These are the mad musings of a middle aged woman, dyke, nurse, poet. I have a dog, a cat, a mobile home, and delusions of grandeur.

Another Light Gone


Betty Friedan, sometimes referred to as the Mother of the modern feminist movement, died on her 85th birthday, February 4, 2006.

"I never set out to write a book to change women's lives, to change history," said Friedan, who always kept a sense of wonder about her place in history as the mother of the contemporary women's movement.

"It's like, 'Who, me?' Yes, me. I did it. And I'm not that different from other women…. Maybe my power and glory was that I could speak my truth as a woman and it was the truth of every woman."

If every woman spoke her truth, how might our world change?
