voices be heard.
