Transcript J LIKE TO THINK OF HARRIET TUBMAN by Susan Griffin I like to think of Harriet Tubman. Harriet Tubman who carried a revolver, who had a scar on her head from a rock thrown by a slave-master (because she talked back), and who had a ransom on her head of thousands of dollars and who was never caught, and who had no use for the law when the law was wrong, who defied the law. I like to think of her. I like to think of her especially when I think of the problem of feeding children. The legal answer to the problem of feeding children is ten free lunches every month, being equal, in the child's real life, to eating lunch every other day. Monday but not Tuesday. I like to think of the President eating lunch Monday, but not Tuesday. And when I think of the President and the law, and the problem of feeding children, I like to think of Harriet Tubman and her revolver. And then sometimes I think of the President and other men, men who practice the law, who revere the law, who make the law, who enforce the law, who live behind and operate through and feed themselves at the expense of starving children because of the law, men who sit in paneled offices and think about vacations and tell women whose care it is to feed children not to be hysterical not to be hysterical as in the word hysterikos, the greek for womb suffering, not to suffer in their wombs, not to care, not to bother the men because they want to think of other things and do not want to take the women seriously. I want them to take women seriously. I want them to think about Harriet Tubman, and remember, remember she was beat by a white man and she lived and she lived to redress her grievances, and she lived in swamps and wore the clothes of a man bringing hundreds of fugitives from slavery, and was never caught, and led an army, and won a battle, and defied the laws because the laws were wrong, I want men to take us seriously. I am tired, wanting them to think about right and wrong. I want them to fear. I want them to feel fear now as I have felt suffering in the womb, and I want them to know that there is always a time there is always a time to make right what is wrong, there is always a time for retribution and that time is beginning. nWomen were put here for three reasons — to get into bed, to get up and fix something to eat and to get back into bed again."-Evel Knievel "I don't plan to elevate a woman to anything. I'm very careful on this subject.n-George Meany "I like the idea of being able to make women pregnant. A man likes to be king. Making babies gives him power. If you take that scepter away from him, he feels deprived."-- Marcello Mastroianni "The idea that you can defend this nation within the Constitution, under the law, and tell the truth is still considered a sort of childish, feminine position."- Walter Mondale "The only time I take out a chick is when I fefcl horny." - Mark Fidrych
