marrying eleanor roosevelt

eleanor roosevelt.
need i say more?
talk about an amazing magnificent brilliant gracious perfectly imperfect woman.
i mean while ms. lohan is about to get out of jail, waiting to collect a million dollar paycheck (post jail interview), there are women (and yes men) who fought and campaigned and brought dignity and humanity to this world we live in. they did it quietly and selflessly.

there are tons & tons & tons & tons of folks who deserve to be acknowledged.

    Alice Paul.

    Did you ever see the movie Iron Jawed Angels? Lindsay Lohan ought to be forced to watch it every day of her incarceration until she understands where her freedom, which she squanders, comes from.

  2. PamelaJo

    Katharine Houghton Hepburn,

    Katharine Hepburn’s mother. She fought for the suffrage movement and helped start Planned Parenthood.

  3. Madge Woods

    Betty Friedan

    Cicely Tyson, pure class.
    Gloria Steinem, pure guts
    and one of my all time faves Lucille Ball

    Damn I’m really aging myself!

    Imogene Coca & Hillary Clinton

    Imogene was one of the funniest ladies on TV…ever…left no comedy stone unturned…brilliant…a role model before her time…

    And Hillary…makes me proud to be an intelligent woman…

    Amelia Earhart – talk about a woman who opened the doors for women in a MAN’S world. First woman aviator to cross the Atlantic on her own, and seemed to know early in her life to follow her instinct.

    Karen Meredith…her only child, Ken was killed in Iraq in 2004. She visited the white house and the pentagon to get laws changed that kept parents away from their children’s caskets when they arrived back in the U.S. In spite of her overwhelming grief, she single handedly spoke for thousand of mothers and fathers throughout our country and got policy changed.

    Sandra Bullock. Yes, seriously. Not on the level of Elenore Roosevelt, to be sure. But the class and dignity she has shown while dealing with a terribly public humilation and her subsequent divorce is not only a lesson for not only celebrities but us ‘mere mortals’ as well.

    Well, I’ve always loved Annie Oakley, for being a total badass when people thought there was no way she could pull it off. Amelia Earheart, as well. Aretha Franklin. Laura Ingalls Wilder. I’ll think of more throughout the day, I’m sure!

  9. Debbie

    I love Gloria Steinem. Too bad so many young women today don’t know who she is or how she made it possible for them to do what they do without being sexually harassed, etc. Did you ever read ‘Revolution Within’? LOVED IT. She is incredible.

    I like me. I vote for me but no one ever votes for me. Don don’t like that. I even tried to pay some people but they ran off with my money.
    Since that happened I vote for, let me see,

    Sandra McPherson
