Transcript AN OPEN LETTER TO OUR SISTERS IN THE RIGHT WING--AND TO ANYONE WHO HAS EVER SAID, "I'M NOT A FEMINIST. BUT..." WHEN YOU ARE SEARCHING FOR CARE FOR YOUR CHILD because you must work out- side your home, we'll be the ones working for quality child care to benefit, not deprive, your child; to GIVE something, not take something away. We will be the ones standing next to you, demanding the BEST for our children. WHEN YOU LAND IS BEING TAKEN AWAY FROM YOU after your man has met death, we will be the ones standing beside you denying the tax collector the inherit- penalty, which will be exacted only from you. WHEN OPPORTUNITIES ARE DENIED TO YOU, and your position in work remains the same, we will be the ones standing with you, showing your qualifications to all, and fighting for equal employment opportunity for you. WHEN YOU HAVE SPENT HALF A LIFETIME with a man who has left you with nothing, because he no longer sees you beauty on talents, we will be the ones fighting for benefits and training so you can get a job to sustain yourself. We will be the ones in front of you with open arms. WHEN YOU AND YOUR CHILDREN HAVE BEEN BEATEN, left with nowhere to turn, we'll be the ones giving refuge in homes and centers we've established. We'll be the ones fighting for more of them, because we can't bear to turn you away. We'll be the ones assuring you of your own worth, and we'll be helping you regain your dignity. We will be the ones embracing you when you enter, and we will be the ones in the back of you, watching you walk away proud and whole. WHEN YOU HAVE BEEN RAPED AND TOLD IT WAS YOUR FAULT, we'll be the ones supporting you int he courtrooms, seeking justice for us all. We'll be the onles listening to your rage at the violation done to you. We will be the ones standing in front of you with open hearts. WHEN YOU CAN STAND IT NO LONGER; WHEN THE SUPPRESSION IS TOO MUCH; when you've had all you can take, we will be the ones waiting for you with open minds. We will be the flame Igniting the spirits lost over thousands of years. We are the ones with tear-stained faces and weeping hearts, asking freedom from injustices. And we are strong enough to lend you our aid, for our strength and determination are endless. WE ARE YOUR SISTERS, and we are Feminists.
